Today was my last day at the office. I have enough extra hours and vacation to cover until the end of July. I’m owed about $650 in expense reimbursement, but my former boss knows how to get a hold of me, and the company has my forwarding address. I don’t have to be at my new job until August 11, almost two weeks.
We’re “moving” to Pittsburgh on the 6th, when Daughter Person, the cats and I will begin living with my mom. Dad will be going with us and we’ll be establishing residency on the 7th (to avoid Dad having to show up for jury duty on the 11th!) – getting our new licenses and getting the cars registered, inspected, etc. I’m not likely to be returning to the DC area until our house here is under contract. Dad will be going back and forth until we close.
Until then, I’m going to be doing a combination of relaxing, getting rid of things on craigslist/freecycle/facebook and packing. I’ve had good luck getting rid of things on the local Facebook “yard sale” group. It’s nice to not have to worry about work for a while. I don’t have to respond to e-mails and I don’t have to go to an office – although I do have to wake up to take Daughter Person to daycare.
And the best part – I don’t have to worry about money while I’m not working!
