Another week is done....

Another week has gone by. 11 weeks ago today I was laid off. I miss it. I miss having someplace to go 5 days a week, and getting a paycheck to boot. I really liked my job. I miss the people (well, some of them.) I would love just being a stay at home mom though, but its not feasible. When you are a single parent its usually not a good idea, at least since I'm not independanlty wealthy. I would do it in a heartbeat if I was. The schooling is like a job. I have an essay due in 2 days I haven't even started. If I wait till I am in the mood, it won't get done. Tomorrow is going to have to be the day. I still have a lot of algebra homework to do, and a test on Tuesday night to study for. I have been a slacker this week.
At least the house is clean. They (one guy) came and delivered the basket for the needy (meaning us) today. After he left I cried. Partially because it is nice to know there are people that care, and also because I don't want to be part of the "needy". I am 45 years old and want to be able to provide for me and my child. This is the first holiday season I have been unemployed since I was married, back in the 80's. I will always be stuck in nowhere jobs though if I don't try to better myself, so I am taking the opportunity that I have been given. Its not going to be easy though, but I hope I come through the end a lot better for the experience.
Remember to hug your loved ones, maybe call your mother, and say a prayer for the world and the people in it. You never know what someone is really going through. No one will probably ever read this blog, cos I am not telling anyone about it. I can't feel free to talk about anything if I feel I am being judged by those that know me. My boyfriend thinks I am a problem drinker since I have had 3 wine coolers in the last 13 months, and since I got pain pills for the surgery on my wrist a friend of mine keeps warning me about the dangers of getting addicted to them. I have taken maybe 6 in the last 8 days. I don't think that is going to be a problem. I think I am judged enought without intentionally giving my blog address out.
Peace, and God Bless.
