I lost my job.

I knew my gut feeling was right. They said it has nothing to do with job performance (not that I was worried about that) but it was job elimination. And I can collect unemployment, so that's good. I guess they may have realized with all of the time I was taking off and things were still getting done that they didn't need anyone full time. And I made a very good salary for what I did. Gosh, they didn't really need me at all. I wasn't busy half the time so I spend most of my days staring at the clock praying for 5:00 to come quickly.

But at least this now lets me focus my time on my dog walking business and getting PG again. Lucky for me they are keeping my benefits until May 31st, so if I am blessed enough to get PG, that should last the entire time I'm at my RE until I go to the regular OB. And at that point I can get onto Ed's benefit plan.

I was smiling the whole time HR was talking to me. I just kept thinking this was perfect timing. Now I can de-stress about my job and focus on happy things and focus on getting my mind and body ready for my FET.

Ed is another story. He wants to kill my manager. He's furious but I keep telling him that this can be a very good thing. We just can't let it get to us. So I'm going out to lunch with my Mom today and I'll spend the rest of the day lounging on the couch with Jimmy. It's raining here so maybe I'll get some movies and popcorn. Sounds like a great day to me :D

Gosh, I'm glad you have such a positive perspective on it. I hope it does turn out to be a blessing.

I would say I'm sorry you lost your job, but it sounds like you are happy about it (?), so maybe I will say congrats???

(Hope that's not mean).

I'm sorry you lost your job but am happy you have such a positve feeling about it. So, as Busted said, congrats, maybe? I hope it turns out to be just what you needed.

I was telling Mike how sad I was that you lost your job until I got to the part where you were happy about it. I'm glad you have a positive outlook about the future.

I'm glad you're still able to go ahead with the FET! This is *perfect* timing in that sense. I'm glad your dog walking business is taking off.

Kind of reminds me of, "When a door closes, God opens a window."

Here's your window, sweetie.
