new job

Well, I had a full day on the job yesterday. It was long. It had been almost 10 years since I worked an 8 hour day, not counting motherhood. I was lost, overwhelmed, and slightly bored. So many things to remember! Names, passwords, what to do when. The actual process of the job is pretty straight forward, but right now it seems like a lot of things to forget.

I drove home excited to be going home. Excited to see Jeremy & Anora. I when I got home I just crashed emotionally. The house was clean, Anora was getting ready for bed. All should've been right in Wilson world, and I got mad, and sad. Mad that I have to work at all, and sad that I'll still be doing this, or something like it for the next 4 years! I'll get over it, just an emotional day. I hate firsts of anything.

I woke at 3 when Anora made a noise. I tried for a while to go back to sleep, but alas it's 5: 30 when I write this.

Thank God, really I mean it!

Thanks to God, I got a job today.
It's for the local mega cable company, in the collections department.
I'll be on the phone all day. It's a 1/2 hour drive and my hours are 10-7 five days a week, so full time!! So it looks like I'll get the job of getting Anora off to school, and get the bedtime routine.

Thanks for all your prayers, I know I have many friends lifting my name to God. It's a huge relief to know we won't go hungry.

Blessings to you too.

no news

My last post was a bit depressing. I had a few interviews this week. I thought I'd hear from an empl0yer Friday afternoon. But I didn't, so apparently no one wants me to start working Monday morning. It's been quite a variety of jobs I've interviewed for this week.
Bookkeeper for a plumber, I was turned down by the end of the morning for that one.
Accounts Payable for a implement dealership.
A helper for a preschool teacher.
And a 3 year old preschool TEACHER, not helper.
The A/P position appears to be huge, and intimidating, and the 3 year old teacher seems like a lot of pressure. I'd take anything offered, but I don't feel good about any of them.
I should be hearing from a bank and a hospital yet next week about some jobs I applied for a while ago. And I keep putting out more applications.

I looked back on this blog and realized I've been job hunting 3 months hard.
I'll keep you up to date. Please pray I go where God wants me.

Still nothing!!!

Well I've had a lot of interviews. Nearly one per day. But I keep getting rejections. I'm way beyond taking it personal. Yesterday was one for a plumbing company, I really wanted it, but understood why they went with someone else. Today was a preschool job. I'm kinda hoping they go with someone else, it's a lot of pressure, and not much money. I figured out though, the best job I could get will still only be 1/2 of what Jeremy ever earned.

Jeremy has been super though. I'm glad he's home. I could easily lose it if he were not. He's been cleaning and sharing the cooking. And I know he can just stay with Anora. He had to work 1 more day yesterday though, so my parents watched Anora for the morning.

This just sucks. I'm discouraged enough to look at alternatives, but don't know what that would be yet.

Pray for Jeremy and Anora not to give up on me.
