Short attention span.

Nope, it hasn't died yet. I am just getting around to venting!!!!

I went to write out my check for my rent last night(the only bill I pay by check anymore), and guess what, I didn't have any checks!!! Nothing ever runs smooth for me! I had to drive down to the bank today to withdraw the money, money orders are now $5.00. So I just got cash. Now that I am unemployed I think I will probably keep this thread alive all by myself.

Not a big vent, just releasing a little frustration. I saw on the news that a new company will be opening nearby. I looked it up immediately (as a job possibility for James) and found out they won't be hiring until early 2012. It is still something to keep an eye on, but it has been 6 1/2 years--I hope he doesn't have to wait over another year.

Good point, Barbara. I've got one so I'll revive it.

Sorry, Babe. I got excited about having something happy to post I didn't check carefully enough. I'll be more careful, as I know it is important to give credit where credit is due.
{{{{{{BIG SORRY HUG}}}}

Thanks for the heads up, Barbara.
{{{{{{BIG THANK YOU HUG}}}}}}

(((Hugs))) Barbara. I have a pretty good idea how that feels. My DH hasn't had a steady job since some time in 2003. He had a job for 3 months in 2005 and he had a 3 month contract in 2008. Then the stock market crashed, so they didn't renew it. I'll wish some good luck.

That the most aggravating time of the year is upon us. I'd rather see us getting our Vents out here than unloading them on a poor unsuspecting cashier in the store.

But, I'm heading over there now, I had a good, productive day.

BTW, I'm self-employed.
I was working un-supervised today, I got more work done on my own than when everyone else is around bossing me.

I used to do just fine on my own. Well, maybe I worked too much. But, I keep remembering the quote about getting old isn't for sissies. It's time for me to quit being a sissy.
