Wow, Sorry...

While it's sort of rewarding to hear my friends asking me why I haven't been posting on my blog lately (meaning some of you are actually reading it!), I also appologize profusely!  Since getting laid off from my job 2 weeks ago I've been having trouble getting on a regular schedule and unfortunately Head in the Clouds has suffered as a result.  Here's a quick update of what I've been up to these last couple of weeks and I promise from here on out I'll try to start posting regularly again...
I've been spending some more time with friends who were already laid off from the shuttle program earlier in the month.  We've had a number of going away parties (sad), people actually moving away (sadder), and associated alcohol consumption (funny and sad simultaneously).  I've been trying to catch up on sleep, which I think I may have finally accomplished a few days ago.   I'm still applying to jobs, but since I want to remain in the space industry the going is slow and I haven't heard back from any yet.  It's weird that it's only been two weeks, because my over-active brain is already freaking out that I've been unemployed for "so long"...
I've also been doing some travelling now that I have "unlimited vacation time".  I went to my friend C's wedding in Kansas City over Labor Day weekend, which was wonderful.  We've been friends since 2nd grade and it was so wonderful to see her and her family.  While I was there I also explored the city a bit and found a fantastic farmer's market/flee market where I stocked up on fresh peaches, mini baguettes, and vintage brooches.  It was a fantastic weekend until I went a bit overboard on the whisky shots at the post-wedding bar trip and spent the rest of the weekend/week recovering from a very uncomfortable hangover.

Currently I'm up in Chi-town hanging out with my parents for a few days and visiting with a couple of friends.
