Umemployment Update

So I just got a notice in the mail stating I AM eligible for benefits from my employer prior to the crap job. It didn't say anything about the crap job though so I guess I have to call and ask about that. But at least I get something! I always knew they would come through for me anyway, they didn't want me to leave in the first place. God I miss that job....


The Return of the Computer Genius

Ok, so you all can feel free to call me a genius whenever you wish. I have returned from hot processor land, thermal paste is applied and computer is still running. WOO HOO.

In other news, I did find two interesting jobs and apply for them yesterday, just waiting to see if I hear anything from either of them. Still waiting to find out if I get unemployment or not. Got my fingers and toes crossed on that one.

Everything else is good, unfortunately now that I'm home all day (and bored out of my mind), I really don't have much to tell. I did however, manage to banish all the dust bunnies that were hiding behind and under furniture yesterday and wash every possible thing I could so now the house is really clean. I also discovered that our local library is pretty much useless. If any of you have ever seen a smaller library I will be shocked - I think it used to be a house. The good news is, I can have books from other (larger) libraries sent there for me to pick up, so at least I won't be too bored. I did already read "The Invisible Man," (I can't believe how short it was) and still have "The Catcher in the Rye" to go before I look again. If any of you have read any good classics and have suggestions for me, let me know.

Next Dilemma Down

Well it seems I have a resolution to my job problems....they fired me this morning. While I can tell you I don't appreciate nor like being fired, I am glad I don't have to go back to that hell hole any more. I filed my unemployment application just now, so we'll see what happens I guess.

In happier news, I get to see my Aunt Tammi this weekend even if her reason for visiting is not so happy.

Baby is healthy so far, I think I hit 26 weeks now and get to go for my gestational diabetes test soon. No blood pressure problems or anything yet (which is a miracle considering my stress lately).

Wish me luck in finding a good job this time (if you want to that is...LOL)

Two Dilemma's Down.....

So I think I figured out my computer problem, thanks Bitterroot for all your help!

As for the second dilemma - I finally get to watch American Idol without rabbit ears! YEA!!!!

We had direct tv, which was great, but they didn't offer local channels in our area, so we were using an antenna. Let me tell you, that SUCKS! I wanted to switch to Dish Network, but when I found out they cancelled Court TV (as Aunt Tammi can attest) that lost them my business. So the other day my phone company called trying to sell me a long distance package (which I don't need or want). After I told them no, they asked if I've heard of Dish Network. My response? Oh yea, we don't like them 'cause they dropped Court TV. Well apparently I'm not the only one who feels that way 'cause they brought it back. So we signed up - they offer local channels AND a free DVR (which Direct TV wanted me to pay $100 for). WOO HOO! I can not tell you guys how happy I am! Now if I can just find another job.....

Computer Geeks Arise

Not sure if anyone who reads knows anything about computers or not, but - I've been looking into additional cooling options for my machine - my processor seems to run a little hot and I've heard about "water cooling." What I want to know is, is this something external or internal, how does it work, etc.

Anybody know anything?
