I start a new job today…wish me luck!

5 (100%) 1 vote

After working for a retirement center for 2 ½ years here in Oklahoma I decided to take a break. It was hard to deal with the death of residents, the drama of the facility and…the deaths of residents whom I had come to love. It was like losing your grandmother or grandfather all over again. So I quit that job.

Since I quit I have been a stay-at-home “domestic engineer.”

I’ve gained some new cooking skills (homemade pasta), did the mundane tasks such as laundry (it never ends, does it?), cleaned the house, ran errands and mowed the lawn (which really sucks during the HOT Oklahoma summers).

But now I’m back to work.

After the death of my Lucky cat just six weeks ago, I decided I needed to get out of the house. Our much-loved Baby kitty has been a permanent fixture on my lap since his brother passed. He will not be happy with my being gone every day, no doubt. (Please say a little prayer for him as he’s getting up in age, too.)

I had two interviews and was lucky enough to obtain a job with a small, local law firm. I start my new full-time job today at 8:30 am, sharp!

Due to my new employment situation I may not be as active on our blog as I have been during my stay-at-home status.

Yet know that I will continue to do my best to keep the demoRATs and gun-grabbers in check. They can spin all they want but they cannot hide…

Thanks for your support of FOTM!

    Wishing you all the best in your new job. Hope Baby cat can adjust. Thanks for the update.

  2. Good luck! I hope you enjoy your new job

  3. Good luck on the new job. Mrs Watertender and I are thinking about adopting a kitten soon. We deeply feel the loss of your beloved Lucky Cat as we lost 4 cats in a year leaving us with just 1 at the time. We were given a kitten in December of 2017 and he has been a joy in our lives. The 2 cats we have now are 12 and the baby will be 2 late this year. A new kitten will be good for both of them. I work just part time as a Watertender now so keep my hand in the trade.

  4. Good luck, DCG!

  5. Thanks for all your hard work on the blog and Twitter. You’ll do great on the new job… do it all for the glory of God!

  6. Our thoughts and good wishes are with you, DCG!

  7. Good luck on the new job!


  8. Good luck. Keep your powder dry. A law office in Oklahoma could be interesting.

  9. Good luck and many blessings to you, DCG!💙

  10. Congratulations on getting a new job, DCG. Thanks for all you do for FOTM.

  11. Something tells me Lady Luck is on Your side, as for your kitty boy remember they are survivors, coming home for both of You will be like the 4th of July. Mewmewmew. And because you’ll be working at a local law firm, I’ll call You for advice if I need help. Just remember Sat’s and Sun’s you don’t have to work. hahaha, GOOD LUCK dearest DCG.

  12. Thanks all! First day went pretty well. I think it will be a good job!

  13. Glad to see you’re optimistic about your new job! Hope it remains interesting and comfortable for you. What types of Law does your firm deal in?
    About your kitty,just try to give him plenty of lap time;if he’s like my cats,he’ll miss you until he doesn’t hear your car anymore,then he’ll probably nap awhile. If nobody else is home while you’re gone,leave a radio on,turned down low-my cats like the local Conservative talk radio station,hearing voices keeps ’em calm.
    Remember-we’re right here if you ever need to talk,rant,rave or vent.

  14. Praying all goes well for you and your kitty.

  15. Congratulations, and I hope the new job doesn’t drain you emotionally like the other one did.

    My daughter lasted only a year at a retirement center, and quit a few months back. She loved her residents as well, and they loved her. With her being petite, she had a hard time lifting some of them. She had some back problems before working there, so it wasn’t easy for her. She even witnessed, (and reported) some abuse by staff on the residents. With the offending staff member, and HR manager being of the same race, my daughter saw the writing on the wall once the incident was buried, and the staff member returned to work.

  16. Best of luck with the new gig, DCG.

  17. I wish you all the best in your new job, and most of all, I wish God’s hand on your shoulder every moment you are at your new office. I’m glad you found a welcoming atmosphere on your first day. You both (you and Baby kitty) are in my prayers. God bless.

    Hope the new job continues to go well for you, DCG.
    Be an influencer! The Hand of God extended… ;~)

  19. DCG, We’re glad you had a good first day. That good start is always important. Good luck. You have a lot of good people behind you and thinking of you.

  20. James 1:27 – Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world.

    Psalms 71:9 – Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

  21. You got this. If you do this job like you do your work here, all will be well.
    Good luck to you.

  22. Best of luck in your new job, DCG, and here’s wishing you the best. Prayers.
    (And see if you can find any new intell on the Oklahoma City Bombing. Maybe someone may know something we haven’t heard.)

  23. Best wishes for you in your new job.

    I was born and raised in the lower part of the Texas Panhandle not far from the Oklahoma state line. Even after this many years I can still remember how hot it was there in the summer. The only home air conditioning was with a “swamp cooler” and not many homes even had that. Now I live near Seattle so I don’t have to worry about that kind of heat.

  24. DCG, I will be praying for you, and for your cat. Thank you for your tireless work on our “Little Blog That Could.”

  25. Best of luck & congrats as well, although we will miss your regular commentary & contributions to FOTM, now it will be a little less frequent cause you got a “warning bad 3 letter word” j o b – blech – ick – just kidding.
    Sounds like it will be interesting and good for you although maybe not so much for Baby Kitty not having you at home.
    Not to worry kittys sleep 23 hrs a day whether they need it or not =^.^=
    God is good.

  26. Good luck! Hope you enjoy the new job 🙂

  27. DCG . . . I have little doubt but what you will be an excellent addition to this law firm. I pray that angels will attend you in this new venture.

  28. All the luck in the world and in our prayers that you get what you need.
