I brilliantly left my power cord for my laptop sitting on the floor of the hotel room in Palm Spring...thus my lack of posting. I have 44 precious minutes left of battery still waiting for the Fed Ex package to arrive from Rosa - a lovely housekeeping manager. I doubt she knows how much I love her for finding and saving my cord.
The last two days have been a roller coaster. I have never felt so much anxiety in my life. I still don't know why I was "non-renewed", but have learned that I am well liked and respected by others on my faculty. They are rallying around me like and I have to admit it feels nice. It doesn't take away the nauseousness, shakes or grapefruit-sized knot in my stomach, but it does help.
I am definitely in the angry mode. I think that's better than the "woe-is-me" mode. One thing I do know - being back is HARD. Rum and cokes with Heather daily was much more fun.
I have plans in my arsenal thanks to an incredibly supportive husband and group of supportive friends. I'm really not sure why this happened yet - and may never know - but I'm not ready to embrace it. It totally sucks, but on the bright side - it's a great weight-loss plan!!!
