|In Shades of Bittersweet|
I am feeling hopeful today, like I am actually getting somewhere. There were six openings in the school district for instructional assistants and I applied for them all, in addition to two Head Starts, several preschools, Kohl's, and Ulta. Don't judge me for the last two, this girl needs a job. For good measure I am also applying for nanny positions through a staffing company in Indy. *Deep breath* I have been busy. The people at Staples pretty much know me by name for as much faxing as I have had to do lately. Everything seems to be lined up as far as school goes. I will just be slipping in under the wire to start on the 22nd. I like cutting things close ;) Also, I have managed to scrape out some unemployment for myself finally. It turns out that they had my birthday wrong at the unemployment office and that is why I haven't been receiving any benefits. I promptly faxed them the proper documents and they actually called me back to thank me for not being an idiot. Apparently following directions is not the strong suit of most of the people they deal with.
I have also started some counseling with the pastor from my church. It's been nice to talk to someone on the outside of everything. I have felt somewhat spiritually shut off for a long time now. It was so hard to get involved spiritually with Keith because I was always so intimidated by him and never felt comfortable in the church setting. Sitting on a comfy couch in Pastor A's office while he talked to me about doors and scripture and the meaning we give to life, it was all very refreshing. Like it filled me up somehow.
Let's evaluate the day:
It's BEAUTIFUL outside!
I have enough change for a cherry slushy.
I have people who love me.
Yep, that's three good things in one day.
