I was planning on going back to work the week after next. I've been off on compassionate care since mid-May. My supervisor called me yesterday to see if I was able to come in and see her today and go for lunch. I was planning on letting her know how much I was looking forward to coming back to work.
However, it seems the department didn't do so well sales wise and the decision was made by the higher-ups that as a cost cutting measure, all contracts would not be renewed. Mine was up a week ago. Therefore mine was one of the first not to be renewed.
Ron left me well enough off that I don't have to go right back to work although it seems there are issues there that will keep me from getting hold of the money. The bank screwed up royally and they are blaming Ron. But I'm the kind of person who needs to work. The house is so lonely and empty so I dread the thought that I don't have a job to return too.
Right now I'm feeling kind of numb.

Kristie good to see you back online I was wondering. No doubt you are lonely and want to work but give yourself time to ajust to the changes. Sorry about your contract not being renewed. If you need a outlet while looking for a job if that is what you want have you thought of volunteer work with women going thru what you have or animals or children. You have so much to give or look into that writing course that is always on the back of your mind.
take care and call me when you want to go for coffee.

Oh kristie that is just horrid!

The end of the contract and bank crap are so not what you need to screw with right now.

Can you do a temp thing? Just to get you out of the house and busy until you decide what to do?

I hope this works out quickly for you. Let us know if we can help in any way. LOL not that I can figure out what I want to do when I grow up :).

Sorry about your contract, Krstie. Maybe it's a sign that you need some time to rest before heading back into things again? Although, if you're like me and you always need something to do you may be going stir crazy now.

I like Lori's idea on volunteering ~ and Sybil's idea on temping is good too.

Take care of yourself.

That's all you need right now...especially with the bank.

Hope everything gets sorted out.

Yeah, volunteering might be a good idea. But I hope whatever you do is what you want to do.

Kristie - I'm sorry about your contract being let go. I wish I had contacts in London to ask around. Talk about bad timing on everything!

Of course a dream job would be at one of the bookstores but I'm not sure if they would pay you well enough to support yourself until things get sorted out. Banks suck.

Try and keep your head up even though being numb is probably the exact reaction you need right now.

Love Cindy

Great to hear from you, Kristie, although the bank and job problem wasn't what I was hoping to hear about.

I pray these will resolve soon. May be a good idea to take stock and decide if you want to try volunteering or temping.

Hang in there! Know that you've friends near and far keeping you in their thoughts and prayers.
