I have met with the case worker for Voc. Rehab. in reference to my injury and job placement. being in this program will help me find something that suites me in my current state of disabilities. however, it will take some time and until we get through all the paperwork involved, I may volunteer somewhere one to two times a week.. to slowly get myself geared up.
I am quite certain though, I will be unable to do direct patient care due to the permanent impairment to my arm, as I cannot do CPR… which is a requirement in my field. I hope I can find something that I will enjoy, and I am continuing to keep my faith that God has something just right for me.
as I wait for that part of my life to work out, I am enjoying more time at home with the fammmy fam famala. it is so cozy right now with the cold winter to sit and crochet, have the fireplace going, whilst watching TV with Diane. we have been watching quite a bit of the history channel, and some nights my sister and her MIL come over and we have dinner together, then play pinochle. during the day, we have Julian to play with and enjoy.. so I feel content most of the time.
I have my moments of extreme frustration over the little injustices of every day life.. my son’s truck broke down and so we had it towed back home because Diane is our family mechanic.. it needs a new starter motor.. the towing cost $135.00 and even though we have free towing in my insurance policy, they would only reimburse Alex for $70.00 of it..
I know the towing co. charged him way too much because we have been through this before and it has never cost that much.. despite my attempts to work it out with the tow co. and ins. they wouldn’t budge. it just rightly pisses me off when people take advantage of a teenager just because they are young and naïve.
then we woke up this morning to frozen pipes due to the below zero temps. thank God Diane is a handy candy around here, it took all day and finally tonight at 6:30 the waters came.. we will have to let it run tonight so it doesn’t freeze up again. unfortunately we had to cancel a lunch date with a very sweet friend of ours as I couldn’t cook with the kitchen in that state.
well it’s already Wednesday so enjoy the rest of the week, and for my peeps who are ill right now Godspeed to feeling better, PLEASE!
