Church Secretary

Well, the job is going ok so far. I found out Wednesday that I am actually going ot be the church secretary and am going to have a part time assistant. That may be kind of cool. The lady that I was taking her place left yesterday and she was supposed to stay til Friday. And the girl that is training me was not there today and won't be there tomorrow either. So I had 3 days training and then had it by myself. It wasn'tso bad though. The one that is training me was the one I am actually replacing.
She does home health for her mother and it is too much for her to do the church business too. She will still be my supervisor, and the Pastor's personal secretary, though.
The no personal calls thing is a little bit hard to get used to, but I can text some. Not much and not when there is anyone around, mostly just supposed to text Cindy, the girl training me.So far everyone seems to be pretty nice.
I have the full charge secretary position for the church and it's finances plus the daycare finances. I am definately going to ask for a raise as soon as I think it is safe to. That is way too much work for $7.50 an hour.
No Brandi, they don't go quite so far as electronic confiscation. Not that I know of anyway. LOL
Jason Nadaskay has an appointment with Pastor Jordan next week. I thought that was kind of cool.

Praise God, I got a job!!!

Okay, are you ready for this??
The church that hired and fired me all in the same day called back this morning and wants me to start to work there today. I have some mixed feelings about it, but I am going to take the position on Faith. The lady called back and said the girl gave them a 2 week notice after all.

The lady that works there is someone I already knew from my last job. She was one of our customers at Cowboy Homes several years ago. Well after they told me I din't have the job at the church she asked me if Mike could look at their house because they were having some issues that insurance is taking care of so we are getting that job too.
God is so good

Hired and fired all in the same day....

Well, I went to my 2nd interview Monday. It went well.
Tuesday I was waiting to hear from the paper and a job I had applied for a month ago called back. This was for a secretary position at a church here in Abilene. I had called them several times and they never did commit to anything so I went on about my job search. Well the lady asked if I could start work this Friday,today. I told them I was waiting for the results of my 2nd interview and I would call her back in about an hour to tell her something. Well I called her back in a hour and had not been able to get hold of the paper. I asked her if I could pray about it that day and let her know something that afternoon and she said she had another number she could call if I didn't take it then because she had to do something that day. I told her that was ok I would pray about it and if she had filled the position by the time I called back then I would understand. So basically what I got from that was I didn't have time to pray about it. Strange from a church.
Anyway, I finally heard from the paper that afternoon and they went with someone else. Bummer. I called the church back and she said she had not filled the position yet and could I start Friday morning at 10 am. Sure can no problem. Yay, a job.
Well come 5:15 that evening I get a call from the church and she said she was sorry to have to call and tell me this but I would not be working there after all. The girl that was going to quit isn't after all.
Now what kind of crap on a cracker is that??
.....back to the old job search again.

Not so blue anymore...

Ok, so it was Mason being gone so long that contributed to my blue spell. He is home now and it is much better.

I had an interview with the Reporter News on Tuesday and it went well. They even called me back for a second interview this coming Monday. I am praying I am what they are looking for. It is a part time position as receptionist. this will be a good fit for my schedule with Mason and still be employed. YAY GOD!

I did have to tell Mason about his poor little Guinea pigs when he came home. He was very upset. Understandably. But, he brought a new pet home with him. A baby red eared slider turtle he found on his first day in Arkansas. That has helped his grieving alot. The turtle is going to be so much easier for me to have to take care of than more furry critters.

Be praying for my job situation. I love all of you that read, and those that don't.

Meloncholy/ Blue? Whatever it is

I have really been in kind of a funk lately and it is driving me crazy. At first I though it was just finances or business, or any number of other things, but I think I must just be missing Mason something terrible. He has been gone to Arkansas for 1 week and 3 days and won't be back for 5 more days. I am not liking being away from him so much.

I have to find a way to tell him when he gets home that his guinea pigs died of heat stroke and I know he will be upset about it and will probably be mad at me. I was supposed to take care of them for him whhile he was gone. It has just been so super hot. I feel really bad about it. I think that has added to my funk.

I am very actively seeking employment. If anyone knows of anything that might be available, please let me know. I am having a hard time because of some stupid stuff i did years ago. Our past does follow us for a very long time.

Hopefully a barbeque with the Wilsons and a trip to the lake this weekend will help. I am really looking forward to both.

I am praying for guidence and God's hand to be in all I do. I know He is always there, I just don't always hear Him.

Any other ideas on how to get out of this "mood"??
