Pepper watches and watches and watches...for anything that moves, breathes, makes noise... If she were a person I would definitely diagnose her with OCD. Now if she would only wash her paws...

Petey is better :-)

Petey is doing much better today so we get to avoid the vet appointment for now. His leg is still a little tender, but he's tooling around pretty well today.

Sorry about the lousy mobile pic-I'm getting lazier and lazier about getting my camera out. I can't wait to upgrade my Blackberry in January - there's a much better camera in the new model I want. I hate crappy pictures!

Petey says, "Woof!"

Poor Petey

Petey started limping this morning and it got progressively worse over the day. We wrapped his leg to cushion it until we can get him to the vet tomorrow. It's always something! The vet's office is my second home - really. Hopefully it is just a sprain and he won't wind up in a cast hobbling around.

tapping fingers...

Still waiting to hear about a job. After three interviews with the same program I am still waiting. Granted, they did say they had a thorough hiring process, but geez. Being unemployed has taken a toll on my confidence and self-esteem. I know it will come back when I get my life rolling and structured again, but it can't come soon enough. You'd think being off for so long would be a gift-and it WAS-but now it's a drag and bringing me down. I don't get very much done despite having more time. My motivation has been waning the longer I go without a job.

So, hire me already!

Well, that didn't work...

I tried. Apparently my hunger for cuticles was greater...

I'm sitting in a parking lot; early for a THIRD interview for a social work position. Gawd, I'm tired of being unemployed! It has really affected my confidence and motivation.

I didn't sleep much last night so let's hope I don't fall asleep in the middle of it. ;-)

Well, I guess I'll go find a bathroom and mosey my way to my destination. Who knows, maybe I'll get an offer.

Ugh, here we go again. I hate interviewing.

Nailing it

Painted my nails for the first time in EONS in a desperate attempt to stop chowing down on my friggin' cuticles. I know-exciting post.

I haven't really found a layout I like...there's lots of customization to do. I'm not the nerd I used to be when I was working in communications! It takes me much longer to figure out how to change things now.

I'll be updating more...soon.

testing out new layouts

Don't mind the dust and broken links...just testing out new looks and formats...

One more time

I hope I can breathe some new life into HATamaran. Facebook has usurped many a blogger. And I have to admit that's where I spend most of my time now, too. We'll see. It's been kind of precarious here lately not having a job. I am needing to move forward. I hope to get back to updating regularly. Life has changed A LOT since this blog went stale a couple of years ago!

I'm not dead, yet at least...

Approaching 100 days of being laid off. Some of it has been fun and some has been nerve wracking and depressing. Right now my plan is to go ahead and study foe licensure since my supervision period is up. Then I will have a better field of jobs from which to choose (I hope). We'll see. Right now I am fortunate enough to be doing some contracted veterinary social work, so that's been great and has lightened my heart. It will all turn out. I'm going to allow myself to have some faith in that.
