Today I went to a local Breast Cancer Walk with Bella and Jack and Alex. There were 6, 000 people that came and walked a 5 km course to raise money for breast cancer research. It was really fun, they had 3 hours of entertainment before the walk actually started, and it was a gorgeous day. I had never done anything like that before, but I can truly say I'd love to do it again.
Bella still has her walking boot, but she walked the entire course, basically an hour's walk, with no problem. I'm so proud of her. She said before we went that if she made it through the walk with no issues, that she'd definitely want to start walking again on a daily basis like she did before. Just check out her blog, Memoirs of a Crazy Witch, and read some of her posts from about this time last year, and you'll see what I mean.
The other thing I wanted to talk about is the upcoming week. I've been in Florida for almost a month now, and it's time I got a job and got my life started. Tomorrow morning I'm going out to get some applications, and to talk to some people about jobs. I can't wait to get working again. I had been at Walmart for a year and a half, with no vacation, so having a month off has been nice, but it's time to get back to work.
I'm getting restless. I want my own place, I want to start living like everyone else. I have lived with other people for a long time now, but I want MY house, with MY stuff in it, where I can invite MY friends to come over and hang out. I want to be able to leave my job at night (or in the morning, depending on the shift I'm working lol) and come home to MY house.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like where I am. It's absolutely wonderful here with Bella, I could not be happier that she and Jack opened up their home to me, and gave me a chance to come back to Florida. But they have their own life, and me being here, whether they say it or not, has disrupted that life. I'm one extra mouth to feed, one extra body using up the utilities, a bed, and just taking up space in general lol. While they are more than happy to have me here, the fact is, I am an able bodied adult, one who should have a home of his own.
So this next week is going to be a busy one for me. Jobs don't come easy these days. I am going to have to put forth a lot of effort to find one soon.
My vacation is over, time to get back to work!
