I was actually starting to go insane on day two. I managed to hold off on writing a whiny post until now. You're welcome.
I'm just not one of those people who likes laying around. I need to get out and do things and be productive. Don't get me wrong- I'm trying: Yesterday I watched a full season of Supernatural.

In my defense, a lot of the time I was watching TV I was also doing housework, applying for jobs, or riding my stationary bike.
So, until I get a job, I have a whole lot of nothingness to look forward to. I'm already going to physical therapy twice a week and exercising whenever I can. How should I spend my time? Here are my options:
- Work on getting published in a social work journal
- Practice gluten-free baking
- Get fat
- Clean (Booo!)
- Update my cookbook
- Learn Spanish
- Start being an extreme couponer
The darnedest thing about unemployment is that I'm not supposed to be spending money. Hence, the limited options.
Also on my to-do list is that I need to work on is not being a huge bitch when Kevin comes home. After a long day of nothing, the last thing I want to do it spend an evening doing nothing. So, sometimes that makes me cranky and resentful.
My dear friend and physical therapist, Don, has suggested that this is a blessing in disguise. Perhaps, unemployment is what I need right now. I don't know if I just need this time to get stronger or if there's some larger cosmic reason. We'll see.
Any tips for surviving this monotony?
