    All my jobs since my first to now have been on my feet jobs. I've started a new job after leaving my old one I had been at for 6 1/2 years. I left because I know that building has a mold problem. I'm not the only one who said that and I couldn't take the exposure anymore.

    I miss the job and some of the people and the fact that I knew the job and place there. The new job is not on computers and I feel like I'm in the dark ages, flipping though sheets of paper all the time.

    I tried a part time job 1/2 hour away but didn't like the drive on an essentially unlived on but rather busy divided four lane highway that connects that town to the one I live in. I would drive home late at night and worried about deer and other animals on the road.

    I wish I could figure out how things will play out. I'm not sure if I was ready to work part time but full time is still killing me, on my feet so much. One advantage on this job is it's 3 on 2 off. I've never seen this schedule. I guess they want to go to a 4/2 but staff is resisting. I would to.

    I'm looking on Indeed and Craigs list almost daily. When the methadone clinic wouldn't hire me at less than 1/2 my current wage, that was a confidence buster. I think it was age related. EVERYONE working there was very very young. I guess they didn't think my age bracket can have any compassion for this group which is not true.
