Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Or so I have heard. And the rest of my life does not include the job that I just recently worked so hard to get. I could not do it, I could not take it, and I made yesterday my last day. I do not regret it in the least, but I am worried about finances, so I have to get my rear end in gear and find another, pronto. When I left there yesterday, I felt like a million pound weight had been lifted off of me, and although I know I have to do something quickly about a job, but that one was NOT the right one for me. I am not exactly proud of just leaving that way, yes---my momma did learn me better than that, but I felt like such a fraud, letting everyone there believe that I was going to be there long term. Aside from that, by the time I returned yesterday, my whole schedule had been re-done by the DM, and so much for time off for me this week, we are too short on employees, and I was having to loan mine to other centers. I knew that I could not work those hours again this week, so much for the rah-rah story about how I didn't need to schedule myself a million hours a week. Oh well, live and learn, right?
The apartment is really shaping up, and I have spent more than enough money to make it that way, thank heaven for credit cards...hopefully today I will be able to post a few pics, but probably not until I can get the internet problems straight----this is supposed to be a wireless community, and it is, if you want to do all of your computer work on the balcony. So, I am attempting to hard wire the main computer and then run the other two off of the router, but so far that isn't working, and I am so computer stupid that I don't know if I will be able to manage it. Janelle is/was supposed to help me with it, but I feel I have worn out my welcome in that department, as she is very cross and short with me about it. My biggest problem is that I have no printer that I can hook up to this laptop, the two we have are not compatible, and I need to print things for the ice cream store and other-business wise, so I don't know where that leaves me. This morning, I had to re-write my resume, as I had no way to send it from my main computer to this one, and I needed to email it out. So, enough of my problems...
I am in pain and barely able to walk this morning. I have done way too much, but I had to. It will be over soon, I hope. At least until the weekend, when we have to go back to the old house and finish it up, it is filthy and needs cleaned out of things that I did not want to bring here. I think my sister (Trav) is coming to visit on Sunday, and she will be here for a few days---at least I really hope so. (!!!!)
I will make it today to see each of you, heaven knows I have some time now. However, looking for a job is often the hardest job we can have. And here I am, doing it again. Save me! Have a great Tuesday! And here are a couple of shots of the apartment, as bare as it is..and a few other things, including the sunrise off of my balcony----
