So busy (and sniffly)

Sorry for that I haven't posted more often over the past few days. Given my lack of employment, one would think I'd have tons of time to post to my blog. Actually, that hasn't been the case.

I'd like to say that I'd been spending all of this time looking for a job, but there's only so much one can do. I've e-mailed my resume, in response to some ads I saw, I contacted some headhunters I know, and I've let colleagues know that I need a job. After that, there's just so much I can do. I can't walk the streets looking for a job--you'll never see "HR Director [or employment lawyer] wanted" in a store window. So I'm doing what I can, but that doesn't fill the days.

I have had plenty to do with the house, though, and Marc and I both have nasty colds. So all of this has filled my days. We had a bit of a disaster in the laundry room of the new house, but I'm not going to tell you about that because Marc is preparing a post on it (and he'll kill me if I steal his material--okay, he won't kill me, but he'll withhold sex and that's almost as bad). The disaster was resolved, but it was rather harrowing, especially in our lovely new home!

Tonight, Marc and I will sniffle our way through his credit union's annual dinner. We're barely well enough to make it, but we're going. He's senior management, so he will go unless he's very ill. I go along to be the good spouse (yes, everyone there knows I'm his partner), as well as serving as their photographer. I rarely get anything for this, but it helps Marc (and looks good for him, too, since they know their wonderful photos come to them as a result of Marc's partner).

That's the update from here. Relatively boring, but, hey, that's life sometimes. I hope everyone else is having a wonderful (and illness-free!) weekend.

Yeah, there's only so much you can do then you'll need patientience. I really hope you get a new job soon.

Awww. Sorry I haven't commented in awhile. I've been reading but I've been too busy cleaning up puke to comment. ;-)

And I just have to say, I am SICK, SICK, SICK, of my friends dealing with unemployment. It stresses me out so much! Why can't we just all be Ladies Who Lunch like me?

Thanks for the good thoughts, on both fronts, everyone. I appreciate it.

TG: If I could figure out how to manage my finances successfully without working, I'd be glad to do it. :)
