While we were on vacation, I learned that the temp job I was working at right up until we left has no steady work for me for at least the next two weeks so now my job anxiety has spiked again. This means I had to tell my new sitter that I might not need her starting the 11th. She is ok with it and willing to hang in there until I find something permanent. DH is ok with it for now, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he starts getting anxious, too. I'm still working for the other company at night but their work load has slowed down considerably. I had no billable hours for them at all in June. Still no word on the possible FT position there and I'm pissed that my boss even brought it up when it's not even doable right now. I thought it was a real possibility, not just some dream of his to hire me on.
I was just reading our township's newsletter and saw a column about job hunt consulting. I just called to make an appt. with the lady and her earliest opening is Sept. 19th!! I took it anyway, just in case. I guess she reviews resumes and makes referrals. Since April, she's referred 15 out of 39 people that came to see her, not great but better than nothing I guess. There's also a "job club" coming up next month so going to try to make that as well, although the lady I spoke to on the phone was unsure of the start time and said nothing is posted online. Thanks lady, you're a real wealth of information. How am I supposed to arrange for a sitter when you can't even tell me what time this thing is?
So back to job hunting until the wee hours of the night, feeling exhausted. Trying to keep up hope that I'll find something, teaching or otherwise, before the end of summer, otherwise things are going to get real ugly at home. While I'm grateful to be home with Selin and have all this extra time with her, it's hard to enjoy it when in the back of my mind, I know that I really need to be bringing in money
