Thank you to everyone for their kind words about my kitty and the loss of my job.
I didn't like my job very much and had been kind of looking around here and there for something new but hadn't really felt any urgency about it since I had a steady paycheck. Getting fired wasn't a total surprise but it wasn't exactly expected either, if that makes any sense.
So far I've had ZERO luck in finding a job. I've sent out resume after resume with almost no response. And this week I haven't found anything worth applying for. Oh sure, there are plenty of jobs out there but either I'm not qualified or they pay minimum wage. And I don't know how anyone can live on minimum wage!!!
I did have an interview last Friday that seemed too good to be true. It was for exactly the job I wanted and the starting pay was for more than I've ever made in my life! The interview went extrememely well and the interviewer didn't even ask me why I left my last job. And they ALWAYS ask that! She kept saying she was impressed with my previous experience. I just KNEW I had the job. Only I didn't. They decided to hire from within. Whoever they hired, that person's job had been elimated so they slid them right into my dream job. I found out yesterday morning and spent a good portion of the day crying.
Something will come up. It has to! I just can't lose my house!
