Man, September was a doozy. I'd like to say thank goodness it's over, but I fear October may be even doozier. It all started with the loss of my job. Yeah, big blow there. After my breakdown and constant life-plan changing (and some big prayers thrown in there) we decided we were going to do all we could so that I can stay at home with Madeline. My previous job allowed me to bring her with me to work. Unfortunately I worked in the construction biz and we all know the economy has sent a bazooka shot at the construction market. I do have my transcription work that I do from home, but at the moment it's bringing in a whoppin' $300 a month. I'm still learning and pretty slow, and we get paid by the page, and since I'm a newbie they only give me the minimum amount of tapes. I'm not gonna complain though because it keeps me busy enough. My day consists of entertaining and feeding Maddie and the few naps that she takes I'm trying to get transcription done. I then have to stay up late and get up in the morning before she wakes to do more.
So back to my pity party, with Casey already working full time and going to school, working a part-time job is not much of an option (even though he keeps looking for something to fit his schedule). So we decided that we're going to try and rent out our townhome and move in with the 'rents ('rents=parents, I learned it from YM- remember that magazine??). So we've GOT to find someone to move in before the next month hits or you just may see me turn into a crazy lady. I'll start lugging Maddie around town from trash bin to trash bin collecting tin cans- Crazy Bag Lady Jessie.
