  • We told my mom that we would decorate her home here for Christmas as well as take everything down when the time comes.  Since my husband was sick, the kids and I started on the indoor stuff on Saturday and Sunday we did the outside of her house.  Her late husband loved Christmas and all the decorating stuff.  My mom was having a hard time with some of the stuff.  He passed away about a month ago and it's really hard.  I love my mom so much and I don't want to make her sad, but I think we really needed to put her Christmas stuff up and I think it's a part of the grief process.  When I went through my 2nd divorce, I grieved for far too long.  My mom is tough, but I know it will take her time to grieve the loss of her husband.  My heart breaks for her and I'm glad we can be there for her some and that we have a big family to rally around my mom.
  • Feel bad my husband and I couldn't attend my SIL's 50th birthday, but we were both sick, him more than me.  Having a hard time dealing with the cold and this cough.  As of this writing, Monday, I feel better.
  • I love leftovers.  My husband sometimes likes it, if it has bacon it.
  • This cough that I have is totally awful.  Hate it.  I don't have much congestion but this yucky cough.  More golf ball on the feet, now using a facial inhaler (facial sauna turned inhaler) with Eucalyptus oil in it.  Taking my supplements, trying to get sleep.
  • I actually took Sunday off and did not do any subcontracting work.  I think this is the 2nd day since beginning of August.  My husband doesn't like that I work 7 days a week, neither do I, but I get paid more on the weekends for each job than I do on the weekdays, but I am committed to M-F work.  
  • Learning that I'm way over qualified for a lot of jobs, which makes me unemployable at those places.  I don't know how many jobs I've applied for that I am over qualified for.  Maybe they think I'll leave when I find a better job?  And, then for jobs I am qualified for, I've been out of the field for too long and competing with others that haven't.  And then, of course the ones that I have no qualifications for that they want qualifications, that's a no brainer.  Wow, how does someone get a job in my position?  I am grateful for my sub con job, but I work all the time and it just doesn't pay enough.  Well, I'm going to keep applying.  I've been to job fairs, gotten help with my resume at resume workshops & interviews.  Wow, can be discouraging and trying not to get discouraged.
