Well I lost one of my jobs tonight. Not through any fault of my own or my employer; the company that my employers work for was bought out and of course that screws everything up and hence, my employer has to lay all her workers off.
Quite honestly, after the night I had tonight, I'm glad to be rid of it. I've done my time cleaning toilets. I've got the job at the pet store, so that's a step in the right direction career-wise; tonight as I was spending my time being numb I was of course thinking. It was productive thinking for once, too
It's not like I'm poor or without a job; I just got hired at the pet store. I was thinking of places around town I could apply and thought of this one place that sells clothes... then while we were cleaning (woo only two more weeks!!) the employment place I of course looked at there job listings and lo and behold, this place I was thinking about earlier is right there, hiring part time; I think Somebody's telling me something o.O
It's kind of a pain, but whatever, I hate cleaning up after people who are too lazy to bother picking up after themselves. I HATE cleaning toilets, that is the one thing that I will not do when I'm married. I will do his dishes, I will do his laundry if he doesn't get it too gross; I will NOT clean the bathroom, he will, and it will be spotless.
Anyway, so then we had to go driving all over town because everything was messed up with the schedule of the guys at one of the buildings. This is the fourth or fifth time I've had to go driving around town because of this stupid job. I can't GO anywhere without having to fill up on gas more than once a month. My employers have been more than good to me but there comes a time when a person has to move on. In a way this is a blessing because it gives me a reason to go find another job.
Then, the guy that I worked with up and quit on me. Another building to do and he quit on me. He's been a creep since August, but I never thought he would up and quit on me like that. My employer's foreman (who ALSO was laid off, he's worked for her for YEARS, but he can't really be mad at her, cause it's not her fault) helped me, and I'm eternally grateful to this guy, he's so fantastic; I'm really going to miss working with these people, but at the same time I AM looking forward to the next chapter of my life.
Two months ago I would have been sunk in the depths of depression and here now I'm looking forward to the future. I think optimism is becoming a habit
I'm going to go riding tomorrow, my niece wants to go so we probably will. It'll be cold, but I need to go. I really wish I could go on my own, but I can't *sigh*
and then He created the horse...
