Paradise lost

I knew I would miss my job when the layoff came, but I didn't realize how much I'd miss my office. Well, not exactly my office, the location of my office. One day last week I drove by the switching facility where I used to work around sunset. I had forgotten just how beautiful the view was from the top of the hill where I worked for five years. The serenity of the moment brought back many fond memories of those years.

I wonder if the ones fortunate enough to still have their job realize just how fortunate they are.

Your right you don`t update this blog very often.Was seeing if I could navigate around here again so I wanted to leave a note.
I worked @ my job for 5 years too when I lost it, was tired of the 12 hours on my feet but was lost without it. Starting to get the hang of this school thing but really different, wish that I had done it when I was younger.That phrase "cant teach an old dog new tricks" keeps popping into my head but i`m sure trying to learn them
