My life is getting better....

Well, I guess by now most of you know that my mum passed away (rather suddenly) 23 January 2008 (yes, just 3-1/2 weeks ago). Needless to say I was very depressed and still am to a degree...I often find myself thinking "I should call mum and tell her..." then I remember I can't do that any more. I finally (after 3 weeks) removed her telephone listing from my cell phone. I felt I had to do it as a step toward healing. Obviously this has been a very trying time for me...add onto it that although I started a new job 10 December 2007...I had a lot of misfortune in the following month...
First my bf at the time returned from a trip home to visit his family in Bangladesh (he went for 4 weeks and stayed for 9). When he came back we made some plans to get together the first weekend(when we were both off work) only he tells me he's married now and although he still wants to see me, we can't "go out" together (ie movies, dinner, etc) I wasn't long in telling him "buddy, you're married...we can't "go out" period...at all...ever! GET LOST!"
Then I got the flu and was sick for 5 days right after the Xmas holidays.
Then I went back to work and slipped & fell on the ice in the parking lot there (on the first day back after my flu incident) on New Year's Eve day!
Then I had food poisoning after eating at one of my favourite seafood restaurants in the city. *sighs*
Then I finally get back to work and find out my mum is in hospital in critical condition. I left early and went straight to the hospital (about 100km away) and she passed away the next morning.
No good times at all really.....until now!!!
I started a new job on 11 January 2008!!!
I'm still working in a call centre (okay I'm doing training right now, but I'll start actually making calls on the 26th, I believe). It's outgoing calls (to start), but that isn't as bad as it sounds. It's to existing customers of the company (local telephone company) to introduce them to other/new products (and to try to sell said products to them). Sounds easy enough to me!
I don't actually HAVE any products with the company at the moment, but I do BELIEVE in their products (for the most part), and I BELIEVE I can sell them to people who "NEED" them
Anyway...just thought I'd let everyone know what's going on in my life...at the moment (or in this case over the past month or two).
