Ten things - umemployment edition
I'm adapting to the life of unemployment far better than I thought. Though I'm not sure 2 days is a good base to gauge it on.

Here's 10 things I have done since my last day.

1. Vacuumed every day, sometimes twice.

2. Pinched my hand in the bi-fold closet door and have a beautiful, 2 inch blood blister.

3. Rearranged Booger's bedroom in anticipation of buying her a new bed.

4. Wondered why my work cell phone wasn't ringing so much, then remembered I don't have it!

5. Dropped a TV tray on my shin, causing a raging bruise.

6. Purchased Shakespeare In Love on DVD (I previously owned it on VHS)...watched it for the eleven hundredth time and still cried at the end.

7. Grabbed a few bargain books at Borders and have a stack of "to be read" books I can't wait to delve into.

8. Took a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day yesterday.

9. Cleaned, dusted, mopped the entire downstairs. Most of the upstairs is done, too.

10. Oh, yeah....dyed my hair. PINK!!! It's only temporary color, so I've no idea how long it will last. But it sure is fun.

Wowie! Pink, huh? Well, I suppose it's something to do with all that time you have on your hands!

Congratulations, Snob. Enjoy yourself. What do you think you'll do next?

The pink is just a temporary wash....and I suppose it's my little way of "sticking it to the man." It's already fading, sadly.

No idea what I'll do, Chili. I'm thinking of maybe even going back to school.

Going back to school in what?? As someone who returned to school just as soon as my youngest was in school (kindergarten) at 35, I have to say it's one of the best things I ever did. How can I help?

Shakespeare in Love - I CAN'T watch that without crying and being euphorically happy at the same time. Great souls emote alike, eh?

Enjoy your time!
