Thanks for all the replies. Yes, our situation, while not desperate, is close enough to justify taking a job because I *need* it. However, I let it go. One other reason was that the job could last 1 day or months and months.
I'm getting discouraged and am putting up more housekeeping flyers, even though that's not going to help much with winter temporary work. I'll be advertising for holiday deep cleans, etc as well as regular clients. The money is good, but irregular. When I lived in Seattle, I would work at a particular bookstore nearly every season. It was easy just to call them up every October and start scooping up all the hours I could use. *Sigh*
I haaate looking for work...... it really is one of the least fun things we do in life, isn't it? Forever being judged, convincing people you really are a great choice. Ugh.
