Brainstorming. in Since OD is shutting down....

I’m thinking about what I want to do. I think school would be a good idea because I don’t want to end up working at crap jobs forever. I spent 7 years at a job making minimum wage, no insurance, no paid vacation, no raise, and an absolute ass load of problems with scheduling. I am absolutely terrified of ever ending up at another job like that again. I see my counselor tomorrow where we are going to talk more about school and what my options are.

The stress just doesn’t stop at all. My daughter had her check up today where her weight is a bit of a concern and I’m now going to start making some diet changes. I want to cut out sweets and fast food. She is pretty active but we definitely could get outside a bit more and I want to work on portion sizes. The doctor gave me plenty of tips and did talk about boundaries. He mentioned her flu shot where she adamantly said no. Nevertheless, she got her damn flu shot. I would rather just get it done and not have to worry about her coming down with the flu all winter.

I’m waiting for my taxes. I filed my amended return in July and the website said it’s been completed. I received a letter stating that I should get it sometime this week so I’ve been diligently checking the mail everyday. I get annoyed if there isn’t mail because that means either I just didn’t get anything or it hasn’t come yet.

I have spent a good portion of the morning cleaning. The house looks good so now I’m taking a break. I want to start looking for a job and whenever I go on it gives me job openings that are really far away. We have a Facebook page I could post in but I’m worried who could see it. I hate having to be such a private person but there’s people around here that I’d rather not know my personal business. I know my kid’s SD has multiple Facebook pages where he’s still lurking.

I’m still getting used to my daughter going to school and realizing that it’s going to be a consistent thing. It’s like a whole different world. It’s honestly not easy to adapt to as I’m used to having my child 24/7, but I like that I’m going to have my own time to get a job, possibly get back into school and start working on myself.
