A Watched Pot

May 4, 2009

I got nothing for you. I know it’s pretty lame to post when I have nothing but I can’t stand to see that my last post was last Thursday. It just really drives me crazy.

I was laid off on Thursday so I should have plenty to write about but I just don’t. I’ve been trying to get my grass to grow, the stuff on my lawn, and well, watching grass seed is no different than watching a pot of water. It does not speed up the process. Kinda like staring at the blank page of my blogger account.

I hope to have something soon.

    Well, at least you’ve got some tea kettle and lawn service ads out of it. Sorry to hear about your lay off.

    I’m sorry to hear about the layoff. Stressful times. Hang in there and don’t stare at a blank page too long. It’ll cross your eyes. Or something.

    Sorry about the layoff.
    Here’s hoping something better will turn up, soon.

    Sorry to hear about your layoff. I hope you are able to find something quickly or maybe you’re deal will come through. Crossing my fingers for you.

    Oh, hell, I’m sorry you are temporarily job-free.

    Hey! Tell your ex that you’ve taken a short-term job in Las Vegas, and he’ll need to take care of the kids all summer!

    I feel your pain on the layoff. I was let go 2 1/2 weeks ago, and so far I have not found a thing.. Good Luck to you

    Oh wow, I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s rampant everywhere, geez… I really hope something turns around for you really soon…

    I’m also sorry to hear about the layoff. I keep reading about more and more layoffs everywhere..

    I am sorry about your job. I wish I could offer more than that….

    So sorry. Life is an adventure, eh? Maybe this is the perfect time for you to take time for yourself. We can wait. 🙂

    I’d take ‘laid anything’…but that sucks.

    PHFL, thank goodness they bumped the tooth ad. Unfortunately that tooth will come out one of these days and of course I will have to post about it and then the tooth ad will be back. I apologize in advance.

    Kathy, I gardened all day yesterday which gave me many post ideas, none of which have to do with gardening but that’s usually how it works.

    Old Man, something better always comes along. I wasn’t thrilled about that job anyway but it paid a couple of bills.

    Stacie, you crack me up. I haven’t partook in the weed in decades, never liked it, and somehow I don’t think it would help me find another job. It might make it a lot more fun but not altogether productive.

    Lola, thanks. It’s supposedly a temporary lay off but I was part time so I need to find something anyway. Plus it kinda sucked having to work in the corporate world.

    Bill, if I didn’t think he would drag my ass to court I would do just that for fun. He doesn’t have much of a sense of humor however.

    Nipsy, I hope you find something soon. It sucks out there. The job section of the Sunday paper this week had one page of help wanted ads and half the page was advertising.

    Winky, thanks I’m sure something will turn around.

    Jenny, if I could find one that wasn’t a scam and didn’t take a butt load of start up cash I’d be all over that idea. Any suggestions?

    Bonnie, thanks it does seem to be the popular thing these days.

    Pricilla, you could teach me how to make soap…

    P.L., if the pressure of the bills wasn’t there and I had a little extra I’d go on a vacation but in this economy I don’t know how long it will last so I have to be a bit frugal at the moment. Thanks for being patient.

    Mooog, me too.

    As a Detroiter and fellow midwesterner I feel your pain, hope your prospects are better than they are around here.

    I am sorry about your layoff…it sucks. We’ll work on that drink-more hobby together soon.

  • Reply Jerry K May 6, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    I too am sorry about your layoff. Seems we all know someone (or two or three) who got laid off nowadays. I know one person who told the laid off person that “When one door closes, another opens.” The laid off person almost smacked her over that one.
