Well, I am back to work at both my part time jobs. I am upset that I don't have insurance coverage. I am applying for Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care. Whichever program fits my needs I guess. I have an interview for a full time job with decent benefits tomorrow. It seems the best choice for my current situation. I wish my health didn't fall apart and that I didn't need these followup appointments I have scheduled but I know I have worked to put a lot of tax money into the health care system so here is my chance to make good use of that.
I'm a little stressed about the follow up appointments as I am about the interview and my income challenges as a whole. I am wondering if the interview outfit I have lined up for tomorrow will cut it. I wish I could afford to pull it together a little nicer. I need my hair cut and styled and also need a new bag and shoes and a sweater or blazer or both. In an ideal world I guess. I will just make sure to practice my interview questions then. I will have to be hired for what I can offer to an employer and not just for appearance. That's a tall order in this job market. Especially at age 52.
My food plan is going O.K. I don't have it down to a science yet but I am getting more knowledge and managed to lose 2.8 pounds so far, all while learning to cook with way less salt. I made great pork chops the other night flavored with onion mushroom and just a tiny bit of salt.
