so the government has been trying to block Congress from passing an automatic 3 month extension for anyone who has exhausted their unemployment and is still unemployed. The Senate blocked it twice already recently. Congress is trying to put it through again. Meanwhile you can’t even file to get any extension at all even with dire circumstances. hi single mom…unemployment runs out in August and the job market sucks more than a $2 prostitute who needs money for crack.

So i was offered interviews for a few positions that would be a $5 and $6 pay cut, that i would have to pay $4 a gallon in gas to drive there…ha ha ha my check would be less than unemployment pays and 1/3 of it would go to big oil…nice job America. At least next time could you use some KY when you try to fuck me in the ass?, pregnancy has me uncomfortable as it is. (question to ponder- ever seen the advertisement for Black Gold on T.L.C.? they drill in the US for Oil…for a whole TV season…why are we buying from the Middle East again?)

I sent out 9 resumes today, have 3 numbers to call tomorrow and 2 fax numbers to fwd to. How much you wanna bet the only calls I get are for jobs offering $5 less an hour and just a tad further than I am willing to pay for gas to travel…..isn’t America wonderful? Meanwhile lets not forget that the rich keep getting richer and everyone else takes it up the ass….and I can’t even drink myself happy right now       😦   life can be so cruel I swear.

I do say this all with my twisted sense of humor, despite wanting to panic, I sit here laughing at the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in….I say we go back to Horses for transportation and wampum for trade…who’s with me?!

The baby kicked me so hard two nights ago it woke me up,, and I sat up all sorts of confused like I don’t have to pee, what the hell woke me up?…there it is again, what the fuck is that? OMG i remember this, its kicking me!! others can’t feel it yet, but this sucker went from weak and uncoordinated fluttering overnight to Dav.id Beck.ham’s prodigy…so soon they’ll all enjoy it with me 🙂 cheers…someone have a bottle of Pino Grigio for me this weekend please!!

**update- I heard on the news this morning (and then checked online) that they passed the extension for unemployment benefits. Anyone receiving unemployment between now and March will get an automatic 13 week extension because of how terrible the job market and economy are. score one for the little people! That take me to Thanksgiving and about 2 weeks from my scheduled C-section…I’ll take it.  so now to find a part time job from Sept to Dec just for added $ to sock away and keep my partial benefits…wish me luck. Unfortunately I doubt I will be eligible for disability now when I am at home with baby…so we’ll have to bust our butts (and by our I mean walkers) and sock extra $ away to cover Dec and Jan with one income only  😦   we do what we gotta do right?
