Thanks for all your good wishes recently.
I am still around.
Have just been busy – crazy busy – trying to get things settled on the work front.
Have also been transitioning all kinds of things, things you never think about really when you work full-time. Stuff like my contacts. I had many in my iPhone, but not all, so that was a bit of a mad dash.
Then there was my twitter account. I tweeted on a work account and had over 1,000 followers, but no more. So the first week I was off, part of my time was spent opening up a new Twitter account (you can follow me at @LaurieGrassi!), following those many followers with the new account and letting them know where they could now find my personal tweets. (If you're not familiar with Twitter, that's probably all Greek to you!)
Next: researching new software for my computer. Some of what I had was pretty old, but sufficient, because, well, I didn't actually really do work on it – I did that at work...
Also, I had to research some tax implications for my income this year. Fun, wow! My eyes glazed over while I was doing it, but it was necessary.
And looking at things like how to reduce costs, and how to pay for my medications if I lose my insurance and I have to get the government to cover me, etc., etc., etc. Which, in the whole scheme of things, is my biggest concern, along with getting another job, of course.
Good lord, I'm having a fun couple of weeks. But at least I'm keeping plenty busy!
