I keep not writing, because I haven't written. Logical huh? Oh, and because I don't like my blog design anymore, but I'm trying to put that aside and put myself back onto the interwebs, because I miss all of my blogging friends.
Anyway, I couldn't quite stir any creativity while at my last job. It required many hours of serious thinking and writing and it also paid me, so blogging had to hit the back burner. Or it got stuffed into the bottom broiler that never gets turned on. However you want to say it.
But now, I'm currently unemployed and feeling quite free and creative and I'm trying not to think about the blog design, all so I can bring you another installment of This is Katie. Good times, eh?
In the 8(+) months since I last checked in, many wonderful, life-changing things have happened.
First, we moved part way across the country. Then I flew back to our old city and I finished out the remainder that creativity-stifiling but very interesting and important job. It had been for a one year term, so I needed to complete that term even though our move overlapped a little.
At the same time, Mr. Rh started grad school and started studying more than we knew was possible.
And while much of this was going on, we also started house shopping. Then we got a new (old) house and moved again(!) while he was enjoying his fall break. This move required many hours of painting, but hardly any repacking since we had the foresight earlier to stop unpacking when it looked like we were going to get to move again. It also involved supervising workers who were making repairs and changing things on our house. After this stint of supervision, I decided I went into the wrong profession and should have been a site manager instead of a whatever I am because for some reason, workers fear me. And all this time I thought I was an approachable, friendly human. Guess I look more like a grouchy boss.
Other than those life things, a few minor things happened too that have required me to start cooking more and crafting a little. I feel energized and excited again. Join me?
