Slight set back

I had my meeting with the lady who watched me work at the assessment, I was right they really do want to have me work for them, the problem is they don't have the funding for me yet. But their fiscal year ends on June 30th and more grants come in after that so hopefully they will have the funds then. I have decided to hold off looking for a job till July, that way if they do have the funds they can hire me on. If not I will start looking for other places to get hired on at. I'm not going to get my hopes up cause it would just crush me if I didn't get the job. I figure I will either call them once every couple of weeks just so they don't forget about me or continue to volunteer there. I put in a call yesterday there about continuing volunteering and am just waiting for the lady to call me back, I figure if I don't hear from her by Tuesday I will call back. Not to be a pest but just to see. Richard and mom are ok with me holding out till July cause they both know that I would like to work there and that it would be a good fit for me. Although if mom keeps hounding me about it I will go mad. I know she is just doing it to remind me to do stuff for the job but I get so frustrated and stressed by her nagging me about it all the time that I end up putting to much stress on myself and that leads to me getting sick.

Richard and I have worked out twice at the gym so far, it would have been more but I woke up dizzy a few days ago and am just now back to being myself but we are for sure going tonight to work out. I'm not going to let things that keep coming up get in my way of working out.

I am also no longer working for Richard's dad long story short, there was a supposed complaint about me an I am no longer allowed on the job site. How much of this is actually true I don't know but I'm not going to worry about it. I am still a little ticked off by it cause I don't know if he is telling the truth or lying to me about it and that he just doesn't want me working for him. Richard has also stopped working with his dad. More due to the fact that he is having a hard time getting up in the mornings from working so much so he runs late to his actual job. I also think a lot of him not working for dad has a lot to do with the fact that this isn't the first time I have been told after working with dad for a while that I can't show up and work because of a complaint,. How is it that I'm the only one to ever get complaints out of all of us who are working there it's always me? Richard is fed up with it as well, this just goes with the feeling I have that his dad really just doesn't like me. I have had this feeling for almost 6 years now. So there has to be some truth to it.

I have been reading a lot of books again. I right now am reading Burned by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast and I am also reading The Secret of Excalibur by Andy McDermott. After those two I still need to read 9th Judgment by James Patterson and The Covenant of Genesis also by Andy McDermott then I am caught up with new releases till about Mid May. I also have to finish the Cirque Du Freak series which I have 4 books left to read in, plus the Vampire diaries which I have one book left to read in that one cause I don't have the next one in that one yet.

The Next Step of a new year = a new me

Yesterday Richard and I decided that we needed to join the gym again, so last night Richard and I drove over to Planet Fitness and signed up again. When we originally joined we went on quite a regular basis, then he went on over nights and we just got out of the habit of going, so we canceled the memberships and I personally had regretted it ever since. In just a few minutes we will be getting ready to go do our first work out. I am excited about going, yes you read that right I am excited about working out. I do better if we go to the gym then trying it on my own at home and trying to convince Richard to go for a walk. We will start going every other day then work up from there. I have weighed myself this morning so I will be able to keep up on how much weight I have actually lost.

The work assessment is over, I think it went really well. The reason I say this is because they want to hire me to actually work there. Which is totally cool, cause I loved working there and all the people are really nice and its a laid back work environment. It's just up to the lady who had to assess me on the job and to DVR if i can work there. I am so hoping they let me work there. If not I think I will quit working with DVR. I would be a temp but I'm fine with that. It would be part time but I would be paid to work there instead of volunteering my time. So that's another thing going right this year in a new year = a new me. This is so MY YEAR!!!!

Glitter in the air

As requested here is some details about the job I am doing for 3 weeks so I can get the assessment and actually get a job that pays me. I am working at CHD which stands for Center of Human Development. I am basically just learning the ins and outs of basic office work. I am in the middle of a project. Well in all honesty I am filing papers for the Behavioral clinic that they have there. I am over half way through the papers and have two paper cuts. All the people there are super nice and I am so far enjoying working there. On the first day I got a tour of the building was filled in on a bit of what they do and started helping my supervisor get her papers organized, this is another on going project for us. The second Day I was at a research meeting for my 4 hours of work and let me tell you I was bored to tears. But I manged to stay awake through the whole thing. So all and all I survived my first week and am actually looking forward to going back there on Tuesday and start all over again.

Today I finally got to the tailor and my pants are being altered so I can wear them and not look like a child playing dress up in their parents clothes. They will be ready on Monday, then I will take a picture of me in one of my office attire outfits and let you all see me all spiffed up.

I am actually enjoying myself, I figured I would be a nervous wreck and not enjoy the job. It's not as structured as I thought it would be but so far it's not bad either. I think I would like a little bit more structure though, I need to know what I am doing when I walk in there everyday so I don't get freaked out. I think I chose wisely when I decided to do a back office kind of job, away from lots of people but still around people at the same time. Not having to work with the general public or answering phones. I just hope we can find a place that needs a person like me. I also hope that I can manage the next two weeks and not get stressed out. It would be sweet if CHD could hire me but seeing as how they are a non profit I doubt that will happen.

I can now TOTALLY understand how my mom feels about having to come up with and cook dinner after getting off of work. I am only working 3 days for 4 hours a day but still when I get home I just want to relax and not have to do anything. I think on the weekends I will decide what we are having for dinner during the week so all I have to do is come home change and make it. Which will be better then coming home and having the what's for dinner debate every night, I can just say oh we are having this for dinner if you like it or not. :-)
