Now, this is a real crisis!

What the hell am I supposed to do now?

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!!
