June 6 - Got the Job!
Monday, June 06, 2011      8 comments

Still not sure I want it but at this point, I don't have a lot of choice. Come July, I would have been unemployed two years and there are few choices out there, so I start next Monday - on the 13th. I work late at Target all that week, so I a... Read more
June 5 - Exercise
Sunday, June 05, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday, I mowed the front yard, cleaned litter pans, swept front porch, vacuumed, did dishes, swept and mopped floors, cleaned counter tops, did laundry, cleaned cat bowls and fish bowls, dusted, cleaned glass tops and worked some on my offic... Read more
June 4 - Mistake
Saturday, June 04, 2011      4 comments

My boss wrote down the new hours for me this week when I took on another shift but forgot to put it into the system. As a result, work thinks I went in half an hour late. They weren't mad as I've never, in five years, been late before. But I ... Read more
June 3 - Interview
Friday, June 03, 2011      5 comments

Interesting interview today. Turns out, the attorney was looking more for a paralegal, so I figure that's that, and had planned on asking him to forward my name to anyone he knew looking for a clerical position - receptionist, office manager, ... Read more
May 31 - Possible Job
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      5 comments

A couple of months ago, I had trouble finding jobs to apply to in order to adhere to the unemployment requirements. One attorney's office was just one mile from my house, though it was a very small office, and I had sent him a resume along with... Read more
May 28 - Progress
Saturday, May 28, 2011      4 comments

I'm within one pound of reaching my next goal, and am very excited about it! I'm so glad I went back to the Hilton Head diet. I've always had such good success with it and the variety makes it easy to stick with it. Because of the weight ... Read more
May 25 - Fallen Tree
Thursday, May 26, 2011      0 comments

Had the insurance company come out today while I was at work and via e-mail, they told me they could not insure my house until I got the tree out of there. Seriously?? What does that have to do with anything? Maybe someone in insurance can ex... Read more
May 24 - Why are Collection Agencies so Stupid?
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      3 comments

Seriously - did common sense leap from the window the minute someone became a collection agent???? You tell them you have the authority to talk to them via your parent, which was done in writing and verbal more than three times AND over two ye... Read more
May 23 - Pleased
Monday, May 23, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday, I got off work around 5:30 - the earliest I'll get off this week - and after feeding cats, playing with dogs and cleaning litter pans, I immediately swept out part of garage and mowed the front and side yard. And just in time as rain... Read more
May 22 - Work
Monday, May 23, 2011      0 comments

Put in eight hours today and have a total of 38 hours this week. Next week, I actually have 40 hours! It's hard work to get a couple of hundred dollars but at least it will make my unemployment a little longer. Instead of running out in mid-J... Read more
May 20 - Crazy, crazy, crazy!
Friday, May 20, 2011      4 comments

So for my three days off, I've done nothing but run everywhere or work around the house like a mad woman!! What a week this has been, with my son in ER Sunday, working till 10 pm Monday & Tuesday, running errands all over the place Wednesday, w... Read more
May 19 - Job Fair
Friday, May 20, 2011      5 comments

Today was my mother's 89th birthday, but since I had a job fair to attend, I visited with her yesterday and gave her birthday gift to her then. Honestly, the job fair seemed like a waste of time. I literally stood in three separate lin... Read more
May 18 - ER Visit
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      6 comments

Sunday, while at work, my son accidentally splashed chemicals in one of his eyes. He thought the jug had a safety cap and didn't realize that wasn't the case. This all happened after hours so by the time he got to the ER, saw the doctor and t... Read more
May 15 - Found gifts
Sunday, May 15, 2011      4 comments

I had a scathingly brilliant idea! LOL I decided to use "gardening" as my theme (which makes sense, considering it will be June for my Bunco), and was able to get all my gifts at Target today after work. Lots of neat yard work gizmos - like... Read more
May 13 - Bunco
Saturday, May 14, 2011      1 comments

So I didn't win anything at Bunco tonight but that's okay - I think the ones who did win needed the items (or gifts) more than I could have used them. (I was hoping to win the split pot but maybe next time.) I have the next Bunco (in June... Read more
