Hey, so, I got laid off from my [terrible] job last week. Which is kind of bad news, but also a crisitunity, because holy shit, you guys, do you know what I found??
WEATHER WHISKERS. An app for your phone where CATS IN OUTFITS TELL YOU THE WEATHER. WITH SNARKY COMMENTARY.
I am in love with the world. Seriously. In love.
The husband's reaction when I shared this life changing event? "Can you find a job, please?"
This may also be because the first day after I was laid off [which would be last Thursday - see? I still can remember the days!], I called or texted him about 875353 times. Conservatively.
Me: Hey, I'm going to go put gas in my car. Do you need anything from Costco?
Me: Hey, I'm going to the library. Do you need anything?
Me: Hey, I'm at Costco and they have this carry-on suitcase thing that we maybe should get for the girl and it's $40. What do you think?
Me: Hey, are you coming home for dinner?
Me: Hey, did you see that Nelson Mandela died?
Me: Hey, what time will you be home for dinner?
So I'm rechanneling my energies. I'm finishing a novel. I'm working on my memoir proposal. I'm cleaning my goddamn house. I'm just realizing that we're hosting Christmas in 18 days and I don't know where our tree is. It's trapped in the cedar closet, which is now moving up on my list of Things To Do And/Or Clean While Unemployed.
This is going to be an adventure!
