today i was supposed to go job hunting. as i am sure you can tell, i didn't. first,
the emce came to play this morning. i don't want to miss playing with emce. we
also talked about future things a bit. yes, it is early, but i was questioning
previous statements made. right now it is as it should be: we'll see when we get
there. and that works for me, especially since there is so much more for me to
work out emotionally anyway. so we spent the morning together, then he had to
return the truck he borrowed to get here and i sat down to try to figure out my
this is going to be a real trick.
on my resume i have brief sketches of my previous employment up to 1998. yes i
worked before that, but didn't work for almost 10 years so not only is it not
like it counts or anything, but like i could even BEGIN to remember that. worse
yet, i find i can't even begin to remember back to 1998! so i decide to rummage
around and see what i can find.
one is on the net still even though at last word it was closed. heck, it gives
me all the info for my short term employment there. the next i email my university
councilor about...he forwards to the appropriate person. so waiting on a reply.
which leaves one other job and i have not much of a clue.
three jobs since 1998, none of them long term. oh this is going to be good...NOT.
so i printed out copies of my resume and as soon as i get the info on job number
2 i can go apply and submit the resumes. of course, most employers will look at
what i was earning and think they can't pay me enough, when right now i will take
just about anything. still, i have to try...the situation is getting pretty desperate
here. so i will await the arrival of the info for job 2 and with a slightly less
spotty job and resume in hand, go job hunting later this week.
on the better news front, i got a delay on the electric bill that's threatening
to be shut off. of course, i still won't have all the money, but it gives me time
to try to find some. dr pepper has offered to help and pay half. i'd have almost
all the other half except we have to eat. if anybody has that rich uncle they
can spare...i really could use him now. as for the rest? well, i am going to write
the credit cards and explain the situation. won't do anything but make them angry,
but at least i am letting them know why i haven't paid anything of recent. the
rest of the bills will be paid in small sums as i can.
and on the great news front, we're finally moving the kids child support accounts
of the d.a.'s system...THANK GOD! we have one of the worst child support collection
in the nation out here. why? because the d.a. loses checks. because they collect
the entire amount they are supposed to in one check, then split that up into 2
payments. they also seem to want to parent paying support to repay ALL welfare
that is put out on the kids. plus interest. plus interest on the interest. it
has been a nightmare for the kids' dad. no tax returns, threats of having his
drivers' license revoked, all kinds of crap. and this is a guy who actually PAYS
his support! monday i finally got to pay the declaration pulling the d.a. out
of the whole mess.... once they make sure he has paid all arrears child support
and all interest.
speaking of which...for some reason the d.a. had a hold on $90 for me. they don't
know why. so they are going to release it and send it to me. this is EXACTLY what
i need for "my" half of the aforementioned electric bill. wouldn't it
be nice if it came in by friday? knowing the d.a. though, i am not holding my
breath. blue is a good color on me, just not on my face.
