Well, folks, I might have the blues. And NOT because school is starting up again soon. *sigh* Nah, that fact makes me ever so happy. :) I debated back and forth on whether mentioning this fact on my blog before because I don't want you all to feel bad for me but on the other hand, I need some support right now.
I feel like I'm hanging by a thread most days.
So here's the news. My husband has been looking for some full-time employment for a while.
He actually made some pretty good money in July. BUT it was temporary work. Jobs go away when the work goes away. My husband has worked with the Census, done yard work, and some HVAC work on the side to make ends meet.
He is a hard worker.
I'm just not sure how long I can take this *no money* thing.
*sigh* Two days ago I had it. I didn't want to eat, I fed my girls snacks and such when they were hungry but I didn't prepare much. I didn't receive much in my email because I didn't blog OR even comment on other blogs. I realized later I must have been depressed.
Things will pick up I know. They usually do. My husband has sent in his resume to several companies so far and we'll be okay. Somehow.
The thing is, most of the jobs are NOT here. They are up north. My husband has tried finding jobs here. (He actually has one application in. The hotels here in town have some positions open.)
But mainly, the good-paying ones are further north.
I don't want to move.
But I want to support my husband.
And I want money. I want to be able to buy my 11 year old some clothes for Back to School without worrying how the electric is going to get paid this month. (Grandma bought some clothes for her. She won't be going to school naked. It's okay. LOL. Thanks for your concern.)
Do you want to know how I make each day?
The Lord. I rely on the Lord to get me through each day.
I am so grateful for prayer and the strength I get when I pray.
I also rely on the friends I have made along the way. Through blogging and twitter.
Thanks. I think we are going to make it.
-- Official End of post--
P.S. I'm still here though. I'm just not "feeling" it some days. I want this all to go away very soon.
P.P.S. I'm still writing at Helium. And I submitted some of my writing to the local paper.
P.P.P.S. I even applied for a job up North--(Utah) for a Publishing Coordinator position. It is a publishing company that is looking for somebody to help market their new authors and such. I could totally do that. And the best part about that is the hours are flexible and part-time. I can still be a mom too. Because as frustrating and hectic as it is most days, I wouldn't trade my motherhood days for anything.
So that's the news.
Next time I blog I'll be funny okay.
I might even vlog.
But I had to spit my "feelings" out today.
Thanks for listening.
And as always, I love you guys! I still think I have the BEST blog followers around!
Stay tuned for some GOOD news soon! It is right around the corner, I can smell it already.
(Good news might smell like chocolate. It also might smell like money too. Mmm. That's what I am talking about, Right?)
