Well Its Welcome to the unemployment line again.

Friday was my last day at the school district.  On thursday, they gave me a really nice luncheon and everyone brought food in for it.  Sloppy Joes, fried chicken wings, a wonderful salad with cheese, pecans, mandrin oranges with italian dressing mixed with the juice of the oranges.  I got some wonderful gifts and of course I cried.  Friday I took my gifts in to all of them.  I made two necklaces for the ladies that I worked the closest with.  Gave the H.R. Executive director a silk scarf, gave her administrative assistant a MSU t shirt (they won their game and now its on the the final four for them).  I have had a busy two weeks training the girl that got the job and working long hours to make sure that she was trained properly.  Even though she beat me out of the job, I had decided prior to the interviews that if someone else won I would train them to the best of my ability.  Besides I really like her she is a wonderful person.  I only wish I could have the chance to work with her more.  We work really well as a team believe it or not.

So today I am filing for unemployment, we can do it online here.  And, I plan on watching the race on tv too.  This means that once again, I cannot go to the races at MIS this summer.  Its been three years since I could go and I really miss it.  But, no money.  I am toying with the idea of making some jewelry and see if anyone would want to buy it.  Maybe open an Esty shop perhaps.  We will see.
