Oh, Oh, Oh. I Think I’m Getting The Hang Of This Unemployment Stuff

January 16th marks one year of unemployment. I have gone through all the stages. The anger, the depression, the frustration and whatever the hell else I’ve gone through. Today I tried acceptance and went to the beach. On a weekday. In January. It was amazing. Warm and quiet. So peaceful. I relaxed more than I have in years. AND, I think I got a little tan!

And because Bear got me one of those little video cameras for Xmas you get to go with me. For a short visit. And yes, I realize I am a terrible videographer. I need practice that’s all.



New Year, Same Shit


Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going


  1. Ah, you got your guy to go, too! You wild & crazy kids.

  2. Good for you!! I love California beaches in the winter..
    I think you deserve midweek days at the beach :0)
    Those dogs must not like sand the way they are so content to sit still on the blanket! LOL!

  3. MacD

    Dad looks sad because I am not there to make him secret bloody mary’s…..

  4. The beach in a bathing suit in Jan? Yes that IS so Cal isn’t it. Tides have to change at some point!! My connection was so so so slow it would not load your video though. 🙁

  5. Oh if you have to be unemployed you just figured out the way to spend it! hehe 😀

  6. I’m glad you were able to let go for an afternoon and enjoy yourself Vix! You deserve a break!

  7. am glad you tried acceptance and had a great time at the beach, Vixen. hope everything will go well for you and your family.

  8. Oh how fun! I enjoyed seeing all of you. Yes, your dogs looked to be so good. You are so pretty!

  9. Let’s start a group of blogger beach babes. Not beach bums because, hell, we are babes. Let’s do it. Because life is good. No matter what the world slings at us, we can make it good.

    God bless.

  10. Definitely take some time to enjoy yourself. We are “enjoying” record cold and snow. I would love to go to the beach.

  12. I thought for a moment you have forgotten the 1 year unemployment issue there. Lol, the beach looks so tempting and so are you girls. Just more practice for taking videos and you could be a pro! 🙂
