|I told you it was creepy!|

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program...
Well, as regular as things can be, I suppose. I am settling in to the reality of no longer having a permanent job. Although every morning I am awake the same time as I did when I had my job. Granted, it has only been a week. No sleeping until noon, yet! I peruse the job boards daily and have applied for a few online postings. We'll see how things shake out. I keep hoping for the epiphany that shows me what I am supposed to do with the rest of my life, haha.
The good news, I have purchased some very nice paper for my resume. While I am not keen on being unemployed, I have to admit this is my favorite part of the employment search. I love the feel and look of fine cotton resume paper. I am
a little majorly nerdy like that! I purchased 100% cotton, 32 lb, watermarked Ivory. It feels like new money (and I guess in some manner of speaking that is an accurate statement!)
I have been hard at work around my house, tackling all the projects I never seemed to have time to complete when I was working full-time. It has primarily been cleaning closets and de-cluttering. I cannot believe how much stuff we have! I already have a carload of donations to take to Goodwill. Now the trick will be to drop off the donations and NOT go in the store and buy things. Or stop at any of the other 10 local thrift stores. Um, yeah....
Speaking of de-cluttering, the last vestiges of Christmas were finally packed away in totes. The hubbs hauled everything down to the creepy
dungeon cellar for me. Someday when ALL the other projects are finished I will work some magic on this space.
I didn't have the heart to tell him he will need to bring everything back up in a few weeks. I plan or re-organizing and inventorying all of my Christmas stuff. I currently have 12 totes (in various sizes) of only Christmas related items. I plan on purging some things we don't use and cataloging the rest. All the containers will be assigned a number (recorded on a master list) and when I need something all I have to tell him is bring me container # whatever. No more digging through each tote to figure out what we are looking for. I love organization!
I must say my house feels a bit empty with all the Christmas decor gone. Albeit is good to have a slightly more spacious feel. Well- as spacious as 985 square feet can be, haha.
So what does the regular day entail for you now that the holidays are over?
