So we're in week three (I think, it's hard to keep track) of adjusting to our new normal (AKA unemployment) and so far it's not too different from our old normal.
Except Scott is, you know, around, a whole lot more.
Which is not a bad thing by any means, but it's an adjustment to my groove just the same. Please forgive me if that sounds horrible, I don't mean it that way at all, but our daily routine is different and we're still figuring stuff out. I'm trying to shift my sometimes Negative Nellie perspective to the Positive Pollyanna side by focusing on appreciating the gift of more time spent together. There are definitely projects around the house we need to tackle (yuck!) or lunches and matinees to run off to (whoop! whoop!).
This week Scott's going to three different job hiring events. Job fairs? Cattle calls?
I don't know if anything ever really materializes from these types of events, since they are so large, but he's hopeful his resume will end up in the right hands and maybe he'll get an interview.
If nothing else, he gets to break in his new suits. Grey with maroon tie on Monday (he waited to put on his suit jacket until right before because it's 8,429 degrees outside).
And navy suit, blue shirt and yellow power tie today (along with a yellow pocket silk, not pictured for a bit of extra WOW factor--and I do like that look but I still felt it my duty to tease him a bit about adding a gold pinky ring and telling everyone to call him Guido).
Which is a good thing.
