So... job hunting is not on my happy list at the moment :/
I had an interview with a temp agency on Tuesday. I think it went pretty well, but I called this morning and they still don't have anything for me. I'm probably going to get in with two or three agencies and "play the field" in a way. I'm also considering more and more doing something like working at the commissary part time (like on the weekends, or in the evenings) in addition to doing the temp thing. It would just be nice to have some sort of reliable income, even if it's not making very much.
Mostly I'm just coming to that point that I really need to start getting some cash to put into the bank, you know?
Anyway... I've been spending quite a bit of spare time working on the curtains for the living room. After searching and deciding, and realizing that we can't afford the ones we love (there are four windows in the living room, so we need eight panels. that means even curtains that are fairly inexpensive ($10 a panel) still add up really fast.) I finally bought four super inexpensive "window sets" from Target. Now I'm adding liners (fabric I already had) and some details. I'll be showing pics when they're done :)
Other than that I'm getting used to cooking and shopping for two again as well as cleaning up after a boy (the hubby has that really special boy gene that renders him unable to pick up after himself sometimes ;))
Moving on... I think that's all I really have... I know I keep promising pictures, and they'll come... just as soon as our house remembers what organized looks like. So... until then, have a happy day!

Job hunting DOES bite the big one.... Signing up several places is a wise idea... And KEEP calling them... the squeeky wheel gets the lube!

Julie said...

aww, I hope the job hunting is successful--at least you won't have to work somewhere that smells like wet, mildewed paper (hopefully! :D). I'm excited to see the product of all your decorating creativity!! Love you! -jms-

praying for you!!!
Might I suggest working at the Bucks? I worked there for over 5 years, and loved it. They were SUPER flexible with scheduling too!
Cannot wait to see pics of the new pad...hoping your settling in is going well!
Take care friend!
