I slept pretty good last night, and I'm glad for that. I have been having some issues with my sciatic nerve, so this morning I decided to try something different. Instead of going for one long walk, I divided it up into twos. It did seem to help the pain in my upper leg.
I need some new goals in my life. I've been thinking about it for the past couple of days and haven't come up with any goals other than the ones I'm working on - my weight and health and getting a job. I'm getting nervous knowing I am getting low on my money.
I have been selling Avon just to see if I could get some extra money and meet people. I got my second order today. One lady's order was really screwed up and I hated to have to tell her. Only one of her three items came in. The other two won't be in for at least two months. When I brought her the item that came in, she realized it wasn't exactly what she needed. So...I will be learning how to do returns quickly. I really don't want to be sitting on a lot of inventory when I don't have any money. At least the lady was understanding, thank goodness. I still have a bunch of orders to deliver, but no one's home.
My job search is getting really challenging and I am getting discouraged. Some companies want you to jump through hoops just to get a chance to get an interview. Other companies are just scam artists. One said it was a company that needed customer service help for security systems that it sells. I went to the interview only to find that the company sold very expensive knives, wanted me to buy the demo, and said we had to drum up business by word of mouth. Another company wanted me to help middle class families set up budgets. Again, it was work of mouth advertising and I would need to pay for my credit check and training books. The families didn't get charged anything for the service, so I have yet to figure out how I was supposed to make money.
I just pray that something comes up soon.
