I have stopped long haul trucking, as of July 13, 2014. I was tired and bored, and my mental and physical health was deteriorating. Plus, my friend who had been keeping our three dogs and taking care of the house had to get her own apartment because she could just barely get up our stairs. She couldn't take our three dogs. It was a sign that it was time.
Now what? I have been applying for jobs online for a month now, and have little to show for it. I have been technically hired as a limo driver, locally, but it is contingent on the business growing. I may be hired at a daycare center. I have applied to nanny jobs and to a laser technician job.
I am working on getting my house in order. Working the way I was, there was little time to deep clean or organize.
I still need to work, both for money and for a feeling of accomplishment.
Hope God will put me where I'm needed.
Till then, I am also stepping up my writing.
