Well, I hear changes are good for you. I will let you know, but right now it does not feel very good. I got fired again, from the same job...that's twice in six months. :o(
This time it's permanent. I got the boot. I am really angry and hurt that after eight years of being there through the good and the bad that as soon as it gets good again, I am tossed out.
I am not sure what to do. I am in shock right now and frightened by the financial outlook. Hubby and I were relaxing and just bought a new to us car with part of the cost financed. I just made the first payment. I am not sure how we will pay our June mortgage. We had decided we could afford a vacation, the first in years. We used our airline miles to buy two tickets to Maui for September. I just can't believe it!
So I am out on the employment trail at 51. I will be competing with kids graduating from college and other young people. Who will want to hire a fat, old woman?
I am really sorry to share my pity party with you all. Your blogs are a solace for my soul. I look to you all for some sort of hope and positive influence. I know things will turn around for us. We have a loving family and friends for support. Today looks bleak but tomorrow will look better.
In an effort to make any additional money possible, I have decided to have advertisements on my blog. I will be working with Dogtime Media and will have only dog or pet related ads. The people at Dogtime are very friendly and helpful and I feel that I will be able to advertise in a tasteful manner. I hope you won't mind too much. I promise, no pop ups, nothing racy or crass.
I will be back on Monday with a better outlook. I need to work through my anger and grief before I can get on with looking for a new job and writing about happier subjects.
Thank you all for being the best cyber-pals a woman could have.
