After Rita.....(it's not a margarita but an after-rita)

Well, we have our power back, my pretty plants are back out where they belong. Most of Houston won't totally re-open until tomorrow, which to me is silly. It is horribly hot again, the heat index expected to be 115 degrees. Just like yesterday. I have heard of people in some parts not having their power back and in this heat, that is deadly. The worst thing for us on that level is that our cable cuts out now & then.

These are the things that Houston will have to address because had the city been hit straight on like originally thought, we'd be crippled. Look at how badly things are right now with:

-getting power restored
-getting businesses back open & running
-getting water to people
-what was up with that bottle-neck when folks were evacuating? that was really bad. I'm not kidding when I say traffic sucks here.

on a personal note, I am depressed. I was supposed to start working at a new position (albeit a temp one) and left my old assignment to go. Well, they STILL don't have me set up to work (had I known that, I wouldn't have left so soon) and nobody seems to know when I'll get my approval to start working. I have a house to pay for and my car needs new tires, the belts are showing through! My biggest complaint is that ever since I moved here, I can't get regular work, no one will touch me. I'm stuck being a temp which sucks ass. I have skills, a degree and experience and I can't get hired into a regular job. Am I the only person with this problem? Is there no one else who suffers like this? It's unbelievably ridiculous. I want to work! I'm honest and reliable! I complete my tasks!!! I don't goof off talking on the phone all day or to co-workers! I just don't get it. I'm likeable too! I get along with people! Sorry for the rant, I'm just frustrated and depressed. These things make no sense to me and I don't know how to fix it.
