I was lucky enough to be able to stay home with my newborn baby when he was born. Five years later and here I am. I'm doing what some people would probaly think is the greatest thing on earth. I get six hours of ME time.
Both of my kids are now in school and I have nothing to do.
Get a job right?
Well, no shit! I've been looking for the past month. I've sent out more than 20 resumes to companies who are hiring.
Is the job market that bad? I would like to think so, because what I'm really thinking is much much worse.
Am I too old? No, they don't know how old I am exactly, although if they look at the dates on my resume, I'm sure they could figure it out.
Not only does it show that I graduated high school the year the hiring manager was probably born. I also have a 5 year gap.
I wasn't sure if I should make a note on my resume stating why there is a gap. Just so they don't think I was in rehab mending a broken hip!
I bitch to Chris about how bad I want a job and he looks at me like I'm crazy and says.
"I wish I could sit home all day and do nothing!"
Here's a glimpse of what a normal day for me looks like...
|Sometimes I spice things up.. I watch TV in the bedroom instead of the living room.|
|Getting ready for my mid-morning nap by reading a little.|
Physical activity is very important! I have to keep my light saber skills fresh and new.
So there you go, that's my newest bullshit I'm dealing with now. I know boo-hoo for me. People are dying and starving, and I'm bitching about sitting home all day doing nothing.
Thanks for reading anyway. Missed you guys!!
