I'm thankful that I was home when Jed came home for lunch.
I'm thankful that we don't have cable, or else I might just sit in front of the TV all day and not do anything productive.
I'm thankful that I had time during the day to clean the house.
I'm thankful that I was able to talk to my dad about everything today.
I'm thankful that I got to go to the gym during the day when there weren't very many people there.
I'm thankful that I worked out for 45 minutes.
I'm thankful that Mr. "Put-on-too-much-hair-product-before-going-to-the-gym" only stayed on the treadmill next to me for 20 minutes.
I'm thankful that I was able to go grocery shopping during the day.
I'm thankful that I got to stay in my gym clothes all day while I ran errands.
Are you seeing a pattern here??
I got laid off yesterday. However...
I'm thankful that I get four weeks of pay while I'm looking for another job.
I'm thankful that I have insurance for those four weeks - time to get the dentist visit in...
I'm thankful that I was given three leads on other jobs that they knew about.
Yesterday my internet at work randomly stopped working around noon. I rebooted my computer, hoping it might help somehow, and I was locked out of my computer. I should have read between the lines. They were going to do it the day before yesterday, but I left before they got the opportunity. :\
I got called in to a conference room yesterday, about 30 minutes before I was supposed to leave, and was laid off. I tried to email myself all of the files on my work computer and then I sent out one final goodbye email to my coworkers, gathered up all of my things, and left. I didn't call Jed right away - I didn't want to tell him over the phone. I walked in with my box and Jed thought we had gotten a package. And then I started sobbing. He held me for a long time, telling me it would be ok, and then he jumped on the computer and started looking for jobs for me. :) At least now I have some free time during the day to get things done. For now. I need to find another job. I hate job-hunting. :(
