On Thursday I told my mom that I lost my job - she was really great about it; she told me that she loved and supported me, and that I was one of the strongest people that she knew. When I told her about the environment with my prior boss and some of the other stuff (head-up-their-ass strictness on the continuing education classes ... long, boring story there), she told me that I was probably better off somewhere else.

We talked about some other stuff, including SEGA's Sonic balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Kellie works at SEGA, and was one of the balloon handlers). She told all of her co-workers that Kellie would be in the parade(!), which I thought was really cute - that my mom would do that, telling people that her daughter-in-law would be in the parade. But what really touched me was the fact that she told people, period -- that people know that her older daughter is married. To another woman. And no one probably gives a damn.

And... My mom is also awesome because today (Friday), she called me this afternoon just to check in with me and see how I'm doing.

Yesterday I filed for unemployment, and looked at different websites to see what is available - even though there really isn't any hiring in December.

I'm still doing what I can to keep "some semblance of normalcy" - continue to look at the websites, start working on a resume, reaching out to my company contacts, everything else.

On the home front, I'm running the needed errands and trying to get the place cleaned up. Just little things, you know?

In the meantime, tonight was a pretty decent night.... Chinese takeout and early '90s TV ("Parker Lewis"), then "Top Chef" and "Beavis and Butt-Head" with Kellie.
