Today was the first Monday in a new chapter of my life. On Friday, September 21st, was my last day at Supervalu where I had worked for six years and five months. I was part of a lay off. Without disclosing details, I want let my readers know that I will survive and I am looking forward to writing a new chapter.
I reflected on what has happened in the last six years and five months...well...the list got pretty long. Things happened that made me laugh and made me cry. Things I want to remember always and soon forget.
I started a "To Do" List that includes sending out countless resumes & cover letters, meeting with friends, cleaning the condo, going to mass, writing blogs, and working on the 12 in '12 List.
After my meeting this morning I decided to wander into Sur La Table in Edina, MN; I enjoyed every step. I could have spent a lot of money in there.
As I walked to my car with bag in hand (of course I bought something), I had a moment that was the scene in a movie where the actor is walking and the voice over is what the actor is thinking, but in the actor's voice. I started thinking in my voice over of what I want to accomplish.
I could smell onion rings. It gave me an idea for a new blog series.(More to come)
