But the job was really doing a bad number on my spine since an injury a few years ago, so the down-time is a blessing - a chance to rest and recover and read a whole lot more. It took 5 weeks for unemployment insurance to find its way to my bank account, and it's about 2/3 what I was earning. But my pain is so much less now that I think I may just flat out retire and learn to make do with less.
It takes a while to get used to living like that, Jo. But it sounds like you are better off as far as your health is concerned. Good luck for the future!
