What's Going on..

Let me tell you I hate getting paid on Mondays. No I have not found a new job yet, for the moment I am getting unemployment. Basically it all goes to bills. I have little to nothing left after. But at least the bills are being paid. The thing that stinks though is we don't get our money deposited into our account until Monday. So we have no money for the weekends. Not that we are doing much right now, 

I have to go a stagette tonight for my cousin. And we are going out to dinner beforehand. Luckily my cousin Patti offered to pay for my dinner, She knows money is kinda tight and I would do it for her if our spots were switched. Otherwise I do not think I would have been able to go. After I buy cat food I will have $6 til Monday. FUN!

Other then that, no money, life has been OK. Besides my Mom has been having some issues with her Blood pressure going high, they checked her heart and they say there is nothing wrong with it. She had a 24 urine test Thursday to check her kidneys just in case, and she had a cat scan scheduled for Monday to check her stomach to see if for some reason she has some type of tumor in there that is causing the issues. 

She was OK yesterday early afternoon, I took her to take the 24 urine test back, so they can do their thing and she was fine. She called me last night about 11:30ish from the Hospital. Her heart was racing and her blood pressure was up again, this time they admitted her, she has been to the ER 3 or 4 times in the last month and they just kept sending her home.

She called me this morning, she is doing OK, but they are probably going to keep her til tomorrow. They really don;t know what is going on. Hopefully they do the cat scan while she is there, to rule that out or confirm.. 

She is talking and sounds pretty good. Just wish they could figure this out, and she does not have to go to the hospital anymore.. Please send all your positive thoughts my moms way!

Til next time

The last couple weeks....

                                                 So what have I been up to? Not much..

                          2 weeks ago I did go to the beach in the first time in years and it was great.
           Sam had a great Time. It was just My Cousin Patti, little Sam, and our friend Carrie

                                           Please Excuse the Squints it was very sunny out!

            The Beach Goers minus me as I am taking the picture.. Crossing the bridge to paradise!

                                  Then that same week I had a bridal shower for my other Cousin..

                                                                   The Bride to be and Me

                                                           Patti and I at the Shower

                                 Our table plus the bride to be before the others got to the party

                                                            The Happy Family to be

      It wouldn't a shower without games, and I happened to win the big game and this was my prize

Then just to keep things interesting I had to take my mom to the ER on Wednesday. She has been having some blood pressure problems that they cannot figure out, and was having chest pains. So we went in just to be sure. They did a bunch of tests and cannot find anything wrong with her Heart which is a good thing, just hope they can figure out exactly what is going on with her soon. She is doing good right now.

OK so maybe I have been up to more then I let on.. but that is about it. I am also expecting my first Unemployment check ever to be deposited into my account. Unfortunately it does not look like it will be cleared to my account until Monday. Which I was hoping it would be today, I have nothing left, so we will have to muddle through this weekend to get through to Monday. Though it is all gone to bills anyway before I even get it.

Sigh.. the life of an unemployed person kinda stinks!

I'm still here..  well we survived our first week of no work. we will see how this week pans out.

last week pretty much did nothing, we both just kinda took that week off to recoup. Now we can start looking for work. hope it does'nt take too long.

so anything new?? I may still be able to see the Idol Live concert; My mom has a friend in Kentucky and she still wants to see the show, so we may go to Kentucky to see my mom's friend and go to the concert down there. But the catch is its in 2 weeks.

my mom said she will pay for the tickets and the plane tickets, its kinda far for the 2 of us to drive alone. We will just stay with my mom's friend so no hotel cost's. Just gotta run it by Damien and I am all set. we consult each other on these type of things.

I feel a little bad leaving him here while I go, as he is bored also.  But I don't think he will mind as it will only 3 or 4 days.

that is about it right now..

till next time

Unemployed day 2

So this is my second day officially unemployed and i really have no idea what to do with myself.

Getting unemployment is not easy, its supposed to be but I don't know if I did it correctly and now have to call to double check.

I hate this not knowing what I am getting week to week. I really need to know so I can make sure my bills are paid. I guess my day today will be spent picking up the house and going food shopping.

but I have no idea what next week will bring us. This really stinks. I wish we had a bunch of money saved up so we did'nt have to worry for a month or two. But we don't. We were always the week to week family. And now week to week is not good. when you have no idea what each given week will bring you.

and let me tell you there is absolutely nothing on tv during the day. I am so bored and this is only my 2nd day being home with nothing to do.

This was a pretty boring post I know. Hopefully I will have better things to say later. Sorry All!


Edit to Add.. Just found out the American Idol live tour that I go to every year has just been canceled for the location that I have tickets too.. OK world Enough, I do not think I can take any more disappointment in my life at this time..

When it rains it pours...

Well things just keep getting better and better  

Well Today Damien and I  both got Laid off today. Within a half hour of each other. Not because we did anything wrong at all we were told. Just beacause the are making cut backs and we are part of those unfortantly.

Little surprising to say the least. Damien has been with our former employer for close to 9 yrs. Me almost 5.

So we are both out of work at the same time. Newly engaged and jobless. Great! I am sure we will find other things that will probably make us happier. Right now it really sucks.  I really have never been in this situation before. I have never been laid off or let go from any job I had.

and while they insist it was nothing we did, and if they pick up they would call us. but really after working there for 5 and 9 yrs we really would not want to come back. I hate to say that I no longer worked there. It was a great fun place to work for. I am going to miss some of the people. Esp some of my recent co workers.

but we will try to stay in touch, though that never seems to stay the case.

Well I hope everyone Else's 4th of July is better then mine. I have a annual picnic to go to tomorrow which I am still going, I have been looking forward to it for months, I may be sad but what is missing it going to do? Not bring back my job.

now I have to figure out this uemployment stuff out. Well We will start all that Monday, Guess I now have all the time in the world.

Shelly :(
