Ah. Retail therapy.

I am sorry to be setting such a horrible example for telecommuters everywhere, but today during an annoying conference call I bought a bag on Etsy (read nothing into the fact that it's described as a diaper bag; I just liked it). That reminded me that I needed to get the next book club book. Which eventually led me to remember that I wanted some shoes.

(While on Zappos I noticed their list of most popular searches--right under the search box. The first item is "shoes." Srsly?)

I'm just sad that I'm being slowly, inexorably pushed out of a job I once really liked. And when the going gets sad, the sad go shopping, I guess.

That's a pretty efficient conference call!

Thanks for the Star Wars light saber keychain link, by the way. I'm ordering some for SwingDaddy.

I believe in multi-tasking. I also know just how it feels to get edged out of a job like that. Hang in there.

Sorry to hear that things aren't going so well at your job. There's nothing that makes getting up in the morning worse than dreading going to work.

I order shoes online too but i always end up ordering two sizes because I'm not sure which one, and then I have to return the others so it all becomes a little high maintenance.

Sorry about your job situation.

You're just proving your mad multi-tasking skills. That's good for a resume, right?

I'm sorry your job has taken such a downturn. I've been in a similar situation with my old telecommuting job from years ago. It sucked. Hope things get better soon, or that an even better job offer comes along.
