Ah! It hasn't been a year yet!
Still haven't gotten my first unemployment check, but I'm told it's on the way. Hope so...I went a paid rent yesterday. It's a weeks pay and will be gone as soon as they cash the check. It will be another 2 weeks before I get another. Groceries are low...2 more weeks before I can go to the food locker. They only open once a month here. We have plenty of staples like rice, pasta, beans and other canned goods. I'll have to have Emery buy some meat, milk and fresh fruit and veggies.
I've been looking everyday, numerous time a day to find work on line. Monster.com, EDD, Craigslist...places like that. Still no prospects. I've decided to go ahead and apply for a retraining class. Someone told me that Pel Grants will no longer be offered because of the state budget stuff. We'll see..
In the meanwhile, I get out in the field ministry as often as possible. It's calming. I really enjoy the conversations with people we meet. There are a lot out there who are also out of work.
I've decide I should cancel my gym membership. Really worried I'll put the weight back on, but I don't have a choice. I'll just have to be diligent. I have plenty of exercise DVDs, so I'll pull them out.
Well, more later. Time to clean.
