chuckle Well i am starting my 2 week


Well i am starting my 2 week of being unemployed. I can honestly say that i have not done a single thing. Depression period i guess. Next Week i am going through and doing my spring cleaning at home. I am going through everything that we own and try to get this mess cleaned up. I have however spent a great deal of time with my mother in law, I love her so much she is so good to me. I dont know how people do it when they stay at home. I am starting my garden soon and i hope that will occupy some of my time. and my spring cleaning as well but honestly i dont know how people do it. I know it is cheaper if i stay home but i am so used to being on the go that i feel like i am going stir crazy.

Think of it this way ...

Your home is now your office! You are in charge of the cleaning schedule, the catering, and the entertainment, as well as the landscaping and interior decorating! Your husband, and anyone else who comes into your home, is your client. If you want to keep their business, you must keep the office running smoothly!
