*peers out from behind a rock* Ah, hello there. Um, knitting? This is a knitting blog, no? Ah...knitting. I think I remember what that is. Two pointy sticks, eh? And some fuzzy wuzzy string stuff? Ah, yes...it's coming back to me now.
Needless to say...I haven't knitted anything. I haven't even started my instant gratification Marian cowl yet. Or used any of the alpaca. You see, I am in a rut. And definitely hiding under rocks.
What I HAVE been doing is applying to jobs. Lots and lots of jobs. So far this week I've applied to 19 jobs. And so far, I have already received 2 You Suck emails. [You Suck emails = automated email from job that basically says you suck and we're going with another candidate] Pair that with the fact the ONLY phone calls I get for job interviews are scammers who found me on Monster [I have since taken my resume & phone number off of Monster]....let's just say, too much time spent being depressed and stressing and not picking up my yarn and needles. I also get to call the unemployment office this week to extend my benefits. Fun. Fun. Fun. Nothing like feeling small and unimportant than talking with the "nice" folk over at unemployment. Last time I spoke with someone I was told I was eligible for two more tiers....so I'm more nervous then stressed at the moment, but there is still the fear that they will be like "No, sorry, thanks! Have fun picking out your refrigerator box and might I recommend the area down by King's Park?"
