My back up plan

I am getting pretty worn out on this whole job hunt process. I've certainly given up on trying to find work in Michigan.
I applied to DC, have had several phone interviews, plenty of interest. Sent introductory emails and follow up emails but nothing has panned out yet. I got advice on the best neighborhoods, found a great place to live finally that I can afford and I've even applied to several charter schools in DC, which I promised I wouldn't do but hey I figured, I could just leave and go to the district when they called.
Now, I've applied to the Fairfax County Schools in Virginia as my second choice to work and now, I've applied to the New Orleans School district as another back up plan. I figured putting all my eggs in one basket is why I'm unemployed now.
So, I'm just gonna keep trying and applying for all jobs I qualify for. I'm getting super restless and while I've finished my degrees and am paying off all my back bills slowly but surely, I just feel like I should have more to do. Yeah, I should probably go work out, but I'm just not motivated to do that yet. I hate to complain, but its a beautiful day. I should be at work enjoying it with kids, not stuck at home.
And thing is, I wanna go out and do things, I have no money to do it. Oh well, I guess I'll be back in the grind soon enough and then I'll be complaining of being too tired. I have worked since I was 15, so really I've been working for 25 years and maybe its time for a break. I don't know. A few months was fine, but this has been 9 months now, I could have had a baby by then.
Anyway, something will come through soon. I feel it.
