Sorry I've been away so long - I honestly forgot about my LiveJournal. 

I may potentially have a teaching job, though there is a lot more to be done before that can be determined for sure.  I see it as a good sign though that apparently the principal really wants me for the job (it's up to the superintendent not the principal) and I am invited to sit in on staff training this week for the district's new literacy program.

I haven't even yet been able to apply for my license as trying to reach someone at UWM's licensing and certification office to answer my questions is almost impossible.  So that NEEDS to get resolved and done this week....

Tom and I (and Jay) have not found a place to move as of yet which is not good because we not have under 2 weeks to find somewhere to live.

Yesterday afternoon I noticed a strange bump in my left breast, so I'm going to see my doctor about that today.  She said on the phone that often women my age are going through hormonal changes that can affect the breasts, but that of course she wants to check things to be sure.  I have a friend who, as a senior in high school had a non-cancerous growth removed from her breast, but that was still scary enough.  I hope it's absolutely nothing at all, because I just don't need something else to deal with right now.

I saw my retina specialist a week ago and he said to come back in 3-4 months....my left eye is holding stable after the surgery, and while my right eye continues to bleed, it's slowed and continuing to slow and he wants to see if it will stop on its own, as further laser will lead to too much scar tissue and an increased risk of retinal detachment.  Again, something else I don't need to deal with.

I went down to Arkansas to visit Will/Will's family a few weeks ago, and that was fun.  I'm going again in a little over 3 weeks, assuming Will will have me - we are fighting, or rather, the fight is over but he's still extremely pissed off at me - if he ends up not wanting me to come, I don't know what I'll do; I don't think my airline ticket is refundable.

Hmmm, what else?

Oh yes, I was recently the target of some kind of scam.  I had to cancel my Discover card number and get a new account number a few weeks ago, as I was getting charges from some company claiming to be Google.  They were charging me about $74 at a time, and when calling their 1-800 number I couldn't reach anyone.  Discover said they've seen that vendor before and it's a scam.  How anyone got that credit card number is a mystery to me, as I haven't even used it in two months (I'm paying it off, and only using my Visa, as my interest rate on my Discover went up in January and is higher than my Visa by quite a lot.........(thanks Discover for ending my 0% APR you had promised me forever....))  Anyway, Discover gave me a new card number and reversed the charges for me, which is awesome.

And not to say too much, cause usually my entries about him/it are friends only, for his privacy but: Tom is doing much better.  (Now that I think about it, did I even mention that he wasn't doing well for a while?)  Anyway, he's doing better, and I'm so glad.  He's such a good person and a good friend, he doesn't deserve the shit he goes through, but he does it with a smile on his face.  I've only seen him lose it once, and even that one time scared the crap out of me....because it's so unlike him.

Will's little sister recently had a baby and the baby's middle name is Lynn.  I wasn't aware until 2 days ago that her middle name is after my middle name.  That's so amazing, and while I'm touched I'm also just a little confused.  I love his family, and I love the way they've embraced me, but I didn't think any of his sisters felt close enough to me to name their kid after me....it's a nice surprise.  I'm really touched.

Ok, well this is getting quite lengthy, and I'm sure I could think of a million more things to write, if I took the time, but I don't want to because my hands are cramping up, so I'll leave you with some sage advice:

Be kind to those you trust, trust in those you love, and don't let your faith waver, no matter the circumstances or oddities presented to you.  Faith, loyalty, truth, trust, and love will prevail.
