Yes! I’ve got some good news! I have finally landed a job interview. It is tomorrow at 3 p.m. It is with a law office in Grand Rapids. It’s for a full time legal secretary position. And, they say you do not need any legal experience; they are willing to train. They just want someone that is a Christian and has office experience. I am both of those things. I’m so excited but also nervous too! I may be interviewing with three attorneys at once! And, to be honest, I don’t have a whole lot of interview experience because I worked at Meijer for so darn long (28 years).
Speaking of Meijer. This month marks one year since I was let go from there. The 3rd of the month, was the one year mark of being told I no longer had a job. The 31st is the one year mark from my final day with the company. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Time flies. And I can’t believe I sit here unemployed again. I am sad that I was unemployed for so long after Meijer. I blew through my 401K! That is what saddens me most I think. I wish I still had some of that money to fall back on.
I had my therapy appointment today. It was a little emotional. I talked about it being the one year mark since losing my job at Meijer. But that wasn’t the real emotional part. The really hard part was talking about the upcoming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. These will be the first as a single woman/mom. The idea is just gut wrenching to me. Granted, I do not want to be with him, but I also don’t like the idea of possibly being alone on those days either. My girls are pretty much daddy’s girls so it wouldn’t surprise me if they spend the day with him. I don’t know. I told her that if it turns out that I’m alone on that day, I’ll turn to my single online friends and see if they’re available to chat. And I’ll hop on Facebook too probably. I’ll spend the day on my laptop probably. That’s my guess. But who knows? I haven’t asked the girls yet what their plan was. Guess I’ll have to do that soon.
I went to Lake Michigan (Grand Haven beach) to do some reading today. I love going there as it helps reduce my anxiety and helps with my depression as well. Here are a couple pictures I took. It was quite windy and cold! Hence, the size of the waves.
Well, that’s pretty much all I got. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Michael. The devastation is just awful. God bless you all.
Wherever you are in this world of ours, I wish you peace, love and happiness.
