A week in the life of a job-hunting mom: Day 3

Today was one big ole’ waste of time, and I was one big ole’ waste of space. No timeline to report here, just a disgusting definition of pure Sloth.

I woke up late and dragged my ass all morning because I hadn’t yet bought new K-cups. My bad.

I spent a majority of the day in my PJ’s, because – why bother dressing? I didn’t have plans to go anywhere, so what was the need to look human?

Instead, I just hung around the house with Dude. We played tickle monster. We blew raspberries on each other’s bellies. We watched movies. We cooked. We did laundry. We colored. We cuddled on the couch. We built epic train sets. We laughed. And when Little Woman came home from school, she joined in the fun.


Yes, I did actually spend an hour actively combing the job sites, sent out a resume or two at most. Yet I didn’t feel guilty, because I was busy being a mom. And most days, that’s the coolest, most rewarding job in the world.

I will, however, own the job-hunting world tomorrow. Like a boss.
