Fortune 500 Company

After a few months adrift I've got a contract position starting next week that has the potential to lead to bigger things.  It's with a Fortune 500 company that headquarters here in the frozen north and it's along the lines of my educational aspirations.  As of Monday I will be a Contract Accounts Payable peon for the next 9 months.  I'm not sure what to expect, but I certainly hope they have decent technology since it is such a huge company.  I refuse to weave my hopes and dreams around the possibility of a future with this conveniently located company that offers phenomenal benefits.  The future is now, and the only option it to keep moving forward.

I really needed some good new this week with Alberto's birthday coming up and Ashley's birthday following soon afterwards.  My love is going to be 28 this year, and our daughter will be 6 years old.  I have been feeling increasingly numb these past few weeks, which I have been attributing to the birthdays this month and the fact that our 7th wedding anniversary is in December.  I try to maintain my realistic, if not optimistic, outlook on life but it is becoming increasingly difficult as I get older.  I wonder when I will find my first gray hair.

I wish I didn't have to be medicated in order to function normally, but I remember all too well what happens whenever I've tried to stop taking my prescriptions.  The very least of the consequences take the form of horrible and irrational decisions, such as quitting an excellent job with unlimited growth opportunities to take a 'learning' position with an extremely small business.  It's taken me 6 years to get close to the same income bracket and I'm still not back to where I was before.  I have hopes that if I'm not able to earn enough to finally move out of my parent's house, that I will have enough money to be able to go back to school and earn a degree.  I feel like I would be a much more desirable employee if I had a degree to add onto my resume.
