Everythings All WishyWashy

Wow it was a gorgeous night tonight. As illustrated in my previous posts. I love Oregon sunsets.

I am in a weird stage where I am constantly not sure what to think. One minute I am feeling all wonderful and relaxed and content with not working and just taking a little time to breathe. And then I get bored and start hating how useless I feel.

I didn't blog about it at the time but I found out why I got fired. I was accused by my ex-boss of embezzelling money. Well they looked into it and the detectives found it completely bogus and even said that they felt like the whole thing was a complete and total waste of taxpayer money. So OK I finally got the report which makes it completely final and now I don't know where to start. It's been two months since, so I am pretty sure I cannot get my job back. I don't have the money to hire a lawyer to fight for wrongful termination. And I can't seem to find another job here in Grove, which is definately where I want to work.

Sadly enough, on my part, my biggest worry is Christmas, and how I will get the kids gifts. Uggg not to mention all the birthdays between here and there.

Money, the world seems to revolve around it doesn't it? Especially when you don't have much of it.

maybe you can find a lawyer who'd do pro-bono...but can't you call the labor board and see what they can do for free? try them.....

You could always go back with the letter and insist they hire you back, and if they don't, do what MM suggested. But if they did, your boss might make something else up, so maybe it wouldn't be worth it. Damn employers. Maybe just try and get some sort of compensation.

You're right about the money thing; it's sometimes quite depressing how dependent everything is on it.

labor board told me I was essentially shit outta luck.
I am looking into other attorneys, so we'll see. I don't know if I could go back to work there. Too much annimosity left in me I guess.
