I Miss Working

Its been exactly 2 months since I stop working at my job, I sure do miss it especially having a paycheck every two weeks hahah.  I have to stop working due to my hand injury and unfortunately because of it my manager have to let me go because I'm not in good health to do my job anymore, its the corporate decision so my manager can't do anything .  I can always apply again according to the corporate/HR but of course they can't assure my position, so what I did is I did not apply again, I don't want to restart my training when I was almost done with my probation, though that job is paying me good compare to my other job before, I must admit it is very stressful and I was thinking all of these happen for a reason and it is a blessing in disguise, and that this job is not worth all the stress and hassle especially its so far from were we live right now, the job was not just for me.  Two weeks ago, my husband had an injury also, when he was working, he slipped on a carpet and went face down on a tile banging up his knee and skinning his elbow, its a good thing he didn't break anything thank God.  But because of that, they have to cut his hour and he missed work for couple days (not paid) because his knees was swelling and the doctor wanted him to rest for days.  I don't know the laws over here, but I think they should pay my husband when he was resting for 2 days, of course they shoulder all the expenses from the doctor's check up but my husband lose 2 days of salary and that hurt our budget.  If only we can afford to hire a lawyer like a Personal Injury Lawyers so that we can now our rights as an employee and ask about a workman's compensation.  I guess its okay, all that matters is my husband is in good health now, back to work again, just overworked, tired and exhausted but his doing good.  Thank God for a responsible husband, may You always bless and guide him.

Slowly but surely

Its been 4 weeks now that I've been working out again, I go back to my exercising again, doing yoga and zumba for at least 2- 3 times a week .  I really like it especially yoga, its relaxes my mind and body after doing it.  I only wish I have a Muscle Stimulator, so that its easier for me to build my muscle, as we know if you have muscle its harder to gain weight. I was thinking to buy some exercising machine, so that I have a motivation everyday to exercise and it would be easier for me too.  I saw some online, like this website LG-TEC Dual Combo TENS Unit and Muscle Stimulator, they have a variety of things that you need, and if you need TENS Units for muscle pain they have that too. You can  Visit LGMedSupply Online for more info.  It important for me to exercise, not just to achieve good health but for reproductive health also.  For all of you who doesn't know, I have been diagnosed with PCOS "polycystic ovarian syndrome", its a hormonal imbalance thing, its a pretty common for women in child bearing age.  There's a lot of type's of PCOS, a majority of women's who has PCOS is obese or overweight and they have diabetes or high blood pressure or they have thyroid problems.  Luckily for me I don't have all of these, and I'm very much thankful to God, except that I am overweight with some acne (but it gotten better since I arrive here in US).  My only problem is my menstruation is not normal, I have a problem of ovulating every month that's why I have a hard time getting pregnant.  I hope this is the start a good thing for me, and I will be able to exercise and have a motivation to do it at least 3-4 times a week.  I also start brisk walking too, I think its fun and refreshing.  What about yo?  Do you have some health problems, and what did you do to cure it?

A Little Help Will Do


The last time I blog about applying for an Unemployment Benefits now called Reemployment here in Florida, I was so frustrated because the process was so long and complicated that I almost give up and say to heck it with and just forget about it.  To all of you who doesn't know what unemployment insurance is, it is a joint-step federal program that provides cash benefits to eligible workers.  Unemployment insurance payments are intended to provide temporary financial assistance to unemployed workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own, meaning you got fired from your job but its not your fault or there's no misconduct on your part.  Each state sets its own additional requirements for eligibility, benefits amounts, and length of time benefits can be paid.  Also you should have worked for at least a year, that's one of the requirements before you can apply for a benefit.  The benefits is based on a percentage of your earnings over a recent 52 weeks period but depends on every state, so you should check with your state first before applying for a benefit.  And also benefits are subject to federal and most state income taxes and it must be reported on your income tax return.  We are lucky we don't have state tax in Florida lol.  Anywho after almost a month of waiting I finally got my unemployment benefits, last week I got paid for the first time, so I am very thankful that I did not lose hope and still continue claiming my weeks online.  I have to say thank you also to the agent who handle my case, he keep telling me to continue filing and claiming my weeks for my benefit.  Thank you Mr. Troy of DOE.

Its not really a lot of money, its like half of my paycheck when I was still working, but its a big help for me right now.  And I am thankful to God for it, even though the economy is going down hill but there's still hope I know, especially for the people that help themselves.  I hope I can find a real job soon, one that I like and I would love.  Its not easy to receive unemployment benefits, before you can file your weeks you have to show them that you were looking and applied for a job, and it has to be five each week.  So imagined you have to do these until you can find a job.  Its not fun at all but of course you can't get anything easy and  free.  But I'm not complaining just feel bad the other people who abused the government right now, I see a lot of people on EBT or Snap, I don't have a problem with it as long as you deserve it, but a majority of what I see there still very healthy and not disable so meaning they can still work but just lazy? Hmmm
