I am so sick of looking for a job. And it's not like I'm not trying, either. I search all the internet job postings at least twice a day and apply to everything that I'm even remotely qualified for: everything from retail to receptionists to unnamed office jobs to food service to healthcare. I've only had 2 callbacks, and nothing came out of either one. This boggles my mind. I mean, I'm smart, professional, and the hardest worker they'll ever find, but nothing. We've gone out to pound the pavement for the downtown business that don't have websites, and none of them are hiring until "maybe next month."

I really hate jobs that require me to pay for a credit check. Maybe I have no money & bad credit BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A JOB! Ever think of that?

We finished painting our house, but that doesn't matter if we can't pay the rent there anyway.


That about sums it up.

Expand your search beyond the usual places (think places that like tattoos) Auto parts supply stores, repair shops, bike shops, chopper shops, anything NASCAR including race tracks, owner shops, etc, etc.

times are tuff right now but if you keep at it you’ll do fine I am sure.

BTW: the best way to get rid of the rest of the fleas is to get a garden sprayer and fill it with diluted flea killer liquid. Spray everything fabric chairs, carpets, and anything they can live and breed in. Also spray any place pets like to lay down. That is the only way to get rid of fleas, kill every last one of them. repeat spray daily or as needed until they are gone.

Thanks Arlene. I am literally applying EVERYWHERE. I'm not being picky. (Shoot, I used to work for a custom car shop, I can do auto parts stores!)

And the new house is all hardwood floors, no carpet anywhere, and it is empty. We haven't moved our stuff over yet. I don't know where they're even living.

I am sorry about the job thing, that sucks. We are hardwood floors throughout and get fleas too, so I will be waiting with baited breath.

I'll post a proper update on the house soon. I just needed to vent today. :P
