Life is going on....

So, today I go see the place where I work for the first time. I just tried on my uniform - a skirt, hose, can you believe it? I even bought a girdle, for heaven's sake!!!!!! We have full dress rehearsal on Saturday or Sunday, and the casino is having a "soft opening" on Tuesday evening. So then I will start "hostessing" on Wednesday. Five hours a day. Five hours that I WON'T be sitting in the recliner! I have been doing that too much lately. These seminars and orientation sessions haven't been too bad, other than just sitting there. I learned to do that when David would be having CT scans and such and such.
I have had some very depressing feelings, though. This was our favorite time of year and he had assured me that we would go to Vermont to see the leaves change before he died. Mistletoe Market has been being advertised lately. I just don't know if I can go to that. My counselor said to try to start a new tradition. I think working in a casino is going to help me. I hope that that will get me out of my depression and will help me meet other people. I have met some, but most are so young, they really don't have a lot to say to me. It is strictly a young crowd. There were a few older workers in the sessions, but not too many. I have been talking to the young ones and the other day this girl went on and on about how she got carded and blah blah blah. I asked her how old she was now - 22. I am not a partier so hostess for the "elderly", which, by the way, they classify as 50 and above, will be better for me. 50? Elderly? Then give me Medicare!!!!!!
Okay, that is all for today. I have to go to the store to get pet food. My neighbor, Marian, talked to one of her daughters who lives on a farm, so they are taking Teddie, so her grandaughter can take care of her, along with Little Guy and Blue. I don't want to get rid of anyone, but it has been too hard, of late, to deal with all of the critters. I will miss them, especially Blue, but he showed up here after Katrina so he will love being on a farm. So will Guy, who has never seemed happy here. And all Teddie does is sleep so it will probably do her good to have someone to play with her.
Okay, see y'all later! Be careful out there!!

    i was beginning to worry because you had not written in a while. your counselor is right about starting a new tradition. some time in the future when you are ready you will make that trip and David will be with you. good luck on the job. keep taking it one day at a time.
