Thursday's Homework Assignment - I'm a Keener

It's time again for

  "More Useless Information About Rhonda".

Aren't you excited??

The Prompts:

1.) Who made you red hot this week?

2.) A day in your life...recap.
(inspired by Jennifer from Toddler Tirade)

3.) What decision are you having a hard time making?
(inspired by Evansmom from Just Sayin')

4.) How will you enjoy your last days of freedom (aka summer)?
(inspired by Heather from A Day In The Life)

5.)List your 7 most favorite summer items!
(inspired by Summer from Le Musings of Moi)


1.
  • Who made me red hot this week? Oooh la la. We could go with the spider bite I got while in my sleeping bag that infected HORRIBLY!!! (And believe me, my calf couldn't afford to get any bigger, especially considering that the other one, fresh out of its cast, has gone completely to mush and is already smaller.)   
  • The other option would be the job stress that has caused my lips to break out in multiple, very tender, cold sores!!! Oh. My. Lord.

2. 
  • A day in my life? Since it is summer, life isn't as crazy as it will be soon. However, because you asked,  I just got up, went to work, started explaining to my wonderful coworkers why I was quitting my job, ate some chocolate, came home, ate more chocolate, witnessed a sibling fight, went to the library and grocery store, home to eat supper that I bought because I ran out of time, cleaned house, finish prepping Asia's wall for painting, put Liv to bed, blogged, read, and slept. That's it in a nutshell.  You'll notice that I did not get an iced cap today.  We should all be proud of me.

3.
  • My very hard decision, as I've stated above that my cold sores are proof that I am stressing, is this: I have been offered a full time job at a different hospital, a step up from what I'm doing now. This is full time, and I have not worked full time in 16 years. Not since I was put on bed rest with my first child. I have worked part time since then. I have worked a lot in the last few years, more than 40 hour weeks if we count all my jobs, but not a regular Monday-Friday 9-5, miss out on field trips and kids heading off to their first day of school, job. I have taken the position and am hoping for the best. It will be more of a commute, more hours, more pay (that will likely disappear the moment it is received and soon we will not know how we lived without this extra disappearing money). Asia has stated that she will miss her taxi, as she will now have to bus to school. Cass is worried about the times she will have to help out with Liv. And Liv will just go on, like little ones do. One of my main concerns is that my family will discover that they can quite easily cope without me.
4.
  • As it turns out, because of my new job and lost holidays at the end of August, I will bring in the last days of summer trying to get to the lake to join my family on weekends, but will mostly be at home, alone, during the week.  That's not such a bad thing, seeing as there are many, many things to get caught up on here. This house is sadly lacking attention to say the least.  
And lastly:

5.
  1. Slurpees - This is actually my favorite year-round thing
  2. Sunshine - I live in Alberta, which isn't too bad for sunshine, so I suppose I should be more specific and say "warmth".
  3. Books - Watch for the "What I'm Reading" post to come soon.  I've got some book reviews to pass along.
  4. Music - Played loudly and proudly.
  5. Freedom - From homework and schedules.
  6. Hair - I love watching the sunshine turn my little blonde children's hair to gold.
  7. Traffic - Or lack thereof. I love that most of the city must be either teachers or stay home parents.  It takes me 15 minutes to get to work!
Okay.  We're done.  If you hung around, and are still awake follow this link to go back to Mama's Losin' It.

And have yourselves a FANTASTIC Thursday!

Great blog!

Good Luck with the job situation. It is SO funny how the 'extra' money is gone immediately and you really can't imagine how you ever lived without it...

Good luck sweetie. Dad and I were talking last night about how we always hated that first day at a new job. We will be thinking of you, praying for you, empathizing with you - always glad we raised a champion child to become a world-class daughter! You go, girl!

Congrats for receiving the new job!! I´m sure you will be great at it, even though any job is hard at first.
I hope it all goes well with the new family schedule too.
And good luck with the home reno´s you´re planing.

Jamie said...

Okay... I had decided that I would comment on your bit about the extra money because I so agree with you and think it is so true then.... I read you are from Alberta..... me too! I don't think many of the blogs I read involve albertans!! Anyway - little things excite me!!

Congrats on the new job... and I am sure your family will not learn that they can live without you!

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
