Five months

Nov. 1, 2012 was the day we arrived here. Five months ago today.

Probably the worst time to move here, timing-wise. Foliage season was all but over. The trees were about stripped, winter was knocking on the door, the time change (Nov. 4) means darkness is plentiful, etc etc. Not to mention: moving.

Fortunately, now that that's over, it seems like encouraging signs are out there. The days are getting longer, and warmer. I need this.

Looking for a job sucks. Well, check that: looking doesn't suck as much as not having. Sometimes it's hard to stay positive. Hindrances and negativity that you used to shrug off now seem a little heavier and pervasive.

I'm a little down.

But I also remain aware that there's no value in succumbing to discouragement. Because in this life... you're going to have discouragement.

So. Wipe those tears, and get back on that horse.
