Stress is Less than FunThu, July 10, 2008 - 11:00 AM
I thought being employed at a job I despised was stressful. I'm finding unemployment even more stressful, paycheck whore that I've become.
Finding a job in social services at this time of cutbacks and restructuring has been frustrating. I'll keep trying and hope that someone, somewhere will hire this old woman. Hopefully soon. I need the bucks to support my grocery and bill habit.
On a totally unrelated topic, anybody want a kitten? A stray mom cat had her kittens in front of our house back in April. They're more than ready to go to new homes, but with the massive kitten and cat overpopulation we have in the Central Valley, it's hard to find good homes for the little ones. My oldest daughter took in one of the males, but we have two males and one female left. And what's even more confounding is that mom cat appears to be in heat again. Yipes, I need to make an appt. for her to be spayed, asap.
I've included a pic of the babies. Seriously, if any of my out-of-town friends want a kitten, my sister and I are ready to take a road trip. We'll travel far to get good homes for some very sweet kitties.
On a lighter note, faire season is approaching. I'm excited about seeing all my St. Luke's buddies and other faire friends. There's much sewing to do and I need to get busy.

It's good to hear from you!Im sorry about the employment woes. That can be grueling, I know!
But you know you are better off not there anymore - I don't have to tell you that. Something will turn up and it will be better.
Maybe there is a related field that is more condusive to openings, that you might be interested in?
Although I (and Alisa!) would love a kitty, the ubby won't go for it. I will ask for the heck of it though. And I would meet you half-way. It's quite a trip to Hayward from where you are!
I owe you an email reply too. I'll set to that soon, I promise.
Miss you. Love you.
