Safe and Sound

After a week in the cat hospital, Shoes Lebowski is finally home. The whole ordeal ended up costing nearly $2,000. But, it's ok because...I have a new job! After a year of freelancing, I was offered a wonderful position (with salary and benefits!) at an amazing company. I even get my own office -- on the 24th floor of a downtown LA high-rise...

So here's hoping this is the start of a new chapter in my life -- and an entirely new career...For the next few days -- before I start my job on Monday -- I'm enjoying hanging out with Shoes
and relaxing...

Reading Annie Proulx's Bird Cloud is doubly sweet.

What happy news! Many congratulations to you, Tina! I was out of work for 21 months, up until November, and I know how difficult it can be to cope with. I wish you all the best in your new job, and enjoy spending time with Shoes. How wonderful that your kitty is home and in good health!
