I have some good news.

For 4 years I've been working as a casual in home support. If you don't know what that is, I go from home to home and help people stay independent. It's a very lovely line of work, and every day I am out in my community I get to help people.

Every week I worry if I'll get enough hours. Every week I fret and try to make casual hours work to cover my bills. I hope that my vehicle doesn't break down or need work, because I wouldn't be able to afford it if it did. 

A job position opened up for my area for full time, which is 35~ hours a week. I decided, what the heck, I'll put my name into that hat. I was shocked when I got the call today from my office telling me I got the position. I literally started crying I was so happy.

So here I am, about to become a full time Community Health Worker, with health and dental benefits, real vacation time, and a guaranteed income of at least 35 hours (give or take a couple hours, I still realize I'm very low seniority so they'll do their best to honor the 35, but I do understand when they can't.)

I can breathe a sigh of relief :)
