Oh how I wish I felt free to talk here about my "other" business. But typing out words in this box is admissible in court. I can say that the 1st week of every month has me calling, emailing and knocking on doors. Listening to reasons why I have to pay for the roof over their family instead of them. Hearing dogs bark behind the door when there isn't supposed to be any, seeing dead grass and broken window blinds that will cost me later. This has been my "first week of the month" task for many years and I have seen it all. It's back breaking and heartbreaking to see the way so many people live, with no regard at all for other peoples property. OK 'nuff said since I've been blogging for a long long time without ever mentioning this.
I am taking my daughter to her eye doctor today. She made the appointment herself and then asked me to drive her (yahoo...she has an inability to ask for help.) I'm anxious to hear about how the small tear in her retina is (small tear 6 months ago.) She is legally blind and lost one contact during the recent ER drama and of course it was her last one. I am hoping I can talk her into trying glasses again since they don't run out.
OK...listen to this....Brother (my son) got a job !!!!! Yes, I'm telling you the truth. It's at a grocery store which sounded just like he had been accepted into Harvard when I heard the news. He started training yesterday. Now, what I'm worried about is that he said during the interview stuff (2 weeks ago) they said "we do a drug test" and he thought to himself "well crap, I will test positive for weed" but he said OK to the interviewer. On the way out they did a swab under his tongue (I'm not familiar with that test.) However, they did call him and offer him the job, so I don't know what that means except now I'm worried that when he showed up yesterday, they said "OH sorry, your test is positive." We shall see.
Hitting the shower now with a joyful heart and much gratitude for my sober life.
