New Week

First day back to school, so a whirlwind of papers, outfits, friends, and plans. I have one each in elementary, middle and high school so it's a little crazy. I made it to the gym with Dad today (he is eager to go, so that helps.) I was rocking out on Muse "Uprising" which my 13 year old introduced me to. My heart rate got up to 159 on that which is rare for me-- I usually can't get it above 150. Doing well with my goals, except I need to charge up my band and get that on. Stunning weather in the 70s so trail walks should be appealing. The only major cloud on my horizon at this moment is the need to Find a Job. I hate jobhunting, but continuing to pay $1400 a month in Cobra is not an option (DH is self-employed). Hopefully I can find something 16-24 hours a week that will cut our insurance bill. Cross your fingers for me.

PS That pound WAS a temporary boarder. Now if I can just persuade a few of his friends to leave with him.

  2. Not the greatest environment for job-hunting, but I wish you all the luck in the world. COBRA is an absolute b*tch!

  3. Glad to read you got rid of the temporary boarder. Like you said, now some of the friends can go too.

    Good luck on the job hunt. It is never fun. Keep your eyes open though, there are some great opportunities out there. I can remember once when we really needed insurance, my wife got a job at Aldi (the grocery store). The pay sucked, and the hours were few, but the insurance was 100% paid, and it was good. Kind of makes you stop and think. The job wouldn't have been worth it otherwise, but the insurance made the difference.

  4. Thanks for the good wishes, my dears. I have an RN/BSN and recent experience-- I went PRN (as needed) for the summer. I should think about Aldi, geez! 100% paid, that's a job right there!
