Well hello Sisters,
Awhile back I mentioned about getting laid off from my day job…some friends here have asked how that’s workin for me so thought I’d post an update…
Hey it was kinda rough there for a few (thank ya, Mom). But then the UI checks started rolling in, about half what I was making per week. Just enough to scrape by on. The bills are paid and my home is full of food, rule #1 no one starves at my house. My old job said they’d call me back at some point, probably not til spring. Sometimes I look around a bit for something else…not much out there around here.
I thought I’d have just all kinds of free time, but what I didnt count on is that I now spend at least double the amount of time on everything I couldn’t do all day before. My house is cleaner than it’s been in months and stays that way. Get to cook three square a day for my son & I and hang out with him while he does his school work (he’s home all the time too).
Some days I dont bother changing out of my (appropriately mom style) nightgown, others I get done up proper & go do laundry or grocery shop. Or visit my little friend down the road a ways. She’s off work too & has been for longer than i. With the pandemic trying to roar back & weather turning cold there’s not much else to do outside of my home.
If there’s one thing I miss it’s going to the bar and hitting the dance floor. I dont really drink anymore but a few drinks & dancing sounds great right now. Someone, please come and dance with me.
This is fairly close to the sort of lifestyle I’ve always dreamed of. Lol I dunno how I can go back. It doesnt bother me to be broke. I’m happier than I’ve been in a long damn time, maybe ever, and grateful to be in a warm place with my child & cats (I’m turning into the cat lady). So that draws this long winded update to a close…if youre still with me here thanks for reading, Sister. Love ya 😊
