What is up with me?

Well, what has been going on with me? Not much but first let me update from yesterday. I still can not get my door open. Luckily we can use the back door however, that is a pain in the ass. We have to open are back gate which is also covered by a wood fence and it is hard to open. Along with the fact that the latch is pretty rusted and it is hard to get open on a normal day let alone when it is like 5 degrees outside. We can't just leave it open because then our dog will get out. We tried unscrewing the handle on our front door but we can't get it out since the latch is stuck in the locked position. I tried goog.le but it was not much help. We don't want to break it yet because we have to buy a new one first. That will have to wait until next week when I have some money. It is just really frustrating Just to get my mail I have to get dressed with boots and all. Never realized how important it was to have a front door. This is just weird. I have never heard of this happening to a door and it is not like it is old. The doors were brand new when we moved in like 6 years ago. UGH!

We have just been passing sickness and colds back and forth throughout the family and that is just so much fun. I have been really focusing on trying to find a job and there just is not much choices out there. I have been applying for some government jobs. I am not to hopeful but it would be nice. I have also been looking into working at a call center from home. A lot of places are going toward doing this now and that would be PERFECT! The only thing is I need to get a land line phone and headset which I do not have the money for right this moment. I think my DH is getting sick of me being home. How do I know this? I think it is because of my strong attention to detail and observation. My ability to read my hubby really well...or it could be because he has said "WOULD YOU PLEASE GO TO WORK YOU ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY" (LOL I am sure he meant it in the nicest possible way)We went from barely seeing each other because for the first 13 years we worked opposite schedules. He worked nights and I worked days. Then last year he changed to working early mornings so he goes to bed usually by 7 pm. Now we are together ALL the TIME!! (side note: he is reading over my shoulder right now and said this needs a few more exclamation points...I married a funny, funny man!) I feel bad because I know it must be tough for him to go to work every day knowing that I am sitting at home and it is not like I have kids to take care of or something really important to do. I enjoy not going to a job I despise but it does get pretty boring. I want to find a job I would enjoy or work from home. There just is not many choices out there.

Money has been VERY TIGHT. Next month is our last month of the agreement we made with our mortgage company so I am not sure what is going to happen because we surely can not afford a full payment. Every day I think about when am I going to be able to get into me RE? I am turning 36 in a week and a half (Super Bowl Sunday) and this has me depressed beyond words. Now I am over 35 and we all know what that means. I am hoping that since my body always seems to do the exact opposite of what it is suppose to do maybe now I will get pregnant and stay pregnant no problem. I almost said that with a straight can dream can't they?

Hubby got the results from his sleep study. They fitted him with the CPAP machine because he DEFINITELY has sleep apnea. They told him that he stops breathing 151 times an hour. UM WHAT!?! Is he ever breathing? That is more then twice a minute. He went back for them to fit him with the machine and he had to sleep there again so they could make sure it works. It did and we are waiting for the insurance to go through for the machine. Hopefully soon...I would like to go back to sleeping in my bed.

Thanks to Michele at I want to be a mommy I won one of her cute blankets that she makes. Thanks Michele, I can't wait to get it!! I will post a picture when I do. Anyway, that is all I have for now. I hope all of you are doing well!

Oh Michelle, i went through the staying at home thing for 4 years and it certainly got boring because I did not have a baby to take care of.

I have a baby now, but he has been out to nursery school since Jan. so now I am alone at home. If it was not for my blog and a book I am writing of the same name I would be going crazy.

I hope i will find a job soon because we sure do need the money.

I really hope things work out for you, as I totally understand what you are going through.

Okay, the tumbler mechanism in your door is goofed up! Call a Lowes or Home Depot and ask for someone in the lock department and pick their brain...can't hurt. Sorry Google was no help. Darn!

As for your mortgage, call your lender and be honest and see what you can work out. Lenders are being way more flexible, as many people are in a bind due to the economy.

And, I understand your want to find a job and the fact they are hard to come by right now. I'm sending up extra prayers that something pans out, just stay hopeful. I was unable to work for 2 years due to living in a foreign country and it made me crazy after a while, but I adjusted.

Now, on to your Birthday...Happy Birthday in advance! I remember turning 36 and I got pregnant at 36 for the first time, so it was a good year! Praying the same happens for you :) Besides 30 is the new 20!

Hugs and love and thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog.

Happy early birthday! I hate the fact that the older I get, the more of a pain in the ass birthdays are.

Good luck in your job search. I know you and your DH have been through so much lately and I truly wish 2010 will be the year your hardships end.

This is such a hard time to be unemployed. I have a friend back in Washington who lost his job recently and is searching and not finding much either. Also sucky about the house payment stuff. I hope something works out soon. Hugs to you.

Hey Michelle, wishing you lots of good luck as you search for a job! I hope you will be able to find something soon (and something you enjoy). Thinking of you! I know that the getting older thing gets harder and harder for those living with IF. ((HUGS))

P.S. I am usually never interested in the Super Bowl, but I sure hope the Saints win on your birthday! :)

Thanks for the life-update, Michelle. And best of luck on the job hunt. I know how that goes. :-)

Dang! If only I didn't let Bean play with my headset (he broke it, naturally) -- I would have sent it to you. I hope you get a break on the job front *very* soon.

And congrats on the blanket!!! Winning stuff is the best.
