Unemployment is your friend
It happens to all of us now and then. "Headcount adjustments", I mean. You can work the net and bang on doors for a while, and there's always those posponed home improvement chores to finally attend to. Last time it happened to me I refloored the dining room and put a new roof on the casa. Sitting at home can get expensive that way. A nice long trip is not only a reasonable thing to do, it's a lot cheaper. Why not head to Newfoundland? If someone wants me, they can leave a message and I'll call them back.
Carpe that diem. You have a limited supply.
