1) How do I handle a termination on my work history. I was there for 12 years before I was let go for making a stupid mistake? Trust me I learned from it.
2)How do I handle professional references if I have not spoken to anyone I used to work for in over 2 years?
3)Where are the bet place to apply if my only availability is weekday morning/early afternoons?
I have a job currently and have had it for a year. It is not a good fit for me... I need a new one.

1- I would still list it on your resume. If you get an interview and they ask you about why you left that job (or if there was a gap between that job and the next), be honest but emphasis how you turned a mistake into a learning opportunity.
2- Try to use current professional references if possible.
3. UPS, schools (as a cafeteria worker/monitor, substitute teacher, parapro), local restaurants that serve lunch, etc. This will really depend on your education and past experiences. If you post what you have as far as education and experience, I could possible offer more ideas based on that.
