I apologize for my few and far between posts, but as with everyone else I have been extremely busy with both the holidays and otherwise.
I have lots of good news to share. First, I was offered a full time job on Tuesday with the private ambulance company. I was offered more money than I thought and I also get to teach. I LOVE to teach. Anyway, Mon- Fri. 8a-6p no holidays or weekends. Next, I was off teaching last Saturday and the head instructor lives in the same town I do and we got to talking. He knew about my situation before as I tried to get a job where he worked. He was like you need to join the fire department here in town. Now this is where I'm still not sure I want to. I would be the only female in amongst a bunch of men who think women have no right to be in the fire service. Plus I would have to leave my kids alone while I was out on calls in the middle of the night. That does not thrill me. So like I said I haven't decided yet, but still plan to stay and work occasionally where I do now when the kids are not with me.
Next I found THE place. Girls it is awesome!!!! It is a 3 bedroom 1 full and 2 half baths, living room, dining room, eat in kitchen, basement, garage, newer carpet, and clean 1200 sq ft duplex. I LOVE it. The landlord is awesome. After we got to talking it came out that they knew my sister and BIL from church and live right down the street from them. I heard about this place from my neighbor's Mom who is a mail lady and knew someone had just moved out. Then my neighbor the plumber had worked on the place last year and gave me the phone number to call. I called went and saw the place and fell in love. It is in a nice neighborhood and below my budgeted price. I will take pictures when I can. I have already emptied out my attic which you will see pics of. I am packing up my sewing and painting stuff as I can move in January 1st.
This is my garage. The landlord says I can move stuff in the garage and basement before the 1st because they are redoing the bath room and it isn't quite ready yet. So I moved everything to the garage until this weekend. No laughing this is all decorating stuff!!!!! I got rid of a few things too. My neighbor the plumber came and picked out a few pictures, a shelf, and bird houses for his house that were from my more country days. He asked me if I had any other "crafty" stuff I would give him. Mind you he is 29 and a bachelor asking for "crafty" stuff. LOL. I told him I'd have to look. He has everything hung on his walls already. LOL. He is too funny.
OK ladies remember that guy who asked me for coffee awhile back? Well, he text me back this week and I think it is going to happen. He will be calling me tomorrow night. We have been texting back and forth all day for the last two days. So I will keep you posted. If you don't remember he's the one that is divorced with the daughter. Before you ask (hanging my head smiling slyly) he is younger than me. LOL. I swore I would never go younger nor see another firefighter. But guess what yep he is both. He is only a volunteer firefighter so I consider that ok. LOL. He also has a full time job and two other part time jobs. He is my in at Lowe's shhh anyone need anything. We call him "Tiny" yeah doesn't quite fit him. He is a huge guy. To see him he looks intimidating bald head, fu man chu mustache, over six foot tall and probably 280. But he is a gentle giant with a huge heart. No I don't have pics give me time. LOL.
The bad news is I started urinating blood again on Sunday. I went to the doctors again yesterday and didn't have enough blood in my urine for another scope, so once again it is wait and watch and go back when I have more blood. He just shook his head and said we'll find it. I just told him I liked to be difficult and he said your doing a good job of that. LOL. They sent my urine off for testing because it still had red blood cells in it. But I know everything will work out.
