Unemployed since Thursday

December 4th, 2006 at 06:27 pm

Itís official. After waiting for almost a year I am finally unemployed. On Friday I had to get up early and take DH to the hospital for an appointment. On Saturday, I proctored an exam in the morning and early afternoon. It was great to sleep in this morning on a Monday.

It was sad to leave work. There are a few people there that donít have email either at work or at home so it is unlikely that Iíll be able to talk to them again. I am happy to be out of there though. It is time for something new.

I have to get my paperwork started at the unemployment office and also have to get things rolling with the severance package. Iíll fill out the paperwork tomorrow.

On Saturday we are heading to Europe for three weeks. It will be a nice distraction and hopefully Iíll forget all about ever having had a job! I have no idea how long it is going to take me to find something new. I have a decent severance package so I can last for quite a while before I have to dip into my savings. Even though Iím pretty relaxed about it now, I wonder if Iíll start to worry in January and February. Iíve got an emergency fund which is about a yearís worth of net pay. I like having that cushion and donít want to have to dig into it.

Stay tunedÖ more to come on my job search.
