I'm kinda disappointed in myself for not being able to do better at this part-time job I'm supposed to have. I always try to do my best; although I'm honest enough with myself to know that sometimes I make mistakes. I have not gotten a phone call at all to come into work this week. And that doesn't help my self-esteem at all.
But, I am staying busy by trying to get new Avon customers and applying for as many jobs as I can. I met with my counselor at Michigan Rehabilitation Services yesterday and she gave me suggestions on where else to look for jobs. (She also agreed with me that it doesn't look good when my hours keep getting cut. ) I went for a job interview last night - one that I didn't feel went well, but I'm not sure I can clean houses with my back issues anyway. I had one company email me a lot of questions for me to answer yesterday. It wants to do a phone interview tomorrow at 12 noon. I have a typing test scheduled with the county tomorrow at 2 pm. (My luck my boss will call and want me to come in tomorrow - sorry!)
I take breaks from the computer by getting out with my Avon books. I take breaks from both of them to either clean a room well or work on an afghan I'm making as a present. The only thing I believe I need to do is to get a little more time to spend with family and friends. I know it's not good to spend my days with just my grandkitty - although we do have some pretty good conversations, they tend to be a little one-sided.
I have been talking with or emailing my daughters a little more than I had been, which is good. I miss them terribly and can't wait to see them again. I'm just not sure when this will be possible, as the only one with the most money doesn't have the time. And with us in three locations instead of just two, the logistics are a little more complicated. We will somehow manage to work it out somehow. It will just take a little more time and money.
