I have been unemployed for three days.
I wasn't in any kind of a hurry to go job hunting. I am flat tired. You know what my crazy life is like. I'm dreaming of a few naps people. And since the mere thought of interviews made my stomach hurt I was content to take some time with my severance and not rush it. But, I did get my resume' cleaned up and started linking up on Linked In. That's just good sense.
If anything, I had big plans of doing nothing. For a while at least. Or, maybe I would decide to be unemployed forever. You know- stay home, clean out some closets, blog all day while the kids are at school, be home when they get out of school and greet them with warm chocolate chip cookies, volunteer as much as possible and maybe even learn to sew. I told my team I was going to take some time, and figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
Don't judge my dreams people; I've had these visions since I was eight I tell you.
Being home with my children for two weeks has worn me plum out. Granted, when you throw in a couple of really important holidays, a trip out of town, days of shopping and wrapping, several family get-together's, a few party's, baking and extra cooking it sure makes life a bit more chaotic.
I finally got my kitchen floor mopped today since the Walton weekend, and forget sewing, I think I'm a throw it away and start over kind of girl.
But I am so enjoying the nothingness of being home and wasn't in any hurry for it to end.
Which is why I am blown away to tell you that I was offered a new job today and the details are near perfect.
"It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer: and while they are still speaking, I will hear"
With so many people loosing their jobs and having to search for months even years to find another, I know that this is all God and He gets the praise and glory.
So, what do you do when you want to do nothing but a near perfect job comes just 3 days after being unemployed you ask?
You accept it.
And so I did.
I start January 21.
Happy Thursday y'all!
