My job search gets more frustrating by the day. Last year when I was fired the week of Christmas it broke me. I was pregnant, it was the week of Christmas, and I didn’t know what to do. Thanks to lots of help from family, Christmas turned out great. But, never did I think that in a year I would still be looking for a job. Granted, I haven’t really been looking too hard for the entire year, seeing as how I was pregnant and all. But, here lately I have really stepped it up because I didn’t want this Christmas to suck. I waste my time sneding out all these emails to ads on craigslist only to get an automated response leading me to a website that tries to get me to further my education, etc, etc. It’s so frustrating! What makes it more frustrating is when I get motivated to get online and search for jobs and Lexi decides that’s the time to throw a major fit!
I guess she got spoiled this weekend at the grandparent’s house…being held practically all the time, her every need was catered to immediately. Well, we’re back to reality now, where it’s just me and her at home, and when she gets hungry, she has to wait for me to make the bottle. When she needs something while I’m busy doing something else, she’s going to have to wait. Well, this isn’t going over too well. She has decided that when she needs something she needs it NOW! What really pisses her off is if I walk by her without acknowledging the fact that she’s screaming…oh boy does that bring on a whole new level of fit-throwing!
Back to the job thing…I’m getting less and less hopeful by the day that I will have a job before Christmas. And even if I do get a job before Christmas I probably won’t work long enough to get a decent paycheck in time to buy anything with it. UGH!
I was given permission to use our walmart credit card to buy gifts. And by gosh I’m doing a pretty good job! Nieces and nephews are all taken care of as of yesterday! It felt so good to cross 7 people off my list at one time! However, due to budgeting I won’t have more money to spend until Dec. 11. Hopefully I’ll be able to find the rest of the stuff I need in the store because I don’t think that will give enough time for the stuff to ship! Which reminds me that I need to go to walmart to pick up some things that I had shipped site to store.
Speaking of shopping, I need to go to the store to get ingredients for the desserts I’m making for Thanksgiving. We are going to Jacob’s family Thanksgiving this year since we went to mine last year. We will be going to mine afterwards…not sure how many people will still be there, but it’s at my parents’ house so we’ll get to see them at least.
