Surgiversary number five

Today is the fifth year I've survived after my heart bypass surgery. I feel that I ought to have something of import to say but I have had migraines for days now and my sleep cycle is all messed up, so all I feel is sluggish and depressed. It's amazing to me sometimes how migraines have completely overshadowed heart disease in terms of impacting my life and limiting what I can do.

I dragged myself out of bed for a job interview today with Sutter. I'd be doing payroll full time for their hundreds of employees, along with a staff of three other people. I would be doing it to get my foot in the door of a large and properous company, basically. I have enjoyed doing payroll, certainly, and wouldn't mind doing it full time. But I would relish the chance to work my way up in HR and abandon accounting entirely. Sutter also has excellent benefits which is something I can really appreciate right now. I have a second interview on Friday.

My oldest grandson Jonathan is about to start kindergarden and my daughter has left to buy his school supplies. He and his brother have been staying with their Dad until she gets enough money together to make a home for them. Yesterday her future ex-husband informed her, as she went to see her boys, that they didn't know her anymore so don't bother. Goddess how I hate it when people use their children as a weapon in an difficult divorce, and hate it far more when it's my grandsons who are being so used. I wish I were fluent enough in Spanish to go give him the cussing out he deserves for doing that.

I am anxious to see how Jonathan does with school. I've been observing him for years and he seems to meet the criteria for ADHD. So we'll see how he handles school and how school chooses to handle him. Having seen schools do so badly with my daughter I have a little knot of fear in my stomach. Maybe kindergarden won't be so bad with just half a day to get through.
