Two days left

Going away dinner tonite. Impressed that nearly all of the staff showed up. Wow! Even my boss and he didn't show up at the last retirement dinner for the previous manager.

I gave a little talk about each person on the team. Not sure how I sounded - but I got some laughs. Started and ended well.

No responses from the resumes I sent out on Monday and Tuesday. Made some contacts to other managers that might be hiring within my company. Will continue this for a few more managers that I know.

I will get my reference list created. I will also get my business license and go ahead and start my own company. That will be fun.

I feel good that I know my options for bankruptcy. My biggest problem is that I have a $6k bill that I need to pay before August 15th ~ this is not good. It is to finish my degree . . . .

reference as a pick me up

Something to reference if you are unembployed:
Three more days at my current job.

Today I got a lot done at work. Ways to save money in regards to vaccinations, allergy, injectable medications, and DME costs. This collective knowledge could not have come from another currently employed with my employer. So, that makes me feel good.

On the other hand, I researched bankruptcy laws to find out my options. And I feel pretty good knowing that Chapter 7 is a real option for me. I would like to do Chapter 13, but what I understand is that a majority of those who go into Chapter 13, never finish. It takes three to five years. Chapter seven will wipe my slate clean and I will be able to finance another home within 2 years or as soon as I can get the 20% down. Hmmmm, that sounds pretty good. I think I will get more like 80% down by living in a crummy place for a while.

I submitted my resume to another lead - who I have met previously. Note that I did not submit any resumes over the fourth of July holiday weekend. I feel something should come from that.

Wierdly enough, I am extremely attracted to my ex-husband. Something about being vulnerable financially maybe, not sure.

I continue to dream about my current employer begging me to stay . . . . Reality ~ I am not irreplaceable. But I really don't care about the big cats who want things done now; kind of nice. It will happen when it happens (as far as reports or details of a case).

That is my blog for today.

One Week Left

I have one week left of employment. I just completed my resume on Friday and distributed it ~ to one lead.

Usually a job for an RN is not difficult. I have some restraints and some advantages. Managed Care is my focus and we'll see where my adventure leads.

This is the first blog. I have fears, confidence, hope, and despair. TGBTG Always!
