I always say that I think one of the most admirable traits a person can have is the ability to laugh at themselves. But today when I received a forwarded email with the subject line "JobMarket2009" from Meme I had a feeling that I would no longer be able to count myself as one with the ability to find humor in all situations--especially considering how well my own job search is going.
However, I am happy to report that my sense of humor still prevails and that I need to share the laughter with those that might find themselves in a similar predicament:
And this is particularly apropos for us since we do, after all, own a landscaping company.
Oh the irony!
I should mention that Carmella asked me this morning if I was worried that I might never find a job. I admitted to her, "a little." She said that she never worries. And I told her that is how it is suppose to be-- that you are not allowed to worry about stuff until you are an adult.
Oh, and for the record, the kids-- I think-- are more desperate for me to get a job than I am. They are dying to stay at the after school programs. Everyday they have suggestions for me at places I could work and things I could do: Publix, Library, Gas Station, Artist, Chef, Dog Walker etc. Though Beau is pushing for the "boring job that makes lots of money."
Okay, carry on all you happily employed peoples.
