Thank you everyone for the emotional support.

Some of you may remember I was going through this last summer. During that time I spent hours on the phone trying to find a way to get this situation tolerable. At the time I was given a lot of ‘net work and I was able to work at the mall (my father took the car that was given to us and got rid of his old car but took me to work, I had to normally have my sister pick me up or beg a co-worker to take me home which sometimes could cost up to $20 for “gas” fees… lovely co-workers.. really) but then he stopped taking me or taking me very late and it caused a lot of problems.

Anyway, Matt is going to be on the phone for a few hours tomorrow seeing what is hiring and finding a way to get to these places to apply. It’s hard because we don’t have a single friend in the area.

I am also going to see if I can’t get the phone bill down, if I can get it so I have a basic phone line to recieve calls that might alleviate some of the costs, I never talk on the phone anyways and my sister and I just use our webcams to chat every few days and I talk to everyone else via IM.

Onto other topics heh, my sleep is still very messed up, I went to sleep around 6:30p, woke at 11p went back to bed at midnight, got up for good around 3:45a or so. Stress is not conductive to good sleeping lol.

I have a bunch of hostee applications piling up but I am waiting to hear back from a few current hostees and I don’t know, I am sort of stressed out in general hostee wise. I’m not sure why exactly.

Still hoping for a couple more beta testers for a pagan journaling community we are setting up for Pagan@Osn.

There is so much weird energy in the air, I am starting to think it has something to do with the upcoming blue moon / sabbat. I wonder if anyone else is feeling it?

I’ve cut down slightly, just a wee bit, on soda consumption. I actually drank a weeeee bit of water yesterday. It’s a start! I need motivation though heh, years of drinking soda is a hard habit to break.

I am trying very hard to have at least my morning not be horrid.

Wee chublet went back to sleep on the bed, he is all sprawled out, he woke up, ate a waffle, watched some food/home shows, then passed right back out. It’s funny, say Matt is in the living room, I am in here, so I go “MAAAATTTTT” in pretty much the highest sonic level voice possible, well wee chublet here mocks me! He giggles and goes “MATTTTTTTT” only 80 times louder than I could ever do it. My son. Mocks. Me.

Hmm, I suppose that is it for now as I listen to my 1000+ mp3s and this is after deleting a few hundred heh, and zone out until chubs wakes up for the day.

I haven’t received anything from you in a bit. I hope I didn’t miss something that required a response.

Sorry you’re stressed about the hostee situation. Not sure why but am sure you have reason. 

Hope things look up soon for you!

kind of makes me feel bad to see you say you “don’t have a single friend in the area”.

I hope something comes up for you real soon.

I know what you mean about the soda habit, I’m trying to kick it myself, unfortunately there’s no 12 step program for us soda addicts ;)

Wow it’s really hard to believe that someone with so much talent like yourself is having a difficult time getting by. Don’t worry. Things will look up soon.

Oh and I hope I didn’t neglected my hostee responsibilities.

I know how you feel about the soda. I tried to cut back too but that only lasted like a week and then I found out that the new Pepsi edge has 1/2 the calories and tastes the same. lol.

Anyway, good luck with the job hunt, I’m in the same boat.
