My Top Ten Wonderful Reasons for Being Unemployed

For your reading pleasure, here is a list I've compiled of my top 10 wonderful reasons for my being unemployed:

1. I can clean and REALLY organize my house. Especially my "truck-stop" bathroom in the master bedroom. Ick. And I can purge, purge, purge... My hubby will LOVE me.

2. I can play spiderman with my son when he gets home from school. Pshew! Pshew!

3. I can begin testing recipes and taking pictures!!! WOOO HOOO!

4. I can go back to writing my book... which has been on again, off again all year, and now can officially be ON again.

5. I can bake for Christmas without feeling rushed and uptight!

6. I can enjoy the evenings with a home cooked meal I've had time to make - usually my husband does the cooking because he gets home at 4, and I get home at 6.

7. I can relax with my boys as we snuggle and cuddle and watch Christmas movies. Boy... is my husband gonna LOVE THAT. NOT!

8. My son can sleep a whole 90 minutes longer in the mornings before going to school! That totally ROCKS.

9. I can fix a decent, healthy sit-down breakfast for my kid instead of grab-it and roll! (he actually begged me for oatmeal the other night)

10. I can sit back and see what God has in store for us! The best thing of all!!!

Sounds like a plan!

I was thinking about you yesterday - thinking about the changes in store - and I smiled when I thought about how this is probably going to be one of your absolute favorite times in your whole life. Sometimes God just has unexpected ways of granting the desires of our heart, you know? Nest away. :-)

I stumbled across your site a month ago and have been "lurking" for a while - but I want to come out of hiding to say that I am so happy that you are finding all the wonderful silver linings...I lost my job last year and I have found that even though cash is so tight, I feel so productive at home and have so much fun! Enjoy your blessings!
