Yeh guess what its time to catch up! I come to blog about 1 thing and then think about all the other stuff I'm forgetting to blog about.. So here goes.. This may be long and probably not in order..
First off our most recent adventure I got a job!! My years of being a stay at home Mom will be coming to an end. I'm forever thankful I was able to be with Kobe everyday since he was a baby.. When he was born in Feb 2006 I had a hard time after he was born. I had postpartum depression and I was a mess.. Finally in June I went back to work at the Daycare I was working at but Kobe went to a different daycare which my mom worked at. He would be with my mom all day where at the daycare I worked at I wouldn't be with him everyday.. So mamaw was the next best thing.. I was a mess at work... I would cry all the time.. lets just say I used the bathroom a LOT so I could have a cry fest. Finally a spot came open at the daycare my mom worked at so I applied and got the job. I worked in the toddler room which was ages 1-3 so once Kobe turned 1 he'd be with me again.. which was perfect.. before Kobe turned 2 my world started falling apart. My ex husband left Kobe and I wiping the bank account out completely.. I had to give up our home because my income wasn't enough to pay the rent. We moved in with my grandparents.. not long after Kobe turned 2 we finally got into government housing, not my proudest moment but I'm so thankful it was there in my time of need, just when I thought my world was getting better the daycare I worked at closed its doors and I was now jobless, divorced with a child living in government housing with scary neighbors that would stand outside my living room window and watch my TV lol.. freaks! So after that my sister told me she would pay me to keep my niece since she also went to the daycare that closed and she would need a sitter.. so I did that for a while then I picked up another child to watch and I was making some money and being a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom). Now fast fwd to this day.. Kobe is 9 (in a half lol) and I'm still a "SAHM" and I still watch children. I was on the fence about going back to college to become a childcare director and open my own childcare.. or just getting out there and finding the perfect job. There were a few jobs in the news paper and on the Community schools website that I was interested in so I sat down and typed up a resume. Which I might add is HARD when you have nothing to put on it.. I seriously googled "What to put on a resume when you are a Stay at home Mom" it was plain and boring and if I read it as an employer I probably would have laughed.. one job I applied for sent an email saying "Thanks for your recent application, but we feel another applicant was more qualified for the position." HAHA! Well DUH! But anyways I also applied for a secretary job for one of our local Elementary schools.. Which I found out in conversation with a friend that it was filled so I thought hmmm.. well thats 2 out of 4 I didn't get. I was very bummed because I REALLY wanted that secretary job. That would be PERFECT hours, no weekends, off when Kobe's off.. yanno just perfect.. So Yesterday I got a phone call from a local number so I answered and it was the Principal from Kobe's school, at first I was confused why he was calling lol. But he wanted to offer me a job at the school. He said he saw were I applied for the secretary position and didn't know if I'd be interested or not in doing something different.. I said yes I was very interested and I would love too.. So I meet with him on Monday at 1 to talk with him and get all the information.. I'm VERY excited!!! Once again Kobe and I won't be separated lol.. I'll blog again once I know more about it.
Now let's talk about this kid...
I think in my last blog I talked about my dad and him having back surgery.. well he was going to go back to work the last week of July but plans changed.. his leg pain was not getting better in fact mom had to take him to the ER he was in so much pain and couldn't get relief.. He was seeing his chiropractor and they were working on his leg and trying to get the pain to go away.. One night my dad noticed his leg looked swollen.. The next morning he went to the CP and he told my dad to go to the ER and get an ultrasound because he had a blood clot.. Sure enough he did.. He was in the hosital for 3 days and was to stay in bed and only get up for the bathroom.. They released him on Sunday and sent him home on blood thinners with no restrictions. His leg is feeling a lot better now.. and he is even able to go back to work on Aug 10th..
