Won't give reasons why I haven't been online much lately.
Everything is pretty much same ole same ole.
I have to take the AHA BLS/CPR class despite me already being Red Cross certified.
I have a interview Monday for this weekend gig helping people with developmental disabilities. The only thing that kinda raised my eyebrow is that part of the training includes a class that sounds a lot like a self defense class. If I get this gig I pray I don't get attacked. This job will hold me up a bit when I start school in January.
I never heard back from the gig helping a lady with CP on the weekends. I had funny feelings about that gig anyways so I am not going to make contact to see what's going on.
I have not been to the gym in about 2 weeks and I have been eating poorly...my body can physically tell it too. Time for me to get back on the ball.
My place is a mess but I don't feel like taking care of it just yet.
I saw Crank 2 yesterday. Never seen the 1st, just heard about it. All I can say is WTF? It was weird and all over the place but I liked it. Wally World has the first one on DVD for fairly cheap. I may have to pick that up and watch it.
I brought Pooka some cartoons last week. I tried to hide, but not hide them buy putting them with the other dvd's. Pooka noticed them within 10 minutes of coming home! LOL!
I am toggling back and forth the idea of getting cable. I don't watch tv much and Pooka likes to watch her dvd's over and over and over and over and over so I don't need it. But it's nice to have whenever I have company.
I joined an online group for deaf people and people who want to learn to sign or can sign and want to get better. It's run by an associate of mine. They meet about once a month and just hang out and sign. The next meetup is on May 1st. I am kinda excited about finally buckling down and trying to learn ASL. I am also toggling buying the Rosetta Stone system to get my Spanish up. I knew it was pricey but mannnnnnnn when I looked it up my jaw dropped! LOL! My birthday is coming up so if I can get 3 people to buy one part of the 3 part set I'll be cool! LOL! If I get this weekend job I can use the first few checks to go towards that investment. To know spanish and ASL in my career field makes you more marketable. I've wanted to learn both before, but knowing that it can help me in the future is icing on the cake.
So yeah, my additional goals for 2009 are learning basic ASL and Spanish, securing a 3rd shift summer job (which don't exist), and getting back to the gym on the regular. Yeah it's been 2 weeks but it feels like forever.
This summer Pooka will be at my mothers house. Am I ready for Pooka to be gone that long? Yes and No. I don't know who is more excited, my mom or Pooka! LOL! I already know that she will go to the aquarium with aunt Diva and Kings Dominion with her dad. I swear that little girl is blessed. Every time we go upstate people have already reserved time to take her somewhere and she comes back with new outfits and at least one pair of shoes. EVERY TIME WITHOUT FAIL! I feel like I am her manager cuz folks are calling me asking when so and so is dropping her off so they can come by the house and take her to such and such place. Not about what I'm doing, but what Pooka is doing! LOL!
While she is away having fun, I will hopefully have a temporary, 3rd shift, summer gig so I can stack more paper while not having to worry about childcare. If I can't secure a summer job I will live at the gym, the pool or both! LOL!
I am not crazy, really. It's just that I know that while I have free time it's in my best interest to place myself in a better position to succeed. All this stuff is temporary so I don't run the risk of burnout.
Lately I've been feeling like I've being driven by money. How much I need to make to cover everything? How much do I need to put aside if I want a house in 2013? If I switch childcare providers again how much more will that cost me (where Pooka is is great but I may need somewhere that opens earlier, closes later, and takes Pooka to school and picks her up which means putting her back in her previous daycare which is ALOT more than what I pay now)? How much $ in loans do I really need to survive next year? How can I offset that? Can I afford to leave the country for a vacation this year? Question after question and most involve money in some fashion. *sigh*
William Ford's people sent me an email talking about when I need to start officially playing with them. *sigh* Time flies so fast.
I need my car detailed and the interior needs a good shampoo job.
Life is life.
blah de blah de blah
Why did I just get a text from my father's wife telling me that she'd be delighted to keep Pooka for me if I land the weekend job? And would pick her up if need be???? That's a great offer but she lives an hour and some change away from us. Like I said...folks seem to love them some Pooka and wanna snatch her up!!!!!! LOL! Who is gonna snatch me up and take me somewhere?? ROFL!
