Laid Off: Day Five

Today I was up and out of bed right at 10. I had woken up at 8, but kept going back to sleepy-land. I dealt with some things that needed to be taken care of at home via the phone and was doing fairly well. However, I hit a block when it came to going out to run a couple of chores. Although they were not complicated, I had a hard time getting myself to go do them. Hopefully it is just because I don't want to do them and not that I am becoming a psychotic shut-in. Hmmm...since I have not been having a problem leaving the house to do fun things (like going to Karate, I suspect that I just need to get motivated and do them. We shall see what happens on Monday.

It seems that my initial fear is proving to be correct; Jerry Springer was still not on at the regular time. :(

Not a whole lot on the job front, although I was pleased to get an email about my resume. My dad passed my resume along to his friend at work who gave it to a guy who does recruiting for a company in Southfield. I replied to his email and should hear back from him Monday. I'll also give my recruiter another call on Monday. Seems like a lot is going to be happening on Monday...

Later, when Kendra came home, we ran off to Sam's Club. I am always amazed at how so many mentally challenged individuals come together to annoy me at that store. How is it that everyone shopping there has a problem understanding that no one can get by if they stop their cart in the middle of the aisle? Well, at least we got some good deals on cheap food to make up for it. But, just be warned that you may have to deal with extreme pain and suffering for your good deals when you shop there.

Ryan and I played a little D2 after Kendra went to bed. It is nice to be able to do things that are normal to my routine since the whole job thing isn't there right now. It should be fun to go to the Tiger's game on Sunday with my brother and some of my friends, even though the Tiger's really suck. Social things are always good.

I'm not sure if I am going to include the weekend as part of my Laid Off count. So, Monday will likely be Day Six.
