Going back to work... one day only

My friend and ex co-worker called me today. Her niece passed away earlier this week(cause is unknown at this time) and she wanted to know if I could fill in for tomorrow. Of course I said yes and I will do it but I really am hesitant. I feel weird about it. No, I am not upset about them laying me off. It's just feels awkward. I can't really put it into words. I have a feeling that they may want to utilize me for fill ins. I don't want to have to do that.

Anyway... it will be nice to see everyone again.

New Year.... New Me

I have been taking it easy being home for the last two weeks. I have gotten some things done around the house. Had dinner all ready to go once the man of the house came home. I have spent countless daytime hours with school and of course playing my Sims game:)

Financially we are a little strapped and I have been trying to think of ways to bring in a little extra income. I have decided to redo the Regalo Boutique site. I have time now so... I think that will be a priority and I have thought about seriously looking for work to do from home. Legit work though not scams. I hate scams. So if any of you have ideas, please shoot them my way. Oh... and pledge to post at least once a day. Scouts Honor:)

Can you spell RECESSION??!!

I have known for quite some time that my family could possibly be affected by what many "officials" dare not to speak of.... I am talking about recession here... As of March 11, 2008 I am no longer employed.

I got the news two minutes before my work day was through... I know he had a very difficult decision to make and I know he did not want to do this but when the company wasn't bringing in nearly enough money, I knew it was just a matter of time. What sucks is that I had absolutely no time to search for anything else... not that there is anything out there to begin with. I was the one to comfort my boss because of how chocked up he was and because he is a man with a huge heart it hurt me to see him so upset. I have been with this company for almost four years and I have thought of each and everyone of my co workers as family.. yes we would sometimes get on each others nerves and yes we have had our moments but so do we with our own families. What I did not know until I went in to the office the next day to collect my things and to help the office manager out with a few details was that my boss was cutting into his own paycheck for several weeks trying to keep me on. Who does that? He does.

So.. I am taking it easy and trying to devote more of my time to keeping the house clean (whew) and my school work. I will be getting a severance package that will last a few weeks and then If I haven't found anything, I will be filing for unemployment. I have some leads in the works so we shall see..

At least I will have some time to post more:)

I just wanted to let y'all know that I am still breathing (barely) and that I will be posting before the week is through. I have to projects due and one needs to be finely tuned and then I can take a breather for a few days.
