I woke up around 8 this morning and refused to get out of bed. I decided now was a good time to catch up on my Tivo recordings of “Secret Life of an American Teenager“! Yes…I’m a grown ass woman and I watch this show. What of it?
Oh…by the way…I’ve entered the “anger” stage of unemployment. I don’t think I’ve dropped so many F bombs in my life than I did today. It might be a new world record! I also used a lot of other choice 4 letter words. It was awesome!!!!
So you know how I said the worst part of being laid off is that I would miss so many of my wonderful co-workers. Yeah..so 2 of those wonderful co-workers contacted me today and said my belongings were packed and they’d like to deliver them. That was awesome because then it meant that some of my stuff wouldn’t get broken in “shipping”! So D and I met them for lunch at On the Border.
I ordered a salad and mushroom & spinach enchilada. The enchilada was nothing to
write home blog about but at least there are pictures!
I’ve talked about one of my old co-workers here before but I’ve never named her. She’s officially being named now because 1) she’s awesome and 2) we’ll be doing some races together in the future. So A and my other co-worker and I had a nice lunch catching up. It was hard to look them in the eyes and see that they were really feeling for me.
This leads me to my next rant…you know who your true friends are by the actions they take! I learned a very long time ago that words are “words” – they mean nothing. It’s the actions that people take that reveal their true character!
Yes, I had a lot of stuff. I worked there for 9.6 years! My cube was very decorated and full – it was my home away from home. And here it all sat, in 2 large boxes!
I decided that being laid off is not like a death in the family – it’s like a divorce!
This afternoon I ran 1.08 miles and ran as fast and as hard as my legs could take me. I was feeling so very angry and it felt good to take that frustration out on the pavement.
So for some good news…this morning I weighed myself and to my surprise, the scale said 175.0! Wow!! I’ve officially lost 20 pounds since December 8, 2011. Here’s the breakdown since I started posting my weight on this blog:
- 6-21-12 = 178.2
- 6-28-12 = 178.6
- 7-12-12 = 179.8
- 7-19-12 = 175
I’ve lost 3.2 pounds in the past month. I’ll take it.
Do you watch Secret Life of an American Teenager?
Do you run while angry?
