I don't have to go to work for three months!!
If you would like the back story on why I went from a 40 hour week to zero, visit my post Alternative to Layoff, otherwise I will give you the short version. The job that I had been doing for the past 8 years was made redundant, and I was given the option of leaving the workplace, taking a new full-time position, or accepting the new 9 month seasonal position. At the time I desperately wanted to leave. I felt like I was in Eat, Pray, Love, or one of those books where people do big moves to improve their lives. However, being the practical person I am, thought it out and decided that I really should pay off my student loans before I do something drastic. So, I opted for the best of both worlds, which includes 3 months off a year.
It's 10:30 am right now. If I were at work I would be checking the clock every few minutes, impatiently waiting for my break and dreaming of being elsewhere. Right now I am sitting in my pj's on the couch, with the sunlight coming through my front window, surrounded by 3 sleeping cats each perched on their own chair. I feel out of sorts. I still can't fathom not going to work until June!
