Today is a good Monday, and it's not even 11am.

I've been so worried about having no cleaning jobs. It's really messed me up, physically and emotionally. This morning, I got a call from school, and I was offered a substitute teaching position one day this week. It's just one day, and hopefully I will get more, but I am SO GLAD I called last week and asked to be put on the sub list! Holy cow! What if I hadn't done that?! I wouldn't have gotten this call. It's only Monday, and I've already been asked to work. Whew. What relief. I hope I get called more.


I've also made plans for later in the week, to go to the pool with my SILs and nieces, and I'm even going out to lunch with a friend. We've decided to go to Wendy's. Since I'm essentially out of work, I am on a VERY tight budget, so I wanted to take advantage of their dollar menu. I also looked at their menu online, and I've already decided what to get: a small chili, a garden side salad with lite ranch, and a diet drink.

This morning, as I was lying in bed, drinking coffee and watching TV, I had the sudden urge to get back on my diet and exercise plan. I am READY. I'm excited to take on this week, and I'm DETERMINED to make it GOOD. Not just with my dieting, but in every area. I really need to keep my attitude as positive as I can, so that positive things will happen.

Oh, speaking of being positive, I talked to my SIL this morning. She had an interview at my school this morning, and she said it went really well. I hope she gets the job. I would like to work with her, even though I'd probably never see her there, lol. I just know she could really use this job and she would be really good at it. I'm happy for her. I hope everything works out.

So, yes. Here's to a POSITIVE and GOOD week!


**EDIT** I just checked my email and I have an every-two-weeks cleaning, and I start this week! So that's GREAT NEWS!!! I'm so excited now! Yes Man! Yes Man! Yes Man!

**EDIT #2** I got another cleaning scheduled for the first week in July! A big one, and it pays $200. In four days, I'm going to make almost the same amount that I'd get paid at school in two full weeks of working. That is stupendous! I'm very excited and feel so much better about things. I hope I can get lots more cleanings scheduled for the rest of July and August.
