I feel like I am always apologizing for not posting as much as I would like too. I guess that is just life these days. I do want to let you know what is going on.... Everything is as crazy as ever. My Mom was visiting for a few days. She likes to go shopping while she is here because we have good stores. LOL. We went to this thrift store close by. I didn't find much but I did pick up a homedics massage chair for $4. We have the same one at home and we spent about a gazillion dollars on it. The one I bought is missing part of the cord but we can pick one up for pretty cheap. We are going to sell it. So, if you are in the market for one - let us know. We can work something out. Otherwise we will be posting it on ebay. We also went to Gabes, Kohl's, Once Upon a Child....I was shopped out. It isn't much fun shopping when you can't really buy anything. OH, and we had all three kids with us because Jake was sick in bed all day. He slept forever. But, he is feeling much better now.
My Mom left yesterday. She took the kids (well, Jude and Elise) with her. I think Jude already wants to come home. It sure is quiet around her with out them. I am planning to get some stuff done but so far - I haven't really. Jake and I did go to CVS and I bought a ton of stuff. We spent $23 and got back 25 extra bucks. The receipt said I saved $98. Pretty good. We also did a little dumpster diving. I will save all the details for a separate post because it is a serious story in itself (I will tell you I ended up at the police station!). That is so mean, isn't it? But I want to tell you about our job search - I'll start a new paragraph for that....
Okay, I had my interview on Monday. It went really well. The woman told me she was going to offer me the job after checking my references. I can't wait. I think it is going to be the perfect job for me. After I get the offer I will give you more details. I will tell you that during the interview she told me the job is mostly telling people what to do! See - perfect job for me. It is going to take my best asset and put it to good use. When she said that I told her I'm great a telling people what to do! She laughed. Oh, and remember I told you I bought that sweater from Goodwill for a dollar to wear? Well, Jake put it in the dryer and shrank it a little. I did some stretch therapy and it was fine. I wore it. One of the first things she said to me was, "I really like your sweater." I did refrain for telling her where I got it and how much it cost - you know I love to do that. She probably wouldn't have cared. Heck, she works in social services - she probably shops at Goodwill, too. Anyhoo...getting hired it always a process - checking references, getting finger printed, doing background checks, checking my driving record....it is all going to take some time. In the mean time - Jake is applying for a great job that I will let him tell you about. And, next week I am working with this woman from our church. She works for this fund raising company and the other lady that works with her is going to be out of town. I am going to will the fill-in person. I think it is going to be fun and I will make a few bucks.
For now I need to get going - I've been on the computer for like 2 hours trying to catch up on everything. Hopefully I will have time later today to tell you about the dumpster diving. I know you are probably wondering......Don't you love the suspense?
