My old blog, Veering Off Course, was what I thought would chronicle the huge changes my life was going to take by leaving my job in Corporate America and starting a small business with my husband in 2005.
My last blog update on V.O.C. was on December 10, 2010.
I had no idea that my life was truly going to veer off course several years after that point.
My current life is nothing like I had imagined it would be at that point in time.
“About Me” section back then vs. now:
I had 5 cats : That have all now passed away and sit on the fireplace mantel in boxes. I have 3 different cats* now.
I had a young, crazy dog : He’s now an old, crazy dog. Sadly, I don’t imagine he’ll be here too much longer though.
I had a hot husband : I still do.
*I now have a cat whose butt I have to clean every single day because she’s too overweight to clean it herself. She’s sitting next to me right now giving me the “Clean my butt NOW!” indicator (leg up above her head / intently staring at me without blinking).
This cat situation is just one of the many pieces of the puzzle that I did not foresee back when I had my old blog.
The purpose of this new blog will be to chronicle how I’m putting together my puzzle (of life), especially now that there are missing pieces. I’m referring to pieces of my life that I didn’t necessarily blog about (very close loved ones).
Due to the missing pieces, I’m going to write in part about my dealings with the grieving process. It’s a large section of my puzzle, but with some rearranging of the pieces (thanks to the passing of time and a sense of humor), I think the course that I’ve veered off on to, will be an ok one too. I feel like I’m making my own journey instead of letting life altering changes and grief dictate my course.
Welcome to my journey ~ past, present, and future.
Welcome to the Pieces Of My Puzzle.
