Life Goes On.......

Well, I've been searching for a job for the past month. Getting my CV(resume) updated and brushing up on my interview skills. Nothing so far, but I'm still optimistic. Paul is able to start looking for something after Next Friday so then we'll be in it together.

What am I looking for? A job. I don't really want management anymore....been there-done that. At this point, I want a job I can go into, do my hours, and come home without bringing work with me and having to worry about someone calling out and spending the next couple hours working trying to get the shift covered. I'll work my butt off while I'm AT the job-heck, I don't even mind being "on call" if needs be- but the days of bringing work home and spending an additional 4 hours are pretty much over for me. If i'm gonna be working at home- I'll do an "at home" job so I can have the flexibility of fitting the work around my BUSY BUSY schedule. (Ha! Yeah- I'm SOOOO bogged down "Busy Being Bored" right now.)

And I definitely don't want a wait-staff job. I don't know HOW they put up with the things they deal with on a daily basis. Mind you- this coming from a person who has worked law-enforcement practically all her life. Yeah- when I go out to eat- the waitstaff get nice tips if I'm paying.

I've done Police work as well as Security work(both active field work- and the office receptionist sides). I've clerked in retail shops, worked in a fast food joint, and I (have/had) my own business in the States as a "Seasonal Marketing Specialist" during the Christmas holidays. What is THAT???? Basically, I went into homes and businesses and decorated for them for the holiday.

My "Dream Job" would be to own my own Christmas Shoppe. To sell decorations and ornaments for Christmas as well as offer the Home/Retail decorating services. Maybe Someday.....

When I was laid off back in 1999 it took me 6 months to find a job. My age had a lot to do with it.
