Sense of Urgency

Side Trip to Tiny Town Produce (beware, I have learned to send my cell phone pictures to my e-mail then save them! Little crooked, but I like it. Over exposed but it was a very bright afternoon.)

I hear this question from my husband quite often over the past two years, "What do you do all day?"

If I were the honest type I would tell him this....I make coffee then sit in front of the computer for several hours. Sometimes I will attempt the crossword puzzle only if it is Monday because they tend to be easier on Monday, then I will do the SUDOKU puzzle, then I will read the paper, then I will think about what I should be doing, i.e. looking for a job, so I get back on the computer and peruse Career Builder, then I slip over to Bloglines and then I will go to Craigslist. Then I will be startled to see it is closing in on noon and I have yet to brush my teeth. Then I will brush the teeth, wash the face think about taking a shower, but now I have no time and I go to Walmart, ALDI, maybe take a side trip somewhere like Goodwill to see if anything is interesting there, then I will cruise by the Dollar Movie theatre and see if anything good is showing and plan to see it sometime during the week, then I go home, check the computer to see if I have any job offers or interest piqued from the resumes I sent out earlier, I check the snail mail, send out bill payments and maybe a card or two to my mother and others, then I relax and maybe read something from the novel/travel book I am currently reading...blah blah blah. It's a busy day!

Sometimes I do take a shower.

Thanks for making my day seem normal. Right now I try to avoid the question.

Sigh. The job market (or lack thereof) is depressing me. :(

What the heck do they expect us to do with all that time on our hands. (Hugs)Indigo

Sounds like a perfect day to me! And at the end of a day like that, you can sit back and think to yourself, damn, what a busy, fun filled day of non-defineable activities.

I hear that question a lot too and my day is pretty much like yours. I feel rather normal now.

Good luck on the job front.

WE have all been there. This was me just two years ago as I tried desperately to make it as a real estate agent. Even my close friends used other agents and I felt rejected. I finally found a job that has paid bills and given me good medical bens. Keep looking. Is there a place for customer service work? you would be a natural.

I'm getting to have fun with my first camera phone too, lately. You get a lot more of the "opportunity" shots.
