Losing Touch

I’m still searching for employment. With my funds dwindling before my eyes, I am off to Kelly Services tomorrow. The whole not working thing has been fun, but now it is getting a little depressing. My growing concerns with my bills have begun shadowing my happy go lucky vibe. Ask me two weeks ago if I was happy, and I would have answered definitely yes. Now, I’d probably give you the go to meh response. I was gambling with the idea that I could be choosy and better my situation. I should have known. My gambling experiences in Las Vegas never worked out before. Lol! It also doesn’t help that the news constantly reminds me that Las Vegas has the highest ratio of unemployment in the country. These concerns are even affecting my writing. As you could tell if you follow the film review blog, my reviews have been lacking in content if not present period. That is what annoys me most. I get stressed when my writing isn’t flowing out naturally.

On the bright side, I still have fun with my nephew and the little walker he is developing into. He really is a riot. I jokingly call him Godzilla. He gets this intense, zoned look on his face if I have something he just has to investigate. Then he walks towards me focused completely on whatever interested him, whatever is in his way be damned. This is when my nephew channels Godzilla. It cracks me up. He’s also a little chatter box. I’m not quite sure what he’s saying, but I’ll let you know when I master the translation. The little man is starting to get very sneaky. It is amusing, but hard to discipline. I am being challenged just as he is. He’s starting to become aware of what he can and cannot do, and before he does something he is not supposed to, he shoots a look around to see if someone is watching. It’s pretty funny, but I have to work very hard not to laugh. We are both going to be learning a lot of things we cannot do.

I am looking forward to my first babysitting gig this week. I’m sure that I will have a lot of fun, because the little girl is a sweet pea. Hopefully, I’ll get some better news tomorrow after I venture to Kelly Services. They haven’t failed me yet, so I hope they don’t start now. I am starting to get a little homesick. I said a little, people, not a lot. Lol! Don’t make any party plans. I know you guys miss me as much as I miss you. I may currently be a squatter, but it is locationaly permanent. Yes, I just made up a word. It happens with me. As much as I appreciate the offer of some kind of employment if I return, this is supposed to be a lasting gig. I would like to take the opportunity to give a shout out to all of my ladies back at AHN, my friends in Indy, and my sisters. I love and miss you all.

For now, I will continue my usual “I’m bummed, and I cheer myself up with television shows I’ve seen over and over” ritual that has propelled me through the years. They’re perfect for me, because I don’t have to devote too much attention to them and can still be entertained. I just finished watching the Sailor Moon series again. Crikey, did she just mention an anime?!? Before you begin to question my values, I am not what you would call an anime enthusiast. This is the only one I’ll claim, because I watched it when I was a kid and loved it!! As an adult I got to know the Japanese version, which is actually a little more complex. It has a great romance story line that my inner hopeless romantic tripped over. The lead character is the unlikely superhero who is just entertaining if not loveable. I like revisiting my old favorite cartoons, because they allow me to slip into the delusion of what it was like to be a carefree kid. Since I finished that, I moved back to my current favorite, Supernatural. The guys are pretty and funny, so it’s obvious why I go back to it. Can’t help myself with my not so guilty pleasure. This is what happens when I have nothing going on. I talk about nothing. Lol! Here’s to a hopeful future something!

Until next time…..
