The Imminent Inlaw Invasion begins in one day, sans one Inlaw. Unfortunately, Chris’ dad will not be visiting this time.
Yes, there’s more to it than that.
No, I’m not getting into it here.
Yes, Chris is disappointed, but he’s coping. Drop him a prayer or two if you get a minute.
Just found out my cousin Jodi is in the hospital with bone cancer. Went with Bobbi to see her today, and of course, she’s typically cheerful and optimistic. For those of you who don’t know her, Jodi is my grandma’s first cousin.
She is a beautiful, sweet, caring person who sat with my Mom a lot during her cancer treatments, and has never missed a wedding, bridal shower, or baby shower for any of us girls. Despite the fact that we (okay, I) suck at remembering to send Christmas cards.
I’ve added a link in my blogroll to CarePages.com, which hosts webpages where people can get updates, send well-wishes, and other such stuff for those undergoing lengthy illnesses. You have to create an account, but after that, put in her actual name (email me if you need it) and you get access to her CarePage where you can leave a note saying you’re thinking about her.
Starting a part-time assignment for Kelly Services on Tuesday. It pays pretty well hourly, and is “long term indefinite” working from 7:30 to 12:30. Which is just what I was looking for: a small, steady paycheck that will still allow me to run my business, assuming I don’t get offered the copywriting dream job. Hey, I like being prepared.
Speaking of which: my second interview for that job is Wednesday afternoon. Pray, fast, burn incense, kill chickens, do whatever your particular religious tradition demands if you think it might possibly influence my odds of getting this job for the positive.
Just kidding. I’ve learned that things generally work out for the best, in the best of all possible worlds. If I don’t get offered the job, then it means that right now, the best thing for me is to remain flexibly-scheduled and relying on God to bring me clients.
