Unemployment Benefits

August 11, 2013 at 11:10 pm 1 comment

So, I lost my job a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve yet to fully comprehend all of the documentation I’ve received from the Unemployment Compensation program, Cobra, and the 401(k) people, but tonight I’m taking a moment to celebrate the following benefits:

1.  Winter clothes in storage. Yes, it’s mid-August and I’ll start switching back in a month or so anyway, but what the heck, it feels good.

2.  Alterations on misfit clothing begun. The key benefit represented here being that this means I figured out how to run a bobbin all by myself.

3.  House is tidy.

4.  I’ve been eating homemade meals. (And there aren’t any dirty dishes in the sink or on the counter or in the oven.)

5.  Files from my first home computer, which hasn’t been plugged in since 2004, have been transferred to my current computer.

6.  My purse has no extra lint, receipts, expired coupons, or 10-pound lump of pennies.

7.  My garden looks as if I know what I’m doing.

8.  Xenosaga III completed.

9.  My home laptop now has the latest version of itunes loaded, my music is in The Cloud, and I have synced my iPod shuffle that I got for Christmas 2 years ago.

10.  Caught up on laundry, email, facebook, and sleep.

11.  It’s Sunday night. And I have no nasty black-pit feeling in my stomach.

12.  Last but not least, my favorite benefit:  Time to write.
