What she IS telling you (Annie)

As we had hoped, I am getting laid off from work at the end of February.  This is very good news because it means a severance package, a year extension of my benefits plus unemployment.  Beats the heck out of just quitting when we're ready to leave here.

Tada!

Thats what happened to me about 32 years ago. I had taught at a middle school for three years and decided teaching was not for me! I wasn't going to sign up for the next year and I got a lay off notice instead of a contract.

I was so happy. The unemployment at the time was not much less than my pay, minus taxes and childcare and other expenses.

I became a stay at home mom and explored my own art.
