Wow! Two posts in one day. I don’t think that has ever happened before. It may happen more often, at least for awhile.
I was supposed to be working tonight. Working a job I enjoyed, helping people in an area where people need it the most. Instead, I’m home. Writing. Not that I’m complaining about that. I haven’t had the chance to really write in a long time. But I’m home because today, I lost my job.
Today, everything changed. Earlier I was posting about the problems we had been dealing with for the last four months. Now, I’m more concerned about whether or not we will have a place to live in four months.
Please bear with me tonight. I’m still in shock, and reacting. I’ve already started to put feelers out for other jobs, but it’s hard to get much when it’s a Friday afternoon and you’re trying to connect with government offices that are already closed for the weekend.
My husband has been amazing. Yes, we were kind of expecting something like this to happen, the manager I didn’t get along with has a reputation. But I don’t think we were expecting it quite so fast. Astoundingly enough, we are little more prepared than we normally might have been. Over the last few months, we’ve been stocking up in case of an emergency. We were thinking something a little bigger (apocalypse or something like it), but loss of job does still apply, so I won’t need to spend much money on food for the next few months.
Plus, we are already looking at the added benefits. With me home, that will give me more time to work on the house, and I’ll be able to get back to work on the projects (ie, cleaning the office again!!), but it also gives me more time to write and work on the website. It will also allow us more time to work on music here at home, which will hopefully lead to some of the other projects that I’ve been wanting to work on getting done. In other words, we’re focusing on the positives about the situation. Yes, I will be looking for other means of employment, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t focus more on my own projects in the meantime.
So, for tonight, I am going to rest and recuperate. Tomorrow we deal with everything else, and no matter what, the future will be brighter than it is right now.
