Pretty much it can be summed up thusly: I got a job. (Background.)
No, I won’t keep you in suspense about it, and get straight to the reveal-disclaimer of who it is: Smart Solutions. They’re a web and software development company and, well, I’m doing web development work (again).
The job started the 3rd, right after the first day of school, so in a way it’s like I was on the school schedule: I got the summer off and then went right back to work, in tandem with the kids. Since then, there really hasn’t been much to report: most of my time has been taken up with full time work again.
So… yeah. It’s taken some adjustment, going from full time to half time to unemployed to full time again (learning a new job, no less) over the course of six months. But, I realize I’m lucky too; I know people who were (are) out of work for longer than that. And I like the new job, so—fingers crossed.
