Dusting off the cobwebs

Oh hey there, it’s me. Dropping in for a chat. I see…some cobwebs around here, let me just get those out of the way.

That’s better.

So how are you doing? Everything going ok? Family doing well? Good, I’m so glad to hear it!

Me? Oh well, I was laid off last week, so that’s a thing that happened.

Nah, I’m shockingly ok with it. This is the second round of layoffs at the company in the past 6 months, I wasn’t truly surprised by it, and I’ve been so horrifically stressed that it’s a bit of a blessing in disguise. I’ll tell you all about it over cocktails sometime, but I’m…doing good.

What? Oh, I mean, I don’t LIKE being unemployed, but it IS summer & the kid & I have a bunch of plans & N.C.’s business has been going pretty swimmingly lately, so we’re not in dire straights or anything. I’m confident I’m going to find something new soon, something that’s a better fit. I’m actually kind of optimistic about things right now!

Some of my plans are “keeping the kid active & not bored during the summer” related (beach, pool, bowling, library, etc). Some are me related (job hunt, network, find consulting clients, read, write here more [no really, I need to keep my writing skills sharp, this weird blog post aside], hit up the movies, etc.)–I’m going to try and enjoy my “time off” and recover some of what’s been lost the past few months to stress. Clear out the mental cobwebs, as it were.

Anyway, I’ve got to run some errands (one of the perks of being unemployed is grocery shopping in the middle of the day on Wednesday instead of the weekend!), but it’s been good to catch up! Let’s do this more often, yeah?
