Two weeks ago I received some surprising news at the office:  my position was eliminated.  

I've been laid off before, which is a bit of a blessing in this case.  When something unthinkable happens and you live through it, it makes other unthinkable things less unthinkable.  I've bounced back before and I will bounce this time, too.

I have been looking into moving back to the west coast.  The timing is somewhat dramatic, but the option appeals greatly.  I am working hard to leverage all my resources, and I have a little time to make a decision.

And who knows - maybe there's a cute green bungalow tucked up in the PNW with my name on it.  <3
