Looking for Temp Work


I like my government job, but it is seasonal. That means I can go months without working, and that’s kind of a problem for my wallet. I do get unemployment but I don’t like to rely on it.

I googled temp agencies in my area, and Robert Half showed up. I called them and I have an interview on Tuesday. I sent them a copy of my resume about an hour ago.

In the meantime, I need to finish putting my bed together. I left a pile of stuff on the bed and now I have to find where to put it. I need to sleep in my bed, not on the sofa. I don’t mind it, but my roommates are feeling a little crowded. Not so much L, but F, since with his disability he often sleeps in the recliner.

We are trying to go keto in the household. I find the meals filling but I am often hungry outside of food times. And I don’t know what to eat! I think I am going to have some cottage cheese in a moment. I like the creaminess. I miss milk and cookies. I have some girl scout cookies that I really want to eat but I’m putting it off. Cottage cheese it is.

I have a cat sleeping next to me who needs to be petted, so I know what my next activity is. It makes both of us happy.

I like sci-fi movies, and I noticed that I like the noir ones best. They are almost universally set in a sort of post-apocalyptic dystopia. I later realized, I find them comforting and familiar, probably because I live there, at least in my inner life. Perhaps things are not as bleak as they seem, or perhaps I am simply learning to keep a better attitude. This is the chronicle of my adventures. May you find something valuable here.

  1. Hey Allison. I really enjoy your blog and I appreciated the sweet cards you have sent me! You are such a kind person on a consistent basis which is a wonderful quality. I envy your job with Fema. Its adventurous, which I like. I dont know if you remember me talking about having alot of pain in my right knee. But I was told about 3 years ago that I needed knee replacement surgery and so I finally got it done on Jan 2. I now am the proud sporter of what I refer to as my bionic knee. So I wont be going anywhere that requires much walking for about 8 more weeks. So if you ever feel like coming over and hanging out with me sometime feel free. My hubby works all day Mon – Sat. We have another married couple living with us now but they work doing home maintenance/remodeling during the day but even so they hang out in the kitchen or their bedroom. Anyway just a thought if you ever want to come see me. Love you my sweet friend😊! Donna 💕

  2. Hi, Donna. I know, we haven’t hung out in forever! It depends on how the temp job works out, but I’ll definitely keep it in mind.
