At least I'll have more time for blogging

It seems like I only have time to post big, life-changing events...and then I disappear. Well, here's another one: I was terminated from my job on Monday. At high noon. (Isn't that cute?)

I had to let some time pass before I felt like I could write a post about this, although some of you reading this already knew. Thank you for the emails, FB messages, tweets, texts, and phone calls--it's wonderful to know that so many of you care. A few of you have even given me some direction about where to look.

What happened?  Part of me doesn't want to get into it and part of me wants to go on a word rampage. I don't remember if I wrote about this, but back in April, I was reprimanded for something with the "promise" that if things didn't improve, the next step would be termination. I guess they felt like I didn't improve, however, I will say that I wasn't given much (if any) direction on any progress, how to go about improvement, etc. yet, in that final meeting, I was told (among other things) that I should have just known and that my boss "needed someone that I didn't have to tell things to." Should I have been a mind reader?

Who knows.

I'll have more to say about this later, including what's been going through my mind as I try to figure out my next step. Stay tuned!


  1. Give me a break! Your boss wanted you to be a magic mindreader 100% self-starter? Good luck finding someone like that


    1. I know. Ohhhh, I know. I was so much in shock when I got the news that I didn't even think to try and ask for specifics or try to argue my case. Not that it would have helped, since their minds were made up.

      Thanks again for the tweets of support :)

  2. Sorry to hear that! Praying that in the long run you'll be glad it happened (and praying that your next boss is not looking for a mind reader).

    1. Thank you so much!!! I have a feeling this is all what God intended, which I'll talk about in a future post :) I hope my next boss is a complete 180 from this guy.


Speak up!
