More stalling....and a fear of Staff infection....

Good evening!

I'm finding it difficult to blog these days, mostly because I feel like I'm boring! Yes...I still need to find myself a new job. No, I have not heard from the county about my test yet. I hope I did well, but the reality is that even if I did pass, there were 40+ other men and women who may have passed as well. I've been told those who do pass are ranked by how well they did, and then offered positions they come up.

I've emotionally worked myself up so much about getting another job, that I'm having a difficult time tackling it. My dear sister whom I love and I know loves me (Hi Jude!) comes over and shows me all of these places to apply and post my resume...etc. It so much easier when you're on the other side of it isn't it? I just want to hide under my covers! Why am I like this? No one is going to call me and say "Hi Kate, I have this position that I think would be perfect for you! Would you please do me a favor and come work for me??" Not reality! Just tv.......

I will say that I did sign up with and they've been sending me positions. One looked really good until I realized it was in Sausalito. Not gonna happen!

I tried to give myself a birthday present tonight by getting my 2nd hole in my left ear repierced. I let it heal years ago. Chris and I were in the Santa Rosa Plaza (I HATE that mall! Why does my son love it so much??) and I saw a jewelry store. Something triggered the desire to have this done, but none of the jewelry stores will do it. They kept telling me to go to some kiosk in the mall called the "Piercing Pagoda". How scary does that sound? I really don't want to contract an infection for my birthday! So, anyway, we tracked it down and I inquired about having it repierced, but the teenager manning the kiosk was not comfortable repiercing. Needless to say, I wasn't comfortable either. Anybody know where I can have it done safely? Do I really have to go to someplace like Claire's??

Hey Katy-
Just set yourself a goal of finding 2 or 3 a day to apply to. Then, once you start applying, you will discover that there are some days 10-12 that sound a bit interesting. What have you got to lose?
Hang in there, my friend. It will happen.
