- I get up every day and take Betsy to school, unless Vic walks her to school. When I get home around 8:00a, I start my job search activities.
- Morning job stuff takes about 2-3 hours. I have a few meta-sites I use to search jobs, plus I get automated e-mails from some of them. And I have friends and network contacts that are pretty consistently e-mailing me leads. Finally, I get an odd recruiter or two that asks for information.
- Afternoons find me tapering down the job search, and putting in another 2 hours or so. People use the cliche "finding a job is a full time job", but I've found that it's really a 4-6 hour per day job. It's heavily front-loaded when you're creating resumes and getting your job search muscles toned up, but once you're ready, it's not too bad. Of course, if you're traveling and interviewing, that's a different story.
- For exercise, I either get up early and run, or I try to get some riding in. Yesterday I jumped out for a quick 17 mile ride, with some intervals in the middle. The wind was NUTS down here. My guess is 20+mph, with gusts close to 30mph. I'd give you the link but Garmin's MotionBased site is getting flakier and flakier. Terrible performance for a pay site. Oh yeah -- I averaged 20 mph over 17 miles, with lots of the ride into the wind. Pretty happy with my solo speed for this ride.
- I'm tentatively planning a long ride for Friday. Gonna try to ride with Piojo and Dutch, but forecast looks a little chilly and rainy for the RGV. We'll see.
That's all I have time for right now. Vic and I are going to school for a picnic lunch with Betsy. Can't do that if you're employed (at least not easily)!
