For the first time in my life, I got fired.
I’m not reacting like I thought I would. Most of the evening I’ve been shivering like the after effects of an adrenaline rush. Every once in a while I have to shake off the shock, you know because it’s awkward sitting there and letting the situation of we’ve decided to let you go play out. I came home to a caring husband; I had a couple of beers with some girlfriends, and I had some laughs with my sisters over a group video chat. I’m short on sleep, but it is more about excitement rather than anxiety.
I should be upset that someone didn’t want to keep me around. That they didn’t care about my livelyhood enough to keep feeding me a paycheck. There was nothing really wrong, but there was nothing really right either. It wasn’t a good fit and for that I got fired. Wow! I got fired! Are you kidding me? I don’t get fired.
Yet, I’m not too broken up. I’m not bawling over it. Actually, I’m really curious about what is next. So, I figure I’ve got about three to four weeks before I really start freaking out about money. Starting tomorrow (Sunday) I’m going to make the most of it.
It is supposed to get up to 70 degrees so I am going to walk a marathon. I’ve biked the loop around the city several times, and I’ve wanted to walk/run it. So I will do it tomorrow. I’m sure it will take me all day. I’ve been running on the treadmill the last two months so I will just be going overboard and not extremely overboard from a sedate winter. Hopefully that will wring bad energy out of every cell in my body.
Starting Monday, I’m going to write and turn the next section of my proposal in to my writers group. Maybe by the beginning of next week I will shoot off another round of query letters to agents.
I had hit a little bump in the road with the Geographical Oddity quest. I was going to write about that instead of this post, so now I will have time. I’m going to continue my efforts on my diet an my work for getting 100 people in a room.
My husband and I also started tearing out the bathroom so we will be finishing that and maybe I will do the sewing project that has been lying around.
On top of all that I will turn in a couple of applications per day and spend some time with friends and family.
All is good until I have to make a car payment. Until then I’m curious as to what God has in store for me.
