Slim Pickings

Whew! It’s really disheartening out there in the job market…especially in this area. I have never been so discouraged from a job as I was from the manager at Pat Catan’s. She is the hiring manager…..really?  If she represents the way this company thinks…then I would NOT recommend that you get anything framed in one of these store…yikes!

I tried to be proactive and send out some resumes and check on some applications………again I must ask how do you get fired? I think that I could get from unemployment what these companies are paying to start. It’s a sad, sad world out there. Still not sure what I am going to do.

I am trying to at least take action. I did super smudge myself and this house. I can’t think of a time when I needed the protective properties of sage more than I do now.  I would fight if I thought the cause was worth it, but it’s not. I guess I can only wait and see what unfolds next.

I did can a kick ass chocolate raspberry sauce courtesy of Pasta Princess. It was to die for…I can’t wait for someone else to sample this one!

I didn’t apply to as many places as I thought I would…everything is online now and takes forever to process one application. It’s a topsy turvy world out there…for sure! The only option I have is to keep trying.

I physically had anxiety at the thought of going back to work tomorrow. I know that what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger…but I am tired of being strong… sad is that? I just can’t do it anymore and very few people understand that. I despise weakness…especially in myself, but this is just too much. Nobody deserves what is happening now, and I don’t know how to get out. I just don’t know what to do, and I hate that too!

I should have know something extra was up about a month ago when I started driving around with Simon and Garfunkel’s greatest hits.  My mom always played this over and over when she was on her final straw, I guess I do it to. She never sang it though, I sing it with everything that I have, I guess that’s my twist on it. I love the way they use words with music…it truly is a gift.


Here’s to hoping I survive Monday………Zia
