Two Unexpected Positives About Being Laid Off

After not wearing my super cute Banana Republic suit pants for awhile I broke them out last week to get ready for my first interview. To my surprise they are too big! So my first unexpected positive about being laid off--I had to get my pants taken in! Definitely a first, and I like it!

The last 6 months to a year I have been up at night (waking Jake up and annoying him) yelling and swearing in my sleep! The last 2 months Jake was losing so much sleep he was getting mad at me, but mostly getting mad at my ridiculously stressful/nonsensical job. My subconscious was not happy! However, since being laid off I sleep like a, you guessed it, baby!

Congrats on the loose pants and on better sleep. Good riddance, Keystone!

Ariel,
True story: I randomly logged into MySpace after a several month hiatus and almost commented on one of your work photos that you'd posted something like, "Well, at least you have a job in this economy!" And then checked your blog later (sorry I sound like a stalker!) to see that you actually don't have a job. =( Sorry to hear that! I hope that you continue to enjoy being laid off... But you find a job before you get waaaaaay too skinny!! ;)
