The day began in the usual fashion. That's getting old isn't it? Ha!
Well, here I am. Unemployed. I'm singing 'F I R E D' to the tune of Tammy Wynette's D I V O R C E....it's quite catchy.
After today's post, we shan't be talking about me being fired or unemployed any longer. It's getting to be old news, and I am employed!
I went to Garage Sales today. Nothing newsworthy. A few little treasures, a little bird feeder, etc. Found an awesome vintage tablecloth on top of a pile of clothes. Oh my, as I was standing in line to pay for it, I imagined I'd bring it home and soak it in OxyClean. What a wonderful prop it would be for some fun blog photos. As I handed it to the lady to pay for it, she looked mortified and exclaimed 'That's not for sale! That was my grammie's!"
Two things I've realized today. First thing I realized is that I don't have 'the knot' anymore. 'The knot' that I had right below my breasts, smack dab in the middle of my chest. It's gone. I didn't even realize I had it til it left. I was that used to it! That used to 'what time is it?' 'Aaron, this is what you have to do while I'm gone'. All the pressure that I carried around daily as I rushed so to get everything done.
The second thing I realized is that I'm exhausted. I mean dog dead tired. I feel like I could sleep for a week. Wonder why?
What's funny is that I'm half killing myself for the last couple of days. Working like a maniac! I think in my mind I feel like I'm just off for a few days, and I'd better take advantage of it. I was making my bed at 4:30 this morning, and pulled out the vacuum at 5. Is this really necessary anymore?
I'm still weird about being fired. I don't like it. There is such a negative connotation about it all. Yep, I screwed up. Yep, I knew the policies. Couldn't I have just gotten a good spanking?
And that my dear blog friends will be the last you hear me speak of policies, and firing, and my mixed emotions about it. I've started writing little notes to all my former co-workers and managers. I want to write to each of them what I treasured about them. I'm planning on bringing in a nice tray of cupcakes. I just got the best recipe for frosting! It's full of Ex Lax. *evil grin*
There are so many other fun things to talk about. Vintage treasures, recipes, gardening, decorating and chickens.
And with that...I wish you all a good night. Try to breathe. Let's all make a conscious effort to slow down.
