Valley City

My memories are skewed.  I know that.  I have so many memories floating around in my head, which are either completely wrong or kinda wrong.  The knowledge that they may be wrong doesn’t tarnish them at all for me. I grew up in Valley City.  It was a tiny, insignificant town in North Dakota.  I …

Dreamin’

With this job search, I’ve started dreaming.  A couple of the jobs for which I’ve applied offered more money than I’ve ever had.  By a lot. What would I do if I had more money? Obviously, it depends on how much more money.  Here are just some ideas: I’d pay off my credit cards.  Duh.  …

Feeling Blessed

I got some potentially good news this morning.  It might, actually be nothing at all.  It was the fact that I received the news which made my day. Diane is my gal.  She’s fighting for me.  She works at an employment agency and she’s doing all she can to find me the right job (at …

New Music!

I blogged before about becoming annoyed with Top 40.  It is filled with songs which are all variations on a handful of songs.  There’s the upbeat song all about drinking, partying, and having fun no matter what the cost.  There’s the song that is mostly rap, but with someone coming in and singing the chorus …

Boring is in the Eye of the Beholder

Oh my goodness!  So, I’m reading this book and I find myself skimming through entire pages.  Last night, it was two pages.  Granted, I was really tired last night, but I still shouldn’t feel the need to skim any pages.  I should be glued to every single word. Why am I skimming?  Because I couldn’t …

Nope

Well, I just called the lady at the placement agency who’s been trying to help me find a job.  She said that the man with whom I interviewed yesterday “decided not to move forward” with me. Darnit! The reason he gave?  Because my interview skills aren’t very good.  He said my attitude was great and …

So Tired

I was thinking about it earlier, feeling all sorry for myself, thinking that I’ve never been this tired in my entire life.  That’s so not true.  I have been this tired before.  I remember it through a haze of exhaustion.  It was when my second child was born.  I had this beautiful new baby to …

Waiting…

So, I’m a jerk.  Last week, I blogged that I was sure I was going to get laid off that day.  And then I didn’t tell you whether or not it happened. Drum roll… It didn’t happen.  I’m still waiting for the shoe to drop.  Every day I go to work, I wonder if today …
