So the job search is not going all that well. My former employer gave me one last paycheck. I've filed for unemployment, next up.... Welfare. I apply for jobs all the time, but haven't heard back from anyone. The market is pretty flooded with applicants right now. I feel frustrated and unproductive. I haven't started to make any new jewelry and I think I'm sinking into a depression. I'm trying to think of things I've done that are productive to keep myself positive. Here's my list.
1. Planted a tree yesterday. It's a Navajo Globe Willow. It grows fairly rapidly and I'm hoping that someday it blocks the view of the two story house behind us. At night they can see right in our kitchen and we can see in to their bedroom. Eeeewwwww.
2. I cleaned our bedroom. This may seem like not a big deal, but our room is where we throw everything. It looks like a bedroom now and not a storage closet. It's pretty cool and much sexier!
3. I folded a mountain of clothing. I'm not shitting you. I was folding laundry all day. I am not a very good house wife. I don't like house work and I HATE folding laundry. I got it done though!
4. I've started tanning. Now I know this is not good for you. I put SPF 50 on my face and lay out in my back yard. Another reason to block the view of the people who live behind me. I don't want to scar anyone with the image of me in a bikini. My Midriff is scary. It looks a lot like a balloon that was over inflated then popped. My skin and pregnancy didn't mix well. I could deal with stretchmarks, but the sagging skin is a horror show. Wish I had better genetics in that area. By the way I think right now is the perfect time to start tanning in Albuquerque. I lay out 20 min. a side and have not burnt yet. In the summer, I'd be a lobster!
I feel this list is a bit short so I'll be working on cleaning and organizing the master bath and closet today.
A special Thanks to Boutique by Bonnie! She nominated me for the Kreative Blogger award. I'm not sure how creative I am but I really appreciate the nod! Check out her blog at...
I don't know how to pick up the award. I know. I'm lame. But I'm nominating 7 bloggers anyway. You might not be able to pick up your award form me from me but I think your Awesome! That's right. Capital A.
On a final note, I have a question. Is it bad that my breakfast is wheat thins and coffee?
