Big Changes

Old Grizzly Mama got the job. Here's hoping that it will work out. I'll be working the graveyard shift. I just have to pass the drug test this week and formally accept the position. We get the information to enroll the girls in school starting in the fall.

Big Changes. I'm scared!

Thank you Mr. GG. It is easy for me to forget to take things one day at a time. I do need to be reminded of that..

changes are always scary, but things will work out... they usually do.

Best of luck with everything.

Congratulations!
Gee, do you think you'll pass the drug test? heehee

Change is scary, but I know you'll accomplish whatever you set out to do! Go get 'em Grizz!

Congratulations on the job, but I don't envy you with the graveyard shift. I used to work that shift myself many years ago before entering the monastery.

Don't worry about the changes, you can handle it, especially with God on your side.

You probably won't have a lot of time for blogging though.

Congrats!

One step at a time. I know its going to be scary for you but after the first week of school the girls will probably want to be home schooled again because of the home work they will come home with. Just take a deep breath and relax. Go take that hot bath you recommended yesterday to me. I havent gotten that far. Maybe tonight.

Thanks Zendo. You are right, things work out one way or another, right? I don't like change. Waaaah. ;-)

Tshsmom - no worries about passing the drug test. lol. Although I got a bit paranoid on the way there because the lady told me not to drink TOO much as a dilute urine sample is a bad thing, too. So. I was worried that I might be too dilute. We'll know in 24 hours! Thanks for the encouraging words.

Thanks to you too, Abouna! The only time I actually feel human is working graves. It's weird. I think my time clock is whacky, because it wasn't until I started working nights at the tender age of 23 that I realized I was finally where I belonged! lol. When the girls were babies and toddlers and up and rarin' to go in the early a.m.'s I was a mess! In fact, my entire school life as a kid I was a mess. I don't do well during the day.

Thanks CA. Okay. I had to go look that one up on dictionary.com! :-)

Tweetey I think I'll take you up on that suggestion, thanks! I hope that you have been able to get your long, hot bath after dealing with all of that subzero weather and snow you've been having. The wind, the wind, it started up again today. Whistling and banging the windows - freezing cold wind. YUCK! Apparently the little one will have 1/2 hour of homework on average, but the big one will have 90 minutes on average of homework p/day! Wow. They're going to be hopping. They are really excited about this - and I am, too. I have a good feeling about this little school. I must - otherwise I wouldn't entrust my kids to them. It's a pretty big decision but I am feeling that it's the right one for now. And they can ALWAYS come back to homeschool when they need to.

Some people say change is good, I say it just is - it's as unavoidable as the decay rate of Strontium-90. Work to your strengths!

That's right, DC. Sometimes it works out good and sometimes it doesn't. It's always happening, though.

I'm not sure I could pass a drug test right now. With McCain as our nominee, I am going to need some self medicating.

I know, Mike. It really is horrifying. We have to vote for him, though. Can't give it to the certifiable commies, now can we?

Ah, a fellow night owl! I know what you mean about am hours being a train wreck.

Congrats on the job. :)
