About a month ago, I was told, 'the company was going in a different different direction, and the 28th (of February) would be my last day.'
One would think there would be ample opportunity to write posts, wouldn't one?
One would be correct, and yet, what does one say about it and remain even-handed? It takes time. This is the second time I have been laid off...in February...at that place...by those people.
Today, I have bread baking, and cookies dough in the fridge...ready to eat. I will exercise later, keeping the phone close by. I had a couple of screening phone interviews last week, and thought I had a real chance for a call back from one. Today is probably the outside of the timeframe, so it behooves me to stay busy. Busy keeps the mind from dwelling.
In the past month, I have gotten through the unemployment maze, organized my kitchen cabinets, cleaned my own house, cleaned out my closet, and made a run to GoodWill as well as many more things off 'The List'. I have more things to do. There in the neighborhood garage sale in June, and the basement is calling. As is the home inventory.
I have tried to look at the opportunity in this. I am going to teach a class at an LYS in May, and have offered to knit some shop samples. I am also considering offering some of my award winning handspun skills for sale in the dormant Etsy shop, but haven't made that progress. I have been able to demo those spinning skills for the pre-school and kindergarten classes of the grandbebe girls, which I think was awesome to do. In addition, the Sheep To Shawl team I have been asked to participate with has ramped up their organizational duties.
I have made myself a DIY lightbox to play with my fancy camera, too. I would really be enjoying myself if this had happened on my terms, and the financial piece wasn't an uncertainty.
Going forward and onward and trying to see that it's all going to be just like it's suppose to be.
