Goodbye, Cruel World.....

...of pharmaceuticals! Yes, that's right. I quit. Done. Finished. Over. Without giving any notice, I might add!

Let's try to make a long, painful story short, shall we? My boss was crazy. I know we like to use that term loosely a lot, don't we? No really. C-R-AAAA-Z-Y. In a nutshell: passive-aggressive, manipulative, undermining, sneaky, low self-esteem, weird power-trippy, could NOT be wrong...ever. That covers the highlights anyway.

Without going into excrutiating detail, I'll say that it was ALL MY FAULT, because I was honest with her about starting a business...because SHE has a business. BIG MISTAKE! She obviously had a personal problem with me (oh, wait! And all the OTHER women working under her too! Hmmmm, weird.) and spent an inordinate amount of time and effort 'checking up' on me to try to find me doing something wrong. Even when my nose WAS clean, she would try to make up accusations that were absurd. No matter how hard I tried to 'brush it off" and not take it personally, I found it virtually impossible. Maybe because it WAS personal. The stress started mounting and after we opened our new business, I just could not take the harassment anymore. The situation would NEVER get better and I had to bail.

It's a bit scary since I have worked full time for the last 20 years of my life, but it does feel pretty good so far & my wonderful husband has been reluctantly supportive. He's just freaked out with the whole 'one income' thing. This will give me a chance to devote much-needed time to my new business. I will be looking for something to supplement our income a couple days a week, and am thinking about substitute teaching. The rest of the time, I will throw myself into my business and prepare for our boss-free future! I doubt anyone reads this rag anymore since I never update, but I may be ending it until I figure out my new schedule and have a flow to my life that allows time for work and for fun. If I do have time to keep up, I will most certainly start a new blog.

In the meantime, I would LOVE to hear about some more easy suggestions to make money a couple days a week.

Wish me luck!
