I took a promotion to Assistant Store Manager. It’s only for about 5 months until we close, but its more hours, a raise, bonuses, holiday pay and a severance package. Plus, it will look good on my resume.
I will probably take unemployment for a while after the store closes.
I’m going to rent an apartment in Plainfield for a year. I don’t know where I want to settle for the long run, but this will give me time to decide. I will still be close to Emily and Mark.
I’m going to take 1 class online this fall. I will enroll for more classes next spring, but this will keep me going for now.
I know these are not long term decisions, but they have relieved some of the stress.
Do I want to stick it out at work until we close? Do I want to draw unemployment? If I don’t stay until the end I won’t get unemployment.
Do I want to find a full time job and go to school at night? Do I want to do a little daycare again?
Do I want to buy a condo or rent an apartment? Do I want to stay in Plainfield or move to another city?
I want to live somewhere that I don’t have to worry about home maintenance. If something goes wrong I want to be able to call someone to take care of it for me.
Mark said something last night that hurt my feelings. I don’t think he meant any harm by it, but it was insensitive.
Do I bring it up today and talk it out, or do I let it go and chalk it up to a misunderstanding? I don’t want it to be a big deal, but last night it certainly felt that way. I’m still smarting from it a little this morning. I think I need to address it since it’s still bothering me.
