Yesterday was another tough day for me. The mortgage company I work for had yet another lay off. (Only 2 months after the last one). We all knew it was coming the night before, making Thursday a very rough, sleepless night. I worried not just about losing my own job, but also about the fate of my sister, and my very close friends, who work with me.
Friday morning came and my sister and I were spared, but unfortunately some of my very best friends were not. While I am of course relieved to still have a job, (I was demoted), it will not be the same without my friends there to make it the place it once was. This one was particularly tough on me because the friends I lost were the ones I actually went to work to see. They made work fun, they were my lunch buddies, and they were the friends that made the mundane job I have worth having.
I will miss seeing them everyday, I will miss the sarcastic jabs, and I will miss having them as a fixture in my everyday life. My life already does not feel the same without them.
I will miss you my friends! Please stay in touch.
For some reason, my brain only seems to remember to post inspiration photos every OTHER Friday. :) But hey, I’m trying! Today’s pictures are somewhat random…. I have no theme.
Most of these pictures come from the British Country Living magazine. January 2007 issue. I only have it because my friend Cathy sent it to me as a present since she knew I had never seen the British version and I just love Country Living and Country Home. This one is a keeper. Just look at all the lovely images it has inside! I hear it is available in book stores, I just haven’t made time to pick up another issue. I highly recommend it, if you love magazines as much as I do. :)
