A Day of R&R? Could It Be?

Here’s what my schedule has been like the last two weeks and what it will be like for the rest of this week:

• July 22: volunteered at the museum
• July 23: sat with my granny to give my mother a break
• July 24: sat with my granny again to give my mother a break (this was a two night trip)
• July 25: helped my dad get the house where I grew up ready to sell
• July 26: had a terrible headache nearly all day
• July 27: volunteered at the museum
• July 28: worked on job applications from the moment I woke up until I went to bed
• July 27: volunteered at the museum
• July 28: worked on job applications from the moment I woke up until I went to bed
• July 29: worked on job applications from the moment I woke up until I went to bed
• July 30: worked on job applications from the moment I woke up until I went to bed
• July 31: sat with my granny to give my mother a break
• August 1: helped my dad get the house where I grew up ready to sell; attended a birthday party for a friend of the family
• August 2: went to church in the morning; slept all afternoon since I’d worked most of the day then got home late from the party
• August 3: worked on job applications in the morning; volunteering at the museum in the afternoon
• August 4: worked on job applications from the moment I woke up until I went to bed
• August 5: ??? (See below)
• August 6: volunteer at the museum and go by and check on my granny who has now moved into an assisted living home
• August 7: lunch with a former colleague and job interview later that afternoon
• August 8: a day and night with my boyfriend, I’ve missed him while he’s been away and can’t wait to see him

To say that I have been busy would be an understatement. So, what is on my agenda today, you know, where I had the question marks? I have two choices: 1) spend the day in the pool for some much needed relaxation or 2) work on my novel. The good thing about those two choices is that both are fun and something I really want to do; the better thing about those two choices is that I can do both. I think I will do both as long as it doesn’t unexpectedly rain. Yesterday it was 100 degrees in this part of Alabama, the pool will feel great, and then I can write. I’ll let you know how it goes.

By the way, did you notice that I have a job interview on Friday. It’s not a job that I’m very excited about, but it (should) pay well, include benefits, and would give me money to live one while I keep looking for a job that I will find more rewarding. It is a job that a neighbor of mine recommended me for at the local board of education where she works. The job will basically be lots of paperwork and mentoring people while they get their GED and helping them decide what to do next. If nothing else, it should get me good karma points. My neighbor seems to think I have a good chance at the job, and she’ll be meeting with the woman interviewing me on Thursday for something else but plans to further “talk me up” for the job. Wish me luck. I’m just praying that God points me in the right direction.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
