This morning I didn't have to get out of bed. Every morning will be like this for a while - I've joined the ranks of the unemployed.
At 9 months pregnant, this is not exactly traumatic for me. A little nerve-wracking, as I've basically been employed since I was 15, and the economy is in tough condition, but otherwise, it's good. I have a few weeks of time to get ready for the baby. I no longer have to fight the weekend crowds at the grocery store. I can cook to fill our freezer with meals to eat post-baby, spend time with family and friends, and have dinner on the table at night when my husband comes home. In short, it's a really good time for me.
I never imagined I'd be happy to be out of work. And yet I am....as long as I go back when my maternity leave is over. That's the goal and the plan.
I'll be updating over the next few weeks on how it's going.
