My husband and I spent thirty years with each other, before he decided that he wanted a divorce.I was shocked, because his decision seemed to come out of left field. In a matter of a few months, my entire changed completely. I was on my own for the first time, and in need of a job. All the kids were out of the house, and I needed something to keep my days occupied. I looked through the newspaper for want ads, and found a few jobs that appeared to be promising. I placed about ten applications online, and finally heard something a few days later. The owner for a busy HVAC company was looking for a receptionist for the firm. I would be responsible for answering phone calls and setting HVAC service repair appointments. I hadn’t worked in twenty years, but the owner hired me on the spot. I started the receptionist job at the HVAC company, about two months ago,. So far, everything has been really good. All of the employees are very nice and friendly. I’ve already been invited on several outings after work, but I haven’t gone to any of them yet. Next week is a retirement party for one of the older employees, so I might decide to attend that gathering. Everyone has been asking me to go out to dinner or a movie, but I’m still not used to going out by myself. It’s still going to take some time to adjust to my new life. I’m enjoying my job at the HVAC company, and that helps me meet a lot of new people.
