I know I should post something here, but all I have is whining and complaining and depressing stuff, and nobody wants to hear that on a Friday. I had a rotten day. And it's Friday! And I got off early! How can that add up to a rotten day? It's the same story, different day. The first of the month is rolling around. All the bills are coming in. Bills that we can't pay. Sometimes I just get scared and freak out because we really can't pay most of these bills right now. Today is one of those days. We're living on practically nothing. I am beginning to think we might have to let my health insurance go. I know, I know, I have kidney disease and we need that insurance. But I can't pay it and I can't ask my family to keep helping us. I just can't. I honestly didn't think it would take me this long to find a job. I thought I would be a month into my ninety day trial period by now. I have applied for over forty jobs. I have only gone on three interviews. Out of forty jobs. One of them I didn't get and I'm still waiting to hear back from the other two. I apply for jobs every single day. I am frustrated and discouraged and scared. I got a ticket today because my car registration is overdue. And there is a crack in my window that needs to be fixed. I got fix it tickets for both. I have never in my life gotten a ticket. Ever. Well, I think I may have gotten a parking ticket once, but that 's it. I have never been pulled over before. It sucked. I cried. Nice. I have until September to pay the registration and get the window fixed. That's going to cost about $500 total. I can't even think about it right now. I think I'll stop now, before I bring all of you down with me. At least it's Friday. That doesn't suck.

Have you thought about temping? You could sign up with a couple agencies, and go from there! I realize you have to be very flexible, BUT, maybe you could find a dream job. I know a lot of places use temp agencies as a "hiring" process.

Do not let your health insurance go. Do not do not do not.

Trust me, my DH works with the uninsured, NOT a place you want to be. You will need a lot less help from your family now than you will if you let your insurance lapse and have another health crisis.

Something is bound to turn up on the job front. I like Stacey`s idea of temping. It is a great way to have money coming in for now, it is a great way to network, it is a great way to gain some new experience. It is a great way to help you figure out what you might want and more important do not want to do.

Hang in there, things are bound to get better.
