What is π and why do you want me to find your X


Yes my friends, I have asked this question.  Heck who am I kidding, I'm still asking this question!! Why is it that everyone around me including kindergartener's knew that "π" was 3.14444...   
Except for me?  What are they adding to Enfamil (baby formula) these days, Algerbraic enzymes? Seriously right now?  Really?  Are you kidding me?
This is my life these day's,  I am now a full time student!

I did not share earlier, but I must share now.  I lost my job the day before Thanksgiving of last year.  Happy Holiday's right?
NOT!!  I was devastated to be quite honest with you!!  It was totally unexpected!
I think, no I know, that what hurt me the most is that not a single co-worker has called me, texted me or emailed me to see how I am doing...
Wow, talk about compassion right?  
That just re-instates to me the financial crisis America is facing as we speak.  Everyone is scared to lose their jobs!!  No I'm not joking, I am being serious for once! Either that or everyone hated me, which I know is not true!!  I had some friends there, at least I thought I did, heck I was there for 8 years!!  Obviously not!!  
My husband just kindly reminded me that I have always kept my personal and business life separate.  So I guess that would account for some of that then huh?  Oh well...

I walked out feeling shocked and bewildered!!  I didn't think I would have a hard time finding a job because of my education and experience.  
Well I am  here to tell you, if you are a "middle age something, something", you are now CONSIDERED OVER QUALIFIED!  After several sessions with my career counselor, she suggested I go back to school.  I agreed with her, even though I was highly hesitant.  I mean back to school?  With like college kids and all? Young men and women, my kids age? Meaning, I am the oldest one in the class including the professors for the most part... "Hello McCfly"??
So this is where I am, back to school as a full-time student.  I am attending school with kids my own kids ages, however, there are quite a few students my age and older to be honest.  
I am actually enjoying it for the most part except for math!!  Freakin hate math!!  

So with that being said, I want to tell you I won't be posting 3x a week as before.  Studying is hard, and because I'm old and slow, it's even harder "don't ya know"!!  Hey, that rhymes!!
I hope you are patient regarding my posting.  I will be posting but not as often during the week as I normally do!!  
I want to thank you in advance for your readership, loyalty and support!!  That means the world to me!!  ♥♥♥

For now my friends, I am off to figure out  what the heck "X" is...

Till next time!!

  1. Good luck to you Didi! I am lucky to have been contacted and consoled by my co-workers and clients. I would feel horrible if suddenly cut off like that. Please keep us up to date as far as what school is like. I don't think I could do that....more power to you!

  2. Didi, I for one am very proud of you! I always wanted to go back to school and never did. Now I'm just too old! We had been approved for adoption and and that's when I decided I'd wait, after all we could get a baby just any day. Well, 7 years later I took the nursery down and decided to go back to school. That very week we got the long awaited for phone call. Three weeks later they placed the most beautiful baby girl in our arms.

    You are going to do GREAT! Hugs!!

  8. Good for you Didi! I know how hard it is to find a job and I can relate with you. I have been without a job for nearly 2 years now here in Greece. With the crisis here it is absolutely impossible to find a job... Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are going to just fine! xoxoxoxo

  9. Didi doll, you know how proud I am of you and you will get through this hurdle:) I'm sure you don't have time for "fun" reading right now, but maybe during one of your breaks you can check out this book by Jen Lancaster (I think that's her last name). It's called "Bitter is the New Black". It's a chronicle of her time looking for a new job and is very funny and poignant. She turned her writing skills into her new career. Hint hint. Love you to pieces, LD

  10. didi...i am surprised about you losing your job. You mean when i get better it will be hard to find a job?
    looking forward to hearing about your adventures at school.
    (clearing throat) you may notice that a lot of folks can't write a sentence much less a paragraph and they are going for the same job as you etc. ( uh huh) you get the idea!!lol

  11. Thanks Didi,
    I am one very sick woman.
    I have done 2 of 4 chemo and soon after that they will give me a 10X dose chemo and then a stem cell transplant from someone else. Then 4 - 6 weeks in the hospital and a few more months of recovery. It is a long journey.
