Failure to Launch

I am sitting at the computer terminals at the Mississippi branch of the library around the apartment that we rent so that Joe can work and keep his sanity. Because of the terrible market, we have decided to keep the house in Indiana and just rent down here. Both he and I spend out time traveling back and forth a great deal.

Now that the time has come that it is imperative that I find a job! I have taken a couple and quit both of them, much to Joe's chagrin. Now that I absolutely must have a job, they are very hard to find.

Especially if you are middle aged. And I mean, really middle aged.

Joe and I were sitting on the "couch" and I asked if 40 were the new 30 was 50 the new 40 and I didn't really look my age did I? Didn't I look like I was cool when I was younger?

I'm pathetic.

So I am going to resurrect Alphawoman. She rises from the ashes. A long time ago I created another jnl. on Blogger and I guess I will continue to keep up both. Alpha is my first attempt and my first true love.

I am rambling.

I went and saw the latest Brad Pitt movie, the Curious Case (?) of Ben. Button.

It made me cry and every so once in a while I would think, this is a long movie....but I still really liked it.

happy New Year.

Keep looking and you will find a job with your ability to convince an employer. I have been walking Salty, lifted my 10 lb. dumbbell's for 3 continuous hours last night, while sitting down inbetween, and then continuing, watching PBS. I found the lighter weight is helping me, if I can keep up this plan, I should see improvement. My meds have been keeping me sedate, and I want to feel more active, but it meant I had to quit doing the activity on my house for 2 month's. I even quit smoking again since Thanksgiving. I don't make promises to myself, just making a choice. Wishing you and Joe a Happy 2009, I am not doing anything other than the usual plan, no celebrating. mark

I haven't really been sure I want to see that movie. I'm not sure why, but the previews feel a bit melancholy to me and I guess right now I need melancholy. I hope the right job turns up soon. It is really hard job hunting out there right now, even for the teens!
