I have been busy

Busy reading books, that is.

This past November, my job was " gone with the wind" so after I returned from my visit to New Zealand to visit my family, I signed up for unemployment benefits to get me by, while I searched for a job.
In the meantime, I have been catching up on some reading, getting some indoor painting done, and a few other chores I had promised myself I was going to take care of.

Living on a small Island has it's drawbacks when looking for employment as there are not a whole lot of opportunities, and I really, really do not want to commute. To commute, means taking a ferry across to the mainland then travelling the busy roads to the job site.
First of all, waiting in a ferry line to board the ferry for the crossing, is so tiresome on a daily basis, and then having to deal with snarly traffic every day, is just not my "cup of tea" At my age, just one more year before I can draw social security, I am looking for a little peace in my life, not adding stress.

This afternoon I have an interview for a job which I think may be just the thing to keep me out of trouble. I will let you know what it is and how it turns out, later on.

UPDATE: my interview went well, and orientation is Wednesday afternoon.

i agree about lack of job opportunities and commuting problems when you live in a small community. I'm not even your age, and even doing the school run is a real drag.
