Speaking of the 25th, that's The Boy's next court date. It's his adjudication hearing; we're talking about pleading guilty (or at least that's what I think his public defender will recommend). Hopefully, he'll get a year of supervised probation, and not be sent to detention.
I've received a few e-mails from a recruiter in the last couple of days about an actual job possibility. She's supposed to call today to talk to me about the job (3 month project as a contractor, with an option to hire me as an employee). She knows how long I've been unemployed - we'll see how the phone conversation goes. Think good thoughts!
Since The Mister has joined the ranks of the unemployed with me, I have felt a bit lost. When he was working, I had a definite rhyme and reason to my day: I completed tasks on various days, and had a dinner deadline. Now? Not so much. The house is messier than ever, and I don't feel motivated to do much about it each day. I NEED that pressure of a deadline. Now, other than getting The Boy out the door for the bus each morning, one weekday seems like any other - and I feel no real sense of urgency to get anything done. I am a supreme slacker. I gotta work on that.
I received IMs from Bride #2 (Tammy) yesterday from their honeymoon in Hawaii. Frank had a scheduled surfing lesson; Tammy was supposed to take a hula lesson at the same time. But the place that had the lessons was closed up - the poor economy is even affecting island activities. They're having a wonderful time so far!
Bride #1 (Erin) and Daryl are leaving for their honeymoon on Friday. Final destination? Niagara Falls, Canada. From the sound of it, they are going to be pretty darned busy!
Remember when I showed up for my training class a week early (because the OASIS coordinator told me the wrong date)? Well, The Mister did one better: He has started his H&R Block training classes recently. Last night, he left to attend his 9/15 class - only it was really scheduled for 10/15! What a wacky guy! He got the date wrong by an entire MONTH! Kinda makes my mistake much smaller in comparison. (Yeah, me!)
This past tax season, both The Mister and I were H&R Block-heads. I'm not sure I want to return for the next tax year. I was working for a franchisee, and earned a big minimum wage paycheck (blatant sarcasm). The corporate offices pay about $3/hour more.
Is it just me, or is the Fall TV season starting later than usual? Some of the shows don't even premiere until mid-October or later. A week or two more and the premieres could be considered mid-season replacements.
Speaking of TV, The Mister regularly rags on me for watching The View. Last night, I glanced into the man cave, and what did I see? The Mister watching clips from that very show on his monitor - apparently, Kate Gosselin (co-host for two days this week), changed her hairstyle.
If The Mister is worried about catching a reality TV show participant's hairstyle, it's a cry for help - someone please, give that man a JOB!
