Where has this blog gone??


It’s been awhile since my last post……….

over a month.

I’ve had a few inquiries into my well being…..

“Hey, are you alright?”…….how nice

“Hey, haven’t heard from you lately.”……….tells me someone’s reading it.

And just tonight, “Where has this blog gone?”

Since my recent demise of joblessness, I find myself to be in a state of limbo……….”what do I do?  which way do I go?”.

See when you’re not out amongst the living, it’s kinda hard to write about “real life”; unless you count getting up every morning and marking another day off the calendar…………another day of being unemployed.

Then I power up my ole laptop and have coffee with my new best friends…………

Texas Workforce Commission.com, JobCentral.com, Beyond.com, and JobExchange.com

It doesn’t stop there; there are lots of others that want to be my friends as well.  Filling up my “inbox” with available job opportunities………

“Truck driver needed, must have CDL license”……………………Seriously!!!!

“Join a winning team…McDonalds”………………………….Oh, kay!!

“Construction hand needed, good pay, se hablo Española”…………………………….you’re kidding me right!!

I spend hours with these friends, sorting through and sharing information.  I’m so busy I don’t have time to mingle amongst the living.  Hell, there are days I never open my mouth and utter a sound; after all, my new friends don’t talk, they just invade my email.

And their friends…………………..well they don’t respond either; they just take my information and file it away in a “Cloud” somewhere.

Frustrating to say the least.

However, I did have a nice vocal conversation with a friend and former co-worker last week while I was at my happy place (the beach)………..there are some perks to my current situation.  She hooked me up with a “consultant” recruiter that could be promising and a networking site called “LinkedIn”.  I know, I know; you all have heard of it, but it was new to me and it gave me a list of a whole set of new friends; friends I’m hoping will talk back.

It would be nice to be able to focus on some “real life” stories again, stories such as………………….

When I’m traveling to see my kids, why do 18-wheelers think they’re the king of the roads.  Little cars carry people to!!……….

or…………….

Last month I had the pleasure of going on a cruise……………I got an intestinal virus; my traveling companion booked an excursion I thought had a jeep, but turned out to be climbing the 125 foot Dunn River Falls………you want me to what???  Where’s the jeep??…………

or maybe…………

I travel a lot between my kids, the beach and home.  One day I noticed myself looking and counting………..hawks on the high-lines. Do you find this to be peculiar?   Because I find it to be perfectly normal for me.   Some people count volkswagons (beavers), I count hawks……………

So maybe things aren’t so bad and there are still plenty of “real life” stories out there for me.  I just need to stop being so whiney and write……..

Where has this blog gone???

Well………..it’s about to get back on track!! 🙂
