For those who haven't read, yesterday I was asked to resign from my day job. Today is the first day being "job free", even if it wasn't exactly by choice.
I'm a lot happier than I thought I'd be. In fact, I've never felt so free. This could fade or get old, but right now, it's new and exciting. My wife is concerned that I'm not crying in the corner. I can't understand how crying in a corner would be a good thing. Fill in your own life and lemonade quote here.
My wife joked that I could be a stay at home dad. I reminded her that we don't have kids. She said we could adopt one. That doesn't strike me as the best reason to adopt, but it was a fun exchange nonetheless.
Our kitchen has never been so clean. My wife's coffee is already ready for tomorrow.
Tap water with ice is the new Diet Coke.
The 18 things that I wanted to do with Lazy Man and Money should be down to about 3 by the middle of the week.
Rather than fill the dishwasher up completely with a few big pots, I'll clean them with elbow grease. That seems like a money savings - even if it's just a couple of pennies.
If I wear these clothes for 3 days without washing them how much money do I save. I'm kidding...
We have VCR tapes in a bookcase in the living room. I haven't hooked up the VCR since we moved here a year ago. Maybe it's time to purge things a bit.
I deliberately have avoided Monster.com today. It's been calling me a bit, but I feel like I need one day to decompress and get other things in my life that have been piling up done.
I'm heading to Wal-Mart in a few minutes to stock up on quite a few things.
I'm excited that I paid off my HELOC a couple of days ago. That's interest that I don't have to pay back each month.
