Saturday

OK...so I did not know what to title this.   Sitting home on a Saturday night watching the new Arthur movie with the boys.  We have free HBO and Cinemax this weekend! Woo Hoo!  Things are good!  We are going to see Mom tomorrow. Her birthday was yesterday.  69.   We are going to see Mama Myrtle at her new digs at the assisted living tomorrow too! I hope it goes well.  I am going to take my camera.  It seems like forever since I have taken any pictures!  The job is going well.  A little far to drive but I can tolerate it.  I also am enjoying my class.  I really have not learned anything yet....I have already taken two computer classes.  I took my first test.  I got an 82 out of 100.  I guess I really don't know everything yet.  I feel really good and positive about the direction everything is going in now.  That is a good thing!

Two Weeks In

Well, two weeks  into the new job!  It has gone well.  I am glad to be getting a steady paycheck again. It is great that this new job is in the same industry as the last one I was at for 10 years.  It makes a difference with my level of confidence.  I am not too fond about the commute though.  60 miles round trip!  I can do it though.  I just got off the phone with a good friend and she is commuting from Dallas to Baltimore every couple of weeks or so. The things we do for a job!

New Year

Well it is time to start a new year!  A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks!  I have gotten a job and I start work tomorrow!  It has been a year to the date since I was laid off from my previous job  of 10 years.  I am looking forward to starting anew!  I do have a little apprehension about changing up the routine but I know after a couple of weeks I will be fine.

 The boys go back to school tomorrow.  I will miss taking them to school and picking them up.  I hope that they will be cooperative in the morning with their sister...she will be taking them to school.

  I had signed up for classes at the community college...Digital Design.  I will now have to cancel three of them.  One of the classes was at night and I am going to keep it on the schedule.  I still want to pursue this vocation.  It will take a little bit longer to get a certificate.  I knew that once I started moving forward.....something good would happen! 

The other event that happened in the last couple of weeks is that my sweet grandmother is showing the signs of Sundowners Syndrome and Paranoid Dementia.   She just turned 88.  It is so sad.  She will not be able to go back to her house.  She cannot be left alone.  I hope with medication some of the symptons can be controlled.  Only time will tell.
