|The old work station
Specifically, I have a new job! I'm back downtown which means no driving to Oak Brook and my kids are back in daycare which means they have at last have a chance of being civilized human beings instead of the ferral little creatures they've become since we had to take them out of Daycare.
And of course there is the reason why I have a new job. My old one went away. My company TopFive has discovered that it is an accounting firm, not an IT firm and as such, decided to move to a Managed Services model (read: outsourcing) and my went to India.
While I wasn't thrilled about losing my source of income I was unsurprisingly relieved that it would soon be over. For as long as I can remember my capacity and my demand were not appropriately matched. It was killing me to drive out to Oak Brook (and subsequently home in rush hour traffic) for the little amount of work I had.
I wrote some rough drafts of events as they were happening but didn't publish them because it wouldn't have been prudent to do so. Now that it's over, I will try to compose them but in all likelihood they will end up as posts in a serial on ChicagoNow and not here.
