Why So Quiet?

Well, 5 days after I wrote my last blog post I was laid off after only 5 weeks of employment.  Yes, that's correct.  Laid off for the second time in less than a year.  I am very actively looking for work but it seems worse this year than last even though the unemployment percentages have gone from just about 14% to 12.8%.

I have been doing some knitting and crochet.  I have pictures but have not taken them off the camera.  I have not felt like blogging.  I have been very unhappy.  If I do not find a job soon things are not going to be nice, not at all.  My unemployment runs out in January.  I have enough money saved to stay until after the payback date in March for the first time homebuyer's credit.  But if I do not have a job I will have to give my house back to the bank, sell as much as I can and have my brother come out here to help me drive my car back east and I will become a financial dependent, again, on my rapidly approaching 80 year old mother.  A very sad prospect.  So here's hoping I can find a permanent job that will pay my bills so I can stay here.  And keep blogging.

Life is hard when you're a single income who suddenly has no income.  And for a crafty penguin who likes to rant but has lost her spark, for the moment.  If you're so inclined, a prayer on my behalf would be appreciated.
