...wow, it's been a long time since I updated. Guess I should get to work on doing that, huh?

I've been applying to a lot of out-of-state jobs recently. I've had a bite on one; I was given an interview for a position in Minnesota, and am currently waiting for the results from that. I'm also sending out resumes to places in Kansas, California, some other Minnesota companies, and Ohio. I'll probably send resumes to some other states as well.

Iowa's economy is just really sucking, if I'm honest. I've applied for positions here, but there aren't many positions to choose from in the full-time and publishing-journalism-media categories. So I guess this means moving far away... which the folks aren't too keen on, but they understand why the hubby and I are looking into it.

We're in the process of fighting The Pointe and that debacle as well. The collection agency claims it's a valid debt, though they don't have all the information and are completely ignoring Iowa law. We'll see what happens with that, but I hope it finishes soon.

As for an update on Sierra the TerrorCat, she's doing wonderfully. She's been fixed, and we also finally got rid of the worms she had, so she's bulked up to a health 10-12 pounds or so, and has grown a couple inches in length. She's also rowdy as hell; the in-laws have nicknamed "Rumbledy-Thumps the WereCat" when she runs around upstairs, and it's a fairly accurate nickname. She's probably going to be ticked at me this evening, since I've been gone all weekend.

So what's going on in all of your lives? I wanna know!

Life kinda sucks right now, to be honest. Hate my roommate's boyfriend. First class pr*ck. (Hey, you asked and wanted to know how people's lives were. LOL)

What does kitty look like? Pictures, please?

Life is Blaaaaaaah. I do have a desk now, alas, my help (in the form of the neighbor kids) aren't home as promised to aid me in moving it in from the SUV right now, so I'm still sprawled.

Work is getting marginally better, or I'm getting resigned to my situation, can't tell which.

Ya wanna know what sucks about the whole economy/unemployment thing? Iowa's at it's highest rate of unemployment in 23 years, sitting at 6.7%, or thereabouts, and is still lower than the national average of 9.8% (or thereabouts). Blarg. I think I might be getting slightly interested in economics despite myself.

Actually, I know the national average is over 10% by now, and states like California are at 16% or so. We've shot up to 8% or thereabouts, if I remember right.

As for getting interested in economics, I think we have no choice but to do so in situations like this. Stupid economy. =_=

Ok. I was wondering because Rochester is where the ex-douchebag and ex-best friend took my son to, and had THEIR kid a month ago.
