*shudders* I hate spiders. I'm convinced there's a large one in my flat somewhere, waiting to leap out at me when I least expect it. I haven't seen any sign of it yet, but I got home last night and had the strong sensation that there is one there. Call it my spider sense, if you will.

I'll be a therapeutic care worker for the Northwest Ohio Developmental Center, which is a sort of village of group homes. I'll be helping take care of MR/DD adults. The pay is excellent, and the hours will be in the evenings so I can go to school in the day next semester.

The only potential problem was that the training goes for two weeks, starting 11/27, from 10:30 to 7:30 each day. Which kind of overlaps my scheduled class time on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. [Eek!] I'm going to try to get into the earlier training session instead, but I mentioned to my professor after class tonight that there might be a problem and explained the whole thing. He said I shouldn't worry about it, he'd assign me some extra reading to cover what I'd miss in class and arrange for me to take the last test (and the final if need be) in the testing center. (He is the best history prof ever!)

So, squee with me! [Big Grin]

SQUEE SQUEE SQUEE!!!!! I'm so happy for you! That's wonderful news! {{hugs}}

Congrats on the job! I had a similar situation once when new job training overlapped a class. Thankfully, I lived at home and it was a class that my mom was interested in so she took notes for me for the first 2 classes. She ended up sitting in the rest of the class.

I was just reading the PS3 thread in Rantidote and earlier I was watching videos on YouTube about people camped out for the game system.

Then, I realized something. Shawn's in Australia and he works at an electronics/appliance store (much like Best Buy). He said that he had a crappy day at work- but it didn't occur to me to ask him about the PS3 thing.

Cinnamon If you be careful or know someone that knows anything about controllers it can be fixed, my mom fixed ours when it got stuck in a reclining chair you just have to be very careful, so all is not lost. Mine is still working till this day.

I saw that, too, but didn't want to embarrass myself if it happened to be just a typo. It reminds me of the time my sister called to tell me that our mother was deathly ill and was in the hospital in pretty bad shape. I packed a suitcase and made it to the airport just in time to catch a plane. After we brought Mother home from the hospital, I was telling her pastor that I had packed a slip but had forgotten to pack a dress, and maybe it was because I didn't want to go to a funeral. My sister noted that it was a Freudian slip. I thought that was so very clever, but later I found out that she hadn't even caught the pun. [Roll Eyes]

Minstrel's good job vibes must have rubbed off on me. After 3 1/2 months of looking, I finally got an offer yesterday. It's a part-time job, but after the full-time training it'll be time for the baby, so part-time doesn't sound so bad now. Plus the department is huge, and is always moving around their people, so the chances of me being full-time again are good.

All I can say is that it's about damn time we finally have some good things happening. [Smile]

W00000T! I just heard from my dad. His stress test on Monday, which he supposedly "failed" was not as bad as he originally was led to believe.

In the first place, he lasted a lot longer than expected for a man his age-- which was encouraging.

They are going to do another one on Monday with dye injection to see the blood flow, but the doctor thinks that it can be handled with diet modification and drugs, rather than surgery!

Happy Dance!

My friend told me last night that she saw my recently estranged SO at the place all of us hang out this past Sunday. She asked about me (because that was when I was still laying about waiting for my back to get better) and he said "I don't know. If she wants to talk to me, she'll call me." Which was why I was waiting for him to call me.

So I can't help but wonder if he's feeling as hurt and slightly bitter towards me as I am to him. He shouldn't feel as bad though, because he's the one who didn't call me when he knew I was hurt. I'm very conflicted about all this. I still really like him, but the time apart has made me realize that we just are not compatible for multiple reasons. I could call him and explain this, but part of me wants to see if he'll ever call. Morbid curiosity almost. Bah.

ETA: There, now that I've vented I can fully enjoy my evening. My friend is opening for a musician who has been on television (Adult Swim) and I'm very excited for and proud of him. [Smile]

After more than two years, the Kitten and her "boyfriend" have "broken up." She hasn't liked how he's been treating her (ignoring her on the playground, etc.), so she had a little talk with him today. He told her he "doesn't want to be your boyfriend any more." Little NFBSK doesn't know what he's missing!  -

She's okay with it, but a little sad -- we talked about it a lot this week, I sort of eased her into it and essentially told her she'd have to kiss a lot of frogs before she found her prince, not that I approve of kissing!  -

It appears she's already got another one lined up -- she's set her sights on a 10-year-old at her bus stop. [Eek!]

CatNip is both righteously indignant that anyone wouldn't want to have the supreme privilege of worshipping his little girl, and hugely relieved because no one is good enough for her anyway, and what's wrong with being a nun? He's not home, so I haven't told him about the 10-year-old yet. He's gonna freak out.

I almost did come ask for advice, in a "Help! I'm overwhelmed!" sort of way. [Embarrassed] Luckily I got the bright idea to talk to my professor first.
Well, now, see, that's how GROWNUPS act when there's a problem!

Four Kitties

DD, who's 6, has a crush on a teenage boy from our church. Thankfully he's very considerate about it & says 'hello' to her & such.
Her other crush is more her age. He's not mean to her but I don't believe he shares her affection. She's said before that 'Jason won't talk to me' or 'Jason didn't want to sit by me'. I informed her the other day that she might find a boy she liked more than this current crush & she looked at me like I'd grown a second head!!
