Things continue to be a bit dire only more so than during my last post. I've sent resumes, made phone calls, begged even.

I tried to pawn a few things-seems I'm not the only anachronism, lol, the guy at the pawn shop got a real laugh out of my attempt to get a few dollars from my five year old computer.

Sigh. I even emailed my son's friend to ask him if he would ask Fox to pay my storage room for a couple of months. That has not generated a reply, so I think I know where that is going...

Yesterday I sucked it up and snuck down to the unemployment office-a 40 mile round trip that yielded only more depression. I should know something in about four weeks. But I have to check in starting the 15th to assure them that I am looking for work.

Just every day since the 29th of September, but hey, that's life nowadays. It's so great to be 53 and completely alone. Jeeburs, I'll never catch up, will I??

So, Life just hasn't been all that swell for years and it doesn't look to be getting any better anytime soon, dammit.

One of the little hand-outs they gave me at the unemployment office cracked me right the hell up-"How To Tell If You Are Stressed About Being Unemployed". Really.

Well, if anyone is reading this, keep a good thought for those of us looking to restart our lives.
