Number 13 is believed to be a bad luck number. Some buildings don’t even have floor 13, some houses avoid number 13, and some even believe bad luck falls on Friday the 13th. Are you one of those?
I don’t completely believe that entirely, but today’s incident kind of makes me re-think it and I was completely caught off guard, totally unexpected.
My morning started with the usual -working out then ate my breakfast/post workout meal after I got to work.
Baked sweet potatoes and a slice of Egg Loaf Frittata.
Got hungry a bit before lunch time so I scarfed down a small container of Bo Bo Cha Cha I made couple days ago.
And then the incident happened.
I was shocked, sad, angry, disappointed and had a little hard time to digest the whole situation when I was told from today I am no longer bringing home the check. To top it off, Hubby K also got canned couple days ago because the place went down. How could this happen? One of us, fine, we could do it. But both of us??? It was hard for me to digest the whole thing. I couldn’t even contain my tears whenever I thought back of what just happened today.
We also made a pit stop at Henry’s Market cause I saw their macadamia nuts were on sale for $9.99/lbs! Can’t beat that price! (penny pinching mode has begun)
*sigh* I guess I really have to say bye bye to grass fed beef and organic stuff.
Got home, I felt like I wanted to sweat out all my devastation and anxiety so I blasted 2 more workouts back to back! Today I did a total 3 workouts! I was sweaty but at the same time I felt a bit lighter and not as devastated as before.
Didn’t really eat a full dinner, other than the last half baked sweet potato and munched on the macadamia nuts.
Anyway, this will be a big challenge for both Hubby K and I. I might want to sleep this over, get my mind together, fix my resume and start job hunting. We’ll see how’s out there. I will miss my beloved co-worker C, who was also being let go.
Not everything was bad though. I checked my email and my Braised-to-Oven Fried Chicken recipe was chosen by Tropical Traditons to be featured on their recipe page. As a reward, they’ll give me 1 FREE quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. A small thing but it lighten up my mood today. If you want to get a free coconut oil from Tropical Traditions, submit your favorite recipe using coconut at their website. More detailed info can be read here.
Good night everyone.
How do you deal with devastation?
