It's been such a long time since I posted. Could be one of two reasons for this: 1) I no longer need to vent on such a regular basis, meaning that this blog has served its purpose, or 2) I am so overwhelmed that I have no idea where to start!
Actually, maybe it's a combination of both. Is that messed up or what?
Seriously, things are looking really good right now. My husband has taken a skills assessment and been on a series of interviews for a position with the City of Alexandria as an Environmental Technician. At the last interview they gave him a summary of the benefits and a job description. The mayor still has to sign off on it, but it looks like he may get the job!
My daughter will graduate in May. She is seriously beginning to freak out.
My sister-in-law "found her a place" and moved out, but she still hasn't found a job. Why would anyone rent an apartment before they have a stable, steady income with which to pay rent! Auuggghhh! She comes around some, and seems sober, but I don't spend a lot of time in that part of the house when she is around. It may seem a little anti-social, but I FEEL a little anti-social. I figure the less time we are around each other, the less chance there is that I will say something I will regret.
I am still working at both my full-time and my part-time job, but things are looking up, now. I am content, and even beginning to be excited about this job opportunity for Hubby. Living in Alexandria will mean I have to drive little over an hour each way to go to work, but I have 10 years with the school board that I am not going to give up. And, we might find a place to live that is between here and there...
Okay, that's enough for now.
