I need some help, sort of long...

Well, I lost my job. I was offered a government job so I gave my previous job 2 weeks notice. The government rescinded the offer because I have a pending court case, they cannot hire you until after judgement. So I told my previous job, and they decided not to keep me, knowing I'd leave the first chance something more challenging and better paying came around. I've been out of work since Friday.

I have 2 kids, ages 6 and 2. I'm stuck at home all day with my 2 year old while my husband works full time and goes to college at night. I feel like such a loser. I've done a shitload of laundry and dishes and just been hanging out with my 2 year old, but seriously this isn't it for me! He knocks over my laundry and thinks its funny. He spits. He goes and plays in the bathroom. Messes everywhere.

I need a job. I've applied for almost everything that I can find online for accounting positions in my area. (cont)

  • (cont) I just want to drink beer and say fuck it. My son's not taking me seriously or listening to anything I say. He's so good at daycare too, I don't get it! I guess I can't believe that I'm not surviving staying at home with him, I've only been out of work for 3 days. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Check your state employment laws. In my state (MA)....after you give notice to leave employment, you have up until 24 hours prior to your last day to "rescind" your letter, and keep your job.

  • I've filed for unemployment, I don't want people to just hand me money. I want to work. I'm seeking employment. I guess I'm used to doing a great job and work and being rewarded, where as here I do something and my son just messes it up and makes me do it again. And it's menial crap, like laundry and picking up. Ugh.

  • I gave him crayons and paper while I was filling out applications and all he did was peel the paper off and throw it on the ground, and break the crayons and throw it on the ground. Another mess to clean up.

  • So why'd you have a kid if you couldn't stand him? He's just doing what 2 year olds do.
