A one day job today!

Yesterday I had a phone call from my cousin Kathy telling me that she had a friend who desperately needed someone to sit with her Mother tomorrow.  I was so happy because I had the day off ( now today ).  The lady I'm watching just had surgery and mostly needs bathroom help.  She wears Depends and doesn't make it in time.  I am to help fix her meals too.  I am getting paid more that what I make at my regular job and will be working for 10 hrs.  I should get around $150.  I know sometimes people throw in a bonus too!  The house isn't too far from me either.  I also offered respite services for her Father because he has Alzheimer's.  I think she was grateful she found me. 

The weather has been bone chilling cold.  I hate it when it is this cold.  Everything freezes and makes life difficult.  Luckily I can afford heat and the house is nice and warm.  Thank God, he has certainly held me up since I left my ex.  I've been praying for a good husband too.  Will everyone join me in praying for that with me?  Maybe I need to combine forces.  I don't want to walk through life alone all the time. 

Miss Daisy has been recovering nicely and growing like a weed.  She is into everything and likes to play.  Sometimes she uses her teeth and needs to be scolded.  She has a fetish for socks and shoes and likes to hide them.  Not fun in the morning when trying to get to work/school whatever.  So I am going to wrap this up.  I tried writing this entry last night, but Brownie sat on the keyboard and did something to hopelessly mess it up.  Bad Brownie!  

thanks for the tag Donna!

I am glad that you will get the chance to help someone out that needs help plus you will be helping yourself out in the meantime. I am certainly joining you in prayers that God will send you a good husband. Someone that you will love and that he will love you and your children and pets and will be a good helpmate and provider for you and your family and that you will have a happy home. (((hugs))) Helen

Wow..that one day was a great deal.
Good carergivers are so much in demand.
I'm sure the woman was happy to have you look after her mother.

Have a good day!

Sounds like a great job and great pay for the day! I am just glad you were smart enough to get away from the ex...at times I am sure it can be lonely...but its still got to be better than him for sure.
