Thank the gods, I am not completely unemployed! 😀 We are still on the payroll an we will continue to be so as long as they can. So for the time being I don’t have to completely freak the hell out about money.
I’m still going to keep writing and posting as many stories as I can while I’m out and or course cleaning. I’ve already cleared away enough trash to make the garbage men give our house strange looks… XD But hey! Less clutter! 😀 And school is hoping to be open on Wednesday so things are getting back to a sort of normal here.
I’m sure you’ll all be sick of posts about Sandy but yes, since Lenni lives on the East Coast, I’m still cleaning up from the storm. We lost a bunch of food and were in the dark for a couple days but we are lucky to be back up and running right now. The worst that happened to me personally was a tree branch landed on the top of my car and dented it a little. I have pictures but…
I know not much went wrong by me but I’m still in a sate of shock. I have had very dear friends of mine lose EVERYTHING and the library where I work will be closed indefinitely. I don’t sleep too well and I’ve been tired and depressed. Every time I venture out for food, I see gas lines for miles, tress on people’s houses, and the persistent hum of those lucky enough to have a generator.
Without my job, I feel like I have no purpose. But I’m making the best use of my time by cleaning out clutter from the house and writing as much as I can. It’s not even about the short story experiment anymore or the blog project or anything like that. Aside for filing for unemployment, I need to have some other money coming in till I can get my job back.
It’ll be a long time before we can get back to normal but it’ll happen.
