I'm sorry that I haven't been around as much as I would like. My life has taken a huge turn for the unexpected and I haven't been able to be on SP as much as I am usually.
Here is a little update- I was hired as a nanny. I hated it. I was hired to take care of an autistic boy. Well, it seems as if the mother had other plans for me. She wanted me to be at her beck and call. She made a contract that really only benefited her. She was not very happy when I refused to sign it. I even went as far as to take it to a lawyer who told me to run for the hills concerning that job. The job was supposed to be 35 hours, then it dropped to 25, then to 22. She was making it impossible for me to get another part time job. Then she fired me. I can't say that I was upset by this. I was looking forward to telling her I quit but it worked out well. I was then interviewed for a crisis hotline clinician at the local mental health center. I am there now and enjoy it. It is part time as well. I am trying to get a full time job still. Through all of this I have decided that I need to go back to school to get my Master's degree. Now, I'm just waiting to hear back from the school's representative. It's been over 3 weeks- time for another call.
Along the way some personal problems have popped up. I really hope that they can be fixed. Thank you to all of you for being my sparkbuddies and sending your support. I appreciate it.
