well i’ll be working again next week. yeehaw 😀 and i still have chance at a position at an OB clinic….. but they have to finish moving into their new facility (ew what a job that would be!!) and combining with another department. heheh… glad i’m not quite their employee yet
the weather has been nice for the last few days. 60* this morning. ahhhh
so much better than the 106* it was last saturday. that was the day the guy who’s taking down the tree in tha back yard was finishing up the work he started earlier in the week. still has a ways to go to get the whole thing down. its a huge stinky elm tree, damaged by a wisteria laviathon that took years to grow all up into it, and all over everthing else. and took a few years to eradicate. its still popping up shoots from the leftover vines in the chain fence. when plants go bad…..
in september i’m flying out to see my son in california. he’s getting married and i get to go! this is special because when he was a baby i was way more of a mess than i am now, and i chose to give him up for adoption. it wasnt easy to do. but it probably saved his life. i was reunited with him right before his 18th birthday and graduation, when he found me and contacted me. i was so happy!! he’s a marine now, has a daughter from a previous marriage, and is going to iraq in january. so september will be very special to me.
well this week hasnt been the most exciting one ive ever had. 😦
i was so sure i was going to get a call from this medical group i applied at, that had around 8-9 MA jobs posted……
money was real tight this week.
my cell phone was out of sevice for a day.
the car was running on empty.
peppermint patties for dinner (new weight loss plan).
the temperature has been between 98* and 101*, last saturday it was 106*. and then there’s the heat index….
i had a 3 day migraine (just spice for the rest of the way the week has been playing out).
today things are looking better. they had to. i refuse to get discouraged.
i signed up with another temp agency, and the girl said she has something that might work out for me.
and the temperature was 64* this morning, and hasnt gotten up to 80* and its 3pm now. ahhhhhhh
i just refuse to believe that God wont lead me to the job for me.
habakkuk 3:17-19 is my guiding light at times like this.
‘although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat;
the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls;
yet i will rejoice in the LORD, i will joy in the God of my salvation.
the LORD God is my stregth, and He will make my feet like hinds feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places.’
He is the LORD of my breakthrough!
well im working this week at an awesome clinic that treats patients with infectious disease. i was told if they ever needed a medical assistant, i would be the first one they considered. it doesnt appear they need one now tho 😦
its being a good week. im enjoying being at this clinic. even the patients are really cool, although some of them are pretty sick. breaks my heart sometimes.
never the less, i have also applied at another hospital group, where i did my internship. i fully expect to get an interview with them. and after that, a job.
then we can start saving for our move to oregon next year. i can hardly wait to get back to oregon!!!
it hasnt been great being a medical assistant in oklahoma. at least not where i live.
i went to school to learn how to do something of value. its never too late to start something. i was excited to be entering the medical field..still am really. mom was an x-ray tech for over 30 years, so i guess its in my blood too. i really enjoyed my classes, and my teacher.
but i had no idea how many other people were entering the same field.
it seems there are 4 or 5 schools here that are cranking out the medical assistants. every week there are more graduates. and there are places that love to have the students do their internship with them. theyre free help after all.
but when it comes to getting a job for real… ahaha. thats a horse of a different color.
so except for a brief position with a doctor that decided i was too inexperienced after all, and thank God for the temp services, i have been trying to get work for over 7 months now.
ah well. the plan is to move to oregon next spring. there are a lot more options there.
i was reading some letters from a missionary the other day. it was very inspiring. it was about maintaining my stance in a troubled time such as we are in these days. it was a reminder that we have a great and mighty God, who has already overcome evil, and given us the victory, if we’ll just take it. and how He’s given us the weapons to enforce that victory, and hold it.
he wrote about how the battle is really in the spiritual realm first, and our weapons are mighty thru God to pull down strongholds, cast out imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
he wrote about who we are in Christ, (the Anointed One and His Anointing), and about the greatness of His power toward us who believe, which raised Christ from the dead and set Him far above all principality and authority in this world as well as the one to come. and how He raised us up together with Him in that place.
therefore i am not afraid of what man can do. i know he can wreak alot of havoc, and do alot of harm, and cause alot of damage. thats nothing new. but i dont have to be afraid of it. i know my God is with me, come hell or high water, and He will bring me thru. i know He keeps me in this life, and will keep me in the next one too. "i know Whom i have belived, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which ive commited to Him".
