First day on the job - OP

Posted: Dec 5th, 2018 - 3:07 am In Reply to: Starting new job - Dot

Thank you all for your prayers; they worked! I had energy and eagerly and efficiently completed my tasks. The real shock came when after only 2 houses rather than 4 which I was told on the schedule, we were finished so I was disappointed to go home at 2 o’clock.

We are paid by the house so I need to make more. First house was an elderly couple who were at home and I was surprised to find I was not conscientious around them and in fact, felt a bit sympathetic at their vulnerability and admired how these 2 people in their 70s and 80s (one with stroke) maintained their beautiful home. There are a lot of older military men and their wives here.

I will redo my resume. It is the same style I used 20 years ago. On the drive home, I saw a diagnostic center and will drive over there and see if they need any help. I have a missing tooth near front of smile and cannot get it fixed at moment; it has closed a few doors.

Cost of living is very high. Food is off the charts here. State tax does not exist but there are multiple taxes on purchases and services which make up for it. However, I love the weather comparatively speaking and am close to beach. The house I rented is shabby but am on CL in attempt to find a room mate. I have one year until an income from SS will arrive - 1,100.00 a month which will be such a great relief; it is all I can hope for.

This trip has renewed my faith in God. Everything I have needed is around me (dentists/vets/doctor offices). On the drive, the people I found myself talking to in situations were God sends, with information or insight, some quality which led to me feeling hopeful.

This is the first time I have engaged in a training process and find I am somewhat forgetful. I won’t go into detail but it scared me (I forgot something I was just told). Second place was a business with the people working. That was a bit awkward. I used to be sitting at the desk when the office was being cleaned so a bit of humiliation did try to surface but that is the least of my worries at the moment. I have to remember not to talk too much because I sound panicky and my thoughts are in flight. I don’t fit in, I can see that but hopefully they will keep me because I show up and do a good job. The flu is moving through the town so am going to ask t wear a mask tomorrow as I have not been in public like this for decades.

Day by day - I have made a point to buy things I can sell and will do that (generator and a new bed). I thought when I moved out of California, I’d see a response to my resume (lower minimum wage).

Thank you so much. I felt a boost in energy that was like a shot in the arm. I went for a walk with dogs on arrival to home and went to be so at 8 PM so I can do this again tomorrow.

You are are why I love MT. I know there must be many like me out there. Maybe we can meet up somehow in person; surely, we live in the same county or region. I’d love to be a roommate with another MT.

It is 4 in the morning so better try to get back to sleep. Thank you again. I feel so emotional and there is no one I can express this too who would not be frightened by my situation. Please forgive errors; I am blurry eyed.

I did want to mention I applied at a laundromat, 2nd hand store, medical supply store. I think now I will try to apply for work with elderly.

Will keep you informed. If anyone lives on east central coast of Florida, Titusville specifically, and wants a roommate with 2 senior dogs, let me know. I am unobtrusive.
