Low Point #1

Here I am, in my 3rd week of unemployment.

I've had exactly 3 contract firms call about jobs. Great you say, but all 3 called about the same job.

Which is lower than what I am was making. In looking at the jobs out there and what they are paying it looks like I will have to take a paycut of at least $5k if I want a job anytime soon.

The monotony of each day is killing me. I can't remember what day it is and I gotten to the point that I can't see any sense in showering or doing my hair daily.

I have cleaned and sorted through everything in our house which could be cleaned or sorted through. The house is too clean.

You can only walk the puppies and exercise so much everyday.


And to make matters even worse? I am having a huge flare-up with my arthritis and am in unspeakable pain.

I have groundhog day here often, without the benifit of the "uber-clean" house....

Groundhog Day is a hard one to get used to.

ACK - bummer. I'd say if you take one of the lower paying jobs - just keep looking after you start working for them.

*sigh* As AWTM said - been there - it's depressing in the extreme. That may even be causing your arthritis flare up. {{{HUGS}}} hang in there.

Hope your arthritis feels better!
And keep on plugging on the employment thing; something will come up soon!! :)

Prayers on the way, QW.

Sorry to hear that.

You may not be looking for a solution, but one thing that's worked for me in the past has been to create a job of finding a job. In other words, your new, 9-5 job is to find a job. You schedule and spend that entire time working to find a job and nothing else.
