So today was the first day I woke up and didn’t have to go to work. Not because it was the weekend. Not because I was on vacation. But because I just didn’t have to go to work. I don’t have a job to go to anymore. (More on that here) And I would be lying if I said, it wasn’t GREAT!
I know this is only day one and there are many more jobless days (months) ahead of me, but I already have a list. A list of things I need to do and a list of things I want to do and I can’t wait! On the list today however, just a few things. Shower, wash my hair and have lunch with my friend Taylor. 🙂 Taylor works for a radio station (the world I just left) and we try to get together every few months to do life together. I enjoy her immensely. She came equipped with the essentials for a newly jobless friend…a sweet card in a sweet gift bag with a bottle of Prosecco and dessert. How do we women just know what other women just need? I don’t know but I am grateful we do. We spent houuuuuurs talking and laughing about life. I could feel my heart just filling up. I left our lunch with an extra skip in my step.
Later while in carpool, I caught up with friends on the phone and laughed some more. Now it’s back home now with toys everywhere from the little one and the other one upstairs doing her homework while my hubster works in his office. Back to the usual afternoon routine. The house is quiet for the moment. I am taking it in. I feel more aware. More at peace. If day one is any indication, I think I may really like this whole being jobless thing.
