Thanks everyone! Still no luck. I applied for unemployment though, and registered on their work program. Registered with Monster.com, Careerbuilder.com and jobs.com. Hopefully, something will come up soon.


My sister came back up here yesterday. She hasn't said one word!! She is the type that doesn't say sorry very often, but, you would think that since I'm her freakin sister, she would at least say SOMETHING!! I haven't said much to her unless she addresses me first. I'll get over it, we're not the ones that hold grudges, but, I'm hurt about it and I just don't want to talk to her for a little while.

I understand TG ... I'd be upset and want some distance too.

Well.. if you have to be out of work... spring is a good time for it.

You should be fully entitled for unemployment, I am sure you will get it. Then take full advantage of it, enjoy several months of paid holiday!! I have done it before, also in Texas, I was working at a place with a seasonal employment where laid off most of the employees for 4-5 months every year. I was going to enjoy the benefit but ironically I got hired after a few weeks so it was not to be...
And try not to stress over your sis... it is true that she could have been much more sensitive, but sometimes you encounter certain situations where you just need to shrug it off and soldier on, otherwise it will just eat you up... there are so many people around you who care (us included!!), focus on the positives and keep your smile on...I am sure things will work out for you in the end!!

Thanks ur!! I love your avatar. I haven't seen the second one, but, the first Ice Age, has become one of my favorite animated movies. I want to see Over the hedge too. Yes, I'm hijacking my own thread. LOL
