Call Me!


Still waiting on the call that could potentially change our situation. I was up early ( and as always hopeful ) The phone began ringing early. Every time it rang, my heart leaped out of my chest.

The first call was from Shannon, the man who my husband is ‘partnered’ with, with specifics about Saturday’s gun show. The second call concerned my husband’s Medicaid application. The third was from a bill collector. And the forth was from TJ asking ( ME, of all people) advice about what (he) should do with the rest of his life. Specifically on whether he should stay in Coral Springs or move to Florida City where he has a job waiting, and to be closer to his step daughter who is imprisoned there.

Still no call from my potential employer. 😦

SO, I broke one of my rules and called them back. And spoke to the boss, I think. I had a brief encounter with him yesterday and recognized his voice although there was something softer to it this evening.

More importantly, he seemed receptive to my call ( he even called me Sweetie ) which is not always the case, however I know nothing more, other than the man I interviewed with won’t be back in the office until 9 am tomorrow morning.

There’s still hope ( if only a glimmer ) but more waiting. Waiting is all I seem to do these days.

‘Do what you can,
with what you have,
where you are’

Today, I have a job interview at 10 am . I’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to prepare myself for this interview. Right now I am a bundle of nerves but I am as ready as I can be. 🙂 Now all there is left to do is show up and dazzle them with my professional prowess. HA!!!!

Hopefully, when I post again later today, I will have good news to share with you.

So grateful for the prayers, well wishes and words of encouragement.

Help Wanted (credit:

Actually, this was the second one in about a week.

The first, I heard from Lue S. last Thursday evening. Lue is the one who hired me on my last job as a caregiver. After our client was put in a nursing home, she found employment through an agency in a town an hour away. She said she could get me in with them. The problem is distance. She was going to her boss to see if they had any work near me.

I didn’t hear back from her so kept looking.

Last night she advised me that ‘our’ client passed away that very night. 😦

While she was chatting with me, she got a call from the woman’s daughter telling her of E’s passing.

That would explain why our chat ended in mid-sentence.

This morning I had a phone interview with a potential employer. It went really well. Tomorrow I have an appointment to meet with them in person. It’s not exactly what I had in mind for work but it works with my background and it’s as close to home as I could ever hope for.

If I get this job, I will be working for a local AC company doing appointment setting.

They are guaranteeing fulltime employment, an hourly wage and benefits after 90 days.

I’ll know more tomorrow.

Today, I am just trying to keep the mojo flowing and preparing for the interview the best I can.

Whatever you BELIEVE, I need all the good luck I can get!

Please and thank you.

I’ll tell ya how it goes tomorrow.

Feeling, lots of pins and needles at the moment.
