So a couple of random thoughts, in no particular order.  Bulleted, of course.

  • I am not having any luck finding a job.  Well, actually, I got a job.  A really, really great job.  One that doesn't get plopped into your lap everyday.  High salary, profit sharing, 3 weeks vacation, five minute commute, etc.  BUT (isn't there always a but?), one of their major clients cancelled an order so they don't have the budget to hire me. It's not a total loss, but I can't rely on it coming through.
  • I am having a really hard time dealing with my mom/family (Strong blonde, Amanda - I know you can relate).  It is such a long story, and I want to share it, but don't have the energy to type it out.  It feels like I am reliving it.  I am SO close to cutting all ties with my mom and, consequently, my dad.
  • I have ordered a new computer so that I can blog at home! and oh, yeah-look for a job too! I wanted to buy this one (my work computer) but my dad asked me for 400 dollars for it.  UM, I got a new one for 450 (including tax and delivery).  (this is a small piece of the very huge drama pie)  Still, I am so excited for my new computer!

Hey, I'm sorry that you're having such a hard time with your mom. I remember you and your dad being pretty close. Hugs.

I'm so sorry things are not going well. Sending prayers that the perfect job falls in your lap soon and all the family drama is over. I always tell my brother that I don't need his drama because if I want it that I'm perfectly capable of making my own. ;o)

ahhh mothers... I have no advice. I'm getting counseling soon and I hope that I can maybe get some help there. But I wish she'd go to counseling because she needs it more.

I hope you find a good job soon. Looking for work sucks.
