Good interview today  
I had a nice interview today at a company whose products I've used in the past and would be happy to be associated with. The guy I'd be working for/with is really nice and kind of a no nonsense straight shooter. I appreciate that. I like to know where I really stand. :)

I felt the interview went well and we were both frank about where we stood in terms of what we're looking for. I am ultimately looking to segue out of bookkeeping into something else, and made it clear that I wish to be somewhere that I can move up a bit, even into different departments if need be.

Still looking at the local job board for anything interesting. I am hoping I have at least a week of downtime to recover from this job and get things together at home. I have unfinished projects and things left undone from my two months' worth of exhaustion with this job.

My daughter spent the night in her car again. I am biting my tongue to keep from nagging her to come up here and stay with us.

I did make contact with my dear friend Randa and she will talk to her relatives in case anyone has a resourse, a driveway to park in, or knows of someone who does. She is dealing with a health crisis in her own family right now, however, so I don't really want to burden her with our problems. I figure if she has time, fine, and if not we can figure something out.

So that's the state of things today. I am tired and cranky and just want to curl up and sleep.

Progressing slowly?
Is it just me, Tapati, or is it one of those days where even if you know it is moving forward, it just doesn't seem fast enough?

The daughter thing I can relate to in a way....since the son came home. We were afraid he would take flight at once, unwilling to live with his parents and all. But so far, he is hanging ok---we plan to construct a separate efficiency apt of sorts for him, tho' it will likely take us most of a year to get it all done. That way, he has privacy and a sense of independance---we know he is safe and ensured against being bounced by an asshat landlord.

My daughter is moving into a sort of stress with her own horrid landlord that makes me worry she her husband and child could find themselves locked out or some such bs. At least then, she really WOULD have to get the authorities on his ass. But it scares me, all the same.

I hope this job comes through for you, as I know it will be a relief of financial pressure I can only too easily relate to. Take care of yourself, too, tho' ok?

Re: Progressing slowly?
Yes this day simply crawled along and I didn't have enough sleep. So I got another migraine this afternoon. I was counting down seconds at work.

I wish I could make lots of money by doing something other than staring at a computer all day when I have these. But my heart health make the more physical types of jobs equally out of reach. In my heart of hearts I feel like I really can't work anymore yet I don't fit the legal requirements for disability. Yet there are all these fakers doing getting away with it. The person who had my current job before me filed for disability! She was clearly healthier than I am!

Sometimes I think it's harder to be the parent of an adult child when they are going through such hard times. When they were little it was easier because we could usually fix the problem. Now we're supposed to back off and let them handle it. I know that's the right thing to do but it's so difficult.

I am trying to take care of myself as best I can through all this.

You do the same! {hugs}
