I am 10 days away from my last day at work. I’ve been in the same profession with the same organization for 25 years. Now, in 10 days I will be ending that long chapter of my life. It reminds me of these lyrics I posted before Wherever you are, whatever you didIt’s a page … More A New Chapter Coming Soon
Regular readers of the blog know that I have been in an unhappy situation. I felt stuck. I was depressed. I knew I needed a change but I wasn’t sure if I was able to make a change. Today, I have news. I started talking to Mrs. Tater way back in June about the possibility … More Every End is a Beginning
All of these look more attractive every day. I’m still working on #6 being an option. I am contemplating my next step in life and exploring career options.

I wrote this one a year ago today. This is an ongoing issue. I’ve been looking at job openings again and I opt not to apply for a lot of them because I don’t feel qualified. I’ve also reached a point where I want less, not more when it comes to career. I want to … More Self Doubt

Just a quick note for those who have followed my posts about my needing a change. Today I moved from talking to action. I have submitted my first application for a new job. Same field, very different location. I will continue my search over my four day weekend. Now that I’ve decided to stop balking … More Tater Takes a Small Step.
I know that might sound weird, especially for those who don’t know I worked in a jail library for 19 years. Jail was not always an easy place to work. Many days could be very stressful. I spent a lot of time trying to get out and was relieved when I was finally transferred. There … More Sometimes I Miss Jail
