Now What?!

stones-1372677_640(1)Exactly, now what?

I've been through so many twist, turns and changes I don't know which way is up. Seriously, y'all know.

Just about the time I think things are going to level off and another monkey wrench gets thrown into the pot. I lost my job yesterday, was actually fired. I bet I haven't been fired since I was in my 20's!

Why, you ask? Because I didn't meet their "specifications" for the production floor. I had actually been in training since the end of March when I started this circus. Took them this long to realize this? I don't think so. I wasn't their type of employee. Their type is young, immature, smart mouthed, unprofessional. Need I go on? They looked at me like I was from Mars and treated me like their grandma. Seriously. Also, there was so much stress involved in "who will make it, who won't" that I developed a nasty case of shingles again.

So what now and where do I go from here? Off hand I want to say who knows? I had already began looking for another job so I will continue. Hopefully it will be something closer to home so I don't have to drive so far, even if it's lower pay. Less stress would be nice. I know, listen to my wish list. I'll also file for unemployment and see how that goes. I heard through the grapevine that the Employment Security Commission calls them constantly to verify applicants.

Well, first thing I have to get well. I'm already feeling better but it's a slow healing process. After that, I plan to continue working on some home projects. I had gotten absolutely nothing done on my room because I was physically and emotionally exhausted from that job. I'm thinking of putting out an "official" blog about my home projects, complete with pictures. What do you all think? I could include pictures. (I'm hoping the end result will be much better than what it looks like now lol.) I could also  in some recipes, DIY tips, just thinking of something productive.

I did apply for financial aid for school and am registered for one online class, but if I don't get the funds it won't happen right now. Due to lack of a job, there's a lack of funds. So I'm batting around ideas, and I have a good friend who also is an  author and I'd like to get her input on the blog.

I feel like this job loss was a blessing in disguise. From the day I began that job, I felt it was probably a stepping stone. Unfortunately, I just don't feel as secure about things as I once did. Job security seems a thing of the past, as are so may other things. I'll get there, I know I will, but I sure do miss my guy in my corner (aka Daddy) I sure do miss him.

I've missed everyone here too. It seems everything went by the wayside and I feel like I'm playing catch up.
