One Little Ray of Light

My mom is still with us, although not any better. Along with all she's going through, I need to get the handle under the toilet replaced and the washer has apparently started to shit the bed. For some reason, I'm having a series of plumbing related problems and I don't know why.

However, there has been one little ray of light to come into my life. I haven't found a new full-time job yet*, but I did start a new part-time seasonal job today, at my favorite store! (They have a social media policy for employees so even though I'm very happy there already, I'm not going to take any chances and name it here.) I'm there through at least January, but the assistant store manager thinks I could get picked up for regular part-time after the holidays.

Today was my first day as a floral specialist. Their full-time person was happy to have me join her, once she realized I'm not going to replace her. Although, she's 80 years old and has been in floral for 30 years. If I can stick around for awhile, maybe there'd be a chance for me to get in there full time.

I made 3 Christmas wreaths and 5 cemetery arrangements. I was actually singing along with the music playing over the speakers.

I work there again tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.

*I did not get fired from the hospice agency when I returned to work. It turns out that someone nameless (I didn't ask who) lied to the administrator about me on a number of things, so my job is actually secure, I've been told. However, I told my husband I was going to make it rain resumes when I got back, because I can't stay working in a place where I'm lied to, lied about and completely disregarded as a person. Plus, they fucked up my paycheck while I was gone, it was messed up for the first one I had when I got back, and it's going to be fucked up again 1-2 more paychecks. I found that out yesterday.
