Bunches of stuff

Tomorrow Starts 3 weeks of job assessment for me, I will work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 12-4 for those three weeks. I am only doing part time because that's what Dvr wants me to try first when I actually apply for jobs is to go part time and if I can manage that and think I can do more to see if I can't go full time with the job that hires me. I don't get paid for the 3 weeks of work that I will be doing which kinda in a way sucks cause it would be nice to have the extra money but I don't mind volunteering my time. So I am moving on up and getting even closer to getting a job.

I have my check up appointment today for my toe, to see how well it's healing. I am back in my regular shoe which is oh so nice cause I am not limping any more do to difference of height of the shoe and sandle thingy that I had to wear. Hopefully the doctor likes how it's healing.

I spent over $350.00 on work clothes on Friday so I have stuff to wear to the job that I'm volunteering at cause I am to treat it like I am actually a paid employee. The nice thing is, is that it wasn't my money or mom's money, it was money from DVR.

Richard is back on his day shift, thank god, it was so nice to be able to sleep with him next to me in bed the last two nights, talk about a good nights sleep. Actually would have been better if Kramer would stop sleeping right next to my head.

gotta catch em up!

I thought I would share what has been going on since my last blog. So Tuesday afternoon I had surgery on my toe to fix the ingrown toenail I had. I am now missing part of my toenail, and it will never grow back because if it does, its just going to do the same thing over and over and over again and I would be back at the foot doctor every 6 months. So I have a funny looking toe but I rather have a funny looking toe then a sore and infected one. It doesn't hurt at all which is a nice change and hasn't hurt since he numbed it on Tuesday.

Well Richard and I have survived one week of his overnight shifts. So one week down one to go. I'm not sleeping well so I have been sleeping longer and longer into the morning. I wake up a lot during the night and toss and turn more with out him here. Kramer has also taken to sleeping right next to me during the night which also doesn't help with my sleeping. He has the entire other half of the bed and he insists on sleeping right next to me. I have kicked him off and moved him over and hell I have even moved to the other half of the bed and he follows me. I gave up after the second night of this and just sleep around him.

Yesterday Richard and I bought a new computer, our laptop that we have had since 05 has so many issues that it's time to retire it. It's favorite thing to do to us is shut itself off, it will just randomly decide to shut down, we thought the first couple of times it did that it wasn't getting enough air flow so we have it propped up to increase airflow so it wouldn't get so hot. But sometimes it shuts down right after we have turned it on and it has finished loading, we never know when it's going to do it and its so infrequent that we can go days with out it happening then wham it shuts down. It's running slow, takes forever to load something and now when we turn it on we have to keep canceling something that isn't installed on the computer anymore from trying to download again. We will still keep it around of course, but we now have an actual desk top computer. It's actually at Best buy still getting all set up for us, the geek squad is making recover disks for us and uninstalling all the free trial stuff that comes with the computer. We shall have it prob this afternoon. We have the monitor here and I can't wait to start using it. We got a 23 inch monitor to go with the computer, nice and big so tht will be fun.

Toe knitting nightshifts

Today at 3pm I go in to see a podiatrist about my right big toe that's been infected since November. It's an ingrown toenail that just wont get better, I thought I had it fixed a couple of months ago when I was able to get the nail out from under the skin but the nail was broken so as it grew out the part after the break went right back under the skin. I am in lots of pain when it gets bumped or stepped on or when I even mess with it to clean off the puss that oozes out of it. So hopefully after today I won't have to worry about it and it gets better.

I have started a new adventure into knitting. I have been able to knit scarves for about 5 years now but wanted to try something new. I am knitting a blanket for myself, it's going ok. I have made a few mistakes but since this blanket it just for me it doesn't bother me. Plus you learn through your mistakes, I already know I can't knit blankets and watch tv cause I get distracted and goof up. I will post pictures when I get more of it finished then what I have already done.

Richard is working 2 weeks of overnights which is hard on both of us. He doesn't like working overnights because he leaves me alone at night and would rather be home asleep with me then working. I don't like the overnights because I don't sleep well with out him in the bed with me. I have gotten to the point that I can't sleep unless he is snoring. I turn into a very light sleeper when he isn't in bed with me, I hear every little noise and creak the apartments make. I sleep with my cell phone next to me and a metal bat next to the bed on the floor. I know when he comes to bed in the morning because all of a sudden I'm sleeping better and deeper for a few hours till I get up. Though I am still extremely tired through the day. I call or text Richard right when I am about to head to bed so he knows that I'm ok and that I am going to sleep. It puts his mind at ease knowing I am safe and in bed. It's just something I have always done when he works overnights and I will always do it.

Till my next blog, be safe, and have fun.

Origami getcha, and rantings of a makeup less person

It's puffy bunny time! I have been dabbling in origami for a while now, still can't do really complicated ones yet but they easier ones aren't much of a problem. I think these bunnies are just to cute. plus an easy way to decorate for Easter. I know its early but I was bored so I wanted to see if I could do them. I can also make a few different kinds of boxes, a turtle, a heart, boats, hats, cups, dogs and cats.

In other news, I have a cold. It's not a bad one yet, just a runny nose, a cough and sneezing for the most part. I feel a little run down today but I hope it doesn't get much worse then this. I can't afford to go to the doctor right now, as I am trying to save up so I can go to a foot doctor to have them look at my toe.

On the whole getting a job thing, I am where I have been for the last couple of months, no where near getting a job and close to getting a job at the same time. The lady that I have to meet with on a weekly basis is driving me up the wall. I have met with her 5 times now and we do the same thing every freaking meeting. She forgets my resume, tells me that she is waiting to hear back from people to see if they will let me volunteer my time at their job place so I can see if I like the the area of work I am trying to get into, telling me that I need self confidence but then telling me I need to wear makeup, giving me backhanded compliments like I like your hair pulled back like that it makes your face look longer and thiner. What I hear is, it makes you look less fat. She tries to pry into my personal life, notice I said tries, she doesn't get very far cause I don't see how it's any of her business. She thinks I'm depressed and need to be on meds, I'M NOT!!! I don't look forward to going there at all. I rather get shot in the leg than deal with her. Plus she makes me dress up to see her, she wants me in my new work outfit she picked out for me and have make up on.

This lady even told me that I should dress up every once in a while when Richard and I go out, I responded to her that I wasn't going to get all done up just to go through the drive through at taco bell. She pestered me about why I don't talk about my dad, then tells me that who ever raised me taught me wrong about not having to put make up on to go out, she says you need to put makeup on every time you leave the house! UGH!!!!!!!!
