Why not add one more change

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Things are back on track.

I don't know if it was miss communication or what, but after John realized what it meant if he stopped working this friday he came to his senses and is now back to working until the end of July. Thank the Lord! Back to the plan.

If I don't laugh I'll cry

So, John comes home from work yesterday and tells me friday is his last day! Don't ask me what happened. It doesn't make sense to me. In my mind I'm FREAKING OUT! I'm a planner and I thought all parties involved had planned that he was working up until the last day of July. We are going to be short 3 paychecks, and yes, 3 paychecks is a lot when its your only income! Now I'm scrambling to find a job. I think I've put in 10 applications in the last 24 hours. At this point I just want a job, I don't really care what it is. Although fast food is my VERY last choice. ....SO,
Today I must be strong and remind myself:

"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure"

I know John and I can do this. We just have to join together and work as a team to get where we want and do what we want to do. Everything will be OK. I have faith......

New blog finally

I haven't blogged in awhile, but nothing new has really happened up until now. I have finally starting looking into jobs I might be interested in starting in August. My number one choice is a teacher assistant in the Suffolk public school system. After looking into this job I have found that they are in fact in need of Teacher assistants in the upcoming school year. Teacher assistants are required to have 38 credited hours of college to apply and I have 60, so I feel that I would be a good candidate. If I get this position I will have all the same holidays as John except Spring break. (Speaking of which, I think its crazy that spring break is different for the public school system and college). Anyway, if I get the job our family would be able to spend pretty much all the holidays together and maybe even go on VACATION! That would be AWESOME. I have filled out the application and am sending it in on Monday. Cross your fingers I get the job. If I don't get the teaching assistant job I will have to start looking for other options, but until then I'm just trying to think positively.
John will be going in to the college next week to take his assessment test for math and English. In a few short weeks he will be registering for classes. John will be taking the majority of his classes online. He is required to take atleast one class on campus to qualify for the housing assitance program through his G.I bill.
Thomas has been to an interview for pre-school and we will find out in mid-July if he has been accepted as a role model student for the other children. If he gets accepted and I get the teaching assitant job we will be out of the house the same hours and John will only have to look after Nathan.
Things seem to be coming together. I'll update again when I have more news.
