I left my last entry on a high note—with a temp job. Well right after I posted, I received a message that my temp position had been discontinued. I guess there’s a reason they’re called temp jobs!
I had an interview last Tuesday for another job—temp to hire this time—and I thought it went really well. But I haven’t heard back yet, so my non-positive guess is it’s a no go (I’ll keep you updated). But at the very least it was great interview practice!
We’ve spent our free time moving in with my husband’s brother and sister-in-law, contacting key people, getting the cat declawed, crunching numbers, researching, filling out applications, sending out resumes, looking apartments up online, looking at options…so many different options.
This is my third week of not running…at all! Of course, a week of that I was very sick. That marathon may need to be put on hold…
When my dad heard what we were up to, he called me with some advice. He suggested I apply for unemployment benefits. In the past I decided not to because I didn’t want to take taxpayers’ money, especially when I was capable of working. And I figured in this situation I wouldn’t qualify because I voluntarily resigned. He told me though, unless it was different because I was in a different state, I would qualify because my boss had not been paying me on time. Also, he said for a certain length of time, unemployment benefits are taken out of the employer’s contributions to unemployment, before it hits taxpayers’ dollars. I know he suggested this option because it’s a possibility, and he wants his “little girl” taken care off. But honestly, I don’t know what to think.
