As I sit here watching the foodnetwork I am feeling very blah. This weekend was great, I got to see my parents and Monday there was NO time for “the Mundays.” I had an interview which I am really crossing my fingers went well. You know that feeling? You think it went great but there is nothing you can do to find out right away! The fact that I am really hoping I get this job doesn’t make searching for other jobs easy, because I don’t want any other jobs! I’m ready for the stars to align!
However, I would enjoy if my unemployment checks actually came on time. Last week I called the unemployment office, waited for about an hour on the phone, in order to talk to a live person and not some robot. The reason was that I needed to extend my benefits. It seemed like everything was set, I checked online later and saw that I had an extension. However when I filed this Sunday I was told by the robot that my benefits had expired. Not true. I figured I would give it the two days and see if the check showed up anyway, which it did not. I have now called and after waiting for about another half an hour should apparently be all set. But who knows.
Why does this process have to be so painful? I mean, government employees have got it made! I understand that with so many people on unemployment it must be super busy but how is it that every time I deal with this process it’s like throwing yourself against a wall?
I think it’s high time to get out of the house and enjoy this lovely Tuesday before the snow showers set in!
If nothing else, I plan on finishing my book by the end of this week.
What did you do?
