Yay, this is my year. Finally!!!

Thursday, January 21, 2016

Today I am celebrating. I took a casual job knowing the hours wouldn't be steady, but that in 11 months time a woman was retiring and I would get her job. Just getting a foot in the door to this company is very hard to do.
Fast forward 11 months and had to wait an agonizing time for her to decide, yes it's time to go, only to find out that the department has a new rule.
If there is less then 5 patients on the ward, the secretary goes home. emoticon They've been cutting her hours so much, the thought of her job scared the heck out of me. I put most my eggs in that basket. Now what?
One internal job I don't know why I even applied. It was only 24 hours a week and and was night shift. Got the call, went on the interview and they said, we also have a 32 hour position as well if you'd like. Holy cow!
Today I got the call from HR. I've been hired for the job in the evenings. Only staying two hours later then I currently work and I don't have to go in until 3:00, leaving the day open.

I've not had a full time job in a very long time. I nearly lost my house. I am literally waiting for someone to approve of a payment plan saying yes, you get to keep the house. Called my lawyer all excited today. He will pass on the word to the courts. I can't tell you how bad I needed this job. I've been working most of January filling in for someone. I never felt so good about myself.

My manager teased me about keeping off drugs for the week so I can pass the test & physical. Now that I've lost all this weight with Spark, I don't worry about physicals anymore. Bring it on!

yeah, I'm rambling, as I do with every blog I've written. ha! You should see how much I already deleted off of this post. emoticon

Thanks for the prayers.
