It’s Friday here around the homefront — well, it’s actually Friday in a lot of places!
This Friday is significant because it’s my last unemployed Friday for awhile – at least let’s hope so! I’ve been out of work since the end of last year when my contract wasn’t extended. Being unemployed came in handy during the big storm this winter since it took 3 days for the city to come plow the street – which I, of course, loved!
This was my second longer stint of unemployment and I swore that I would not repeat my last performance – sitting around watching tv and thinking of all the things I was going to do!! And, now at the end of 4 months…I did get *some* things done. And hey! I still have 3 days!!
I’ve been practicing waking up early. In normal circumstances I’m an early EARLY riser so I am just trying to get back to that point. And once I know what sort of hours I’ll be expected to have (can I flex my time or do I have to be there 9-5 every day?) I’ll be able to plan my day to fit in some running and some Bikram and the occasional workout DVD. And, the most important question – will I ever be able to work from home? Or from a home-away-from-home? Or a beach in the Caribbean!
I liked the people I met in the interview so hopefully more people are like them – we managed to laugh about a few things which was important (for me! I cannot work with humorless peoples!) I’m not looking forward to the drive, at least at first. This will be my first time working downtown and I am going to have to find parking. And PAY for parking!! What the What?! I can expense my parking though so…Phew!
And I do enjoy getting dressed up in the morning – I’m definitely a dress girl! So there’s a plus. It should help me keep on my ironing too, right?
So before too much time gets away from me today it’s time to do 4 months worth of stuff!
Have a fantastic Friday and hope your outside is as gorgeous as mine is today!!
