So today I attended a vocational rehabilitation workshop called Oasis. I don’t recall what that stands for, but they wanted to identify my interests, aptitudes, and abilities to help me go back to work. Yes, that’s what I’m aiming towards. It’s a slow process, though. They warned us yesterday that it will take three months […]
1) Auto insurance 2) My cell phone 3) My daughter
I’m so excited! We (our family) have been using Airset as our “groupware” for the past few years — a way to coordinate our calendar and contacts easily. Our criteria included something that would be available wherever we happened to be that would sync with Palm PDAs.
I looked back at my recent entries and realized that it’s been a really long time since I posted much of anything substantive. I’m coming out of a long period of being nearly zombified thanks to one of my medications. I didn’t realize that was happening, as I’d been on that drug for years without […]
Registration closes tomorrow, so I have to decide before the end of the day whether or not I’m taking classes for the summer semester or not. Bah. I want a break, but if I’m not in school my student loans come out of deferment. I’ve been reading—and loving—Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson books. They’re a lot […]
I consider Sunday the first day of the week rather than the last. It was a week full of appointments for the girl and getting paperwork shuffled to various bureaucracies. Sam and I had lovely dates Wednesday and tonight, although we were so exhausted Wednesday that we turned in much earlier than usual.
I just found out that DeVry didn’t “package” my financial aid for this semester. Huh? I registered the day registration opened, or nearly so, as I recall. I wasn’t scheduled to graduate. I did everything I’m supposed to do, in fact. Somebody there just dropped the ball. Why isn’t that sort of thing automated so that […]
This was, officially, the Day of Driving All Over Atlanta. Since Sam did all of the driving, and I actually only had to go to one of the five scheduled appointments, it’s ridiculous that I’m even tired. My poor sweetie is exhausted! We’ve all seen our respective health care providers, though, and Katie did most […]
Read it phonetically. When I’m really tired, I fall back into the Alabama accent. Made it to my appointment this morning. Made it to Katie’s appointment on the other side of the world. Then the car wouldn’t crank. In fact, it wouldn’t do anything at all. Not even the automatic door locks were working. No […]
A week into the Spring semester, I finally got my Winter semester grades: 99.7 in the career class, 97.6 in the project management class. I should still have a 4.0, then. I’ve got to get my and Katie’s FAFSAs done. I should have already done it. It feels so weird to think about the fact that […]
