So, I'm back in the job search world. Last week I got a call from my boss that I lost my job. I took a leave back in June that was for 8 weeks and apparently they wanted me back before the 8 weeks was over. (Though they never told me that.) Maybe my mom being sick and having 2 mini strokes, diabetes and then getting her gallbladder removed wasn't a good enough excuse for me needing that 8 weeks to help her out. I sent them all the medical documentation they needed, but they didn't really care. I'm the only caregiver of my mom and that's why I needed the full 8 weeks... It was very frustrating. I'm upset, hurt and very angry that they did this to me, especially during the wrong time of the year. I have my kids' birthdays coming up as well as Christmas and now I'm back trying to find a job.
I sent out quite a few resumes to both at home jobs and office jobs and also walked around the entire mall filling out applications. I'm pretty sure I can get something seasonal right now, if I had to, just to supplement for the time being. It's very nerve wracking and very difficult. I do have a job interview tomorrow with Bath and Body Works. When Alayna was born back in 2005 I worked for them for three seasonal seasons. Hopefully this will pan out and I can work with them for a few months. At least it will give me a paycheck for now, that's all I need. I'm quite frustrated and very paranoid, my nerves are working in overdrive right now. All I want is to be able to support my family, and that's something I can't do right now.
I'm trying like hell and hopefully this will work in my favor.
