Am I Bored or What?

 You would have thought I’d welcome being laid off from a job I both loved and hated. I just knew it would be great to stay home and do all those things I didn’t have time for when I worked. I told everyone I have so many hobbies, and things I wanted to try, I wouldn’t ever be bored. It has been seven months now and absolutely nothing has been accomplished. The house was cleaner when I worked. I don’t even remember what hobbies I thought I had.  Am I bored or what?  

It’s not that I haven’t tried to get my sizable rear off the couch. It was only yesterday when I decide to clean the basement and set up an area for scrapbooking. Now I remember that was one of those hobbies I had before I lost my job. I moved a few things around, and decide to do it another day.

Then I went into my bedroom and took all the clothes out of my dresser drawers. I was going to throw out all the underwear  that was too large, or more likely too small, part with a few pair of P.J.’s that Garry said had seen their better days, and all those mismatched socks. This job proved to be too taxing. I couldn’t part with any of the undies, big, small, or holey, the old P.J.’s have many more comfy nights left in them, and the socks, I might just find the mate someday.  I found a laundry basket and piled all the clothes in it until I could deal with them later.

I miss having a reason to get up shower, fix my hair, put on makeup. I miss talking to different people, other than Garry and the puppy boys’. I miss getting a paycheck. I miss good insurance coverage. Let’s face it I miss my job.

I think I better send out a few more job applications. Oh no, it three o’clock and Ellen is on. The job search can wait another day. I can’t miss Ellen, now can I?

    Hey Chica. I understand what you’re talking about, I surely do! I’ve had a long time to try and figure out what to do with myself. Some days were very hard. When I went back to work for the the first time in 21 months today, I did realize that a whole lot of that personal time I had is gone now. So if you can, try to make the most of your time until you’re working again. Write and sketch….fill the time with happy things.
    Love you lots!
