Sunday we went to church and they had a lunch too. Then we went to the graveyard where my father was buried.
Monday, I met with our employment "mentor" and she told me about a couple of possibilities of their sponsoring 1/2 of my payck if someone hires me. And there is a possible job at a Montessori Day CAre. I have to realize what I really enjoy and give up the idea of making the big bucks and be thankful to do something I really enjoy. I have really been realizing how much I like kids as my nephew has been visiting with his. Just because I miss my g.kids due to my d d's actions, doesn't mean I should just give up on enjoying kids, so at least I Have learned this.
Also a friend of mine's dd got a mat. leave contract to teach Gr. 1 this year, and I jokingly said she should call me when she needs a sub (I don't know this lady, only met her once) but she told her mom that she would call if I have my name on the list, so gotta get on that... I hadn't considered that school board because it's almost an hour drive, but then I realized driving my mother to the dr. today that one of their schools is only about 12 km. away, so gotta get busy... My Passport to Employment course is over, now I gotta do the legwork myself and get busy looking... I have learned I am not ready to sit around and do nothing, I need the stimulation of a job...
Today I awoke with a pain in my leg from my hip to below my knee around 6am. It's eased off as the day went on, but don;t know what I did, or if I even did anything. Played Auction with the ladies last nite.
Read an audio book on the weekend called, "Skinny Bitch" (is that going to stop the posting of this blog?) it wasn't really a diet book, well, not a losing weight diet book, but more an awareness of what happens in our food production facilities, they were very outspoken and made me laugh out loud more than a few times with their blatant comments, and their objective was to turn people vegetarian or vegan, and they were very convincing.... it's very horrid what happens to animals.
As for my own diet, it's very much on the back burner right now, yet another transition..
Now, I am reading a new Robin Cook book, "Death Benefit"... wow, very realistic, scientists creating body organs in the lab and then a financial group realizing what these new organs will do to prolong lives and the impact it will have on their life insurance business.. Compelling read!!
Cold here but no snow as threatened...yet! I did buy a little pair of gloves today though..
