It's Official

My boss announced that I'm going on a six month leave of absence, starting the 2nd of February, 2007 through to September 2007.

So I'll probably have a job if I decide to come back. I can extend our health insurance for the whole of the leave by paying for it all.

I haven't taken this much time off on purpose, since the middle of high school, because I was working summers when I could.

It's a very odd feeling.

A friend of mine asked, in email, "What are you going to do?" And when my typing was more than a page and a half of listing of things I wanted to do, I realized that I've actually been going a lot of background processing on what is next? She answered, well then I'm not entering the pool on when you're coming back. *grin*

She may be wise.

But I decided to take this smaller step just in case I do get the "I'm not making money" night sweats or something. I've been so driven for so long, it's starting to really sound nice to be driven by something other than money...
