Call Me!


Still waiting on the call that could potentially change our situation. I was up early ( and as always hopeful ) The phone began ringing early. Every time it rang, my heart leaped out of my chest.

The first call was from Shannon, the man who my husband is ‘partnered’ with, with specifics about Saturday’s gun show. The second call concerned my husband’s Medicaid application. The third was from a bill collector. And the forth was from TJ asking ( ME, of all people) advice about what (he) should do with the rest of his life. Specifically on whether he should stay in Coral Springs or move to Florida City where he has a job waiting, and to be closer to his step daughter who is imprisoned there.

Still no call from my potential employer. 😦

SO, I broke one of my rules and called them back. And spoke to the boss, I think. I had a brief encounter with him yesterday and recognized his voice although there was something softer to it this evening.

More importantly, he seemed receptive to my call ( he even called me Sweetie ) which is not always the case, however I know nothing more, other than the man I interviewed with won’t be back in the office until 9 am tomorrow morning.

There’s still hope ( if only a glimmer ) but more waiting. Waiting is all I seem to do these days.

Waiting… :/


The interview went well is all I can say and I was told I’d hear from them later today or tomorrow. Waiting is hard. Yes I do believe I have a few control issues, although less than I used to. IF the last two years has taught me anything is that I ( or should I say ‘we”) really have very little control in the overall scheme. HARD HARD lesson for me. One I still struggle with on a daily basis.

Anyway, it is a production job and pay is based on production. But with a guarantee of minimum wage but I can make as much as $15 a hour with 15 appointments a week. I will work 7 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week. Oh and weekly pay. So IF I started Friday, I’d get paid for at least three days next Friday.

I wish I had more definitive news to share with y’all.

With that said, Job or no job, your donations are still very much needed and appreciated.

I guess I am trying to stress that IF I get the job, the needs will shift again to gas money ( or running money and such until I get a paycheck or two under my belt. .

ALSO , please continue to send positive vibes this way.

Gosh, I need this job so much.

Thank you all so VERY VERY much. We are so VERY grateful for all the friendship and support sent our way.

And for a few of you, thank you so VERY MUCH for having so much faith in me! It means more than you could ever imagine.

Everything is Going to be Alright. :)


Some days are better than others no doubt but this evening I hold tight to this truth. I heard from TJ, who seemed very lucid and taking care of business. At least he is going through the motions which is cathartic in itself.

With my stepson gone back north , TJ is back in Broward and staying with family friends. They are planning a candlelight memorial for Sarra on Friday evening. I’d like to be there. Whether I go or not is up in the air.

Here on the homefront, all is quiet. Again, I can’t help but appreciate the respite. Or the lessons God is teaching me in this process.

I truly believe, everything is going to be alright. Maybe not today, but eventually!
