To work or not to work, confused and venting

    I've been job hunting, with some success, have an offer of sorts, but haven't decided what to do yet.

    The problem is that I look at jobs and get exhausted thinking about doing them. I've been enjoying being able to have a life since I've been not working this past month.

    My goal is to work part time if possible. I really want to be able to take yoga classes and do fun dog focused things and have energy to have fun with my family and friends. Working full time precludes all that because all my energy goes to the job.

    I'm having trouble getting excited about a job. darn. I do need to work, and we are not sure our budget can manage with me working part time, but I want to try it.

    Anyway, I'm just venting. Who knew job hunting could be this exhausting??

    Peace,
    Beth.

    Have you perhaps looked on Craigslist for job possabil-
    ities that might suit your situation and would be flex-
    able enough to work at the "good" times?? Maybe a "work
    at home" situation in which you could call your own hours.

    Cosmo is not going to like you going off to a job every-
    day!! He thinks you should be spending all day on one of
    those beaches in Spa-cifica!!

    I'll let you know if I think of anything. I usually have
    great luck finding OTHER people work! I think my room-
    mates think it's a FOUR LETTER WORD!!

    Will "talk" latter,
    MRDAD P.S. Give Cosmo a pet 4 me

    I am petting Cosmo for you! He appreciates the thought. He'll need petting tomorrow, because he gets his sutures out tomorrow. He's feeling pretty good these days, not sure how many vet techs it will take to hold him down.

    Working at home sounds great, except I doubt I could earn enough money. I dunno, will keep checking around! I have several irons in the fire.

    Thanks for the good thoughts!

    Working from home would be ideal for many of us in this situation. The problem is finding real work with real companies that don't expect you to pay some kind of fee up front. Still searching for one of those...

    I agree that there are more scams than not revolving
    around "work at home jobs". Caution is in order. My
    neighbor works from home and must be doing pretty well
    if she can afford paying rent in this City. She is a
    grant writer which I'm sure takes some prior knowledge,
    training and education. Many people work things out with
    companies that enables them to work from home. It seems
    a "being there at the right time" situation.

    Something will come up,
