Hibernating in Summer

The heat is gone. There were a couple of chill and rainy days, but, now, it's sunny and warm.

It would be nice to be outside, but... I'm mostly sitting inside reading or watching movies.

And dabbing or doodling over my diary pages now and than. From the finished spreads, this is my favorite so far.

Thank goodness for the need to walk our dog (although those walks turn out pretty stressful sometimes) and to buy groceries, or I might not leave the house for weeks.

Have sent my CV to at least 10 employers. One of them even invited me to an interview. After that - silence... Didn't like most of the vacancies anyway... But how to live and feed my 2 youngest kids and our 4 pets without money in this world? And how to feel worthwhile without anybody ready to reward my services?

Listed another of my works in my shop on redbubble.com. But what change does it make? Depressing...

And you know I'm always happy to hear from you, right?

It's a full-time job trying to find a job, isn't it? Hang in there... You are not alone :)x
And your artwork is just lovely - do you sell on Etsy?

Thank you so much, Claire!

Although I have a couple of shops on Etsy, I don't sell my artwork there (yet?), doing it through Facebook.

That spread looks great. Don't give up, someday something will turn up for you.

I love the journal pages. Sorry to hear you are in this space and while you are there it doesn't help for others to say it is serving a purpose in some way! I know because when my daughter was ill and a guy told me to reach for a better feeling thought I wanted to inflict bodily harm on him! So when you feel ready...here is a great FREE resource that may be interesting to you ;) Big hugs...http://hangoutwithmichael.com/

Sometimes hibernating feels so good! Glad you are getting out a little with the dog, though.

Keep putting stuff out there. Keep connecting with people and doing things that feel good, and then let things come when they will. I know that's so hard, but hang in there!

Your journal pages remind me of a world map! I love that you're sharing them. Hang in there, with the job search; you haven't found one yet, because the perfect one is coming along. Sending you lots of positive energy! :)

The colors are so beautiful in your art. After a reasonable time, it's OK to call and ask the places you have interviewed if they have filled the position.
