Bear has been laid off for almost two weeks now. He's said more than once that he's ready to go back to work, but I'm not sure I'm ready for him to go back. In the last week he totally redecorated/renovated my craft room (see my other blog for pictures), cleaned the house (it's SPOTLESS), organized a bunch of things that really needed it (including the food cupboards which were a mess), and even done laundry.
I could get used to this!
It hasn't been perfect - I had to work both jobs yesterday and he was definitely not happy when I finally got home and got on the computer instead of cuddling him on the couch. I hope to make it up to him tonight. He has also been battling a nasty cold that settled into his chest and has been making life pretty miserable for my dear Bear.
Overall, though, I think this layoff has been more good than bad - and I had no idea that I would ever be saying that.
