Almost called 911 today. Jim almost blacked out and had severe chest pain.
Jim's job is thinking about opening up a new position for him. It would be kewl. He would have his own office and same hr's....but more $$$.
In a real case of irony or HUGE coincidence: We passed by Rick yesterday. On the side of I 395 with a tractor trailer truck tipped over. My heart was in my chest already cause driving up to it we could see tons of cops and dirt across the road (someone else went into a ditch). I hate seeing traffic accidents. I am always afraid it's going to be someone i know. After we passed by it just felt like an omen.
We went into Boston on Saturday. We took the train and went to the Children's Musuem(sp?) with passes from the town library. We saved ALOT of money.
Jim see's the cardiologist this afternoon. The kids both have eye appointments tomorrow.
In my health news: My arm is messing with me. I've been looking online and found something as a possiblity and hopefully it's wrong.
Jim's appointment went about as well as expected.
We need to start seriously thinking about signing him up for SSI.
Which gets to screw with my plan completely. Unless i do the night classes.
Maybe wait till tax time to sign up for SSI. We need to talk about this cause for SSDI(with disiabilty) married couples can only have $3,000.00 in assets. I'm sure because we both were out of work for 4 months we will make a killing on our taxes again. So we need to think about it.
We need to get all the Dr's (cardiologist, vasuclar surgeon(foot/leg issues) and the eye dude) on the same page as to weather or not he should realistically be working. If things don't start turning around with all his issues SSI/SSDI are going to be def options.
Before he even starts applying for SSI/SSDI we need to get me a full-time job. I'm going to work 6 months full-time somewhere then do the classes. It would not benefit me at all to do it all at the same time. I would get so worn down. I'm not pleased about it but i see the point.
We called the people for the van loan. We deferred payments till at least September. We need to get our heads above water again.
In good news: My Aunt and cousins are coming up from NC next wk. A bunch of us (me and the kids, sister and her kids, my parents, my godmother) are all going to have family reunion at a hotel in NY state. I can't wait. The last time i saw this Aunt (dad's sister) was my Grandmother (dad's mom) funeral. *J* was almost 2 yrs old? She is very kewl. I still remember her sitting up with me in the wee hours of the morning after my middle cousins wedding talking in the kitchen. And after my Grandmother's wake....all of us sitting there in the family room just talking and laughing.

When we signed up for Tufts insurance last Nov the HR person at Jim's company screwed up and sent the WRONG amount we pay MONTHLY to Masshealth. Lovely, right? Come to find out (because the insurance went up about $30/month) that the check we've been getting from the state to help cover the kids on Tufts has been WRONG this entire time. We should be getting almost $500/month not almost $300/month. We are trying to fight to get Masshealth to pay everything retro-active.
I am so freakin tired of getting screwed in life.
Well, Masshealth says that it's legite. They are going to send the request for the retro to the state. We should hear something in a few wks.
We will now be getting $526/month to help with the insurance.
I'm past being done with Macy's. Saturday night i closed. One of the temp/on call people closed the watches/fashion side. Before my boss left at 6pm, she told the temp/on call person SHE was in charge for both her and me for the night. Umm, EXCUSE ME? but, WTF????
Then, Sunday. God i almost walked out. She waits till 5pm to take me into the office and talk about my June #'s. I got me 2nd reminder. Well, DUH my #'s sucked because YOU gave me 3 wkends OFF! I'm bringing that up tomorrow. I am freakinpissed. She wants me out of there that badly to get the temp/on call person in there. Not a freakin problem.
The family reunion thing went awesome. We had a GREAT time! I got some good pic's of the kids with my cousins kids.
Jim's eye thing is thursday.
Saturday we go to Six Flags with his company. It's one of those deals where you pay so much ($7/person) and you get free parking, free food.
I have a new Nephew.
Brother and SIL's son was born this morning by planned C-section.
Thats it. No weight or anything.
Why? you ask.
Instead of calling FAMILY they call his work and have them announce it over the radio.
Can we say dysfunctional family?
Yesterday was awesome! the kids had such a blast.
As per my usual, it had to kick in a very distant memory (or a few). We were driving home on the Pike and Jim wanted coffee. It was late and it reminded me of something. Yes, this is going to piss someone off. Do i care? Ya know, if you had asked me that before the answer would be yes.....right now,it's a definate no. Anyways. When i was at Endicott College i went on a little "road trip" with one of *E*'s friends. We went to pick this persons dad up....in another state. Yes, it was overnight. Yes, we shared a hotel room. yeah, so anyways....the memory it kicked in? Stopping at the Charlton rest stop for coffee and pretty much everything else that happened then and later when *E* did become abusive towards me. In my heart, i know this person did only have my best interests in mind. He tried very hard to get *E* and i apart but i had to be the stupid one and think i could change a guy. He was the one who called 911 when i got dragged across the floor by my hair.
The other memory? God, this was so long ago. In 7th or 8th grade. Me and 2 of my best friends when to Six Flags (it was still Riverside then) and i was in a fight with one of them. We both liked the same guy and since it was someone from the other friends church and she saw him first, she wanted his # first and didn't want me introduced to him. Well, i got introduced to him at a church function at a lake. I liked him. I do wonder what ever happened to him. i guess i'm weird like that.
