Yesterday was my day to feel like I was doing everything backwards. So, as hard as I tried, I didn't finish half of what I had intended to finish. This means half is now today's work.
A lot of people know that I have been back in Michigan almost two months and am looking for a job and, just in general, things to do and people to do things with. I've been looking and slowly planning.
Today, I can honestly say I have a busy, full day. It's now 7:15 am. I have the last batch of oatmeal cookies in the oven. My bed's made, a load of clothes is done and put away, and I've done my exercises.
I've got to call the employment agencies that I'm signed up with to let them know I'm still seeking employment. There are applications to print out, fill out and deliver. This needs to be done at the library, as I don't have a printer. I've got to pass out Avon books to and from the library in hopes of getting orders.
My girlfriend and I have been wanting to meet for lunch forever now. We finally set a date - today. I haven't seen her in two years and I really am anxious to see her.
I'm going to an Avon Open House after that. I've never been to one. Iwant to see how it's run to find out if it's something I should try eventually. I don't have enough customers yet to have one now. At this point, I'm looking for any way to add them. I placed a disappointing order last night.
To top out the night, my daughter, her friend and her son and I are going to a free "Movie Under the Stars" at a local park. It's free, there's supposed to be vendors and a band before the movie, and the movie is "Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs". (Hence the girlfriend's son...)
It's all or nothing for me. I am either desperate for something to do or trying to figure out what to do first. Right now, I accept this. I know I feel better about myself here than I did in Alabama. I'm taking that as a sign that I am making progress.
