I thought tomorrow was my last day, but we’re closing for a company going away party. Free beer, free food, and a paid day off. Not a bad way to go out.
Although the idea of not having to be at work is hard to wrap my head around. The last time I took a long time off, I wound up running a used bookstore for minimum wage.
As weird as it sounds to people like me who look forward, my problem is going to be too much free time. I don’t have any hobbies that will keep me occupied for more than a few hours a week. So I’ve been looking around the house to see what needs fixing and what I need to throw out. That last bit is going to be hard for a pack rat like me, but when I’m done the place may actually be livable.
I’m the exact opposite of my mother who always wanted a house that looked like the houses in Architectural Digest -not possible. My goal, on the other hand, is to be able to walk through the house at night without stubbing my toe.
This said I brought home the small refrigerator from my office. It’s currently sitting in my kitchen, which is kind of small, so tonight I have to relocate the little beast. I have no idea where but it’s already proving to be a hazard, so it’ll go…. someplace.
In the meantime, I have two other blogs that need attention, one on writing and one for recipes. Neither of these is for anything more than a place for personal stuff. Of course, that’s all this is for. I guess I keep them up because I own the domains and can’t bring myself to dump them…. at the moment.
Another problem is that I tend to eat when I get bored and I need to lose weight not pack it on.
Bottom line. I’m about to be unemployed and have no clue how to do it. –A few weeks fixing shit and then back to work… someplace.
