Do you know what you'll be doing on December 16th? I know what I'll be doing. I'll be sleeping in. For the first time in over 26 years I won't have a job to go to. I was officially notified yesterday that my last day will be December 15th. I had hoped, even half expected, that since I still have jobs assigned to me to run through the end of the month that I would still work until December 30th. Guess I was wrong.
Now I know I need to make some significant changes in my spending including turning in my leased Town & Country on November 1st and buying the best possible used car I can find for cash. I don't want a car payment and this option should reduce my car insurance too. I'm thinking about refinancing my mortgage (don't tell them I'm losing my job, OK?) and looking for other ways to come up with some instant cash. Reducing my yarn stash perhaps via Ravelry? Rug hooking patterns anyone?
After 26 years it's hard to believe they're cutting me loose. My manager did say not to spend my severance check in case I get called back for this new team that's developing
our their new system. A new chapter begins......
