but, here I am, at home on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, combing the web for job postings and updating my resume.
Yes, I am a victim of the economic downturn.
I told Maddy, and bless her heart, she burst into tears and asked if we were going to lose the house and live in a cardboard box. I hugged her and replied, "well, I haven't thrown out the steam cleaner box, so that could be your room." She pulled back and shot me a look, then she laughed a little.
I'll be honest, I'm scared. I had an interview with a placement agency on Monday, and I'm waiting to hear from her. I have a couple more applications to send out, and I've applied for unemployment. I'm being proactive, which is all I can do. Oh, and pray.
I know I'll survive and I know I'll find something. This isn't the worse thing I've lived through.
