Unemployment has a website called jobs4jersey and you post your resumé (cv) using their form. Categories, drop down menus, choices - none of which apply. There are a few boxes where you can enter your own stuff. I did say that I'm able to handle retail customers with tact and patience, meaning that I have so far been able to restrain myself from jumping over the counter and throttling someone and also have not yet stabbed myself in the eye with a pen.
Anyway I asked it to look for suitable jobs. It came up with a list of jobs that couldn't possibly qualify for or had nothing to do with my skills. It asked me if I wanted to refine my search, so OK I told it not to send me any jobs that had "retail" or "sales" in their description. And lo and behold it came up with nothing, zero, zilch.
With any luck they will decide that I am unemployable.

It has been explained to me that in order to receive unemployment benefits it is necessary to actually look for a job. Bummer. I have an appointment with unemployment on Thursday morning which I have been advised can take up to two hours. They are going to assist me in my job search. We shall see.

Thanksgiving last night at Kelli and Christine's with the whole family and Christos, Dean's friend from college. We had an amazing meal and then played cards against humanity. I feel so blessed with family and adopted family it's ridiculous.
Sleepy days, making art and music, thrifting and visiting and not very work focused at all.
In the new year Dean and I will be credit card debt free! We have saved and got a small windfall from an investment and we will be able to pay of all our cards (no small feat because we are talking about 30 thousand that has been weighing super heavily on us)
I will have my car payment and a debt to my sister who helped us with a down payment on the house and we will have the mortgage but the extra money we will save will go towards projects that we have been wanting to do in the house (finish pond outside and build our back deck, put a laundry room in so that the washer dryer is not in the open from the kitchen. I couldn't ask for a better Christmas present.
Dinner tonight was greek salad and lamb souvlaki on the barbecue.
Essential oils in the tub were Bergamot Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang and Lavender blend.
If you could get anything for Christmas as a gift what would you chose.
