Actually had some work to do today. Drafted a contract from 8:30 to 11; then reviewed a subcontract starting at 11:15 to 1pm.
I am tired.
I am exhaused just working the hours I did today.
The OMG exclaimation comes after successfully navigating VEC to report last weeks job hunting ( again. The RE-DO after the failed redo the other day!)
It worked as I knew this time to not try to change any responses. It just takes time to pull up the data of places looked for work. I rely on my internet history to find the sites I applied to. The fact finding is VERY specific- wanting exact web sites sent resumes and completed job applications at. asking for company physical address and phone # which I have to google of course. It feels like such ridiculous busy work.
SO I get it done and see the comments on my account
Issues Delaying Payment:
I never did get to report job hunting activity in NOV and DEC- I got bumped and when got back in the system it was not allowing me to catch up but only allowed me to enter the CURRENT JAN job hunting activity.
It is also taking the ZERO DOLLARS reported from my company (sole propietor) as "Stopped reporting part time wages"
I know this has to get tedious to read.
But I have to vent as it is ridiculous.
The good news is this is the FIRST month I do not have to BORROW money from family to pay my bills.
It is the first month I was able to transfer money from my business account BACK to my personal account- paying back the inital investment ( part of it!) that paid for the web page design.
I will turn a profit yet! I just wish VEC did not have such a cynical and non trusting view of people.
When job hunting I have to say Thank God for recruiters! I get tired and then they call or email with good jobs I have not found yet. Makes the job hunting consistently easier! My resume was sent to a couple postings by a recruiter this week.
I got ALMOST everything I wanted to get done accomplished this week
NEXT Week will get that done. ( I left messages at medical offices.)
Now its nap time for a bit before cooking dinner.
My tenant got a free box of Home Chef meals from a friend and gave it to us. It arrived this week and I tell you I LOVE the convenience of that. When I am tired there is nothing better than the ingredients all set out along with clear cooking directions I just have to follow ( even if they use chicken and poblanos and crunchy jalapeno over and over again with that meal service). Its so easy and great when tired. No thinking and minimal effort to cook a good meal.
I don't care for the amount of packaging the shipping requires. Better for the environment to plan meals with a recipe and go to your local store for the ingredients. The thing is some of us are really bad at understanding how much of each ingredient to buy. We make too much of any recipe when left on our own. When I cook I tend to make a large batch or whatever and then eat it all week. ( Last week it was Chili I made for a Sunday meeting after church that I then had to eat all week. The kids would not even eat any as they were worried it was sitting out too long for a pot luck!)
So when I cook there is just TOO MUCH Of whatever I make. The kids also don't like my cooking all that much so then I am left eating too much of whatever it is.
Yeah that is what I am going to do after a nap.
Almost forgot I have a writing class signed up for. Just not into it at this time- but will go. - 2023-01-25
