Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Here I Go Again ...

Here I Go Again ...


 So Friday ... I'll start from the beginning of the morning since all the "fun" started early. 6:30 am could not go back to sleep thanks to the upstairs neighbors making loud noises. They make a lot of noise most of the time it's very annoying. 8am start to attempt submitting of online application. Thank you Village of X for not knowing how to make out a fillable PDF that's great. Of course the lines are never big enough. 11am finally get application submitted after scanning documents three times and attempting to make PDFs three times. It was a big mess but it's in and hopefully I'll get an interview. 

 1:30pm Kevin walks in the door ... ummm what? Did he leave something that he needed. He says there is only one reason I'd be home right now and it dawns on me and I just start completely bawling my eyes out.

 Kevin lost his job Friday. 

 It's not because he sucked at his job or anything like that ... in fact he was really really good at his job and his boss was so upset about having to let him go we found our he broke down after Kevin left. They just couldn't afford to keep him with so little projects for this next year. So there I am in the middle of our living room bawling my freaking eyes out with so many thoughts just running through my head. This is not our first rodeo, we've been through this before.
 For most of 2011 Kevin was trying to find permanent work and ended up working a couple positions for a few months but the same thing they didn't end up having the money. Why they hired him in the first place if they knew they didn't have the money I don't get but whatever. So here we go again, Kevin unemployed I'm still under employed but this time it's more difficult since we're actually married and living under the same roof. He is not sitting down though, Friday unemployment was filed and he sent in 9 applications over the weekend. 

 Unfortunately this means cutting back and we know how much I love shopping (even if it's super cheap I gotta cut back!). This also means I can't end up sponsoring more of you lovelies like I wanted to this spring. For now that means I will just have to stalk every ad space giveaway and free ad space everyone is doing like a fat kid who smells cake (or ice cream in my case!) 

 "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake is one of my all time favorite songs and at the start of the song it's kinda sad cause you're still searching for an answer and can't ever seem to find what you're looking for. When the big drum crash and guitar part happens though it's such a "I'm going to do it and you can't stop me world!". It always gets me going and the best part of it is I don't have to walk down the road by myself. 

 Not only do we have our friends and family here but I have all of you guys and have already felt the love : )

  1. I'm keeping y'all in my thoughts. I'm very under employed at the moment, so I'm living at home with my dad (not exactly fun). But, I'm busting my butt to pay off some debt (pesky student loans) and looking for a better job.

    Good luck to both of you!

  6. Aw I'm so sorry to hear your huband lost his job. M husband went through that every summer (he's a tecaher) but this year he got a verbal offer to come back to the same school next year, so all the summer of unemployment were worth it. Hang in there and I know how hard/ tough it is to not shop..I'm dying here after 4 months of no-spending
