Six months ago I knew where I was going every day - the same commute for 21 years.  I held a key position with a respected company, I made good money, I had an office with a view, and everybody knew my name.

Now I spend my days scouring the job listings, amazed that nobody wants me, stunned by my change of fortune, and wondering how I will keep the family afloat.

When my daughter was little, and I variably got lost on any road trip, I would tell her “it’s an adventure!”  In the last 3 months I’ve been a band director, a gym teacher, and an extra in a horror film.  The adventure is just beginning!
