So that package that was supposedly delivered on November 24 to my old address was actually picked up by the post office. THEY LIED TO ME! They told me they didn't have any packages for me!
I found this out when I finally called Amazon and told them I never got the package. I asked if it could be redelivered and the lady I spoke with said she'd check and get back to me.
By 5 pm yesterday I had an e-mail telling me that the package was going to be re-delivered to my sister's address and I'd get it by 8 pm. on December 20th. Thankfully that's a Thursday, so I'm going to plan to stay at my sister's until it arrives or 8 p.m. I hope it arrives early enough in the day because I've got plans.Now then, my plans for the week
I need to get to storage to get a couple of red blouses/tops from my unit and the slow cooker from one of the other units.
I need to wash my clothes (I'm out of socks)
I need to go to the grocery store for food stuffs for the church dinner on Sunday.
I also need to go to the mall (or the bank) to at least get gift cards for my sister, M & J. I'd rather get them all visa gift cards and let them get what they want. I figured $25 each for M & J and $50 for my sister and that will be the extent of my Christmas shopping.
There's also work on Wednesday, Friday of this week. Then next week, there's a half day (which I do anyways) on Monday before having Christmas off (which is a Tuesday and I have that day off anyways). Usual day on Wednesday and Friday of next week. I think the 31st is also a half day
with Jan 1st off and back at it on Jan 2nd.
I need to e-mail J & N and ask if I can go "full time" volunteering for 2013. My dad has already told me, and continues to remind me whenever we talk (which is why I try not to call them so much) that come next year, he doesn't want me in the house - meaning he wants me pounding the pavement
5 days a week looking for work. Okay, fine. Monday-Thursday in the morning I'll volunteer with Legal Aid, then in the afternoons I'll go to the library and do my job search there since I won't be able to do it at home. Fridays I'll come to the church and do my usual work. This will ensure that I'm out of the house 5 days a week like he asks.
Last Friday, at the volunteer holiday party (remind me to take a picture and post the thank you gifts they gave out!), I got to thinking about going back to school for my Bachelor's degree and possibly going to law school. Listening to the other volunteers who are either in law school or preparing for the bar exam had me re-thinking what I want to do. I mean, I did get my paralegal degree, but every place I look they want someone with experience, even for a legal secretary position (which I would think my 11 years experience as a secretary would give me some sort of foot in the door). However, maybe if going back to school isn't a viable option just yet, I can get whatever certification I need to help me get my foot in the door as a legal secretary.
yeah, I think that's my goal for 2013. research Bachelor degree programs I might be interested in (I'm already fairly certain it will be something criminal justice related) and research the National Association of Legal Secretaries
And now I'm going to head back to my sister's. Maybe get a jump start on washing my clothes.
