Hardly Unemployed

My two-week unemployment is about to come to a close. I’ll be able to hold on to my jobless cred a little while longer, though, since my health insurance doesn’t kick in until June 1. Why is that? Is it to make sure you’re not taking a new job to fill an urgent medical need? Or is it just administrative? I doubt the latter because I was able to get Alden insured on day one. I know they can do that. And yet the former seems ludicrous. My last two jobs both took multiple meetings over the course of several weeks just to get my official offer letter. It’s got to be the latter and I’m just applying my experience to an much larger group of people, most of whom arrange themselves faster than I have recently. So it’s the former, right? Does anyone know?

Fascinating insurance questions aside, I’m quite excited to start my new job. I’m working for a former boss and I suspect we’ll get along well just like we did last time. She’s one of the more demanding bosses I’ve had, but also taught me more than, perhaps, anyone else I’ve ever worked for. I’ll take that deal. I’m at work to work, so I don’t mind swinging for the fences. She also has a history of respecting my whole life, which goes a long long way. I’ve already told her that any time I travel from New York I will need to take Damon and Alden with me so that our nursing isn’t jeopardized. She didn’t have any problem with that. So that’s a good indicator that we shall be fine.

I do think I’ll be doing a hunk of traveling down to Tennessee until we can get our apartment sold and get down there permanently. We had another open house today. It was only an hour long and five families came through. We’re getting tons of positive feedback, so now we just need the right people to turn up and write a check. I know in the current economic climate that being on the market for three weeks (and counting) is not something to complain about. And yet. Sell house!
