Let Us Hope That Government Cheese Still Makes A Delicious Sandwich

Well, it appears that my lunch budget is no longer relevant. Due to company restructuring, I am on what I like to think of as a prolonged vacation.

I've seen it coming; I've got other opportunities in the works, and I have to admit that my job has not been the most pleasant place on earth the last couple of months. Whoodathunkit: a financial and homeownership education non-profit, not a great place to work during a mortgage lending and foreclosure-driven recession. I know, right?

Let me tell you how expected this was: when I called my husband and told him, the first thing he said was, "You're gonna blog about this, aren't you?"

I think he's hoping that we'll be the next Dooce family, and I'll be able to stay home and take pictures of the cat balancing things on her head. Let's hope she starts with the vacuum cleaner; I'm great at many things, but Suzy Homemaker I am not.

Oh, Molly, that SUCKS. At least it didn't catch you totally by surprise. Crossing my fingers that something bigger and brighter comes your way soon.

That does suck...but you know, you've been pretty unhappy there lately, and this gives you the perfect push and opportunity to find something that makes you a lot happier.

I'd ask them if the feng shui lady raised her rates or something.

And don't ask me how I know this, but government cheese makes an extra delicious sandwich. That stuff is awesome.

I'm not Suzy Homemaker either. My friends have all informed me that I'd be a raging alcoholic if I was a stay at home wife.

I'm sorry... Tough way to start the weekend. Something better is on the horizon.

Not that this helps your financial situation in any way, but I'm thinking playdate.

I'm also thinking that if you can teach your cat how to vacuum maybe it can come over here and teach my cats a thing or two about chores.
