Getting Fired

On Monday I will lose my job.  It's okay. I knew this day was coming.  I have been preparing  for this  for a long time.   I just didn't think it would be here so quick.   I enjoyed my job.  Every day was different from the last.  Some days were more fun than others, but all in all, I loved my job. My day would start early, end late and there was a ton of overtime. I didn't make very much money.  In fact, I never got a paycheck.  I never complained, well not loudly enough to be heard.  Ha Ha

  I have been a stay at home Mom since Feb. 15 2006.  I was in the restaurant biz for over 20 years.  Worked every position.  Serving and tending bar were my faves.  I made great $$$$.  There's only one problem..... I can't go back.  I would not last a day, probably not an hour.  I served and over-served people on a daily basis.  Mostly shit-food.  I made people fat and fatter.  I just can't do that anymore.  Plus, I wouldn't be able to ignore the young fellas talking right to my chest.  Yup, that happened a lot.

I am on a journey to find a healthy job.  I know they are out there, but not sure where to look yet.  I would like a non-smoking, positive, and  energetic environment .  If that's not asking too much.  I have lots of passion and want to be around others who do.  No drama, no bullsh*t, and no whining.  If I am surrounded by like- minded folks I will be happy. I am anxious to see what's out there, however,  I am not in any hurry to find this needle in a hay-stack.  Jim has already informed me several times that there is no hurry.  Plus, I have plenty of things to keep me busy around the house.  I see a lot of painting in my future. UGH!

I have signed up for a writing class that starts the end of August.  It will be my first time in a class since 1987.  It's not supposed to be an intimidating class. As with all things, I'll let you know.  I have really enjoyed writing throughout  my life.  Often thought of writing a book.  Maybe this class will help me to write better and open another door.  Who knows, maybe BIKE Magazine will come knocking someday. Hmmm, like my own column for ladies over 40????  Dream a little with me.

Kindergarten Orientation

On Monday Sydney officially starts Kindergarten.  I am very excited for her, but also feel like I am going to throw up in my mouth.  I know that she is more than ready to go. She will even be riding the bus.  And I will be right behind on my bike.  Only for a couple days. How else can I see how this fella Mr. Mike drives?  He is carrying some very precious cargo, not to be taken lightly.  It's almost 3 miles to school. A lot can happen.
