It’s a weird feeling to be unemployed. With the exception of about 3 months right around the time Josh and I were married, I’ve always worked. So it’s very strange feeling of not working – even if it’s only temporary. Of course, I haven’t actually started not working yet, though that sounds strange.
And that’s because while March 1st was the day that I officially handed over my company, I was still notifying clients and vendors with all of the changes amongst lots of other administrative work. It’s not all done, but it’s close. This week I notified the last client and this morning, the last vendor. I know there will still be transition items to go over for a while, but the bulk of it… is done. I am unemployed.
But the date of March 1, the official transition date, just makes things feel… real. And scary. And exciting. And sad. And a plethora of other emotions. I’m excited for this next adventure but also scared about the unknown.
I have this amazing sense of freedom right now. The kids and I leave for Barcelona tomorrow morning and I’m not worried about taking my laptop to make sure I stay on top of work. Because I don’t have any! Though funny enough, my inbox and to do list are plenty full of lots of other things I haven’t had the time to get done and while I’ve always balanced (like anyone else) my home and work, I’m just not sure where to start!! So after our quick trip, I plan to tackle those and then get to work on plan B – my new job…
