I'm sinking into a depression today. This week I had a job interview, and was called for a follow-up. I was sure I had the job. They called last night. Turns out, the opening was technical...as in, they've had someone doing it the past year on a one year contract. In the end, she got to keep her job. The principal said he has one more opening coming up, and another possible one. The bottom line is, though, no job. This morning my doorbell rang. It was the postlady. She had a whole pile of letters for folks in my condo area...all of whom are teachers who are now officially unemployed. I've known since December that I was losing my job. I've been applying like crazy, going to job fairs, and have only had the one actual interview. I've been teaching 25 years, and I think that may be keeping me from getting called. Hard to believe that after 25 years of good job reviews I'm now filing for unemployment. This will mean no Disney for at least the next two years for us. I'm trying to find the silver lining...I'm heading to the YMCA to see if we can get a free membership now. As a single mom I couldn't afford the $75 a month membership. Maybe we can go and play for free.
