Is it Friday Yet?
Every Sunday the same several thoughts roll through my brain. How long until the weekend? Do I really have to go to work? What would I do if I won the lottery?
Every weekend, I am working towards the next one. For the past year or so I have been trying to get back to Cleveland. All it would take for me to leave would be a job.
I'm starting to think winning the lottery has better odds.
Since the economy tanked, jobs are scarce. This certainly wouldn't be the climate to just quit your job on a whim in hopes of finding something when you get to a new city. The days of packing up your old like to exchange it for something new and shiny are over.
While I am grateful that I still have a job, I wish I could trade it in for something else. Just like when we were kids...I'll trade you my snack pack pudding for your jello cup.
Tomorrow will be filled with more resumes and the hope for something better.
