UNEMPLOYMENT 7.2000001%

7.2000001%

I'm the .2000001% ! Yea yesterday the bad economy finally trickled down to my job. My boss told me he had some bad news and I said "what? I'm getting laid off?" He kinda stutters and says "ummmm Yea I'm sorry". I say "that's ok I was expecting it". He told me when things pickup he will call me back. Cool! I may be weird, but EVERY ONE'S lives has its up and downs. Life is what you make of it. You can look at it two ways..... your glass being half full or half empty. I'm not rich by no means and I have never aspired to be a millionaire (although that would REALLY support my biking habit and travel). Financially I'm good until May 1st after that I may start to get a little worried, but until then I'm going to enjoy life and the time off. I do need one thing from all my readers, to keep working! I need all your tax dollars so I can draw unemployment. The building\construction market will pick up somewhat when it warms up, so actually I'm not all that stressed about it. I have a couple of friends that work some weird schedules so I hope I get to do some riding with them.

Before I got the can, I got the hookup on one of those cameras that Greg has. Go Pro helmet cam! It finally came Friday. Hopefully I will get to take it to Bay's Mountain tomorrow. Austin and I will try to get a ride in after the workday. It's raining today so it's probably going to be nasty up there working on the trail. We'll see.

Beginning Sunday, since I'm amongst the unemployed, I am setting a goal to ride everyday (road\mtn) and run 5K twice next week. The only thing I will default to is if it rains. Actually if you ask me, I think the layoff came at an opportune time to get a good start on my 2009 fitness level. So if you see a cyclist climbing out of a dumpster dressed in a Maxxis or NTMBA kit its just me.....
