Job Hmmm

Will I lose my job? I'll probably know by tonight.

Someone is out injured and they need folks to fill in. My situation has changed a lot since I first began working for my company, namely, I no longer have a car and have to share the hour commute around my husband's schedule.

My supervisor is being intractable about my unavailability for additional hours, since when I was initially hired I had indicated I could be flexible with that somewhat. I can't now.

I got the speech "when you needed a sick day, someone else was willing to work it for you."

I wonder what about "I don't have a car" spells an unwillingness to be flexible.

He said he will call me back with his decision this afternoon. Decision?

Maybe he's getting me a new car ;-)

Or maybe I no longer have a job? This may be one decision that's out of my hands, but I'm feeling stressed a little, nevertheless.

Maybe God is presenting this as a confirmation that I need to pursue other options and that this isn't where I need to be.

We'll see. I'm not upset, but it's hard telling my body that...my blood pressure thinks otherwise.

Interestingly, I pick up my books later today for the CNA class...

UPDATE:
As of 5:25 PM, Supervisor has not called back. ARGGGHHH.

A new adventure on your horizon I see (feeling a bit Yodaish myself). =)

Oh Robbyn, sending positive thoughts your way.

Mike and I were both in this exact position last week. We think we're good for now, hoping the same for you.

I hope this situation goes the way you really want it to go ... :).

Annette, thanks! Yes, adventures :)

Paulette, taking a few deep breaths...I hope your situation stabilizes. Still praying that house will sell!

Wendy, thanks, girl...still trying to find ways that our efforts can be home-based. I think this may be a step that direction, oddly enough, though for a time it will seem the opposite.

Judy, thanks so much...a lot can change in a day, eh? :)

Lisa and Danielle...thank you! never heard back and a lot of things aligned in other ways, so I am moving on with some optimism and a healthy dose of fear and trepidation, eek :)
