We are getting the retro check from the state!
God, we need this now. I'm tired of floating just about at water level and keep feeling like we are going to drown.
I'm putting in bunches of applications. The writing is "on the wall" so to speak. Macy's is doing bad money wise and everyone is running for the hills (and not just in our store).
I can't believe the kids go back to school next wk!! Yay!
*J* is 8am-2:22pm
*M* is 8:50am-3:05pm
So i figure get *J* up at 6:30, his bus should be here by 7:30. *M* will get up right after *J* leaves and his bus will prob be here at 8:30am.
So i can do something 9am-2ish pm.
Happy 6th Annvi Uncle Bill.
Wow. 6 yrs. I still remember it like yesterday. I remember i had taken a shower the night before and realized that my godfather and andy's had passed 7 yrs apart...and it had been 7 yrs since my godfather passed. I just knew. You were Katie's godfather. The memory of my father getting that phone call from my Aunt Pat will be with me forever. They were the best of friends. My dad was so crushed. I called Jim at work crying and the girls were worried about *M*. I was still pregnant with him.
I know i was really pissed at first. But, i've come to understand the "why's". I just can't forgive not leaving Aunt Pat some sort of note or at least giving her a chance to really say good-bye properly.
Uncle Ed (Andy's godfather) Sept 5, 1988
7 yrs later.....
Joe (My godfather) - April 20, 1996
(too coincendental that it's 1yr and 1 day to Zachary's annvi date)
7 yrs later....
Uncle Bill (Katie's godfather) - August 22, 2002
And it's eery to me still that my Godmother was in tower 1 on 9-11. She shouldn't be here. It's 7 yrs later for that and she still chokes up talking about it. I don't blame here though....she lost alot of friends and co-workers that day.
I feel like i have come full circle (if you will) so to speak.
I am movin on. I can and will do this.
Interview on Thursday with Jim's company. They have openings with the hours i'm able to do. :woohoo: Course, it means driving a little more then i'd like. We're going to have to figure out the car situation. If i'm going to be driving further (and more highway) then Jim....i should use the Van, or trade in my Marquise.
The following Tuesday i'm going to do the reading assesment test for the CNA/HHA class. I will sign up for the night classes....hopefully starting in Nov.
I am so excited for tomorrow!!
We've been talking about it. If (of course i will, damn it) i get the job i'll be using the van. We'll need to figure out something for the afternoons and the kids getting off the bus. I think i may have found someone good.
I'll be making more then Jim per hr (at least). We're not sure how much they start at but we're thinking at least $11-$12/hr.
I think i might stay with Macy's till after Christmas. I don't know yet.
Interview went awesome! One of Jim's biggest supporters is the person in charge of the division i'd be working under. Obvisously, we can't work in the same one. I should hear something by next wk.
In not good news: Jim's "client" cancer is back. They found the last tumor last yr and removed it. He went to the Dr Tues and they did bloodwork, the "marker" for the cancer is back. He needs to have a whole body scan done cause they aren't sure where it is this time. If something happens to him it's going to break Jim's heart.
I passed the first part!
They give everyone a test of basic reading comprehension and math. I know i'll pass the CORI. There is zilch on my record. I'm still going to have to wait till next wk though.
This is such a great thing for me.
I should be getting a call about the job tomorrow.(per what Jim heard)
I have a meeting set-up with one of the supervisers. I'm thinking it's probably going to be Jim's fav person. It's not till next wk...though. Then we do a "walk through" of the classes. I'm really looking forward to this.
I'm going to a golf tournament tomorrow. It's the memorial fund raiser for the friend of my sister and BIL who died in 9/11. It's something they do every year and all (or most) of the money goes to a scholarship set up in his name for a student going to Boston College every yr. I'm mostly going to be helping out with getting people registered and stuff. Afterwards, they have a cocktail hour, dinner, and silent auction. The last silent auction i went to i bought the HUGE red sox autographed "1918" Damon/Kapler thing. I paided $375.00 for that. Jim was PISSED until he saw it. I only told him how much i spent.
In not fun news. Tomorrow is 20 yrs for my Uncle Ed. He was such a kewl guy. He died a month before my oldest cousin had her first child....so he never got to meet any of his grandchildren. It's surreal that it's been 20 yrs. I was about to start my freshman year in high school. :puke: He was at a meeting at work (he worked in a hospital) and had a major heart attack they couldn't do anything to save him.
