My week last week was truly intense. It started on Monday which was my sister's birthday. Tuesday at work my employer threatened me (I will not accept you ever making another mistake again.... or else) and then said employer taking male coworker out to lunch while I cried and then I went home early feeling shaky and hurt, so hurt..... Wednesday going into work and finding male co-worker's best friend sitting at my desk doing my job (oh wow....), Thursday going on a job interview, Friday arranging 2 more job interviews and having a decent birthday... oh yeah, and we got a new kitten too for my birthday gift.
So unemployed again. Although I'm terrified of the financial repercussions, I've been miserable for two years so there's a sense of relief. The biggest hurt was spending two years working closely with someone and thinking we truly were close and had each other's back and then finding him burying the knife in mine.
I haven't heard from him at all. Truly, that hurt is crazy deep.
But my birthday was surprisingly nice. I got a very generous gift and will be getting a complete set of canning equipment and I'm giddy. I've always wanted to can and now I can start. Being that it's fall I'll be starting with apple sauce and onion relish. Woot!!
And I've been reading up a storm. I got more Laura Florand Chocolate series and omg!, I'm thinking about becoming a crazed stalker.
And I started writing. Not a lot but it's words on a page.
There's a really hopeful part that thinks maybe losing this job will lead to some positive changes. Certainly working with such constant negativity would do anyone in. Maybe there's some surplus positive energy waiting for me.
