so this is unemployment

I’ve had a very busy day today and it’s still early afternoon.  I wasn’t sure if I would be productive now that I’m back from the beach, but that is not an issue at all.

I’ve been busy with housework and more decluttering of my office.  Listed a few things on FreeCycle.  Got the bills paid.  Doing a lot of research on jobs, resumes, cover letters, interviews.  It feels like I have more to fill my day than I have time for!

That seems a bit strange to me.  All these things needed doing while I was working, except for the job search, but I didn’t feel that busy.  It could be that many times I would get home from the office to tired or unmotivated to do anything at all.

Now, I am happy I have things to fill my days.  Searching for a job is not going to take 8 or 9 hours a day.  I will be able to get projects finished that I’ve put off for a while.

Problem is, I’m afraid I’ll start to like this!

    I had to leave my job a few years ago because of health problems. It was really retirement back to being a stay at home mom but it was still a major adjustment. I often felt guilty for not working outside the home and would constantly find things for myself to do around the house. I had to ditch the guilt, learn to make daily to do lists, and also schedule time for me. Good luck with both the adjustment and your job search!

      Thanks Theresa. I have so much I want to do as far as house projects that I wish I could ditch the job search! Unfortunately, we have mortgages and bills to pay 😦

    I wondered what I was going to do all day when I decided to retire early and “live” life. Poor but happy. It’s amazing I now never have enough hours in day now…and I thought I was going to be bored.

    Good luck with your job search so you can get back on track and fulfil your dreams.

      I thought I would get bored too! Early retirement would be nice if we could sell the house in Richmond! Unfortunately, the housing market here in the State is really bad.
