Happy New Year

It's been a little while since I posted for lots of reasons. Where to begin. . .

I lost my job right before the holidays. I thought I might the end of December, but it wasn't for the reasons I expected, (company issues, not anything I did). I was sort of relieved, but at the same time, who wants to lose their job right before the holidays?! Luckily, I did most of my shopping before hand, so it's been manageable. Unfortunately, no luck on the job front yet. I've been spending my days job searching and that's about it. Trying to stay optimistic and fit some exercise in.

Christmas was real nice. Just stayed here with the Otter. I cooked dinner for us. I think I got as close as I ever will to the meals my mom made! Got lots of cool presents too!!

Our very nice tree: (The otter was reluctant to get one at first, but I made it very clear I would be disappointed if we didn't have a decent sized one! In the end, I think he was very pleased with it!!)


Congratulations to the Eagles for a good season! They got further then a lot of people may have anticipated, and there's always next year. It's a shame they couldn't go further, but going through New Orleans was tough. (Congrats to the Saints for making their first ever Championship - there I said it!!) Since the Otter is a Saints fan, I have to put on a smile and route for the Saints!

Just had a preliminary phone interview for a financial position. . . yup, maybe headed back there. . .

Wish me luck. Anyone want to hire me, feel free!! :)

MARIE!!! email me so I can talk to you!!! (bonjourlori@gmail.com)
So happy you found me, I must know more about what you're doing in SF and who is Otter? (BTW, I assume he's not a hologram, as he got you an Xmas tree.)
(Is the hologram reference Quantum Leap?)

Great guesses Lori! Now if she would just update her blog a little huh?

Honestly, there’s nothing really exciting going on to update it with. My biggest news of the week is that I have 3 interviews next week (one they are flying me to), and I finally drove across the Golden Gate Bridge! Which is not even "newsworthy" to some. And you're one to talk - your blog is out of date and where are the rest of those London pictures you've been promising?! I know you did more then go to an Ice Bar. :)
