I lost my job today. Just about two hours ago, actually.

I’m currently sitting on my couch with a glass of wine going through what I assume are the stages you go through when one gets laid off.

Anger.

Sadness.

Paranoia.

Wine. More wine. Would like some more wine.

Acceptance.

OK, I haven’t reached acceptance yet. As a matter of fact I’m in pretty bad shape. I’m faced with finding a job in the worst economy our country as seen in a very long time.

And that scares the crap out of me.

But maybe this is an opportunity to do something I really love to do. Or at least something I really like to do.

In the meantime, I’ll take a week, drink some wine, have a good cry fest, revamp my resume and hope to God someone wants to hire me.

Any of you looking for a freelancer? I can write my ass off.

I’m going to get some more wine in the meantime.
