Everything Changes

Monday, October 28, 2013

I'm into my second week at the new apartment and new job. The apartment is ok, especially now that the cats have settled in. They're still a little spooked, but much better than the first night.

My new job is interesting. The people are very nice and positive. I have not heard one negative thing from anyone. It's actually hard for me to get used to. I have gotten so paranoid dealing with my mother-in-law that I don't trust anyone. I was so nervous last night and this morning that I couldn't sleep.

Honestly, these ladies have been nothing but nice and willing to help me out when I need it. Being with babies is an adjustment after being with 2 year olds for the past 4 years, but I'll be with the same group of kids until they're 3. So I won't be just with babies.

Lunch is interesting. Food is provided by the hospital and they want us to eat with the kids. This means a balanced meal with a fruit, a veggie, meat, and a carb. Since we are to eat with the children they provide gluten free food for me. I get nervous when I don't have control of my food, but I'm eating a bigger variety of veggies.

I hope to finally make it to the exercise room this week. I have been taking the stairs instead of the elevator and don't sit much during the day, so that's a positive.

I will have hospital benefits, which are really good, starting on Friday. I make $3+ more an hour. I work with honestly nice people. This should be great news, yet I find myself fighting back tears. I guess this is what happens when you truly care about the kids you take care of. I really miss my "old" kids. On my last day I felt like I said good-bye to the only people in the state that liked me for me.

Ok, enough depressing crap! This weekend we can finally get our place put together our way. I can't wait to get a new cat tree.
