It's ALMOST criminal...

Today I was fingerprinted for the first time 
in my life.

I guess that's a good sign, right?

I've kept out of the prison systems up until now.

And actually I hope to STILL be avoiding
any brushes with the law for the foreseeable future.

No promises, but I will try to NOT disappoint 
my fans, followers and family.

That's A LOT of 'F's'.

Why in the world were you fingerprinted then?
You ask.

Well, I officially got a job last week.

In some ways, it's almost criminal how easily
it fell into my lap.

Quite literally.

A friend told me.

I called them.

They called me.

I had an interview.

I was offered a job.

No seriously, it went like that.

Now, in the grand scheme of things, it's not
my "perfect job".

The pay stinks and there are NO benefits.
Things like insurance and health care and all 
that jazz.
(Something I need to get sooner or later, 
mostly sooner)

BUT, its a start.

And as my new boss, Deb told me, "It's easier
to find another job when you ALREADY have a job!"
(That's her philosophy anyway.  She's pretty 
fabulous, she knows our situation and I like
her already)

On the plus side:

It's 19 hours a week.

It's close to home.

It's during the school day when the kids
are gone, leaving me time to do my OWN
schooling online and at night this first year.

It's flexible, so I can work around Doctor appointments
and Kyle's schedule, which is VERY important to me
right now.

So there you have it.

My official announcement.

WORK & School.

(And still with the cancer stuff).

If all of these things don't push me over the edge
of insanity, I may just make it, for now.

Oh ya, and WHAT am I doing? 
(you ask)

I am the "Transitional Specialist" up at Skyline 
High School (Sorry Olympus High peeps, 
I know I'm going into enemy territory--
maybe I can spy on the football
team or something for you?!)

I will be working with Special Ed kids and helping
them learn how to "transition from High School"
to "the Real World".

What will I do?  

I'm not sure yet.

Training starts next week.

I'll keep you posted.

Almost criminal.

That's what I have for today.
