Needless to say, December 2011 hasn't been very kind to me thus far. But it's going to get better! I managed to get most of my Christmas shopping done before I got sick and injured, so I just have a few more things to pick up before the big day (which I have all planned out since I had plenty of time to think about gift ideas while I was staring at the ceiling). And Hubs has the whole week of Christmas off, so we're taking off to Denver for a few days. We're staying at the same hotel we stayed in when we went on our road trip a couple years ago, which was a pretty saucy time that we're hoping to relive. I even got a little somethin' from Vic's Secret to keep things spicy! Yep. Lots to look forward to. ;)
On the job front... nothing to report. I finally admitted to Hubs (and myself) that I am terrified of going back to work. I'm even terrified of interviewing! There are so many thoughts circling my brain about it. I'm afraid that I'll end up with another job that I can't stand; that I'm wasting my life away doing work I hate and having no idea what kind of job would make me feel more fulfilled and productive. And that, even if I do figure out what I want to be when I grow up, I'll never find a job in a field I enjoy in this crappy economy. So there you have it. I'm a coward. And I'm not real sure how to overcome it. I may go to the career center in town and take an interview workshop or something to help get my confidence back up. I guess that would be a reasonable first step, right?
So things are mostly good and a little confusing. I guess that's not so bad all things considered. I'm feeling a lot more relaxed and happy (minus the past week or so, of course) than I have in years, and for the most part I'm focusing on that.
Now to venture out into the world for the first time in DAYS. Hallelujah!
