1. I can go to the gym in the middle of the day and beat the crowds. And I can wonder: who are all these able bodied, non-retirement-age folks there? They don't work with me, so they aren't federal employees. Trophy wives? Shift workers? Trust funders? Who are all you people?
2. I can do house projects. I know, boring, but I planted seven trees all by myself, and they weren't small trees either. One was an apple tree; another benefit of being temporarily unemployed is that I can see if it is actually getting the six hours of sun it requires. I can be heard to exclaim, "There's sun on the apple tree!" throughout the day.
3. I can go on trips! I'm still sorting this one out, but there are a lot of possibilities. Hot springs in Canada? Colorado? Time to be spontaneous!
4. I can hang out here:
|Love my hot tub. LOVE. Note the yellow ducky.|
|I have time to take lots of silly selfies, too. You're welcome.|
