If I had to guess where my life would be today, six month ago, I would never have guessed where I am today.

Yes. Seriously. My life has been turned upside down. Totally. I am trying to roll with it.

To top it off, I now have a dog, in addition to the cats. The dog’s name is Santana and he is an American Staffordshire Terrier.  It is a long story on how we got him (yes WE) but we have him now. The cats are adjusting, sort of.




Since I am still unemployed, I am home all of the time with my new friend, Santana.

I still see the kitties and give them my love.


Eli is a great photo subject.

Speaking of We, my guy now lives with me, which is good because being unemployed, he will help with the rent. Life is strange. I write this post about how I am meant to be alone and then I meet him. He is good for me and I am happy with that part of my life.

I am paying out of pocket to go to my therapy appointments. It is not too bad but I needed it, badly. I am spending a lot of time alone, because of the dog, but I am trying not to let it bother me. I do try to get out but between the dog and bad IBS-like issues, I have been spending a lot of time home.

The job market for jobs in commercial real estate is not very good but I am chugging along. I am sending resumes and cover letters and the lot but I am starting to feel the desperation of unemployment.

More tomorrow – I promise.
