Twenty two months since I was laid off. That's how long it takes to replace a good job.

[Thank you for great friends with leads and bush beating abilities, for strong family and unconditional love, for contract positions to tide me over, for a beautiful city to explore in the meantime. Thank you for all the wonderful "in the meantimes". ]

Yes, congratulations ARE in order. My bottle of Stella Rosa is chilling in the frig waiting for me to get home. I brought the bottle with me from Wisconsin to Washington. It is finally time to enjoy it. I have arrived.


  1. YAY! That's great, Sarah! I'm very happy for you!

    Congrats, too!

  2. Congrats Sarah! Enjoy the celebration!

  3. What? Congratulations!
    Now I wonder if it is the job I knew about, or one I didn't. In my book you were employed all along because you always had work. No perks or long term security, I guess. What's a Stella Rosa? Is that anything like Schlitz Malt Liquor? If so, stay indoors, SML is arrest me juice. Like a cop magnet!

  4. I wonder if they still make that? Been out of the loop awhile

  5. It's the one you knew about, Juan.

    I've been good about keeping a paycheck coming - even between contracts. Those contracts - espcially when they are ending - are nerve wracking.

    [Still doing the happy dance]

  6. That is fantastic news, my friend! What a terrific Christmas gift for you. Congratulations! Michele C.

  7. Congrats and Cheers!!!
