It’s been 2 months since I was told I was being let go at Big Audit. In that time a few minor setbacks cropped up that can be magnified by the whole losing your job thing if you let it. My iPad screen cracked that first week or so. My tooth cracked last week. It feels like a few other things have occurred.
Even after getting the news, we decided we could still afford to keep The Baby Sitter and I could use the help to work on projects around the house, run critical errands, and job hunt. On that last point, I want to point out that job hunting during normal times can be slow. Each time I’ve been between jobs, it’s taken several weeks to several months before I was brought on just because of the byzantine processes of Corporate America. During a Pandemic, jobs are even harder to come by, especially for someone who specializes in a particular DM software solution.
I did manage to get the basement painted. I used an old 5 gallon bucket of ceiling paint that I had bought for my condo in 2003 and never used. I wouldn’t use this for a real project but it was suitable for covering up the smudges getting the ceiling and walls one uniform color of white (more or less).
