It's Monday and I'm happy. I have been a substitute janitor at my son's school (pre-12) and get called in to cover a shift maybe once a month or
two. A lady just went on maternity leave as her kid is due on the 19th so I get her day job til she returns in 6 - 9 weeks.
It's mon-fri from 1pm
to 5pm and I'm sure if someone on the night shift can't work, I'll do 1pm to 11.30 pm. That should happen at least once.
Selfish me hopes she'll decide to be a stay at home mom so I can keep that job.
Still, this will be a help for me and self esteem. Two others are
talking about moving on and retiring so whenever that happens, I'll be in their spot and that's 8 to 16 hour days (depending if there is a school
game or not) 5 to 6 nights a week. Feels good to have my foot in the door and working for a school.
I hear they pay better than min wage once a sub
becomes permanent too. ^_^ I can only go up from here. My almost 2 years of trying to find work and being left out has ended.
