Sunday, January 30, 2011      4 comments

I went to the doctor the other day for my semi-annual thyroid check-up. It's a little high this time, so my daily dosage has been lowered. Of course, the first thing done was the weigh-in : 7 pounds down since my last visit! It took me a coup... Read more
Expanding My Volunteer Experiences

I went to church today to attend a couple "mini" meetings on how to get involved in the church more. I'm confident it will make me feel better physically and emotionally to be more involved. And I know there's a great side effect: getting to k... Read more

I know it's only the first week of unemployment, but I find I'm trying to work hard at keeping my spirits up. I am trying to stay busy and I'm following every lead that someone gives me. I am realistic in knowing that it takes time to find a j... Read more
Sagging Spirits
Wednesday, January 26, 2011      2 comments

Despite my good report at the doctor's yesterday (I lost 2 more pounds!), I feel myself getting a little discouraged. I know I've been seriously looking for a job for only two weeks now, but I haven't gotten one interview out of all the applica... Read more

Time to Re-adjust Schedule Again
Monday, January 24, 2011      3 comments

I get to re-create a schedule today. My long-term job ended a week ago, causing the first change in my schedule. Then I worked the NAIAS last week, and that REALLY changed my schedule. Lots of long hours made me not want to do much when I got... Read more

I finished my stint at the Auto Show. It was definitely a tiring job with long hours. But I did enjoy it. Now to start getting back to the grind of looking for work. It does have me a little nervous, but I'll be doing my best every day.... Read more
Yucky Day
Friday, January 21, 2011      2 comments

What Week Off?
Wednesday, January 19, 2011      3 comments

I had such high hopes of accomplishing so much of my to-do list this first week of not having a job. It doesn't seem to be working yet. I've scratched off a couple things, but added more than I have scratched off. Why is that?... Read more

Well, this was my 7th day of work - the last two days being very long. My muscles are all tense for some reason and I can't wait to go to bed. Just have to do dishes and wait for the laundry to finish.... Read more
