Well, it's official - we are gonna be 'on the dole'

Well, we will not be "on the dole" at all - but we will be "out of work"....

SCOTT AND I BOTH RESIGNED FROM OUR JOBS!! 

Actually, Scott just did this yesterday - but I gave my notice over a year ago.  I work for an awesome company who treats me (almost) like family and I wanted to give them ample notice of my impending departure (because I am sooooo important and sooooo hard to replace I figured the standard 2 weeks just wasn't going to fly - ha!).   I have been working for them for the past 4 years and have seen our little firm grow from 8 to 40.  Pretty cool stuff.  Considering I was the sole recruiter for most of that growth, I feel like I have made a little stake in the ground here.  It's been a good run, but it's time to shake the dust (and the crumbs and coffee stains and ill tempered AC) of this old cubicle and SEE THE WORLD!

But I digress....

Soon - we will be JOBLESS!! Whoo hoo!  Sounds pretty odd/insensitive to be celebrating such a thing given joblessness is still somewhat of an epidemic in our limping economy, but to be honest, we couldn't be happier!  Are we idiots? Perhaps.  But we don't think so.  In fact, we think we're on to something here...   Either way, it's official....it's happening...we are gettin' outta dodge!

Here's to penny pinching!

Congratulations on your new freedom! Words can't describe how ya'll must feel. Can't wait to do the same!

Wow, that's great! I can't wait to be in the same boat as you (no pun intended).

I know what you mean about it sounding odd to celebrate it, but most people want to stay employed so they can continue with their normal lives. But you are doing something unique and can't be saddled down by a job right now, don't worry you can always go back!

Best of luck!

Yeah!!! Looking forward to your departure and reading all about the cruising. Jobs will be available when you come back. We can't wait to be unemployed as well! (It does sound strange... ah well *shrug*)

Hooray! I know how liberating it can be, I remember it so clearly- so excited for you guys!! There are always other jobs in far off places... So when is the shoe sale ;)

Neophyte Cruiser said...

Good on ya'! You'll not regret cutting the dock-lines and getting out there. Your adventures will continue to grow...bien viaje, marineros!

Congratulations on the freedom!! Nothing feels better deep inside than the unknown, exciting feeling of not knowing what will happen next. Now you're free to do whatever and go wherever the wind might take you! Wonderful. /T&A
