My husband is actually working more, although not bringing in quite as much extra as we'd like. This means I'm spending loads more time alone with the kids, which is fun and exhausting. It makes me wonder, though, what we'll do when I do get a job. Did you notice what was missing from that list above. Besides blogging, which I am having a harder time with than I expected, it's the whole job search thing.
My mom is sure I'll get tired of being at home. That the reason I attempted to throw a huge passover dinner was because I was trying to fill up my time. Want to hear the truth? Five and six year old boys are fun. If I had two screaming babies, which I have in the past, I would probably be dying to go back to work, which I have. The thing is, I really have to go back to work, and the sooner I get a job, the higher chance we can actually pay off some bills and have the savings in case this happens again, without the severance.
I really do not enjoy looking for a job, modifying my resume, networking, researching companies and writing cover letters. Ugh. So without further ado I've listed my top excuses for not looking for a job.
- I'm on my own, with dad gone for a week in Dallas, no way.
- It's spring break.
- It's way too fricken hot.
- I need to get with the twitter thing, that can only increase my "social marketing" experience, right?
- The battery in my computer is dead.
- I should really skip that coffee shop latte and go home to work.
- As long as I'm home, this place really needs some tidying up.
- I can't blow off my little boy again, he just wants to play one game of Clue.
- Now I've had a glass of wine, won't be very productive.
- Wii Fit and Reginald Hill, not to mention catching up on movies
- I deserve this time off, barring maternity leave, it's this first time in nearly 20 years.
