We are soooo close to the weekend and I am so ready!
Thursday is the day you try and finish all the many things you want to do that so on Friday, it starts feeling like that feeling when you get readying for a vacation. Or a few days off work!
So today I am going to be busier than usual due to my migraine Tuesday, which I worked through and my hangover migraine Wed. I also got a good bit done though not as much as I would like! It’s a catch up day plus finish my “chores”!
I got a good bit done on the house management part of my life this week and that made be happy. A bit more to go but thus far, happy client!
I was feeling all good about the resumes I had sent out.
I had to laugh though when 3 of the jobs I applied for turned out to be scams! The way they are worded seems legit, then they reply to you and all I can think is, “there must be a script somewhere because they all use certain catch phrases to tip you off that it is a scam!”
A few weeks ago I thought I had found a great personal assistant job. The hours were what I needed and I could also do my freelance work and most importantly, spend more time with the boy.
I agreed and we emailed back and forth. They said they would be sending me a check to start.
I somewhat forgot about it so when it did come in I was surprised. It was drawn on a bank I was familiar with so I took it to my local bank.
I had one of those “odd feelings” and told the teller to check and see if the check was legit. She asked me why and I blurted out, “well this could be a scam and I want to make sure it isn’t.”
She handed me over to another manager and then the branch manager, actually now a good friend, who came out to talk to me.
He ran the account and found that the “company” would have you deposit the funds into your account and then cancel the check.
They would encourage you to withdraw part of the funds as soon as possible. Then then wanted you to send the funds to their “art dealer” and the “art” would be sent to you. They also suggested I use the outside deposit for “my convenience!
So I am still searching for a possible part time day job, while writing, doing home management, volunteering and caring for the boy.
However today I will be focusing more on the boy and his schooling.
I get to confront the “better” school on what they can do for my kid. I want them to back up what I had been told when I did the first tour 4 months ago. Apparently a lot has changed.
I also get to do a little shopping because my main manager loves me and says I need a few items of clothing. She is the best manager ever! If you know me you will be laughing at that statement! It is true she is the best, but I am a bit biased because we are related! She is kind enough to let me help her out around her home and believes in me and my ability to write, be a caregiver and make a good living.
Do you know how blessed I am to have someone believe in me enough to give me a chance to make my dreams come true?!
Plus the perks are fabulous, I may be writing to you beachside next week, and she is pretty flexible with my hours.
She knows that I will only do the best work and I do get things taken care of even if it takes me a bit longer because I am doing my very best. Nothing else will do.
So today as I get my errands run and eventually write a few more articles, my mind will be drifting off to next weeks’ vacation with my fabulous family!
I’m so ready I wish we could leave Friday. No Saturday! I have chores and errands Friday too! Haha
My OCD won’t allow me to leave until all of my responsibilities are taken care of.
And the boy? He’s coming with me.
At the tender age of almost 5 he is starting to get the “is it Friday yet?!” thing.
I love it!
I am going into this day with hope and happiness!
My wish is for you to find a bit of hope and happiness on this fabulous Thursday!
Stay graceless my friends!
PS I had to post one of those “throwback Thursday” photos. See how my love for words goes wayyyy back?!
One thought on “Throwing back and moving forward on this fabulous Thursday!”
Wow, you truly are blessed. Wonderful and intelligent boy, getting to make your dreams of writing true and you are quite great at it; I truly think you’ll go far in that direction as much as you love to read and write and believe in the power of words. I can think of a couple of people who believe in you and your writing that would probably do anything possible or anything they could to make that dream come true for you. Not only are you blessed, quite a few people are blessed because of YOU also and the kind of person you are.
