Hey Everyone,
Tomorrow will be 2 weeks clean and sober for me. I cant believe how good I have been feeling. Granted, cause I am not working at the moment I have been taking naps in the afternoon. I have been going to at least 2 AA meetings a day and learning a lot about me. My short term memory is still pretty shot but thats ok, I am sober.
I had a job offer, agreed on a salary. The woman said she had to check my references and would call me back that afternoon. That was Monday, no call back as of today, Thursday. The salary was for much less than I am used to but the job seemed pretty interesting and something I am good at. I figured it would be a wash because I wouldnt be spending money on alcohol. I've given up on that job (I called her twice to follow up).
Anyway, I had been working with an employment agency prior to this job "offer". I called them yesterday and put my self back on the market with them. I have an interview tomorrow at 3:00 tomorrow. I made excellent money at my last job. The position I am interviewing for tomorrow is for at least the same amount of money as my last job and maybe more. Kinda makes me glad that the other lady never called me back. Like my husband said, there is a chance that the woman at the first job is very busy and can still call me by weeks end.
I have to leave it in Gods hands. I wouldnt mind however, prayers from those of you that see fit.

Your Friend,
