Looking for the Positives...
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Well, in the midst of all the craziness, some good news has emerged... The day my daughter got out of jail, she was supposed to go to work, well, she called in because she was "tired" etc... and got fired. A day or two later, I asked her to THINK about going in and apologizing and asking for her job back. She was VERY opposed to doing so, but I told her just think about it! A few days later, she decided she wanted to do that very thing. So, Monday, she went in to apologize and ask and it did not look very promising. They told her to call back Tuesday at 2pm as the boss had to talk to HER boss. She called and was told she COULD come back to work on the 19th, but she would be on a 60 (instead of 90) day probation and if she called in for anything that was not a really SERIOUS reason, then she would be terminated immediately. This morning, they called her to see if she wanted to come on in and work 11-4. She DIDN'T really want to as she was tired, but I told her I had the gas and I would take her. She knew they were doing it to 'test" her and that made her angry, but she went anyway. I whispered a prayer she would calm down and then pointed out that if they had made her wait until the 19th she would go through a payday with no check at all, but at least this should give her a little one and that seemed to calm her some. We ALL love money don't we??
Anyway, whether she did it out of desperation or not, I still see it as a small sign of maturity for her to even be able to go in and apologize and ask for her job back! Having a job will look good when she goes to court too.
Another good thing is she got an "official" 30 days notice to move out of her apartment, they tried to scare her into moving out in 2-3 days, but she called the county attorney's office and they told her if her lease said she had 30 days, then she had 30 days! I know that does not "sound" good to get an eviction notice, but now, she has some time to figure out what she is going to do! I pray that she can find a place soon, but I don't know how she will afford it on part-time minimum wage and it will be hard to get a place based on income, since she lost this apartment and she has those pending charges now.
Monday, after blogging, I went through some stuff and got rid of two trash bags worth of old papers, etc... I really needed a shredder, but since I did not have one, I tied it up in bags and put it in the bottom of the dumpster. I got a little overwhelmed and ended up just chatting on FB before bed...
It looks like it will be at least 2 more weeks before we can move, so hopefully, I will be able to make good use of them and get stuff gone through, somewhat organized and "packed". Alot of stuff does not need to be "packed" because we are moving pretty close to where we already are and it can be transported in some of the stuff it's already in, but going through it, getting rid of stuff and organizing it will help alot as well as free some of the stuff "holding" it, in case we don't have room for all the "stuff-holding" furniture. Make sense?
Well, hubby is bugging me now about finding some food... we are out and out of money too... :( We'll figure something out. Mom said come over and she'd see what she could do. MOMS are the greatest! :)
