Economic Casualty – Weeks 7 and 8

Wondering where I’ve been lately? Well, my 7th week among the ranks of the unemployed was pretty quiet, so I decided to post for both weeks 7 and 8 in one shot.

As I said earlier, not much happened during week 7 – I was pretty much in my routine of applying for jobs, keeping an eye on the garden, and going to Aikido. Week 8 was much more interesting – I was called for an interview! Thanks to a contact who had my resume, I had a quick phone interview on Thursday, and before the day was out I had an in-person interview scheduled for the following week.

On Saturday morning, my wife and I attended the kickoff event for the Walk For Kids Help Phone, which I will be walking in. The kickoff included a screening of “Yes Man,” and I must admit, I had pretty low expectations for this movie – Jim Carrey hasn’t really done much in the way of funny stuff lately as far as I’m concerned. That being said, I was plesantly surprised to find that it was a really funny movie, and it did carry a good message about opening yourself to possibilites. Saturday evening and Sunday morning were spent with my family, including a belated birthday for my sister, and a trip to Shaw’s Pancake House to restock our maple product supply.

See you at the end of Week 9 – it may be the last.
