Hi Ho, Hi Ho...It's Back to Work I Go

After being laid off for just over six months, I got the call to return to work last night. I will start next Tuesday and will find out more about my job and shift then. I also have an interview (with the same company) on Wednesday for a different type of job.
I must say, this layoff has been such a blessing. I've been doing factory work since I was 19 years old and have never had a summer off, a spring break, or any of the other fun stuff that comes with college life. I went to college full-time all while working full-time. This summer has been wonderful! I've gotten to relax. I've gotten to scrapbook a lot!!! I've gotten to spend more time with my friends. I've gotten to sleep at night. (I worked overnights before.) I've just gotten to enjoy life :)
But it is time to go back to work. And the timing couldn't be more perfect! I got to go on all the vacations we had planned. And I will return right after Labor Day, so it all works out well :) There are many things we would like to do and buy that just can't happen with unemployment. I am fortunate to have a job that just put me on a temporary layoff and didn't cut everyone permanently. I have been applying for other jobs while being laid off and haven't had any success. It has been nice to know that my old job was still a possibility.
I hope that all of my readers that are out of work, or have family or friends out of work will find work soon. In the mean time, enjoy your time off and things will work out in the end :)
