I think only one other person is apt to still be owed significant money. But I should contact him.

ETA: I also now rather desperately want to achieve food coma status so that I my brain will stop churning around this thought. Or possibly dive into a junky novel or play a bunch of fast paced video games, but I'm pretty sure that the food coma is my preferred choice right now.

Sorry to hear about that Tad, I got downsized (figuratively, not literally) on July 1st and received a decent package that has given me the summer off, plus extra time to re-evaluate what I want to do next. Anyone who remembers my old posts about my job should know there was no sadness when it happened. A lot happened in the last year or so since I disappeared from Dims, and one thing was something I expected a long time ago. The company got sold earlier this year to a massive corp who said that "nothing would change for the foreseeable future", with the predictable results.

Anyways, back on topic. What's pissing me off today is caffeine withdrawal. Ever since I've been off, my immune system has been out of whack so I'm trying to readjust everything. I even had a summer cold a few weeks ago.

Matt, sounded from all that you'd written that you were maybe ready for something fresh? I know I was, and I should have looked sooner ... part of what had kept me hanging on at the old place was the idea of how much severance they'd owe me, and how I could probably bank a lot of it once I found another job. Well, I think I doubled up for about three weeks, which was not worth how long I hung on, I think, but what is done is done. My only real regret is that being under the gun for finding a new job, I accepted something something out in the Kanata North Industrial Park, which is is not only much farther of a commute but is also a pretty boring, sterile, place. I've been spoiled for the last ten years by being able to go out the building at lunch and actually having stuff around me, not just parking lots and office buildings (and one strip mall)

Yeah, maybe I should have left sooner. I left on good terms, got recommendations, etc. I'm ready for the change finally, but I really wanted to take advantage of the freedom for awhile as it may well be my last chance to take time off before retiring someday. Not a great summer to be off, but other than a few hiccups here and there I have been able to get a lot of stuff around the house done.

I can't rule out staying in my industry as that would be foolish, but I'm really craving something different.

The good news is that there seems to be a fair bit of hiring going on around the city. Not trusting all these new fangled job summarizing sites, I also looked at every company in Kanata North Industrial Park, and if they did anything that seemed like it might have a job for me I went looking for the careers page on their website. A couple didn't have such a page, but the rest all did and only one did not have at least one position listed. They weren't all good positions, or of interest to me, but the contrast to the last time I was hunting in 2005 was dramatic (nobody wanted to openly admit to hiring or they'd get avalanched by applications).

(I did also go through the new fangled careers sites, Linkedin, etc, but it was a position I identified by the method above that I ended up taking)

My enabler-mother is driving me absolutely, stark-raving nuts. On Thursday night, she has a big fight with the Old Man about how things simply can't go on this way. She tells him that she's going to an Al-Anon meeting with me and my grandmother on Sunday. This fight has been had so many times. Nothing changes.

Then, on Friday, she hides all the alcohol and threatens to monitor him as he quits cold-turkey. Brightest idea I've ever heard. He pretends to quit. Zero withdrawal. It's magic, didn't you know. She didn't even monitor him worth a damn.

Today, they go out to a WINE FARM and both get plastered. IF she even goes to this Al-Anon meeting tomorrow, she'll probably be all "woe is me."

It's incredible. The woman is an absolute ninja at mental acrobatics. I'd be laughing my ass off at the ludicrousness if I weren't so utterly exasperated.

I'm ready for fall but I am pissed summer has passed so quickly. I'm being forced to move so I will be unsettled during my time of the year..... Halloween is my favorite and this year will mark a full year without my guy.

Sorry that you are having to move at this point. Here's hoping that the season helps make the move more invigorating than draining.

I'm pissed off that my ******* ex-landlord refuses to give me any of my deposit back after he bought the place, forced us out, and then never contacted us ever. He wrote up some ******** charges and then sent a flippant, snarky e-mail only after I threatened to bring it to court if he didn't contact me back. What a ******* *******!!! Buhhh!

I'm sorry you have to go through that, having to move against your will sucks!!! I just had to go through it and it ended up costing me an arm and a leg, took my small savings fund and maxed out my credit card while only putting me under so much stress that I ended up losing my job.

I hope things go very smoothly and fortunately for you during this stressful time. I hope there will be some silver linings for you; with me, I now live in a place that is waaay more beautiful and awesome, and I'm happy to come home every day.
