I Start School Tomorrow

I finally get to start classes tomorrow. I am so nervous and excited. I keep thinking that I am going to mess up because it has been so long since I was in school, but i know once I get started I will be doing fine.

I have to go into Colorado Springs for my first class, and I have to be there by 8am. It is now 10 pm, and my adrenalin is going. I am going to have to get into a routine soon. Then I am hoping I can find a job before long which means I will have something else to work into that routine. I knew it was going to be a lot of work, and maybe me losing my job was meant to happen. This gives me a couple of weeks to get used to all of the big changes that being a single mom going to school full time will bring.

What this week of a single mommy has to come:

-Go to Reading classes Monday and Wednesday
-Doctors appointments Tuesday
-Determine when I will be taking my other 8 hours of online class time
-Then be a single mommy while doing it all

Oh and hopefully being able to find a job after my doctors appointments.

I was Terminated Today

Well if you read my last post you know that I fell and hurt myself Thursday. I received a note from the Doctor and was taken off of work for at least a week. I received a call from my boss today informing me that i was being let go. I was devastated.

I am thinking it had a lot to do with the fact that my year anniversary is next Thursday. If I could have made it to then I would have been able to take FMLA. I just think it is kind of funny, but I am not taking anything personally. It is a business and they do what they have to so that they can cover there ass.

I am still staying positive with everything. I will be able to spend more time with my son, go to school, and hopefully get my home income built up. Instead of thinking of all the bad things that may happen I am going to take it as a blessing. I will focus on other aspects of my life, and do things to make my life better. My son is my priority in life, and I have to make sure that he is always taken care of. I am putting my faith in God.

Single Mommy Plan:

  • Find some help to get through this
  • Spend time with my son
  • Get better soon so I can get a part time job
  • Focus on working from home
  • Focus on things that are important in my life
  • Take this bad news and turn it into a blessing!!!

Injured Single Mommy! Now What?

Wow things keep happening. Last week I missed work Monday because I had the Flu. Thursday night I fell on my kitchen floor, running from a skunk that was outside, and I am hurting so bad. My right arm is so bad I can't straighten it all the way. My back is hurting so bad that I can barely lift up my son without help. My right leg is bruised and hurting, and I was just getting over an injury with it.

I am scared. I went to the hospital on Friday, nothing broken, and I had to miss work all weekend. I have an appointment in the morning with my doctor, and I am really scared. The pain is not easing up, even with oxycodone.  I try to live day by day, but I have a lot of what if questions in my head.

What if I can't work for a few weeks, or more?
What am I going to do about an income if I have to miss more work?
How am I going to pay my bills?
How am I going to feed my son? I get a little food stamps, but not much.
How am I going to keep a roof over my families heads?

There is just so much going through my head right now, and I do not know what I am going to do. I have been at my job for a year on the 30th, but as of right now I do not qualify for FMLA. This means they can hire someone else in my place and not have a job for me. If this happens I really do not know what will happen.

I start school next Monday. The good part about that is I will only be going to class two days a week, the other classes are online. If I need surgery or anything on my arm I can get someone to help me with my typing. I had two surgeries on my right arm a few years ago, so I know how to type fairly well with just my left hand.

I know that I do not have a lot of readers on my blog, but if anyone reads this and has any ideas of what I can do please comment or message me. I am scared. I promise my son all the time that he will always be taken care of, and I feel like I may not be able to if I am hurt bad. I do not want to let my son down. He is my biggest concern in life. I will go without before he does!

My Life Dreams

I am a dreamer, but I am doing everything that I can to make those dreams come true. My son has brought my passion out, and I am pushing to give him a better life. I am tired of worrying about finances, struggling to pay bills, not having enough to buy something special for him, or just worrying about having gas to go to work. God has blessed me in so many ways, and he is giving me the things I need in life. I know I am on the path of achieving my dreams. I wrote a Squidoo lens on my life dreams and i will be sharing everything that I achieve on it.
