Someone’s Got A Case Of The Mondays

I got laid off this morning.

I’ve finally stopped crying, and the more I say it, the easier it is. And the more numb I feel. Or nauseous.

Sure, it’s the position, and not me. Sure it’s the economy. Whatever you want. The bottom line is: I no longer “do” anything. And that is humiliating.

I don’t know how to do anything.

The last thing I can try to “do” is to drown myself in the shower.

  1. Look at it this way.. you have no more Mondays to worry about for a while……?Well.. to keep a long story short, the economy hit me as well, it didn’t hit me, but someone close to me. All we can do I guess is tighten our belts and keep putting money under the mattress. What kinda job did you do anyway?You can always come down to MD and race with me. I need another dedicated driver/mechanic. We’ll go pro. Win it big.

  2. awww that sucks… stupid economy… I hope you have no problems getting back to your feet again.  Brush it off, keep moving, lest you find yourself stuck and unable to continue.

  3. OMG. I was just about to write you a reply to your comment you left on one of my posts saying “mondays suck” but then I read THIS….yeah.I’m speechless, pretty much.Are you okay? 😦*biiiiiig squeeeze*

  4. [= heyy . thanks for the hug , hun . don’t worry . it’s all good . how are you holding up ?. okay i hope ?.or are you still holding your breath underwater ?.[=

  5. Well it’s good to hear that you’re okay. Or trying to be, at least. You deserve A for effort I know it’s gonna sound a lil cliche but seriously, keep your chin up. The sun will come out tomorrow.(well, maybe not so literally but you know what I mean)

  6. Can you claim unemployment from the people you worked for? That would at least keep the funds coming in a little bit, right?As far as “careerist girl” types are concerned, I’ve only ever really found teachers to be appealing. Then again, I haven’t really lived in the real world all that long, it’s just been college girls for the most part.I don’t really have a say in how much or how little I work out. It’s mandatory that I work out 3 times a week. My job makes it that way. It’s nice working out and all, but I don’t have any goals for myself when it comes down to it, so I’m just as bad as a weekend warrior. Swimming is fun, though. Maybe if I keep it up, I’ll be able to swim across the Chesapeake =D

  7. @whotakethmycoke – @human_element – @crazeeswee – @LetheOfHeaven – @jai_ko – @andromeda539 – @Takingthe38th – @babjengi – @agirlnamelulu – @reckless_eagle – @whoaamello –  Thanks everyone, for your kind and encouraging words. I really appreciate it. It sucks because there are so many people out there in the same boat, which is indicative of how much it all has gone to hell, but as long as I have a good support network I will be able to float on by them. @Takingthe38th – I can collect starting tomorrow…or at least I can file. My stupid SS number falls in the “end of the week” category, but at least I have some cushion and a teeeeeeny tiny severance package that will let me pay at least some of my bills.@reckless_eagle – You’d be surprised at what a great housekeeper I can be. As long as I’m getting something in return. This whole “I’m going to clean your house out of the goodness of my heart” crap stopped a long time ago 😛
