It's Sunday. I have managed to lose 3 lbs this week so I feel pretty good about that.
I am procrastinating. I should have a shower and start the day but I am sitting at my computer. I've been here for about an hour and a half in my robe.
I am unemployed and have been since March. Not because I can't find a job but because I have not been looking for a job. I know that does not sound good but right after I was laid off my fiancÚ was 'work force reduced' after 19 years with his company and got a package, so we have been looking into franchise opportunities. We started off with a fast food type place and after waiting since May to the end of August without any progress- not sure that the franchise owner actually understood how to sell a business because he did not seem to be able to provide us with anything we were asking for - so we decided to end our negotiations- if you could even call it that because we had no numbers to work with.
We are now focusing on a retail store and are waiting on the franchise owner to put a value on the business. We are new to the franchise business too so we are not 100% sure how it works but we wish it would take less time to get the information we need to go to the bank with.
We are in limbo right now waiting on information because there is no sense in us going out and getting jobs if we are going to be running a business.
Being unemployed also means that our week ahead of us is pretty much unscheduled. Our kids have a few activities, music lessons etc. but other than that our schedule is completely open.
I'd like to do stuff, but stuff costs money. LOL...maybe I'll get some background work or auditions this week to keep me busy!
In the meantime I should probably work on selling off the stuff in my room downstairs that makes my fiancÚ call me a hoarder!!!
