Job, Supposedly

September 1st, 2017 at 08:32 pm

I have had a few months of phone interviews, and one in person one that I was offered. Not my dream job or title, not the pay I want, but doing the typical duties of my dream job. And it is a job.

However, I was supposed to start Tuesday after Labor Day. Today, the Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend, I had to call my recruiting company who called the client to see what time I was supposed to show up Tuesday. Thankfully my soon-to-be-supervisor was still working and my new start date will be the following week at the earliest.

Strangely that works out ok. I would have had to take two half days next week for kid specialists that I could not move. Plus it will be my oldest's first full week of 4K and I am still skeptical of the school and how they are going to handle his special needs.

However, in my new potentially first week of work, I will still have half a day off. That time will be going to go to Appeals Court for unemployment. I keep trying to write about it, but makes my blood boil and gives me angry shakes and insomnia.

Thank goodness for my parents supporting us during this period. THANK GOODNESS. I am indebted to them for forever.


Not much else to report. I have a list a mile long of what I need/want to buy when I get a steady income. After seriously tackling the freaking insane amount of debt that is and getting a savings account back in place. Oh and maybe start saving for my own place and all the furnishings I no longer have and... and... and... a vacation. Really a hotel stay full of sleep, chick flicks, sleep, unhealthy foods, and did I mention sleep? Yeah. It will be good to have steady income again.

    I'm so happy you have a job. I'm sure that is a big relief!

    Best wishes for your son in school.

    If you plan to appeal denial of UI benefits, there is a major time line. One hour late and your appeal is not allowed . You must provide evidence of a job search date/place/action. If you received holiday pay or a remuneration in lieu of notice, it adds to uninsurability. If you voluntarily relinquish employment, are fired 'for cause,' reject an offer of employment...you are not eligible for benefits even if you've paid into UI for 35 years.
