Well each day brings a new adventure, some pleasant some not so pleasant. I see that it has been a few weeks since I wrote a blog. It hasn't been because everything has been good or bad. It has just been..... I took a part-time gig writing articles for an online newspaper thinking that I was making at least a dollar an article. Only to find out that I am actually making a half a cent each time someone views the articles. I may have cleared a dollar over the past month. I don't know if I am disappointed or not. I was just pleased to find out that people were actually reading my articles. I haven't been writing the four articles a week over the past two weeks but I have been writing at least two each week just for the sake of writing.
Being a parent of a teenager is difficult. Sad part my daughter is just entering her teeenage years. Will we get through these years without killing each other? I think so but it is going to be a difficult journey because she is actually younger than everyone in her grade which makes her a little less mature in some areas that they deal with on a regular basis. She has book sense and is lacking a little in the common/ street sense area. We recently found out that she had a boyfriend. Yes, we were shocked. Shocked because all of her friends (with the exception of 1) had dated this little boy. My daughter has seen him kissing all over girls, he is a juvenile delinquent, no stable parents, etc..... All of the wrong choices for boyfriend material. I guess you like who you like......
Well my husband is still laid off, no success in finding a job (thus far). We are barely skating by. Bills get paid but that's it. There is no extra. Found out today that I may no longer have a job because we have lost a few clients and he can't afford to pay me. I understand but what are we going to do financially. God always makes a way!!!!
I did find out that I can take the course I need to take in order to get my CAC and the HOPE grant will cover the expenses. I just have to get the application filled out, HOPE application completed, transcripts and immunization records sent to the college by May 1st. I am procrastinating but I intend to get it completed by the time line.
My mentor finally sent back my worksheet and I may be able to begin writing my chapters. Well we will see what happens next. Take each day as it comes. In the words of Jesse Jackson, Keep hope alive!!!!!!!
