"Let it go. Let it go." ("Frozen" enthusiasts can sing along!)

July 24th, 2014 at 07:21 am

Well, decided that the little black cloud of my $1,400 blunder cast shadows for too many days, so I've stepped out from under it and am in the Sunshine. Not quite Pollyanna yet, but feeling like more like my evolved self. Smile

Job opportunity for DH has been extinguished. He was recommended through an agency that only does temp-to-perm and he was perm so there was a lot of drama about negotiating the agency's finder fee, and as much as he was liked it was easier to go with someone else.

Severance is taxed at 25%, and he can apply for unemployment right away. We're not really talking right now about what he'll do after that. The mental toll that this has taken on him is worrisome, from the weight gain to the heart palpitations from stress, etc.

My mother paid me for taking care of her plants/bringing in her mail/checking in on her dogs at the boarder. She paid me $28 the cash she had on hand, funny thing about it is I am cooking dinner tonight and brining it to our parish center for the team of college students that is running a summer program. My family + team + a few kids' friends for homemade sloppy joes and drinks $27 at Aldi's. I had a big bag of chips from Sam's and makings for a pasta salad on hand. I did have an odd randomly fleeting concern about how to fund this meal. Didn't need to worry after all.

As a visual reminder of the vacation and how wonderful it was, I will share another pic with you.

    Wow, lovely. I am glad you are feeling better. I pray your husband find a great job.

    I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. I sure hope your husband gets some stress relief soon, walks in the evening might help him.

    So glad the cloud has lifted a bit. I second the walking idea. When my husband was forced into early retirement, we wore out our sneakers, but it helped.

    Funny, that song is running through my head right now too, partly because I heard it at a festival last night, and partly because our realtor told us that we should start picturing ourselves in our new home and letting go of where we are. (She's kinda New Age-y.)

    Good on you to step into the Sunshine. Visualization of new lifestyle/schedule for the day is intriguing. Going for a walk each evening is wonderful. I take our dog out at dawn, around 5 AM to help me plan the day and work out problems. The unanticipated benefit has been a 10 lb weight loss and feeling so much better. DH takes dog out late evening and he believes it helps him sleep.
