What’s that? Unemployment! Yes, I, like millions of Americans, am now unemployed. I won’t lie, it sucks. But not totally. While I am anxious about not working (BILLS, CHRISTMAS, YARN, WINE!), it had been determined that the budget, while being stretched about as far as it’ll go, will survive this setback. And while I picked up lots of great memories, new skills and wonderful friends at my former place of employment, it’s not bad for me to be moving on (I think of this as the universe saying to me “Hey! You need a change, here it is.”)
I’m really looking forward to this time off because it not only allows me to take stock and look forward to what’s coming next, it also gives me a chance to do all of those things that I love to do but haven’t had as much time to spend on them as I’d like because of that whole having a job thing. Lucky for me, all of them can be done for free or on the cheap – knitting (that stash’ll come in handy now), reading (hello library), swimming, playing Wii (I’ll master that cheerleading game yet!), walking along the Boulevard in the morning (like the old folks do!), cooking, and (of course) taking pictures. I am also hoping to chronicle some of those things on this here blog – let’s call it Adventures of the Cash Poor and Time Rich.
