Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Changes galore…

Well as you can see, I have a new home for my blog.  I decided that I would to make the move before the blog got very big.  There are so many things that are possible when you are on your own domain.  I haven’t written for a few days due to the move, but I should be back in the saddle now.  The big blog move is not all that has happened in my little world.

I got a job offer this week.  If you have followed my story at all, you know that I have been working at the same place for almost sixteen years now.  Our company has downsized and fallen on tough times lately.  I was once on salary but went back to an hourly wage a little over a year ago.  I needed to work 48 hours a week to make what my salary was.  For the most part, the hours were available.  About 3 months ago the overtime dried up and I have been bringing home more than $800 a month less than I had for the past five years.  As much as I would like to stay there, I can’t.  Like I said, I got an offer.  I’m going to turn in my resignation Monday.  I will bring in the $800 a month I am missing, plus about $300 additional.  I will be in the same field, tool and die, but I consider this a good move.  I am of course excited and nervous at the same time.  I hate being the new guy, losing 3 weeks vacation, and being in strange surroundings, but one of my biggest issues has been settling.  I am going to move forward and not settle this time.

I have also gotten some response on my computer repair venture.  I will be working for my first client this weekend.  Again unfamiliar situations some time scare me, but this is a good sign also.  This is a new beginning.  I’m going to make the most of it.

As so many others, I hate to be uncomfortable.  It is so much easier to maintain the status quo.  I know that the uneasy feelings that I have about these life changes will fade as I become comfortable in my new roles.  I know that things are going to start swinging in my direction and life will be better than ever.  I have claimed that I want to quit underachieving, time to put up or shut up.
