Well, it has been exactly a month since I last wrote. I did a really great job of doing better and writing more often, didn’t I?
So many changes in the last month. Where to begin?
Well, I lost my job 3 weeks ago yesterday. I finally managed to wind up on Geoff’s bad side and he had me fired. Notice I say that he “had” me fired. This is because he’s way too much of a coward to actually do it himself. I take some comfort from the fact that before I was fired, at least 30 other people were…in the space of 2.5 years.
I’ve also been working with my parents toward emptying out my grandparents’ house. It is a horrible, emotional minefield. I’m trying to come to terms with the knowledge that (1) my grandparents are really gone forever and (2) I will never again be really welcome in what was their home and I will never again sleep there. I feel as if I’ve lost my only “safe place” in the world.
I’ll get through this. I always do. It is just more “stuff” to be processed.
