My Daughter's Birthday

Friday, April 01, 2011

My baby daughter is 29 today. I honestly don't know where all the years went. But I do know that she has given me a lot of great and special memories. I am so glad that I have her!

Tired and Uncertain

Thursday, March 31, 2011

My working 6-10 pm and habit of getting up early is definitely making for a tired me. But, I know it only will last up to 3 more days, so I know I'll make it.

I got offered a job at a call center. The bad thing about this job is that I've heard it can be a lot of work. And it only pays $8 an hour - not enough to pay my bills. But...it will at least be a little money coming in until I can find something else. Plus, I wouldn't start my training until April 11, so I do have a week to see what else comes up. I need some good luck and wishes sent my way.

The Tide May Be Turning

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

I went on one interview yesterday for a job that would last 3 to 5 days - 4 hours a night (6 - 10 pm). I got it! That really made me feel a little better, especially since I had just put my last $20 in the gas tank!

The second interview I went on yesterday called me back for a second interview today. This is the first 2nd interview I've had in a loooong time! The job only pays $8 an hour, but it would be money coming in until something better came along. And it's not too far from the house. Crossing my fingers!

I have another interview this morning for a job even closer to my house. This job pays the best and I'd really like to get this one. BUT, I don't want to get my hopes up. The competition out there is fierce!

It is nice to have a little hope as far as the job market goes. It's been awhile since I've had it that I don't quite know how to handle it. I will just enjoy it and hope for the best.

And a call back for a second intereview, that sounds so positive... I kknow what a wonderful thing it is to work close to home. I leave for work at 8:15 and it starts at 8:30 and I have lots of time. I did just put in for a transfer, see what happens...

Hoping All Goes Well

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I have two job interviews today and one tomorrow. One of the interviews today is for a job that will only last 3-5 days, so I'm not sweating that one too much. But I am sweating the other ones. I went over my notes from a job interview seminar that I attended last night hoping to prepare myself a little more and calm my nerves. Although it was beneficial, one paragraph stuck out like a sore thumb. It said that when people comment about how I may be overqualified for the job, it may be a subtle form of age discrimination. I've heard that line quite a few times. It's got me wondering....

    It could just mean that they would have to pay you more because you have more experience. That's not always a negative. Keep your head up and best of luck to you!! Remember to smile!

New Week Ahead

Monday, March 28, 2011

It's a new work week. I promised myself to spend at least 3-4 hours every day hunting down jobs. I also promised myself that I won't let the process get me down. I'm not sure how I'm going to keep my spirits up, but at least I will try my best.
