So today, we moved into our new office.
Palatial. Swank. Posh.

And hey: my little cubicle is "all that AND a bag of chips".

(insert wry grin here.... )

Some days I really do miss being my own boss and having my own business.... there was so MUCH I loved about being an entrepreneur. But then I remember how absolutely terrifying it was when I went 5 months straight with no income when all my clients, save one, dried up and blew away like so many tumbleweeds....

So I am THANKFUL that I am employed.
And that I have a paycheck, guaranteed, on the 15th and 30th of every month.

And really. Our new office IS really nice. I'm not really sure why being there today underscored what I used to have, and lost, but it did....

Time to go find that Glass Half FULL mentality.... it's around here somewhere...

A posh office? So nice :) I had to go into the dirtiest house in America today. And a pit bull lunged at me. It was not a good day 'at the office' for me! : ) I am glad tomorrow can be better : )

It would be a huge bonus if you did not have to commute as far?????

I'm so happy that you have a gorgeous new office. But I know what you mean about the freedom and independence of self-employment. On the other hand (shades of "Fiddler on the Roof"), a regular paycheck and benefits must be nice! It seems that you were wise and caring to take the necessary step for your family. "To everything there is a season," right? Perhaps, in another season, you days of self-employment may return. Blessings to you in your new work "home."

These days, having a job is in itself posh. A nice one to boot? That's great!

I might hit you up next year for those silver balls, just don't tell anyone. :)

Yes.... I am thankful. Truly. Just hit one of those little "speedbumps" yesterday.

And Pumpkin, you just let me know when you want those silver balls, girl. I'll hook you up.

Yes. These days a job is a job is a job. But nice offices are wonderful, too!

Maybe when things get better you can be your own boss again.
