Biddydom

We've done it now!! The spouse and I have booked a trip to Mexico......an ALL INCLUSIVE!! Does this enter us into the relm of grey haired biddies? Do I have to learn how to play "canasta"?

Our exhaustion from the craziness of the past year of our lives has caught up with us. I told the travel agent that I wanted to go somewhere that someone would feed me and maybe even wipe my butt, preferably not the same person. And I wanted to leave in a week and we don't have current passports (mine expired 2 years ago and 'the spouses' picture he still has braces and a pimpily chin) Since our move 3 weeks ago all we have prayed for is sleep and our prayers haven't been answered so we have had to force the hand.

Maybe "my" prayers were answered.......but in the worst possible way. After 6 months of hard work, I lost my job on Thursday morning and had the trip booked before lunch. Budget cut backs (I worked for a not-for-profit) caused 3 of the last hired to be "layed off" with no chance of being rehired. I was only mildly surprised, I knew they were having $ problems. But I was surprised that my department got cut. I was the only one bringing $ into the place, more then enough to pay the cost of employing me. I only started my blog last week so I know I haven't been "dooced". Have I been "predooced"?

Will I be employable when I return from my ALL INCLUSIVE a 65 year old, theme sweater wearing, grey haired, saggy boobed, napper? Or will all the young wipper snappers be taking all the "good" jobs?
