    In really, really good news. I will have a normal schedule in 2 weeks. I was offered a new job 10 minutes from home making $2 less an hour and working days. I am so frigging ecstatic about this!

        Getting this job takes a huge burden off my back. I have this sinking feeling winter is going to be bad this year and I didn't want to have to drive on the freeway for 34 miles one way in the snow. Plus, we have all kind of figured that where we are currently working will get rid of almost everyone by the beginning of November. Still not much work. Right now, we are losing on average 1-2 people a week to new jobs.

        When I told the girls about this last night, I got a ton of hugs from them as they are excited to have me home in the evenings.

          So happy for you. Yeah, I see a bad winter coming on too. Big spiders in my house, Deer developing very dark fur in September etc. We'll see if any of these traditional indicators are true or just old wives tales.

            Paula, have you seen any wooly worms in your area? I was with Caitlyn and her bff in a park for a homeschooling get together on Friday and we saw a dark brown and black wooly worm messing around the paths. My sister said she found a wolf spider hanging around her house. I got bit by a spider the other night.

              Congrats on the new job! With gas prices so high and what your time spent commuting is worth, $2 will hopefully be a wash financially, and a big plus for the family having you home in the evenings

                We have killed 2 wolf spiders in our house in the last week. Today my husband called me over to see a wooly worm. He was huge. Totally black. He had no brown stripe at all.

                  That's great about the job! Now, you all need to stop talking about this bad winter stuff. It's our first one back up north and I want it to be on the mild side. Don't jinx it!

                    OOOPs, sorry about the winter talk. I'm a teacher. I love snowdays.

                      If you wanted a mild winter, you should've moved up last year.

                      @Paula, I have killed one-two large spiders a week for the past 4 weeks. A couple of them made me squeal. I'm thinking of getting some crabapples to put out front of the house. I have been told that spiders won't come in homes with those outside of them.

                        Just completed my first post-op period and success! No bleeding/cramping, PMS symptoms are rather light. I just have been craving chocolate like a mofo. Still been eating junk. I just really haven't cared much to worry about diet.

                        Went to a funeral for a woman we've known for a few years. She's a second mom to my oldest niece, the mom of a couple of her friends and an all around good woman. She had a massive heart attack on Labor Day and somehow survived it but barely. The hospital kept her in a medically induced coma. There was nothing more they could do for her and she was pulled out of it Friday night and died right after midnight Saturday morning. She was 49. What was cool was that she was dressed in her Harley leathers. Thought that was totally bad ass and sweet.

                          I've decided to try to be happy with who I am right now versus worrying about losing weight and stuff. If I'm not happy with who I am right now, how can be happy with myself as I lose weight?

                            GREAT realization! We love you as your awesome self is right now. We just want you to be able to see that, too, which is why I'm so happy to read this!
                            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                                I keep telling myself "if others can accept me for who I am then why in the hell can't I?" I think this is going to be the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.
