I am feeling frustrated with Life this afternoon…for many reasons. But, before I get to this, I have heard from some of you who read my blog that I don’t seem to be writing much lately. I have discovered that this is because I no longer sit in front of a computer all day long. Granted I do spend some time on my computer each day but something always seems to call me away from actually writing. Maybe this will change in the future.

Back to frustrations. There are a few:

– I am frustrated because I am still unemployed. I want to be working but there aren’t any jobs out there. Actually there are jobs but I am over qualified for them and they have so many applicants, they tend to hire people who aren’t over qualified instead of me…who is over qualified.

– I’m a little frustrated because people keep asking me if I have found a job. I would think that I will be walking around with a big grin on my face and all bubbly and happy if I am gainfully employed again. Since I am walking around pretending to be somewhat happy but not really bubbly, that should be a good indicator that I am still jobless. Not to mention, since I tend to share news with the people I know, I will say when I am employed again. Asking me just reminds me that I am unemployed and it makes it very difficult to pretend to be happy.

– I am trying to design a new website for the church and I am not understanding Joomla. FRUSTRATING!!! Especially since I can usually figure things out pretty quickly. This also makes it difficult to pretend to be happy when I am feeling stupid because I can’t figure out Joomla.

– I am frustrated because my appetite came back. I was enjoying not eating and not feeling like eating. Granted I was deathly ill but I was losing weight and that made me happy. Now I am not longer deathly ill and I am back to struggling with my weight. Also makes it difficult to pretend to be happy.

– I am frustrated because the ABS light keeps popping on in my old dilapidated van and I don’t know why. Since I am essentially broke, I can’t take it in to find out why so I am frustrated.

So that is my frustrated list for today, Sunday, March 17, 2013. You would think that the fact that it is St. Patrick’s Day, someone would buy me a green beer or two or ten. That would relieve my frustration and probably make me happy. Until tomorrow morning when I would wake up hung over and bloated. And…not happy. So maybe that isn’t the best plan.

Anyway, now that I have written this down and posted it, I will leave my computer (and the Joomla frustration), go downstairs and read my book. Getting lost in a good story always makes me happy. And not the pretend kind of happy either.
