...waiting on the world to change... I am not really waiting on the WORLD to change...I am waiting on ME to change.  I can't complain until I actually DO something.

Today is the day.

I have put in applications with the school district for temporary employment...just to get me through the next couple of months.  Why, you ask, am I putting in applications when I have a full time job???

Because today is the day.  Today, the straw broke the camel's back.  Today.  My job forced me to choose between caring for my sick son and going into work. 

Michael has Pink Eye.  Highly contagious.  My parents, who care for Michael, are out of town for the week.  My sister is in charge of Michael and AJ on Tuesday.  My sister did not want to take care of a sick kid.  I don't blame her.  I called my boss to let her know that I would not be in on Tuesday, since Michael is sick.  Yeah.  My boss SHOT that down.  Let me know that since I was on probation (really, that is news to me) about my attendance that I would lose my job.

Did she just threaten me with my job??? 

I am SO ready to quit.  I really would quit, except I like everyone that I work with, and don't want to put them in a pickle. 

I talked my sister into taking care of Michael, eyedrops and all...on Tuesday.  I just pray that my nephew does not catch the Pink Eye.

This is why I am looking for a change.  I am ready.

Love to All.

  1. UGH! So sorry to hear about this. I've been in those jobs...haven't quit, but finally ended up (thank goodness) getting let go. It was time, and just what I needed to move forward. Thinking of you and hoping your little guy is feeling better.
