It was odd.

People were walking over to shoo it away toward the river. My sister came out and told them the animal could lay there all day if it wanted to.

Get off my lawn!

It only stood up to go nibble on a rose bush. Most of the time it was curled in a ball on the ground just hanging out. Finally toward evening it wandered away. I hope it found it's mother.

They tend to stay put till Mom comes back, unless they're spooked.

Mom probably did wait till dusk. It made those, 'mom calls' when the dumb people were throwing rocks at it, but what is really odd is how they got separated in the first place. Mom heading for the hills and leaving her down by the river is so strange.

Must be one of those welfare mothers, out floozying, leaving her latchkey fawn to fend for itself.

OMG I just got so lucky.

I was supposed to do a training presentation tomorrow for a large group in enrollment services. Usually I throw these things together at the last minute anyway, but I have been completely unable to concentrate all week, and I was dreading this training. (This speaks to a larger problem of job dissatisfaction and waking up with a stomachache every morning, just thinking of coming to the office, for what reason I do not know...but I digress.)

I just got a call that they had something come up that is really crucial and that they would have to postpone the training. Maybe by the time it is rescheduled I'll be through menopause or this mid-life crisis or whatever the hell it is. Haahahaha!

She was so apologetic. Perhaps if she had seen my happy dance she would have felt better. :)

The bathtub drain in our old house has been leaking for years.
Today, we tore out the sub-flooring and chipped thru 3 inches of concrete to expose the old plumbing.
We snaked out the drain line and replaced the old brass fixtures with new.

Tonight, I took a hot shower and feel happy that the tub drains quickly, there are no leaks,
and now I'm clean and totally relaxed with a cup of good hot coffee.

Good working plumbing is a joy that's rarely surpassed, yet usually taken granted.

I'm back.

I have a job.
Yes, I'm now an employed Teaching Asisstant at the wonderful school I was volunteering at.
I can't start until I get my Enhanced CRB check back (booooo) and wouldn't you know, my stupid photo driving license was set to expire 31/10/10. So I've sent that off (25! Aargh!) and hope to get it back ASAP. They can't legally employ me until I am cleared, so I have to continue "Job Seeking" until then, as unless I can prove I am looking for work I am not entitles to any benefits. Fair enough, but it is a silly pretence after all.

It's only 20 hours a week, so sometime this side of Christmas I'm going to be looking for additional work to bump up my wages. The good news being that once I come off benefits, I can work when and where I want and earn money. When on benefits, I couldn't earn anything extra.

I'm going to be working with a named child who has social and communication difficulties. It's not 100% my ideal job (which would be as classroom support, and full-time) but I honestly expect to enjoy it, and it's wpnderful to be considered worthy of employment in a place which I respect, and who have seen me work.

Expect to hear a lot about the school and what I do - obviously without including any names or personal details. But at least I'll be able to tell you about school events without feeling like I'm a silly obsessed woman acting like she is a part of something she isn't :)
