As I move into my fourth week of unemployment, I must say that I kind of enjoy it. Yes I’m anxious about the fact that neither Sam nor I has a permanent job, but I like hanging around and doing things on my own schedule. My last job was stressful–partly due to the nature of the work, but mostly because the center was a disaster waiting to happen. I sometimes dream that I am back there, and when I wake up I’m extremely grateful to be unemployed rather than there. This is not helping my job hunt. The thought of winding up in another bad center makes me very nervous about the whole process. There are a few centers in Ames that I know are good places, but they don’t seem to be hiring at the moment. Until they are, I’m starting to look for other potential employment. But I’m still kind of enjoying my time to myself.

    Can you do babysitting at your house? A lot of people do that over here with a few kids rather than going to a big centre.

    Wouldn’t really work here, though it is something I’ve considered for the future.
