The thing is my head has been wrapped around doing our taxes and then a new budget and that inevitably led to rewriting my resume and searching for another job.
So the writing of the blog has been on the back burner a bit.
The good news is...
The taxes are done.
The kind of sucky news is...
My best hope at the moment is to work at the grocery store. Don't get me wrong, I love my grocery store. I mean it. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. But, I have a college degree and somehow that makes me feel as if I should be doing something other than being a cashier with all the college students and high school kids. Bad attitude? Maybe. But at this point I really would be thrilled to work there. Besides, they're rated #2 of the best places to work in the country. So? I could do worse.
I was trying to put together a resume for the grocery store job and another job (that I do not need a college education for) and I realized I have had a LOT of jobs in my life. In fact, for fun (or OCD, or obsession - whatever) I put together a list of all the jobs I've had. No babysitting type things or jobs held for less than three months - and yes, there have been some of those. The list? It is LONG. 18 JOBS. EIGHTEEN! In the last 21 years. GAH! Granted, not all earned me money. And 6 of them (these last 8 years) have overlapped. And no, I did not list motherhood even though that is the most time-consuming, energy-sucking of all the jobs.
The other thing I noticed is most of the job changes were because I moved. Not down the street but to other states or regions. Out of commuting distance. At least my future employers do not need to worry about that happening.
So to sum up...
I am rambling. It is late. I must go to bed. Oh, and I'm hoping someone will hire me soon because my blogging is really suffering with all the worry and whatnot.
