Punch it in the face. WTF, life? Lemons???
Thank you for your support. I didn't answer all the comments yesterday, because I was a little overwhelmed with the entire situation. Just know that I appreciate your concern, your advice, and your offers to take matters into your own hands.
You know, hypothetically.
It looks like I have been laid off indefinitely. My boss is also not getting paid, because without that grant, there is no money. And it's just a 2 person show around here.
He assured me that I will get my check before he gets his, but we don't know when that will be.
It's been a stressful 24 hours.
I'm looking into unemployment right now. Plus, with my pole dancing skills to fall back on, I know we won't starve.
But things are going to be tight for a while.
My biggest hope is that the government will get its head out of its butt and give us that money that they promised in writing. If that happens, I will have my job back, and work here for the rest of my life (approximately).
(sadly, we aren't sure that it will ever come)
My second biggest hope is that I will inherit a fortune from an unknown relative who secretly reads my blog.
(It's kind of a long shot)
And I don't even want to think about job hunting.
But for now, I have some extra time on my hands. And I have a few project ideas floating around, which I never had time for when I had a full time job.
Good combination? Why yes, I think so.
See? Silver lining.
Lemon-scented silver lining.
I need a hug.
