Working Out

With work being so busy I haven't had the chance to work out, but I have been doing a lot of walking.  I like to walk in between the stores I have to visit.  I think next week I will get back to working out.  The workload isn't as high and it will be October almost time for my birthday.  I want to lose some weight before then.  I think I look fine, but the scale tells me something different.  I haven't been following my vegan/raw diet either, but I have been trying to eat healthy and not too many snacks.  This is usually the time of the year where I give up on dieting and just say I will wait until the beginning of the year.  Not this year.  I will post my workout routine next week and stick to it.

Today reminds me of another time.

Well, today was a good day.  My son was out of school.  Spent some quality time with him.  It's weird being here with him all day.  That was the norm until my daughter was born.  In England we had a schedule.  We would get up, have breakfast, I would watch some of my shows, he would then watch an educational DVD then I would sneak away to play on the internet.  Then we would go upstairs and go over what he learned on the DVD and I would read to him sometimes we would play.  If the weather was nice we would go into the backyard or garden as they say in England.  Or, we would go to one of the three parks located in the little town.  Then he would have lunch, take a nap.  I would do some housework and play on the computer some more.  After nap we would play some more or dance to music.  I would go downstairs to cook dinner and he would watch cartoons.  It's weird how I had such a schedule with him, but with my daughter it didn't work out that way.  Sometimes I miss those times, but if you told me then I would say that now I wouldn't believe you.  I was so lonely there during the day and wanted to be home in Chicago so much.

I have an interview on 10/7 for a part-time social services job.  I hope, I hope I get it.  One problem, it's on the south side and I take the kids to school and pick them up.  So, I'm wondering if I can actually work enough hours to make traveling over there worthwhile.  We shall see.

My Diet Isn't Working

I don't know what's wrong with me.  I can't seem to do the diet I was doing so easily earlier this year.  I was eating 2 raw meals a day (breakfast and lunch) and then a vegan meal for dinner.  I just can't seem to get back into the groove of doing it.  I will try again starting next week.  I have to lose some weight before the holidays because I want to be able to enjoy myself and not cry about every calorie I put in my mouth.

Why Is This So Hard?

I don't understand why I can't even seem to get anywhere in this job market.  The lady I was talking about yesterday never called me back.  So, I called her.  She first kept me on hold for a couple of minutes.  You know that feeling you get when someone doesn't want to talk to you.  That's the feeling I got. Of course she has this attitude with me right away when I ask her if she has another interview time available.  Only Tues at 3:30pm.  When I tell her why I can't make that time she then asks "How are you going to work a job if you have to pick your kids up?"  I told her that I would get aftercare for them, but I'm working part-time right now so I don't need it.  She seemed to not even want to try to help me out in any way.  She just was unwilling to move and wouldn't be interviewing people the following week.  She just didn't seem to care if I was able to make it in or not.  So, I just thanked her for considering me and hung up.  I'm relieved because I feel the interview would have been a disaster so it's probably best that I skip this one, but on the other hand...why is this so hard.  Usually I send in resumes and I get calls.  Now I get nothing but rude, uncooperative people who know that people are desperate for work and they can treat them any way they want.   I'm so tired of looking for work.  If I knew that the place I am working at right now had some growth potential I wouldn't be so ready to leave, but it doesn't.   Ok, you win the Gods of whatever it is that's keeping me from getting a real full-time with benefits job.  You win!  I have officially given up on ever working in the social service field again.  I just...don't get it.

Well, this woman called me for an interview today.  She left a message.  I call her back and of course haven't heard from her.  I really hate waiting.  I wish I had been here for the call.  I'm really tired of this job search.  I just wish someone would discover what an amazing person I am and just hire me.
