I honestly thought being unemployed would be more relaxing.
I mean, I knew as a crazy list maker that I’d find things to do each day. However, I really thought that I’d have time to sit around and watch daytime TV or read a book. I imagined myself taking long walks around Lake Elkhorn and making lots of lunch plans with my friends. I have a few prenatal yoga DVDs that I thought I’d be bored of by now, but I haven’t even opened them yet.
I’ve only been out of work for 2 ½ weeks, but I swear I’ve been busier than I was when I was working!
Between putting the house together after our big move, working on some freelance projects, random errands, a quick trip to NYC with my family, working with BVU on their huge holiday party/fundraising event and applying & interviewing for jobs, I’ve been running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.
Next week, my husband and I will be going away for a super awesome 7 day cruise to the Caribbean, so I’m looking at that as enforced relaxation time. Of course, leading up until then I still have to deal with two Thanksgivings (one at my house, one at my MIL’s house), pack for the trip, run even more errands and finish some freelance postcard designs.
I should have some big news to share soon (as if selling our house, getting pregnant and losing a job wasn’t enough for this fall), perhaps as early as this afternoon. Let’s just say that I might not have much more time to sit around my house and “do nothing”…
