A Good Day to be Unemployed!
I've been waiting for this day...a day when everything I did I'd honestly be able to say I was truly "in the moment" and appreciating the joys of being unemployed. It's been a pretty rough couple of weeks of emotions, so this was very much needed!
I started off the morning in Wheaton and paid bills while catching up on some emails. Then I had to pack, shower and drive to the city. After sitting in ridiculous traffic for the noon hour I met VA for lunch at Pompei. We had a nice lunch chatting and catching up and it was absolutely gorgeous weather (finally!) so we were able to sit outside. Then we walked so I could see her new apartment which is adorable!! After that I went for a run along the lake and did a pilates workout from "on-demand." I ate a quick dinner and rode my bike to small group. I arrived to the park early, so I talked to Jason while in some gorgeous park along-side of Ohio Street Beach (he's traveling this week.) .The new group I am in switches every other week from doing a study to something "social." Tonight's social was a picnic in the park...complete with tossing around a football. (though I didn't participate...I didn't want my body to go into shock from all the physical activity I had already partaken in.) The pictures are of the view from where we were sitting. Today felt like it was a "day-off," rather than just another day of unemployment. If I am not going to get a job anytime soon, I hope that I can have more of these kind of days!
