Before we get to my unemployment update let me tell you what I did this past weekend!
I saw Garth Brooks! Yes, again!
This time I took my Uncle (my Dad’s brother) with me and we had a great time! The concert was very similar to the one I went to the week before except I was sitting further away. Not a big deal since there really are no bad seats at a Garth concert. All the songs he played were the same with the exception of a couple of the encore songs. The Garthisms in between songs were similar to what he talked about the first time around as well but not verbatim. I honestly wish I could be a Garth groupie and follow him everywhere he goes but alas adult responsibilities and a limited budget get in the way of that dream. A girl can wish though.
Now for that unemployment update I promised you or what I like to call my update on being in between jobs. It’s been about a month since I’ve been in between jobs. I had hoped that I would have found THE job by now but these things sometimes take time. I’ve had many friends reach out to me offering to connect me with people they know and to pass on my resume which has been awesome! It is so appreciated! I have had several phone interviews but no in person interviews as of yet. I have also received a handful of thanks but no thanks emails which sucks but I try to see them as one rejection closer to THE job!
I honestly don’t miss going to where I used to work but I do miss the structure of going to a job. I am a routine / structure crazed kind of person I suppose. Despite that, I have been enjoying my time at home and my extra time with B. The only negative side effect of being in between jobs (other than the loss of income of course) is that I haven’t slept well since it happened. Which is frustrating and I’m not sure how to fix it.
I go up to my bedroom when I get tired and as soon as I lay down I am suddenly not tired. My mind has decided that as soon as my heads hits the pillow it needs to digest a bajillion different things and then once it does finally let me go to sleep it is a very restless sleep filled with lots of tossing and turning. This results in me feeling very sleep deprived during the day. I’ve tried taking naps and I can’t fall asleep for those either. I’ve tried exhausting myself with exercise and taking tart cherry juice as a natural sleep aid but neither of those have worked either. Oh how I would love to get a good night’s sleep again.
Other than not sleeping well and making frequent trips to the grocery story (a story for another time), I think I have been handling being in between jobs as best as I can.
Have you been unemployed? Tell me your story!
Any ideas on how I can rectify my sleep issue?
