I went to unemployment office this morning to have my hearing. It went ok. I stated my case as to why I feel I should not have to repay back the money that was given to me over the summer. The Referee listened and then stated he would make a decision. I felt it went good.
I feel I am back on track today. Yesterday evening I got into the Halloween candy and felt myself slipping back into the who cares attitude of eating anything and everything.
I made a decision today that this was not going to be so and that I was going to eat heathly and start back on exercising. I will not let the demons of life get me down.
I am still overdrawn at the bank, but tomorrow I can put money in there to hopefully make everything straight and I will budget and keep track of spending and hope and pray that I do not overdraw again.
Onto bigger and brighter days.

I woke up this morning feeling absolutely horrible. I had a terrible headache along with my stomach feeling upset. I stumbled out of bed and made coffee and ate breakfast and felt a little better. I made myself contact my dr.'s office and ask for a 1/2 of a Rx for my Cymbalta. Amazingly there was no problem and the nurse totally understood the mail order situation. I took one of my pills and got on with my day. I cleaned the bathrooms and started doing some laundry. The nurse came today to discuss my MIL's needs now that she is home. There will be the alphabet soup coming to the house again, PT, OT, SN, HHA and an SW. My MIL also needs to be on a special diet, so the RD or the Registered Dietetian will be sending that to be in the mail. All of these lovely people will be coming to our house along with my youngest son's alphabet soup of his own --- his BSC and TSS. Anyhow, I got it all straight with the nurse. I thought maybe I would be ok today and not be stressed or upset about anything and then I opened my bank statement. I thought I had dodged the bullet yesterday when I deposited my check, but apparently not... I once again had overdrawn my account, so there were all these lovely overdrawn fees in there. But, I did put some money in the account today and hopefully, I will be in the black tomorrow. One thing I learned about being overdrawn again is that I need to limit my spending on using my debit card. I mentally calculate that I am doing ok and then when the dust settles, I am overdrawn. I need to take out X amount of real dollars and use them, that way I won't be overdrawn. Tomorrow I am going to the unemployment Referee to hear my unemployment case. I hope it goes well...

What a difference a day can make. I guess that is why there is the saying of taking one day at a time. I thought I would be extremely tired this morning, but amazingly, I wasn't. The weather was beautiful. We had a lot of sun. I did a new temp job today which I was really nervous about, but turned out to be ok. My MIL was discharged from the hospital. We had no kids with us at the hospital. Our wonderful friend took the two younger ones out to dinner and our older son was working, so my husband and I had dinner in the hospital cafeteria alone. It was nice and relaxing. No kids to worry about being bored and/or acting goofy. Payroll gave me my lost paycheck and there was no fee for the stop payment. I immediately deposited it into the bank. I would have loved to got some exercise in, but by the time we got home from the hospital, then I had to help my kids with their homework. Hopefully, tomorrow I will get some good inside or maybe outside walking in. Well, getting up at 5:45 is catching up with me, time to go to bed.

Today is Monday and I think my body is still on daylight savings time. I slept so soundly last night that when my son woke me up, I didn't know why or what was going on. I worked today and it was a good day. When I got home, things got crazy. We were supposed to pick up my MIL at the hospital, but the dr. never discharged her. I did not take one of myanti anxiety pills last night because I need refills and I sent for them, but it can take awhile, so I am trying to take them every other day until they come. My son got an in school suspension today, so I had to deal with that. I fortunately or unfortunately was at the school when I had to talk to the teacher and assistant principal. I never did find my paycheck, but the school will give me a new one, but may charge me a stop payment fee to replace it. I need to come up with some organizational skills to stay on top of all the paperwork and things that come into our house. With 6 people in this house, a 91 year old live in MIL who is not in the best of health, I am responsible for all the paperwork, bills, mail and stuff. My husband has been working a lot of overtime lately trying to make extra money, but never has helped with paperwork. This should be fine as I work part time. I don't like doing all this paperwork, but there is no one else to do it. I try to be organized as best I can, but something is not working right. If anyone has any tips on organizational skills, let me know...

Yesterday being Halloween, I normally would eat quite a bit of the candy that I was giving out and some of my kids. I really did not do too bad. I had a couple pieces yesterday and one piece today. All in all that's good for me. I have been busy all weekend. Sometimes weekends are worse that weekdays. My MIL is still in the hospital, but the good news is that she will not have to have surgery. Good/bad news is, she is coming home tomorrow. I'm glad she is coming home, but the couple of days without her was not totally a bad thing. She will be on more pills, due to having to take antibiotics. I hope she doesn't have to take them too long as I am the pill lady and it can take a lot of time to set up her pills every week. I found out I have MRSA which is a nasty staph infection on my cheek. The dr. drained it on Saturday and it is a little better, but still not gone. I got a shot of antibiotics on Saturday and am taking a lot of antibiotics. As if that were not enough, I think I lost my paycheck. It was mailed to the house on Friday and I swear I put it in my purse. I went to look for it yesterday and it is not in there. I cleaned my purse out, looked at every nook and cranny and it is not in there. I have searched the house and can't locate it. I don't know what is wrong with me that I can't be organized. My mind is on a million things. Maybe I have adult ADHD. Well, I can't stay awake any longer. Hope everyone enjoyed their extra hour of sleep.
