Don't send out a search party  
You know I'm busy when a national election that goes well for my party is hardly on my radar. I didn't even turn on the tv on election night, that's how tired I was. But hey, new Speaker of the House! Woohoo!

On the bright side, it's interesting and varied work and as soon as I learn it I'll be in charge of my own schedule as long as I get the work done by deadline.

Meanwhle we're apartment hunting. I have an appointment to see my dream apartment, sounds like, on Monday at 4:30. Large two bedroom, fireplace, large kitchen, fenced patio, one and a half bath, split level (for some reason they seem larger to me, or the one at UCSC certainly did).

Just wanted to log on and say I haven't disappeared.

I saw today in the newsletter that one of my former coworkers has also left the company. I figured that would happen sooner or later. She was working on her graduate degree and I knew she'd want to do something with it other than stay at the same company forever and ever. Good for her and I'm glad my other former co-worker, Westi, got promoted.

My daughter heard today that she can get into some housing very soon. I haven't heard the details but it sounds like it's low or no cost. She also found childcare and got a paper route in her name to supplement her aid. So they should be doing much better too.

And where ever I end up, I should be warm this winter. Fireplace? Insulation? One way or another I'm not freezing for another year. It seems like things are looking up.

Glad things seem off to a fresh start, it was proverbially 'dark before the dawn' there for a while, though! See...for me, the new year began with Samhain, perhaps for you as well!

Yes, I think the tide turned then. It will take awile for the changes to reach full force but things are looking up!

Thank you for all your encouragement. At times the only thing keeping me going was knowing that people were out there rooting for me and I wasn't alone.

Bright Blessings on this New Year!
