Still unemployed. It seems like I'll have to go the Temp route in order to secure a position. Temp to Perm. However, it seems hard to even get a Temp spot. Not only that, they don't pay as well as I would like, but I guess it is the only way I'm going to get in the door. I've gotten a few rejections, but it is OK. Also still waiting on the unemployment to kick in. I got my last official paycheck last Friday, and my Severance won't get here until August 31st...it is all a waiting game.
My son goes back to school on August 27th. He has been home since mid-May, and I know he is itching to get back. It has been a boring summer for him. He couldn't find a part-time job, so he just hung around all summer. Spent some time with his friends, but most of his time was spent in the house.
School doesn't start for Clarissa until September 8th. We got everything but her uniforms. She won't need the Fall uniform until after Columbus Day, so I have time to scrape that together.
I finished Level 2 of my Guitar Class. I am moving on to Level 3 (Intermediate) on September 11th. The last day of Level 2 class was last Saturday, and I was the only student to show up. Everyone else in the class blew it off. It was nice for me, because my teacher (Vince) taught me some Led Zeppelin riffs instead of the class song (which was Bon Jovi).
