At least some of us are still getting interviews!!
Hope for the best prepare for the worst.
Dow dropped 778 points today!!!
No calls and no new jobs today. I spent the day clipping coupons.
What do you think about that MAT? I don't have any interest in the Dow because I don't have any investments. My retirement (what little I've acquired) isn't in a 401k or investments. Its a sad state of affairs that we're in or getting ourselves into.
Bread and water are looking pretty good right now.
be positive... the old me would say you did some freelance consultanting without pay!
the new me says... they were impressed...
Expect a yes, until they say no... my new slogan...
keep at least 50-100 bucks in travelers checks or cash...
we don't want to be paranoid...but...who knows what will happen with the banks and the ATM cards, and credit cards...
If Amercian Express goes down..it will affect the entire world of travel! So I hope they are stable
I am also buying savings bonds - the govt should still be able to honor those!!!
All I can say is thank goodness for the FDIC. This is why 401k's are not a good thing. Let's say you're retired and pulling from these investments right now. What do you do?

I'm going to the happy place tomorrow Maybe while I'm away I'll get some calls. Positive thinking, positive thinking....
What's the happy place? This was going to be a positive week for me, but its only Tue and those positive thoughts are fading fast. DH applied for a local PD. They have one spot open on their academy, but won't find out until the end of Oct/beg of Nov. He's also thinking of signing up for the Air National Guard as he'd get a signing bonus. Soooooo again its a wait and see. That 6th grade position is still posted, but I haven't heard anything back from the principal.
tell me about the happy place. This is the 1001st post to this thread!! We may all need to visit it!!
I can't believe it's Sept. 30th and I turned on the heat tonight! I don't ever remember worrying about heat so early in the fall. Of course, I never had to turn it on either. Funny being a homeowner, and having control over your own heat. After 1 year, still seems weird.
Hey, here's some happy news....
both the Cubs and the White Sox are in the playoffs!!
Who saw that coming?
I don't think that has ever happened before!
Your turning on the heat and we are still using the air conditioner. i certainly hope that sometime soon it cools down so that I can open the window.

Keep your chin up STG!! God is putting you through this for a reason. I went through some dark times and God pulled me through-IN HIS TIME-not mine. Stay positive. You seem like a great person, I know something good will come your way!!
Well it's official I didn't get the job for the last interview I had last week. It's pretty sad when you have all the qualifications that they ask for and you even know the principal to an extent and you still can't seem to get the job. What in the world do I have to do to get a freaking job. I'm exhausted and I just don't get it. Is there something that I am missing here? My cousin who hates teaching gets a job the minute she walks in the door.(read about in another post) Sorry for the vent!
The happy place is Disney World!! I live about 3 hours from it. We're leaving as soon as hubby gets home. I got another rejection today. I was expecting it since I've applied at this school for around 10 positions and they never call me back. i even interviewed as a transfer and got rejected.
