Starting a new job today!

Monday, July 18, 2011

I thought that at my age and with a steady job I would not ever be job hunting or starting a new job again. . . I was wrong! The school I work at has been a year round school since I started working there 8 years ago. Well this past year our school (all the schools in Las Vegas) went 9 months. Ok, I could save some through the year and be ok. (I don't get paid when I don't work). And we had my husband's job. No problem, things might get tight, but it was going to be ok.

Well, not so much. Every time I was able to put a little away, my husband would gamble his pay check away and I had to use my stash to get by on. Much discussion, crying, pleading and asking went on all year. I finally told my husband that he had to stop the gambling and some other unacceptable habits and get some counseling or he needed to leave. Long story short, he chose to leave. The end of May. So, summer hit with nothing is savings and no income.

God is AWESOME, as promised He is meeting my every need. Until now the money has come together somehow, just in time. And now I have a job that I will enjoy, starting today, that can go to part time when school starts again. I am thankful that I found something I am going to enjoy! I will be working at Lakeshore. For all of you teachers out there, you will understand this if you are familiar with Lakeshore... when I walk in that store, I am like a kid in a toy store. I love the store and the merchandise they sell. So I know I will like the job! Anyway, today I start a new job. Wish me luck!
