    Today flew by! I guess that's good. We had a meeting at work from the Rapid Response Workforce group. They have information for employees getting laid off such as interviewing & resume workshops, credit counseling, unemployment, job search help, training, and etc. It was very informative and interesting. This just means my layoff is imminent....only a little over 4 months.

    For dinner, we had Beef Enchiladas. They were yummy as usual.

    We went to the Y and I ...

    Project a month: I have my room partly organized, I should be able to finish it in about an hour, if I could find an hour to be able to do it LOL.

So I came down stairs to get him so Tylenol, when I went back up He said that he could not take it because he was going to be sick, he would take it after. I got him comfortable, rubbed his belly and then he took the Tylenol. He fell asleep around 11 pm.

  4. Strange month

    by , 02-23-2009 at 04:17 PM (Travelling on the frugal path to Freedom)
    I've had some highs and lows this month for sure. I earned the money to get a puppy. We dodged first round layoffs. But have no idea what the future holds.

    I've revamped the budget and making a contingency plan.

    I'm finding myself a little obsessed with the news, it's so depressing.

    So I'm going to seriously limit my reading time online. I'll be using my library extensively and working with the kids to get this house cleaned up and spruced up. We'll be planning ...
  5. a musical weekend

    by , 02-23-2009 at 02:42 PM
    It's been a very musical weekend. Saturday was ODD's recital. She played "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" carter style. It wasn't the best I've ever heard her play it, but it was very good. Her favorite piece that she heard played was "The Entertainer". She really does prefer jazz and blues...I can live with that.

    Saturday morning I ran errands and stopped at Music Go Round to check on prices for cymbals and other drum stuff for MDD. I found a nice autoharp; now ...
