Okey dokey...moving on....

At the zoo, last summer.  If only I could easily remove the chick in the background....

Yesterday I cleaned the house.  But I didn't apply for any jobs.  Because I didn't feel like it.

Today I played racquetball (yay!) and applied for 3 jobs.  One is particularly interesting because it's part-time.  Monday and Tuesday.  I think this would work for me.  Maybe.  I finally heard from UNM (by e-mail), and discovered I did not get the job I thought would be so awesomely good for me.  Oh, well.  I had a good cry, and am really over it now.  Romeo was so sweet, he kept texting me to find out how I was feeling about it, giving me all kinds of appreciated supportive words.  He knew that I was really excited about that position.  We had talked about it before I got the news, and I admitted that although there is a possibility that I would get it, I wouldn't put all my hopes in getting it.  Basically, I lied.  In many ways I thought it would be perfect for me, but alas, it was not to be. 

It was beautiful here today.  The next week day we have a day in the 50's (w/no wind, please) I am going to the zoo.  Take some photos, wander around, check out the gift shops.  Why not take advantage of being out of work?  I can only apply for so many jobs, and then you just get sick of the whole thing.  If there was a way to stay home all the time, I would do it.  My oldest son has a very high paying position and offered to pay for me to continue to go to school.  But I really NEED to work.  It wouldn't be the greatest financial decision to stay home.  So, I continue.  Soldier on.  Put on my big girl panties, lol.

Love, 365

  1. I'm sorry about the job. I understand the feeling, having been there before. Now I have a job I love but I don't make shit for money. If I had to live on what I make, I would be living in a hole in the ground. I'd have enough food, but that's about it.

    I'll be doing a bit of house cleaning myself. I need to do a LOT of it.

    1. Thanks, Ami. I appreciate it! Like you, I just want work that I would enjoy. I will keep on looking.
      Ugh, house cleaning. I like to put music on and sing (which no one wants to hear, so it's a good thing everyone else is at work), or dance around (another thing no one else shoudl see, lol). It does make the job go faster though!

Last night we had a thunderstorm, which the dog hates (what dog doesn't?), so Romeo decides to shut  the only open window, thinking the ...
