Sorry about the unemployment, but glad you were prepared for it! Hopefully something will come up soon that will be a good fit for you and your family!

We had a "special" staff meeting at work today that our director has been acting very mysteriously about for weeks. The teachers have all been nervous. It turned out that she and the board wanted to surprise us with a little lunch. It was very nice of them. Generally, we don't feel particularly appreciated, but I guess that we are.

I am sorry I don't want to rewrite my facebook post so:

so today was supposed to be the last meeting of our bankruptcy time. Jim (I let him choose because it is mainly his debt) picked the absolute worst lawyer. This man has not responded to any of my queries and said that they could not get a hold of me today (or earlier via e-mail). I had my phone on loud and next to me all day. So that was a bunch of hooey. Of course, Jim didn't show up to the meeting either...thinking he didn't have to. This was after calling me five days before the last meeting and saying I HAD to be there or I wouldn't be included in the bankruptcy. I had told them from the start that I would not spend the money to fly out there, find a place to stay, lose at least 3 days of work, etc. for such a short meeting. As it is I took today off....one less day I could have worked (less than 20 hours a week scheduled now)...for nothing. If you had an important meeting that you needed to teleconference for would you not make sure you had the right number? I would!!

I will establish my residency here in MD in June. As long as I am employed I will be filing for divorce by my 40th birthday.

I kept misreading signs today (had to buy shoes and jeans and both times I thought the signs said buy one get one half off ) except the one only I saw. The one that flashed over my head after talking to Jim...You have done well Theresa, Don't look back!!

Good morning,

More applications & more "no's". I should just pursue my calling to be a pole dancer.

Of course I would have to put a bag over my head so no one would recognize me.

I'm thinking with the construction season coming soon I could do that if all else fails. Don't they make a ton of money over the summer then take the winter off I'd rather make a ton of money over the winter and take the summer off, but haven't figured that one out yet

If you ever get that one figured out, please let me know. It sounds perfect. I really do hope that you find something that is a terrific fit for you soon, though.

Anne Marie, good luck as you continue to look, too!

Nothing new around here. Another day with strange men in the house making noise and mess. It will all be worth it soon, though! It is freezing, and I need a nap, but don't feel comfortable doing that with people here.

I just saw a note from my husband that Matthew is having hard drive problems with his laptop. It's not even two years old. I hope that there is an inexpensive, easy fix. I don't know any of the details, though.

It seems like there are too many troubles for everyone around here. I am sorry that there is nothing that I can do but hold you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that soon everything is looking up again for all!

Nothing new to report. Just wanted to say I think about you all every single day. Thank you for being here for me.

Hi everyone, just wanted to let you know that I am finally getting some answers about my Vertigo. After getting an MRI done, which was negative. They did see a lot of lesions from all of the migraine headaches I have had in my life, but no tumor. Then an Ophthalmologist wanted to rule out Myasthenia Gravis because for about five weeks I had had double vision. Then I had a Videonystagmography test also called a VNG test done.
This one involved wearing goggles with a cover on and I would do various eye tests. It also involved having cold air blown into my ears and then warm air. That was very intense and my head hurt the whole next day. The one thing was that she also tested my hearing and told me it was perfect. That made me very happy.
The end result is that I definitely have an inner ear problem. So my ENT does not feel that intense physical therapy would help me, so he is referring me to another ENT specialist at Johns Hopkins. Not sure when that will happen, but I told him I wanted to get aggressive about this because I want answers. This is getting very frustrating not knowing how I am going to feel day to day.
Otherwise, my daughter Guenna is doing good with her pregnancy and miss Vivian Olivia is doing just fine. It is weird tho that right now she thinks she has an inner ear infection!!!!

I finally put a ticker on my signature cause I told all of the doctors that I will not give up my cruises. I am getting very excited since I have not seen Disneyland since 1968 and I think maybe it has changed a little???

Good morning, DDA!

Terry - I am glad you are getting some answers! And yay for a healthy baby and mama!

Bob is out of ICU again. He is actually back in the room he was in before the move back there! Lots of changes in his treatment that I see as positive. I will keep you up to date as best I can.

It is Festival Time and that means working 7 days a week until March 6, and I am running on fumes at times already. I know I have to do what is best for me as well as Bob and my students. So I am doing my best to stay healthy and rested.

Have good weekends, everyone.

Oh... in case I miss saying so tomorrow: Kristine!

Elin-I've been thinking about you and Bob. You must be exhausted. Glad to hear Bob is out of ICU again.

Theresa-UGH...how frustrating!

Deb-so sorry to hear about your job. Hope something perfect comes along soon!

Terry-Hope you get some solutions soon! Sounds like you're making progress getting some answers. Nice to hear your DD & baby are doing well.

Anne Marie & Janet-Good Luck on job search!



Work is still very stressful for me. Last week was awful. I found one $132,000 error and another $175,000 error and another $200,000 error. I do not make the entries-just analyze the financial results. I was starting to feel like they were treating me like it was my fault-you know-shooting the messenger. I have SOOOOOOO much on my plate right now I don't see how I can do it and being under so much stress isn't helping me to get it down well. I am working harder than ever and feeling less and less appreciated.

I'm glad that they are narrowing things down for you. Nick's neurologist has an inner ear condition that causes him to have vertigo. I'm pretty sure he told me that he takes some sort of med when it starts that makes it stop more quickly. That they can finally find the cause and a cure. I am happy to hear that your DD and GD are doing well.

The new ticker looks great on you

It's good to hear that Bob is out of the ICU and that the new course of treatment seems to be working better. I hope you can find some down time as I'm sure that you are utterly exhausted right now

Bernadette it seems that most people are feeling exactly the way you do right now. I can't think of many people that are happy with the whole job situation right now. So much down sizing has taken it's toll on most industries leaving those "lucky" enough to have a job feeling over whelmed and under appreciated. I'd love to give you some worldly advice, but I'm not sure that there's any out there

Terry - glad to hear Mom and baby are doing well, I know you can't wait for her arrival. Hopefully your new ENT will be able to give you answers and help.

Bernadette - Sorry about all the stress on the job front

Elin - glad to hear good updates on Bob, but please don't forget to give yourself a break, you're going to wear yourself out at the pace you're going.

After all the xrays and blood work they have decided that I don't have RA, (which is a good thing), but I do have severe osteo arthritis, which means the only thing that can be done is pain control. The phone call I got from the nurse stated that I didn't have any arthritic changes, I didn't know that she was referring to RA changes, I do have joint space narrowing and osteophytes (sp?), after her message I thought maybe my pains were all in my head.

Plans are still moving ahead for the wedding in July, I've been doing a lot of shopping online and packages are arriving daily, by July my shed will be overflowing.
