Good News From The Doctor
I've had a Doctor's appointment.  I was verry nervious - new doctor.  Everything went well, though.  IVE LOST 15 LBS!!!!!!!  My blood pressure is much lower.  I can taper off the Prozac.  A good day.

The Move From Hell
Well, the move was completed the last week of April.  Been unpacking,  Had to rent a store room.  Store room is so packed with stuff that I can't access what I want and have to go through a box at a time.  Will take forever.  Sigh!

But, it;s nice to be back in the old home town.  Reconnecting with friends and family.  I didn't realize how depressed I was where we were.  Which is probably a good thing.  I am much happier now and may be able to go off antidepressent.

The Move From Hell
The move from Hell has been completed.  2 weeks of furious packing and lots of physical misery.  As my DH says, we must really love each other if we still want to live together after this move :)

Storage unit is crammed full.  Don't know where anything is. 

Moved Saturday and still trying to get our living space set up.  The cable guy came this morning.  so, will have cable tv and internet access soon. 

Feeling pretty good about the move.  Mom is verry happy.  She didn't want to live alone anymore & didn't want to move to the distant city we lived in.  Don't blame her for that.  We were not happy in that city either.

Scarborough Renaissance Festival
Had a wolderful day today.  My husband and I went to Scraborough Renaissance Festival.  I had a makeshift gypsy costume.  Husband really didn't want to wear a costume.  I swear that by next Renaissance Festival I am going to have a better costume!  We are thinking of going to Texas Resnaissance Festival in October.  We went a couple of years ago and that was really fun, too.

I really wanted to buy a nice bodice.  But they were really expensive!  The boned tapestry one I really wanted was like $250.00! There were some less expensive ones but they were not as pretty.  I think I will make one or order one from an online vendor.  I'd really like to loose some weight and I just can't see getting a really expensive costume now - can't afford one anyway!!!  But I can sew one just as nice for much less than they were charging at the faire.

What Big Cat Are You?
You Are a Black Panther
You see through people. You understand others' motives and plans.
You have a knack for predicting the future. You just know what people are going to do.

People are attracted to you. You are naturally able to influence other people's thoughts.
You have the charisma to be a beloved guru or dictator. It's all about how you handle it.

Catching Up
Long time, not posting.  I had to make another emergency trip home to take care of my mother.  She is having problems with aging joints.  3 weeks away from a computer and no time to go to the library :(.  She is a little better but really needs someone to shop for her and take her to dr's appointments and company.  I am an only child.

My husband has finally been convinced that we need to move back to home base.  I have really missed family and old friends and have been homesick for quite a long time.  I  he is happy to be going home, too.   He talks non stop about people he wants to reconnect with and hobby clubs he wants to join.

My husband has put in for disability.  He has lots of complications from diabetes & other health problems.
I hope he gets on, we will know in 3-6 months.  We had to apply 2 times to get my grandmother on dissability and she had a lot wrong with her (years ago).

Job Interview
Well, the job interview went really well.  I don't know about the job though.  I know I can do the actual job which involves a lot of monitoring of equipment and some techie computer stuff which does not seem too hard to learn.  The problem is that after a week or so of training I would be alone at night in the TV station.  Not to sure about this.  I would be able to call 2 people, both engineers (my supervisors) if I had any trouble.  I have no trouble being alone - I am a self starter and don't really like to be around people anyway - the night thing bugs me, though.  The neighborhood is fairly safe and it's 10 minutes by car from my house.

I have not been offered the job - but I might - he said position would begin around April 1 -

Job Interview
I've got a job interview tomorrow morning at 11AM.  It's at the local television station.  The job is called "Master Controll Operator".  It's the person who switches the shows out.  Doesn't pay much.  But, good potential for growth.  After sending out 1/2 dozen applications and getting no response it is good to have an interview.

I think I would be good at a job like this - I am good with computers, detail oriented, and would be happy working by myself.

For a Christian person, I bitch and whine far too much.  I think I need to start keeping a gratitude journal.

Feeling a bit better today.

It's been raining and cold for a couple of days and is supposed to rain off and on all week.  I can see how people who have harsh Winters get very depressed because of the climate.

Today, I am very greatful for unemployment checks.  And that the car repair bills were about 1/2 what was estimated.  And that I get such a good discount on my medication at HEB.  And for my husband who loves me no matter what.  And for my mother who also loves me no matter what.  And the roof I have over my head.  And food to eat.  And lots of other things....
