D.V.R. UPDATE: So I am getting ever closer to looking for a job. Monday and Tuesday I went to DVR for a clerical assessment and found out that I can type 34 wpm on a really really small keyboard. I would have done better I bet if it had been normal sized and not the smushed together one that I had to use. I kept messing up on the keys because I am so used to bigger keyboards that I would miss the key I was going for. I can also do numerical and alphabetical filing with out a problem, now to just improve my speed on 10 key. a little slow on that because I have never had to use it but I was accurate so that counts for something right? Now I just have to wait till after they move to their new location which happens Monday then they will make an appointment with me so I can meet with my councelor and see what she thinks we should do next, that could be testing me out at an actual job or sending me for some classes to improve on some stuff and learn the new Microsoft Word, we will have to wait and see.
In other news, the hot weather finally ended, it rained for a couple of days and today it is just overcast. I don't mind this at all, specially after all that hot weather we had, plus we really do need the rain to help with all the wild fire we have going on in the state.
We are also thinking of rejoining the gym again. we now have the funds to pay for it again since our care insurance payments are now below $100.00. We just have to wait till we get enough money in our account so probbualy after the first of next month after rent is paid.

Here I sit, the only one awake in my apartment with my back hurting and itching like crazy. The bed I slept on friday night has totally messed up my back it hurts so bad, I can't sleep and have a hard time getting to a postion where my back doesn't hurt long enough for me to pass out. I am so tempted to have Richard ask his dad for some 303 muscle relaxers so I can sleep. don't worry they aren't perscription drugs, just over the counter stuff. Hopefully his dad has some or else I don't know what I am going to do. I have soaked in the tub, put hot packs and ice packs on, taken advil, nothing works. UGH!!!

IT is WAY to HOT for me, my apartment is 80 degrees, if I'm not in front of the fan I'm sweating like a pig (wipes sweat from brow). Poor Kramer is so hot that he just sprawls in front of the fan or on the kitchen or entry way floor to try and cool off, poor long haired baby. I have to have my hair pulled up in a pony tail to help keep cool and even that isn't working very well. I love all the nice weather but I want it to cool down a bit too, the outside temps are in the high 70s to low 80's.

As I mentioned in an earlier post I have been playing a lot of pool lately. I just played for a couple of hours today and about 5 hours 2 days ago. Anyways today while playing pool with Richard and our Friend Marya we all looked at our hands and we each had chalk on our hands, which lead to Marya grabbing her iphone and taking a picture. I thought I would share it on here so from the top hand to the Bottom it goes as follows: Me, Richard, Marya.
The birthday party question has been answered, Marya answered it for me, I am going to have a small Lowe's friends birthday party on Friday, if all works out it will be Me (of course), Richard, Marya, Jenny, Brian and Sandra. I would of invited our friend Amanda along as well but she is out of town till after my birthday. So far there is going to be cake, chips and dip, possibly a veggie tray, Marya said she would cook something, Beer Pong, pool, music, video games, Gifts and soda's. A pinyada was mentioned but not sure if that will be there or not. So, so far it seems like it will be a lot of fun, now to just set the time and make sure people actually show.
Today was my Mom's birthday so mom and I went out to the Peanut Farm with our friend Carrol for lunch and then Richard mom and I went out to Outback for dinner. I think my mom had a good birthday, after we ate dinner mom went to go see a movie and well We went to play pool.
