Been up since 11:44pm found out yesterday I lost my job. I really wasn't upset to much. I am going to put in applications this morning after i take my child to school. Maybe in some sense I was not suppose to travel forty-six miles a day. I am a nurse and i took a job three months ago just passing medicine to elderly residents. I really liked the job but ya know sometimes the other employees can truly make you feel like crap. See, I was a new nurse but technically I was not a nurse or a CNA. I really was just a person that could not swing either way to fit in. Where I worked was a beautiful small town, where once you get to know the people that live there its good. Other life happened like my lovely child would not get use to going to school. So I took time off leave of absence for a week. Actually my employer was very nice about it. But life happens so down the tube went that job. I did have one small problem. I still have my east coast attitude and midwesterners don't understand it. What a problem, I get told I am rude and aggressive and I always say what people only think. I will miss my residents but like they say there is always someone to take your place. Anyway for now I am going to take it in stride and will write you later.

Well can you believe it. Its only been twenty hours later and I am back. This morning as I was taking my child to school. It hit me "I have no job to pay the bills. Can't get unemployment and welfare right now is out of the question. I really have to get motivated and figure it out. I got paid last Tuesday but I was going to have my friend pick my check up. But surely the way my life is nothing seems to go exactly as planned. So when I called my ex-job they told me I had to sign some insurance papers for cobra. Like i really can afford to pay the premiums. Oh well, I took my butt forty six miles up the road to get a one hundred and forty five dollar check. Ha Ha on a positive note that will cover some gas. That is before they REPO my car one week from tuesday. I was watching our President Obama on the news today fighting for our healthcare for all americans. I hope he achieves this goal even though people are always nervous about new things. People knew his platform was for change but and they voted for him. Now they mock him for doing and trying what the country really needs. Now I really ain't no poitical queen, but come on guys and gals back who ya voted for up. Anyway back to my "Day in Reality". I am doing laundry and my cats Cosmo is trying to play with my hand as I type. He's been needing alot of attention lately, worse than a man. I am going to set my lovely plan into action. The plan is to find all the places hiring make a list and start pounding the pavement Monday morning. If ya don't know what that means "looking for a job". Well guys gonna go, have a great day.

Today started okay, but as the day went on I had to give myself a pity party. Oh no, I told myself. Theres no need for this you just have to keep having faith that your going to get a job. Ya know it's scary, I have a little education but no one seems to be taking a chance on me. I did have a phone interview on friday. She asked me about my employment and I answered to the best of my knowledge. But when it was done she said I will pass your application on to human resources. Well I said to myself. What does that exactly mean? I have never done a phone interview, so is this good or bad. Guess I'll know i they call me for another interview. Tommorow morning I am going to call my old job up and grovel for it back. I just hope I don't feel too bad if the answer is NO. Well goodnight!

It really seems as though its been a fast but at the same time a slow week. I should be typing on this everyday. Well really did not get anywhere with a job this week. I think monday I have alot to do. I want to start a new thread and maybe tell you a real story that happened to I and my sister. But still thinking about that one. It would bring alot of shame to people that think that there the greatest thing on earth. They really never admit thier faults.
