Good Morning!

I keep thinking today about your invitation to go to the Christmas Parade with the kids and I'm all happified.

Just thought I'd let you know...

Happified? Is that a good thing?

I'm really, really glad you're down with it. I think it'll be fun.

You know, I thanked you for lunch on Monday, but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated it. I'm not sure "appreciate" is the right word. But it was a really nice gesture.

I love you. Like, a whole bunch.

It's a good thing.

Re lunch on Monday: Hey, it seemed like a good opportunity to meet up with you, in fact, since you're free most of the day, anytime you feel like coming around this part of town around lunchtime, I'll gladly meet with you. I know I'd be freaking out if I got laid off. I'm impressed at how much of a cushion you had made for yourself by having a second job.

I love you.

Don't give me too much credit. Most of that cushion is because of the severance package. The part-time job just ensures my rent gets paid next month.

I'm not really freaking out. But I do have quite a few moments of "what happens if I don't find anything before the money runs out?" each day. I have to remind myself that if need be, I can always find a job...it just might not be making as much money as at Opus. God forbid I reduce my visits to Starbucks.

I think I need to set a plan, like if I don't get myself a job by...oh, December 5th, it'll be time to look into a part-time job for the interim. Or maybe that's when I just take anything I can find? I don't know. Last time I was laid off, I was only unemployed for two weeks before finding Opus. I sent out my resume to about 20 jobs yesterday, a couple of which I would be pretty excited about.

Anyhow...if you want to have lunch anytime, just let me know.
