Still Plugging Away

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I'm getting more and more discouraged on the job front. But I know that I can't go into a job interview with a discouraged attitude. So, I'm trying to get creative on when and where I apply for a job. And I'm trying to stay busy to keep my mind off of the discouragement. Pretty soon I'm going to have to find more things to keep me busy!

Job Hunting is Dragging Me Down

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I've been putting so much effort into finding a job and I still have nothing to show for it. I try to stay somewhat positive about it. But it seems to be harder and harder every day to do so. I'm hanging onto the knot at the end of the rope but my arms sure are sore!

    I am going through the exact same process -- I pray as often as I can that those that are laid off/looking for jobs find at least SOMETHING to make ends meet -- I wish you the best of luck! emoticon

    My son has been trying for months to find a new job closer to his fiance and where they want to settle. There is just so little available and so specialized. Luckily he has a job here but is anxious to get moving. emoticon

    My heart goes out to you. My partner is still struggling and so the family is kind of hanging on my salary which is not covering. So all I can say is hang in there God will come through in the end. emoticon

I Woke Up Early Today

Monday, May 16, 2011

I woke up about 4:30 today and really couldn't get back to sleep. But it's no problem today - I actually feel pretty motivated and anxious to get the week started. There's lots of things I want to accomplish this week and now's a great time to start. So, look out world - I'm diving in. (Okay, it's more of a jumping in, but I'm doing it!)

    I woke up at 5 and never slept any-more as I had to be up at 6:30 for work. Hope to catch up tonight.

    I woke up at 4 and read for an hour and went back to sleep until 8. I'm sure that was due to the medication I take for my OA and part from my cat laying on top of me and going to sleep because I couldn't move. emoticon

    I woke up at 4 and was only able to doze off and on until 6 and finally gave up and got up.

I Sometimes Hate the Rain

Sunday, May 15, 2011

My daughter got me tickets to the Detroit Tigers game today for Mother's Day. Thursday and Friday were gorgeous and 83. Yesterday had spotty showers and was 70. I woke up to rain, wind and 50 degree weather this morning. I'm bumming. Still trying to hold on to the belief that the rain may take a reprieve, but.... I'm hoping we'll at least get some rainchecks.

I'm still looking forward to at least spending some quality time with my baby. Sometimes we get into a mode where we don't always do that with people that we care about the most. So, we'll roll with the punches and find something fun to do. The only thing that would make it better would be to have my oldest baby with us. I haven't seen her since Thanksgiving and I really miss her and need to give her some hugs and kisses.

    Here we get black clouds and predictions of rain but it goes around us and we need it so much.

    I know I miss my children and feel the same way. Hopefully the emoticon will come out and allow you a fun day. As you said at least you will have the day with her. Think of the positive! Have a happy day together!

    I do hope the weather changes for you! It's not nice to watch a ballgame in the rain! It is Michigan...wait five minutes and the weather will change.

Yesterday Got To Me

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I had such a down day yesterday that I even hated to be around me. I had 3 interviews this past week and found out yesterday that I didn't get any of the positions. This just got me down and I seemed to fall faster into the great abyss the more I thought about it. Thank goodness I was able to finally sleep last night. I know I have to take stock of what I'm doing and where I want to go and how I want to do it. A lot of thoughts and planning will have to go into this the next couple of day, but I refuse to have another day like yesterday.

    Sorry, things can be so frustrating when they don't go like we want them to but I am sure God has just the job for you.
