You can never tell how each day is going to turn out when you wake up in the morning.
You can predict it, of course. You can start the day thinking about a new job and all the benefits it will bring. But by the afternoon, you could be suddenly jobless, fixing a roof that’s leaking from incessant rain, and cleaning up urine from a potty training accident while simultaneously coughing your lungs out due to illness.
Fortunately, the leaky roof seems fine now. And while potty training is a lengthy process, that is somewhat under control too.
But sadly, there’s little I can do about the fact that my new job has fallen through.
Apparently it was due to fears over the coronavirus spreading, although I don’t believe that. The lack of professionalism in which the whole situation has been handled has left me feeling dubious about the whole thing.
So it’s back to job hunting once again. Yay. But at the very least, that gives me some more time with my family.
Interestingly enough, I am sick. But fortunately not with the coronavirus, just a normal cold. Alas, parents don’t get to rest when they’re sick. When you’re responsible for other people, you just have to suck it up and get on with things.
Still, it’s important not to wallow in self-pity over the job situation. I’ve tried that before and it’s no fun. All we can do is get back up and try again.
Let’s keep at it, 2020 🙂
