Laid off! A New Chapter!
Saturday, September 27, 2008
I got laid off yesterday at my job. The company has been in financial trouble for years; had a massive lay-off in 2003. I've been waiting for my turn since then; when it finally came it was bittersweet. I am always so pressed for time, it'll be good to have some time off to take care of some things around here. We moved in here three years ago and I still don't feel settled. I'd like to take a few months off on unemployment and get caught up, but with the economy the way it is I can't pass up any opportunity that comes along!
My head is buzzing with "how do I handle this" and "what do I do about that". I don't know what my life looks like now and that's weird to me.
I have decided though that I'm going to continue going to the classes at the Rec in the morning. I can really feel the difference it has made in my body and I want to continue that; at least for the next quarter. I may have to be careful about what groceries I buy but I won't eat foods that are higher in fat just because they're cheaper!
I will continue with my goals! I will succeed!
