Unemployed?

    Anyone else unemployed?

    I got fired last November and haven't been able to get a job since. [​IMG]

    I had a steady job for forever, so being bored all the time is so weird. I don't know what to do with myself. It's strange because I have all this time and absolutely no motivation. I should have the cleanest house in the world, but I don't.

    I chose to be a stay at home mom with our son, now 7 months. Prior to that I was an honor roll senior at a state university and working for the school newspaper (really, a full time but under paid job) before, I was working full-time as a manager of a radio station's office. I am so used to be "GO-GO-GO" all the time that the slow down was a huge shock. I totally relate Tala's sentiment about the house-I rarely do housework. I mean, who is going to see it, and I can *always* do it later, right?[​IMG]

    EDIT: I just want to add in here that I really feel for all of you who have lost your jobs, and that I am praying for you.

    Me, too!

    I got canned in January and am in a battle over unemployment. I live in a town with 30K college students who will take a job for beans, so no work here.

    I'm hating the depression that comes from a loss of identity- I logically know I'm not what I do, but emotionally I'm not absorbing that info.

    My house is shovel-worthy at this point. A total pit.

    God blessings the man still loves and supports me, but I made more money and we're hurting!

    I went through the "depression " stage for longer than I'd like to admit . It seemed as if no golden horizon was in sight ...so I slept all day.....did NOTHING . I finally realized that my JOB is the house now . I can't keep it a mess , because DH won't clean the toilets , scrub the floor , or anything else besides the kitchen . Look at it as dreading going to your usual job....except it's YOUR house . You bought it , or are renting it . I always panic when people call to say they're coming over last minute....I don't want them seeing a filthy conjested mess ! It's hard to clean up when it's a 2000 sq ft house in the country with lime green and 60's phsycadellic carpet , and wood stove heated ! Even if you get up late.....get your mind in order that it's your job now ! It helped me .[​IMG]
