I don't WANT to be home all day

I want a job. I'm tired of being unemployed. I'm tired of knowing the TV schedule front to back and knowing what I want to watch while I fold laundry, work on my scrapbook, cross stitch, bake. It was fun in the beginning, but I'm getting tired of it.

The biggest frustration for me right now is people who ask how the job search is going. I've gotten everything from, "Are you not working yet?" to "Wow, that sounds nice, hanging out all day!" It was, at first. But without a baby to take care of, it's just me, myself and the housework, which really isn't even that difficult or time consuming. (Don't get me wrong, I don't want a baby to take care of at the moment, but it would at least change things up a bit!)
Today at the chiropractor's the receptionist asked me what I was going to do all day. I was too embarrassed to tell her that going out for that appointment was my big outing of the day. I got Starbucks, mailed two more applications and headed home. Luckily I need to run out to get some flour for bread, so that gives me another outing. (Unfortunately I got caught up in Wife Swap because they switched husbands instead! But I'm going out after that).

I should feel lucky that I'm spending my days hanging around the house, that I have the time to go to a doctor's appointment and can work out every day. It is inspiring me to work out just so I can get out of the house, so that has been beneficial. Realistically, when I finally DO get a job I'll be working at least part time, if not full time for the next 45 years. I should enjoy relaxing while I can. But going from being busy all day at school to doing nothing? I just can't do it.

Tonight's dinner is a creamy tomato soup cooked in the crock pot and, as long as I can get it going in time, grilled cheese sandwiches on homemade bread! Yum.
