Ok, so I filled out the application for unemployment. I’ve got an appointment with Family Services tomorrow, and I’ve got a bunch of applications out there sitting, with a bunch more in the mill. I’ve posted my resume at a local job site, and have gotten nothing but a couple of scam offers from there so far. Sorry, I’m not interested in MLM and I can submit my own resume to “85 top job boards” myself. LIke I have anything better to do.
The news says that the job outlook is getting better in the area, but that’s relative. The January unemployment rate was over 13%, while the national average is just under 9%. That’s not promising for finding a new job. That being said, I’m still going to keep looking and I am not above going into fast food at this point.
I’ve got my Etsy shop open, but the listings are pretty bare at the moment. Hell, I don’t even know if anyone has looked at them other than Kristen and me. The problem is that if I want to have the possibility of business, I need a fair number of products, but having product means shelling out the money for materials in the first place. I get the impression that Kristen is not keen on me spending more money that we don’t really have on something that may not serve any purpose.
I guess I could consider Farmer’s markets in the area, though. It sure can’t hurt, right?
