I have to admit, this last year has been hard with this economic down turn. It didn't help that Las Vegas had one of the highest unemployment rates in the U.S. After well over a year, I finally found a job. It's not in the location I would have expected, but nevertheless, it's in the Southwest. I will be in New Mexico for the year and transfer back to Vegas if all goes as planned. It's not going to be easy. But thanks to technology, I will be able to keep contact with my family and Dori. Like any move, I feel the strain of the umbilical cord as it pulls me from the womb. On the positive side, there will be an abundance of photo opps & Southwest Shards to share...and lets face it, having a job is better than not having one.
