I wonder what it sounds like when you go over a fiscal cliff. Is there screaming? Crunching? An explosion?
I've been invited to a New Year's party at a friend of my husband's. This will be an interesting topic, I'm sure will come up. I'll just sit back and listen.
I checked out the new little gym my husband got me a month to month membership to. It was a good deal. It's not like those big gyms with scads of machines, row after row of treadmills, and a pool.
It's tiny and has one elliptical, two treadmills, a few bikes, and weights. I have an electronic key card so I can go any time I want.
He feared it was going to be expensive. Silly him. As if I'd want a membership to something that was big bucks. It's the same or less than any LA Fitness type place, but small.
No skinny muscular women that look like they live on lettuce and diet coke. No 20 year old men all working out together preparing for any competitions.
Small. Quaint. Quiet. I can be the only person in there, should I desire. It's 5 minutes from work. I can cancel at any time since going over the fiscal cliff could mean canceling everything but eating and mandatory transportation.
Hey. You just never... know.
I start tomorrow.
I do have a job. This year. I received a txt from my boss last week that went like this:
Boss: I have good news and bad news.
Boss: The Purchase Order came in.
Boss: That's the good and the bad...
Me: Oh! So good news, I have a job. Bad news, I have a job.
It's a joke with us since our jobs can be frustrating. We would have it no other way, but we talk about living the life of no stress and wondering what that's all about.
I don't think they can pull my PO, so I'm good through 2013. I'm hearing 2014 ain't looking so good.
But that's a ways from now. And they put him and me on for a full 12 months... so there is that too.
I'll keep working as much as I can, preparing, until they tell me no more.
There has been a lot of bad in this past year and a lot of good. There is rarely one without the other.
I'm concerned about 2013. I have a job and I'm concerned. I'm hoping that when we add up the columns for 2013, the positive will outweigh the negative.
Stay safe if you're traveling.
From my home to yours, Happy New Year!
