So, for those of you who don't know, I have been running a safety consulting business for the past few years, here in my beautiful hometown. I work mostly with construction companies, and some commercial clients. And they work mostly with the two big nickel (hee, a pun) companies here in town.

Well, those two nickel giants are well on their way to rolling up the sidewalks here. They've announced layoffs and shutdowns, and there is a possible strike or lock out coming at one of them. This has not boded well for my future (or current, for that matter) employment. So, I've been trying to get myself a permanent, steady job with someone else for a few months now.

I had resigned myself, and the children (sometimes known as Thing 1 and Thing 2), to having to leave town for work. In fact, we almost moved to Edmonton, but they found someone local for that job. So, there I was, not pleased and looking even farther afield, when Canada Post called me about a job as a Health and Safety Officer I had applied for months ago. Long story short ... I got the damned job!

Now, not only will we not have to move, I gonna be workin' for the gov'mint. And we all know you pretty much have to kill someone to lose a government job. Bwahahahahahah! I got it made, kids.

So, yeah, I'm a little relieved. Can you tell? Gonna reduce a lot of stress around here. Gonna go do some more happy dancing now.
