First time in many years that I have had > 7 days off in a row (except for breaking my leg several years ago). This is my 8th unemployed day. I've noticed that all the people I interact with are much nicer. I'm not silly enough to believe that everyone else in the world suddenly changed, it MUST be me. Am I being nicer?? I think so. I know I'm smiling more. It was SO time to leave that job. I am suitably freaked out that I do not have a job yet. I know for sure I will have SOMETHING that pays money within 1.5 weeks. I have checked my bank account repeatedly to re-assure myself that we will be o.k. The money from the truck sale is helping give a little cushion. Unfortunately, my paid off credit card is not so paid off any more. That will get fixed. I am writing cover letters, learning about the changes in job hunting over the last 11 years, and getting all my paperwork together for the temp nursing agencies. I was going to try to get scrubs from GoodWill or ARC but I wated too long. Checked 3 stores Friday and there wasn't much choice because people had cleaned them out for Halloween.
In addition, I've managed to get ALL the dirty clothes off my closet floor. Haven't done that in many months. I'm about to finish the last 2 loads today. I gave up on my camera, found a good sale and got another one. Not a good choice when I don't have any money coming in... Good choice for blogland though. There will finally be pictures back in my blog.
In the spirit of BREATHE... smoking stops tomorrow. This seems a good time. New car that I don't want to smell like smoke and applying for jobs that are not smoking compatible. I don't have to worry about alcohol interference because it's not in the budget. Also, my CPR class confirmed all my worst fears about my current physical condition. It was pitiful. I just can't present myself to patients as a nurse, like this. Besides, one month of cigarettes will pay for that new camera.
So, here we go again!! Last time!! Me & You Together.
Hope all is well. Thanks for hanging in with me while I was maxed out at the end of the job.
Take care and be gentle with each other. I'll keep you posted.
