Got that notice when I filed my unemployment claim on Sunday. I was expecting it, but it still upset me. I have a call into the local unemployment office to make sure I have extensions coming. I’m quite sure I do, but it would be comforting to know for sure.
I saw a new advertisement for a position which I believe is one that I previously interviewed for. It came down to me and one other woman; the other woman got it. Apparently she did not work out. I submitted my resume, but who knows if they’ll call me back or not. One would think that they would, but in these times, employers can pretty much do what they please.
We got a little bit of rain this morning which was very nice. It’s been very dry the past few weeks.
Wally and I have been talking a lot about the horses lately. It seems we made a mistake in thinking that we’d have time to ride. All we’ve done is talk about riding. What does that say about us? We do have down time, but much of that is spent watching television. We don’t watch a lot of television, maybe a couple of hours a day. Is that too much? I said to Wally that we could forgo television and ride, but he said that he needs some time just to sit; that he can’t come home, change and get out on a horse. His job has been hard for some time now. First the employer works the employees’ tails off; then they are sending them home early because there isn’t enough work. We could send Wally’s horse back, but I likely cannot sell Merlin for what I paid for him which was very little, but these days, people are literally giving horses away. I guess they’ll stay for now. They really don’t cost us much to keep. I’ve pulled from all of the Robbie Potter clinics that I was registered for. Money is simply too short to be spending it on frivolous things like clinics.
Until later …
