Calgon Take Me Away

I have been stressing these past few weeks hence the lack of posts...please forgive me. I just didn't want to blog about what so many people are facing right now.

I am collecting unemployment for the first time in my entire working career (16 years) and it's going to be rough for a while. On the bright side we did sell our house on a short sale so now we are left with the uncertainty "now where do we live?"

We have been wanting to move to Colorado for a long time now and it seems the best time is now. I am currently not working and Zman will be out of school soon so now may be the best time. I have heard that Colorado is doing a lot better than Florida during these hard economic times and the crime here in Florida has gotten out of hand. It is no longer a great place to raise kids.

I have been applying for jobs in Colorado as well as Florida but really hoping to get a job in Colorado. It's difficult applying in another state as you are most likely looked over for someone who already lives there. If anyone reading this blog knows someone in Colorado looking for a hard working, organized individual...hook a sista up!

In the meantime I am going to keep taking baths to help relax me...(and have a couple of Bacardi and Diet Cokes)now excuse me while I find me some Calgon.

I wish you all the best in your job hunt, and possibly a new home hunt, too. Don't worry about collecting unemployment...you've paid in all these years so it's time for you to be paid back for awhile. You'll be back in the donating category in no time!

Gwen said...

I'm praying for you. I know you'll find something soon and that will be your sign of where to go next. But you really need to look in KC and come live by me!!!! {HUGS}

You could always stop by Mississippi when traveling from Fl to Col ... if for nothing else to let our 2 Brutus Bulldogs meet! No, seriously good luck with you job search -- I have no doubt you will find one.

OOh - Colorado sounds fun to me!! How exciting the opportunity to move to another state! It does sound like to perfect time to relocate...and even in the times we are faced with - that is truly exciting. I wish you the best of luck!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Wow! Well, I wish you luck. I got a job in FL within 2 weeks of moving here from NY because I had a date when I would arrive & was straight forward about that in my cover letters. So, it helps for them to know that you WILL be there in a matter of time. Good luck!!!!

Oh my god, you're really thinking about moving to Colorado.. I know you've wanted to move there by reading your previous posts, but gosh, it's becoming a reality.

Now, I think I really need to plan a playdate. I won't let you go away without seeing each other..

Love you!
