Sleep is the only proper situation for inactivity; the state
of awakeness is one in which laziness should have no
place. The paradoxical situation with a vast number
of people today is that they are half asleep when awake,
and half awake when asleep or when they want to sleep.

So...yesterday I made the mistake of making the announcement about getting a job on the bewitching void called facebook. The mistake was making it sound like it was a big deal.
Today Im here to let you know...it's not a big deal.
In fact, it's very anticlimactic...especially compared to my dream job in St George. (I wont be gathering any type of dust between my hiking toes.)
Having downplayed all this..Im grateful for the work, and Im grateful Im not going to be on an assembly line or trying to sell clothing. (no offence Joe-you were good, really good at what you did) I like clothes...sort of, but I do, abhor shopping for clothes. So it was very hard to imagine myself being behind the counter at a cash register selling socks or girdles or skirts that I couldnt afford.
I've been trying to picture myself somewhere where I could continue to meet people and help people. And I believe this new job will fit the bill for now. Starting Thurs. I'll be waitressing, or hostessing with the mosting, at a one of a kind diner here in Logan. Anna calls it a greasy spoon, but it feels right for me right now. I'll get the morning shift..which I love, and I'll work till 3:00. Perfect. They serve a sit-down breakfast and the owner takes great pride in her greasy, delicious hamburgers!!
And after another interview this afternoon, I'll know whether I'll have an additional evening job, 2 nights a week at Deseret Book.
Im feeling very relieved and somewhat grateful for these opportunities...to help with the bills and to keep busy.
I am so very grateful to all my dear friends and family that have been rooting for me. Im a lucky lady!
Love to you all!!
