We went to the beach today, a family day. A gorgeous, sunny, not-too-hot, wonderful day. And I am so happy I do not have to return up North because school is starting back up again. I even told The Man how extremely happy I am today… except for not having a job yet.
No, I didn’t get the job that I was hoping for, and I took it a lot harder than I expected. I do have a part-time job teaching scrapbooking at a local craft store. I haven’t signed any paperwork, but it’s pretty much a done deal. This kind of part-time, though, will be very few hours, at least at the beginning, and rather low pay. So I am still looking, and follow up on my other leads. But I’m not as discouraged as I was late last week.
Because I don’t have anything lined up, I now need to investigate insurance options for The Boy. I have to determine this week if we qualify for any of the state programs. If we don’t, I have to start shopping for health insurance, which is a pretty daunting task.
I guess the silver lining is that I have the time to do this, and the time to meet with The Boy’s teachers, and attend his orientation (at 9am in the morning?!), and do this research on health insurance.
Like The Man keeps telling me, I’ll take it day by day. 😉
