The last few days, I was out sick with a flu-like issue. So while I was on the couch drinking plenty of fluids yesterday, I got a phone call from my contact at the temp agency I'm working through. The company I was working at had decided that they no longer needed any of the temps - effective immediately. Yes, there is a chance that some of us may be hired on permanently in February, but that's a very slim chance. I'm hoping to pick up more hours at the restaurant I've been working at off and on, but it's not going to come close to making up for the paycheck I'm losing. I'm eligible for unemployment apparently, but that just makes it seem so real, so I'm going to hold off on filing until I know how things are going to go with the job I've been interviewing for. If it doesn't work out, I'll file and then go crazy applying for just about any job I can find.
I've decided that at least for now, while I'm in job limbo, I'm going to try to use my time productively. Today was a lot like a Saturday for me. I ran errands, cleaned the kitchen, and took care of a few other things. I also got back onto the exercise horse by walking 1.64 miles around my neighborhood. I'm rounding out the night with a great cathartic release provided by the magic of television: Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice. I'm trying to just maintain balance between taking care of myself, moving on, and dealing with everything that's happened. I guess at the very least, I have more time for the gym. :-)
