I bet you wondered what the heck happened to me.
Well, my last day was May 18 and that morning I woke up with a really sore throat. The next morning I felt like a truck had hit me and that lasted for 2 and a half weeks. I joked that my body was purging itself of my job but I honestly think that's what happened.
All the stress and bullshit that I had been holding in for so long was finally being released. The first week I had planned to play Cleveland tourist and hit some of the museums but I could barely get out of bed. By the second week, I decided to go to the doctor and I was diagnosed with a sinus infection, bronchitis and fluid in my ear.
No wonder I felt so bad!
Believe it or not, it was hard to do nothing when I was used to doing so much all the time. The dogs and Vinny were completely confused the first few weeks but they've gotten used to me being around. I've fallen back into my natural body clock so I'm up until 1:00 or 1:30 and I get up at 9:00.
My initial plan was to get a part time job for about 20 hours a week. It was funny, because the Monday after I left, I got called for an interview.
NO!! I wasn't ready to work again yet.
I decided to go in and see what it was about but the 25 hour/week job turned into almost 30 with no benefits. Um. No.
Instead, I opened an eBay store again and I'm pursuing some writing opportunities. Some of it's freelance, some is my poor website that I've neglected and another is a partnership with a friend that I'm really excited about.
Do you know what I'm most excited about?
And stress free.
And I've missed you guys.
So, what's been happening since I've been gone? Tell! Tell!
