Happiness is not having to do any more road trips for a long time! :)
I kept it a secret for obvious reasons, but I went home for a couple weeks to visit family and friends. I had every intention of staying through the holidays, but God had other plans for me. In the city/state I'm now living in, I have no job and not a PERMANENT place to stay. So, umm...I need to fix that. ASAP. The job search has been CRAZY hard and I was really getting down on the fact I couldn't get work ANYWHERE doing ANYTHING. Not to mention trying to find somewhere to live within my price range AND that accepts dogs is really tough. Anyway, God's opened some doors for me and I am on my way to an interview here in a few minutes. I feel very good about this position I'm interviewing for and am really hoping it works out. I also have two interviews next week for a nanny positions, but I'm thinking if this interview goes well...I won't need those. I'll also be meeting with potential roomies this coming week also. Wish me luck on that front! Last time I lived with other people it was a mixed bag of crazy. I think I'll stick to just one other person, not THREE!
Anyway, it feels REALLY GOOD to be back here, out of Florida, and in a different place. When I left "M" and came here, I was down, confused, depressed, scared, and broke. I'm still broke but I don't have to worry right now about trying to buy groceries and my card being declined. It just feels so different being here now. It feels great :)
