Default After tomorrow, I'm unemployed.

For 3 weeks!!!

Gonna do so many things around the house, swapping services with my 30-year concrete client and having the driveway and walkway done with pavers, will completely tear apart my office, and rebuild it with the new monitor setup, and throw a shit ton of junk away. Paint it, and having a new floor put in. Once all that crap is done, we're going to do a pond-less waterfall feature in the front of the house and then remodel the kitchen. I'll let things settle after that, but we'll do the bathrooms next. Race car engine will likely be done in December in the cooler weather.

After only taking 6 days off since 2017, having the ability to turn off all alarms, and go at my own pace, is mind boggling to me.

3 weeks will feel really good, and then I'm back in the saddle at the new company on the 24th of May.

Yep, new company, in a senior management position, in the same Salesforce ecosystem. It's a 45% raise from where I'm at now. 25% of the take home pay from just the raise, pays for my monthly C8 payment.
