hmm....losing the job now gives you time to volunteer at the Toonseum! (that might keep your mind off things and i know you've wanted to go there!)

The closing song from Life of Brian. Always look on the bright side of life. (whistle whistle whistle) Laughing How appropriate!

That song is my ring tone! I'm fine about the job, enjoying sleeping in. Miss Tristan, but I have Dolly to cheer me up. I haven't even started applying for unemployment---which I will take care of tomorrow! I'm supposed to get some sort of severance, but they haven't sent the paperwork yet, so who knows. I have a roof over my head, and food on the table, I have you guys to vent to, and get advice from, so I am truly blessed!

Glad you're doing okay all things considered.............I'd apply for the unemployment right away, maybe that would speed up the severance paperwork when the state tries to hit them up for your unemployment money. What's the job market like near you? It's still really bad here by me.

Thank heavens for Dolly. I'm sure she won't mind a lil extra hugging to cheer you up.

Mags, it's so good to hear from you! A little rest and down time, especially with Dolly, sounds good to me. cat

I know it's hard to wrap your head around being businesslike right now, but it might be helpful to ask advice from HR at your old work (if there is such a thing) about when and how to file what/when/where. Hoo, ask about every assistance possible from everyone you speak to, there and elsewhere. You can't assume they'll tell you about all your options; you must ask. Any assistance you can get, TAKE!

I'm glad we're some of that. I love you

please keep us posted, Mags.. I know that with the loss of the job your money options must be pretty low, but any chance of coming to NYC for a weekend, or even mid week since you are not working, just to let off some steam and chill out.

At least in MI, you can apply for unemployment assistance straight away and choose the date assistance begins. As long as the date is not too much in advance of the day one shows up to the unemployment office, the assistance can be somewhat retroactive... Like a Star @ heaven

Boy, that's different than in Illinois. You have to stand in line for hours to file a new claim, fill out paperwork, THEN your benefit year starts. You don't get anything for the first week you're out of work (that's the "waiting week"), then you get benefits every two weeks. Direct deposit or debit card only, no check in the mail, no statement of benefits either (to prove your income to HUD).

I have not been job hunting---just running errands with my mom! I did file for unemployment---very demoralizing. I do think a tripto NYC is in order, but not until I get everything under control. I can get a cheaper ticket using Megabus, though it's stop is not as convenient as Port Authority. We have a waiting week here in PA also, and I'm still waiting on severance from work---if they still go through with it! I'm doing okay, though. I think once I get my unemployment, and figure out what I bills I have, etc. I will think about visiting NYC, and my brother---I haven't been to TX in at least 4 years! Since I'm not locked into any particular dates, I can probably get a good fare---and if I get bumped, that would be even better!

I appreciate all the good wishes, more than you know!!!!!

Well... At least the application is over. I hope you can do the weekly maintenance (or whatever the schedule is) online. That helps. My husband had to file in 2009, and the online application and direct deposit options made things so much easier. And, when he found work, he could stop the payments online too. No standing in endless likes at the employment office.

Enjoy your trips. You deserve some time without the stress and weirdness. :-)

i was wondering the same thing,Sue.
if money got straightened out before the end of the month i'd tell ya to come over here the 27th and 28th......was talking to Bill Plympton today and he's having a signing on the 27th and there's going to be something interesting at MoCCA on the 28th i'm going in for. i wish i could go in for the 27th and 28th but i'm not sure.'

too bad you don't know somebody who works for an airline...i don't know if they still do it, but i used to know people who could go practically anywhere on a free ticket (they'd get from the person they knew who worked for the airline...usually a relativfe)BUT they had to go on standby. fine if you don't have a job or kids to worry about!

Me too. Are you on vacation? I hope so. A little time away from the daily stress is a good thing.

Still in Pittsburgh---just getting COBRA and stuff straightened out. I received one week of UC, but it was for the second week I filed for, so who knows what's going on there. COBRA will cost me half of my UC each month, but I really think the expense is worth it! Not really job hunting, but I have been dog sitting for a few neighbors---that has kept me busy! Feeling pretty good, but not sure if a trip is in the near future. I'd like to make it to the Con this year, and/or the Flea Market.
