Wow, I haven't posted in a long time! i didn;t have the mental energy.
Things got really, really bad at work. Then they got worse. Then I quit.
I'm working now as the marketing and communications manager for a non-profit that provides before and after-school programming and summer camps. The same program the boy has been going to after school since his first day of kindergarten.
And. I. Love. It.
Everyone is nice and caring and the whole point is to provide quality programming for kids, whereas the whole point of my last job was to make money for an already filthy rich family. People here assume you know what you are doing until proven optherwise, which is the opposite of where I was. And we have a budget and are expected to spend it wisely, and not constantly asked to do more with less, and all profits go into improving services. Unlike...well, you get it.
I'm not sure how often I will post but I can feel my head rising above the water line.
