Hi, new here

Newly unemployed as of this past Tuesday. I'm trying to view this time off as an 'extended vacation'. :)

While I'm going to be ok financially for a while (we live pretty frugally, are debt free and I got a decent severance), I thought it might be a good idea to find a group, at least online who are dealing with the same things I am.

Hope I can learn a few things and offer support to newer members. I've been unemployed before, although it's been over 10 years.

hi welcome to the group! glad to have you

Welcome. I'm on "vacation" for a year and a half now. It's starting to get to me as I'm a senior level employee and recently moved to a small town. I made it tough for myself. I'm sure things will be easier for you. At least you have a severance package. Good luck to you.
