Quick note: call it making lemonade or looking for the horse ... doesn't matter. Events from today had me searching for reasons. Then I decided to try and trust that the universe has a reason for turning my summer plans upside down.

The good news about having a three and a half week job canceled is that I will be here for the post race team party and will be available for another outing or two planned for July. The not so good news is that it is a financial blow -- I know, welcome to the economics of 2009. I am trusting that I will be able to recover some of the financial loss with freelance work; a month of non-scheduled work is a lot to make up for.

Still, I will trust there is something better coming my way.

And it's not easy. I was planning to use the free time of my structured schedule to train for the long distance relay and to work on editing my NaNoWriMo book. The training I will have to do, anyway, since we have a team -- the editing, well, we'll see. I may still need to take some time off to get a jump start on it.

Not really searching for an answer; but trusting there is a reason.
