On Friday, by the grace of God, I was offered a permanent position. I'll be working for a really big insurance company, data processing homeowner's insurance paperwork, and also as a back up receptionist. The salary is acceptable, and my medical, dental and other insurance is 100% paid.
I am so, so happy not to be a temp anymore. I was grateful for the work, but it's dead end until you get picked up permanently somewhere. No benefits.
And... I found a room to rent. Next weekend my furniture goes over. Just what I can fit in a bedroom, and a ton of boxes, cuz I'm keeping as much of my life as I can. My nice washer and dryer (bought new in 2016) has found a foster home with someone I know. She will use the washer and store the dryer until I can get them back. I'm told washers go bad if they aren't used.
And now for the best part.... !!
I knew the guy*** had animals, it was in the ad. He has a corgi named Toomba and four cats.
I was greeted on arrival by a welcoming committee of Toomba and 18 year old male tuxie Mattise,and 3 year old orange mancat, Oliver. Ollie has the cutest wrinkled little nose.
There are probably not that many people wanting to room with four animals not their own, but I think folks here will understand how pleased I was to see them. I get their company without having to pay the vet bills. And... Oliver is actually available for adoption. His person took him in because he was a kitten born on the streets but wants him to find a forever home.
I'm not saying I will adopt Ollie - that is entirely dependent on my future finances -but he is ever so cute. He doesn't really remind me of my Toby at all though, except for the color; Toby had a massive bone structure and just a totally different vibe than little Ollie.
So begins a new book in the story of my life.
*** I would have preferred to room with a woman but after five tries, I just ran out of time.
That is wonderful news that you have a permanent job! Great that you have found a room to rent too. It is nice that he has pets. He must be an okay guy to have rescued Oliver as a kitten.ReplyDelete
I am glad things are finally looking up. XOReplyDelete
We’re SO happy for you!ReplyDelete
I almost missed the coverage benefits of working for an insurance company.ReplyDelete
It reminds me of when I applied for a Federal Government job and tried to explain that most of my previous jobs had ended because the businesses went bankrupt snd the interviewer said not to worry because the Govt wasn't going to go bankrupt.
We're so glad things are turning around for you! Temping fills in the blanks, but just barely (our mom knows); a regular job is much much better. And benefits! Worth their weight these days. We think concats is due all the way around!ReplyDelete
This is all such great news! And how cool that you get to have a fur family built into your new place.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed, not only a new job and new digs, but a friendly furry bonus!ReplyDelete
Hey! I am truly really sincerely TICKLED...my day is lighter knowing you found the good job with full benefits and in a field you enjoy! AND that you found a place to live! Complete with animals. Busting to know more when or if you want to share! XXXX Blessings!ReplyDelete
Oh my word above Blessings on New Beginnings....well deserved too I might add. I cannot imagine how very hard these last few months have been with losing your soulkities and job and then worrying about you living situation. I'm so happy for you and hope you can sneak a pic of Toomba, Oliver and Mattise into the blog after you are settled.ReplyDelete
I think this new roommate will be quite fine to live with after all he is an animal lover and we all know animals have a great sense to how the good people are. This has turned out in your FAVOR big time and I say Pooh Pooh on the former employer what goes around will surely come around.
Hugs and good luck with the move.
