it has been 2 1/2 years since I last posted here.  A lot has changed.  The biggest change is that I moved out of my parents’ place and into my own apartment in December 2012.  I enjoy being on my own.  The second change is that I adopted a cat named Jingles the same month.  Jingles was a stray.  He is now 3 years old.  I really enjoy his company.  I started a new blog on this site called jinglesmommy.

i got to the point where I was able to work again.  I did a stint of test scoring at Questar Assessment in spring 2013, followed by 6 weeks as a temp at the state of Minnesota.  On November 6, 2013, I started a permanent data entry job at the state.  The job has been very stressful to the point where i had a flare-up of a pre-existing condition and started a medical leave of absence 2 weeks ago.

I am now 47 years ago and going through a midlife journey, questioning a lot of values and previously held beliefs.  Currently I would describe myself as more spiritual than religious and eclectic.  I attend a Lutheran church and write for their blog, easterprays.org.  But I draw on other sources of spirituality as well.  I have been going on retreat at a Benedictine convent near here.

Where am I going from here?  I am scheduled to return to work soon and I plan to stay in the Twin Cities.  I would like to do more with my writing.
