Laid off, downsized, fired, given the boot. But with severance through June, kids out of the house and both of us suffering a bit of wanderlust anyway, I'm not exactly broken up by this chain of events. Options abound. The challenge is figuring out how to use the next seven months. The cautious approach is to go full time into job search mode immediately; best case I end up getting paid double for a while. That's not the least bit enticing.
I'm wondering, since I plan to leave Indiana anyway, why the heck should I stay here in the cold after my daughter heads back home from her Christmas visit? I'm thinking I can job search from damn near anywhere.
If it was summer, I'd have started a transcontinental ride already.
