Seven More Days…

Seven more days until the 16th! The 16th is a good day! My friend J is coming out from Texas, so we are meeting up for dinner. I have a counseling appointment with an awesome counselor. AND that is the end of the poetry contest I entered, so I should find out shortly after, that I won. I’m trying all the visualization stuff, people are always talking about. I am visualizing a check with $1000 dollars written on it in my name. I am picturing my poems in the magazine, as the winning person. I’m also praying that I win. It’s been a couple months since I’ve been working, and I could really use the money to pay some extra bills. I could also use the “being published” part. That way when I get my books finished, it will be easier to get an agent, so that I can publish my books. I know I could self-publish, and that’s good for those that do, but I feel like if my things are good enough to be published, then I should be payed to have it done, rather then having to pay for it myself. I also am not motivated enough to go through with self-publishing.

So seven more days until the day comes!!!

Love & Peace

Been Away…

I’ve been in one of those moods again, where I don’t have anything to say. I would say I’m coming out of my slump, but am just not feeling up to writing or reading much. So haven’t even done a lot of reading of other blogs lately. I’ve been binge watching Lost a lot. Then on Friday, I went to hang out with my friend G. She has a large library of movies, so I borrowed 5 and watched 4 of them over the weekend. She is planning on bringing more to church, so I can trade them out.

This morning I made a broccoli quiche. I’m not much for cooking, as it stresses me out. I bought the ingredients last week, and procrastinated until this morning. So now it’s in the oven, and smells delicious! And I didn’t get as stressed out this time. Of course GR cut my onion and garlic for me, so that helped a lot.

I messed up and overdrew my bank account. I thought something had already come out, but it hadn’t. So thought I had more money then I did. And then since I haven’t been working yet, I was kind of panicking. Bills will start coming out in 4 days. So I asked my church if they could help me. Then my Aunt A has also agreed to help me out some. So I should be good for a little while. Hopefully I will hear about my drug test this week. Then I can start working.

And now the rest of the day I’m just chillin’. I will be going to my friend D’s house, before church, and hanging out.

Drug Test

This morning I had to go fill out the new hire paper work, and take a drug test. The drug test was one they give there at work. Then it shows up on the side of the cup, if there are drugs in your system. I didn’t even think about the fact that eating a bagel with whole poppy seeds for breakfast would effect it. I didn’t even think about it until the test tested positive for opiates. So now they have to send the test to the lab, which could take at least a week. So the job has to wait until after that.  I wish I would have remembered that poppy seeds can have that effect, and I would have had something else for breakfast. I am feeling very defeated!

New Job

Yay! I pretty much got the job. I will be working at another Assisted Living Facility as a caregiver. I just have to pass the background check and pee test. And if I don’t pass those, there’s something wrong. I could be starting as early as Friday or Monday. I’m kind of hoping for Monday, then I can start out on a fresh week. I will also get Sunday’s off for church, which was a BIG deal for me. I will also get to start out part time and then go to full time. This is also a good thing. Then I can get into it without being stressed to the brim right away. This is the best thing for me right now. I am really excited as the manager that interviewed me was really awesome! Now I just have to wait for the call for paper work portion. Whoo-Hoo!

Getting A Lot Done

Today, I’ve got a lot going on and I’m not quite half way done with my list. A lot of things going on around the house, then meeting with my pastor/friend, S. After I meet with S I have an interview at another assisted living facility. I was going to try to transfer to the facility, with same company I was working for, up near me, but they didn’t have any care-giving positions available. So I signed up for CNA classes but nothing has come about with those yet. Then my housemate met a woman that works at this other facility. C said she seemed really cool and flexible, so I called her today. I meet with her this afternoon, anytime after 3 pm. So I will head over there, after S’s. I will fill out an application and then meet with this other woman for an interview. Not sure if it’s the main interview or if it’s just kind of a meet and greet thing. Anyway, so I updated my resume and it’s ready to go with me.

Now it’s time to go do sweeping and mopping, and then I will be over half way done with my list. YAY!!!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
