Unemployed no more!

Guess who's bringing home the bacon!! Actually I really hate bacon. (I know, I know, I must not be a true American.)  I am happy to report that I found a job!  Not only that, but it's a job that actually has to do with my major!  I am working for a home care company, right now they have me working with a wonderful elderly woman.  She can still do most things for herself so I mostly am there for companionship and to cook meals for her. The other day she taught me a new card game and we ended up playing cards for a few hours.

Since I do not have any licenses or certifications beyond First Aid and CPR I was originally put on evening and graveyard shifts so that I wouldn't be required to do as much.  My first overnight turned out to be a lot better than I expected.  I am required to stay awake but I was able to watch TV and read.  Yesterday, I got some really good news, they are going to give me mostly day shifts from now on!

I couldn't have asked for a better job!

    Hilary, I have been meaning to ask you if they called you for a reference. Thank you for the glowing recommendation! I really appreciate you letting me use you as a reference. Oh and sorry I didn't give you any warning this time! I need to be better about that.
