Let's see... for those who don't have Facebook (where I post frequently) much has happened over the past year or so. A has moved back in after being homeless for a year and a half. He came back to B-town last fall and I invited him over for Thanksgiving. He hung out with us for a week and then couch-surfed at a friend's. Again, we had him over for Christmas and on Christmas Eve, he received a call from the Mall offering him a job. He had been applying everywhere and we were so excited for him. He started right after the New Year, went back to school and finished his GED and has been with us since.
He's still on probation but I'm very proud to say he's kept himself clean, hasn't called in sick once and even accepted extra hours when the store called him in. I bought a second car a month ago and he's using it strictly for transportation to and from work.
My job has slowly been changing and while I really thought I would be selected as the next Clinic Manager for my Department just recently, the COO gave the position to someone in Billing. Not sure I agree with his selection but it does lead me to believe he's not interested in experience in the occupation field... he's looking at the bottom line. Money. Why does it always have to be about money? *sigh* Meeting coming up next week and I'm already putting in applications at other sites.
My little SNOX (Z) is 8 and a half and brilliant! Yes, I may be biased but her test results from the state came back and she's in the 99th percentile in the nation for 2nd graders... :) Makes a parent smile, it does! She's no longer in gymnastics but really wants to pursue music.
Off to get a bite to eat and hopefully catch up with other LJs. Cheers!
