…and mildly depressed. I guess my idea of being laid off was, “Hey, I can spend a week just relaxing. Then I’ll spend a week dejunking the house. Then I will be rested and ready to look for a new job.” I have accomplished none of those things.
In Meyers-Briggs land, I am a J, while Kay is a P. She thrives in chaos, while I thrive in order. And the days are chaotic around here, especially with workers tromping through the house working on our bathrooms. My home is not relaxing. Which means I haven’t made headway in goal #1. And being a linear person, that greatly reduces my motivations for goals #2 (dejunk) and #3 (get a job).
I guess this is life. I am glad to see Kay so happy. And the children have been so happy lately, they make me feel jealous on behalf of other families. These things keep me from sinking too low for too long. But in general, I’m feeling down lately. I also have to remind myself that it’s natural to experience emotional ups & downs when you’re laid off.
But I may have to get a job just so I can escape to a nice, quiet place.
