Job Search Update

Tomorrow, it will be 2 weeks since I was laid off. I have been into work twice and have done a few things, but am really lacking motivation there. I will get everything done a need to next week - my cousin and her kids are coming tomorrow and I intend to spend some family time with them.

My moments of melt down are fewer and fewer. I had one last week as my recruiter scheduled an interview for this week when family is here - it was right as I was about to walk out the door to meet with my attorney friend to talk about my termination agreement. I got over it on the way to lunch.

Last Friday morning, I met with another recruiter, one that placed three of my friends from Deloitte. He presented an opportunity at a company that is not on my target list, but he is looking for me. I have a follow up lunch meeting on Thursday, from my phone interview last week. Hopefully something will pan out here shortly.

I am beginning to feel the physical effects of the stress - I again slept a majority of the afternoon, and now need to kick it in gear a little. I need to do a few things around the house before my cousin and her kids get here tomorrow. The shower in the happy bathroom does not get used much, so it needs some sanitation and I need to remove the K9 fur from the carpet. A few things to do tomorrow, and then they will be here. I am really looking forward to it - my cousin and I have developed a really bad habit of talking half the night away over the past 2 yrs. This will be year three of their annual trip out here...hard to believe. They will be headed to Milwaukee after visiting us, to be campers again at COPS kids camp. It is a camp for kids who have lost parents in the line of duty. Hard to believe it has been 2.5 yrs since Mike's accident.

So that is the update. Off to scrub toilets. :)

Keep your head up Nicole! A blessing will come from this. You just don't know what it is yet.

I second what B said! Stay positive and know that there is a reason for all of this.
