The rest of the week lol
OK, so aside from the theater crap Im not having a bad week. Its been long- making up time from last week, but its been decent although tiring.
Work is going well- got 100s on both the assessments Ive taken so far. They were really easy- so far all open book (not that I needed it but still) and I think I am finally done with catching up on the stuff I missed. Now if we could just straighten out the HR stuff I might get paid someday. Apparently my recruiter messed something up or HR did or something, Im not really sure, but until its straightened out I dont get paid ( supposed to be paid next tuesday so we'll see) and I cant sign on to most of the stuff we need to do in class so Im a bit behind anyway just from that. Only me, I swear.

Got my huntress bodice from potted fox on Monday- Its beautiful!!!! I LOVE IT! Cant wait to have a chance to wear it :) Also on monday I unexpectedly got Anansi Boys (Neil Gaiman) and Thud! (Terry Pratchett) in the mail. So those two things really cheered me up after a very long weekend - books and leather - woohoo!

NaNoWriMo- why did I decide to do this again??? Oh right, so that maybe I could start writing again. That would be great if I could just come up with a damned plot! And of course time to do anything at all with it...
Ah well, going to keep trying maybe something will come to me. Not 50,000 words worth but at least starting writing again would be nice. Sucks being in this horrid block phase.

Anyway time to make some breakfast and lunch and get out the door. Need to leave shortly.

Theater Crap.
Quick general update before work ( may not end up being so quick! lol)

Sat went to rehearsals. Find out that although the costumes I had were fine, I was still short - a *lot*. This was a communication error on my end I guess. We have about 40 kids in the show. They are all double cast, and all the doubles are about the same size. And when we discussed this Jo also said that the kids would be using the same costumes. My misunderstanding was that they were going to be *sharing* costumes, not just each having one and not changing when they needed to be the character as opposed to ensemble ( I didnt realize everyone played ensemble roles as well). Argh. So now Jo is pissed at me because we open on sat, I didnt have all the costumes and to top it all off I cant make it to tech rehersals this week because of making up time from thurs and fri last week at work. Sigh. SO I go home Sat night and sleep for a few hours (since I had at that point been up for about 35 hours) and get up bright and early sunday to get through as many of the costumes as I need to.

So, after not sleeping again sunday night, and going to work on no sleep monday, I finish 10 of 17 costumes, finish the extra stuff and the fix- this fix that list. Now, Ive costumed this entire show out of my fabric room practically, and tried to do everything I can to rectify the problem since it was my fault. Shes still pissed, but we're working on it. Im ready to quit, and I honestly thought she was going to fire me on Sat. Grrr.. Not sure what I should do on the situation. I wont get paid back for the fabric Ive used, if I quit I wont get paid for the work I did (but Im not sure they are going to pay me at this point anyway) and there is no way I can come up with another 7 costumes by sat unless we borrow them from somewhere which I dont have time to do this week because of work..

I hate this sometimes. I knew there was a reason I tried to get out of doing this show in the first place. But Jo pushed and I buckled. Im too nice, and I cant let the kids down. So now Im in a quandry as to what to do. Sigh.

Current Mood: kinda lost

Lots of stuff :)
Ok, so this weekend was incredibly busy- had to work on Crucible costumes Sat ( only half done, but at least its half done), they need to be done by sat. Tomorrow will be easier to get stuff done since Ill be home by four and not six, and wont be rushing around from the second I get home for halloween.
Sunday cleaned the entire house. Mostly finished moving Jake out of the house (jpicon- apparicia moved with him, but hes still only a few blocks away so I can still see her. She is well taken care of and loved, and much happier with him than she would be with me). New windows came in today, so had to move *everything* yesterday. Many many hours cleaning, moving things and rearranging the house. It looks awesome right now though.

So, today the new windows were installed. YAY! Glad its done, and I dont have to worry about that anymore and it should help immensely with the heating bill this year ( or at least keep it even with last year given the increases in heating costs).

Started the new job today. Thankfully everything got straightened out. The bank seems like it will be a really really good place to work, we'll see how it all works out. Today was just the orientation thing, so we'll see how tomorrow goes. Weird for me to be in a regular M-F, 9-5 kinda thing, but its a good thing. Looking forward to tomorrow, but not that I have to be there at 7 ;)

Anyway, off to take care of a couple of things and then off to bed...

I love when a story pops into my head, but this one Im not sure if I can really write...

Im thinking of doing the NaNoWriMo thing, and have been thinking of a story to write for the past couple of days. So last night I kept having the same dream, and it would make a good story, but its a subject matter that Im not sure I can handle writing 50000 words about. I dont do horror stories well, and it might not exactly qualify as one, it has ghosts, haunted houses, and ghosts who kill in it.... And a family who has to deal with all of it... Its not like Amityville, maybe it wasnt a ghost who killed someone. Im still trying to figure it out. Trying to decide if I can deal with too many more sleepless nights.

Ok, rambling now. Need to get the kid ready for school, make costumes, and do a million other things today.

Note to self. Even 12 years later, the name change still causes problems. Hopefully this will get straightened out soon. Not like I did it to hide anything. *sigh*

Anyway off to get the van inspected, praying it passes. I cant afford repairs.

Ok, so here I am, all excited that Im supposed to be starting at Bank of America, waiting all week for them to call me to let me know when/where I can pick up my offer letter.

I've gone through 6 hours of interviews.
I've been fingerprinted.
I've been told I have the job.

And then the phone call yesterday morning. Houston, we have a problem.

Anne from BOA calls and tells me that the college clearing house they use has no record of me attending JWU. She called JW, who tells her I never recieved my degree. fucking wonderful! Without the confirmation that I recieved my degree I cant get the job. Its not that I need the degree to get the job, its that I stated I got one and without verification of this Im lying on my application and they cant have that.

Well, needless to say, this is news to me. I graduated. I walked down the aisle with everyone else. I never thought much of the fact that I didnt get my piece of paper- I always figured that got sent to my mother.

So I go down to JW to find out what the problem is. Apparently though I graduated, there is a hold on my degree because I still owe them 500 bucks. 11 *years* and they couldnt tell me this?? I even attended RIC after JW, so I know that I graduated, and got a copy of my transcripts sent over to RIC.

At this point, of course, Im panicing. I need this job. If I cant prove I went to jw and got my degree I dont get the job. I dont have the cash to give them. Hence the ARGH! yesterday

Anyway, thankfully I think we got it all straightened out. I pissed off a lot of people yesterday taking care of this, because even though I owe the school money, it should still have a record of me going and completeing the courses. Thankfully the very nice and patient people at Inactive Records at JW and Anne at BOA were willing to work with me and get this all straightened out. Time to send those folks thank you notes.

So, yeah, I had a job, and then almost didnt, and now I think I have a job again. Can anything in my life *ever* go correctly???

Finally! I have online access again! I can now check my email again - something Im sure my customers are thrilled about! lol

Anyway, for those who were wondering, I got the job at Bank of America doing the call center stuff! Woohoo! Have to pick up my offer letter this week, and then I start on Halloween :) :) Of course, now with the last weekend of the faire rained out, I need to figure out how to pay the bills until the 15th when I get the first paycheck...
Anyway just a quick note to let people know that Im still alive, Jay is almost all moved out and things just might be starting to look up around here!

Strange Request
I know this is going to sound odd, but one of the things that I love to do to unwind at night is put together puzzles...

So, do any of you maybe have some old puzzles laying around that youd like to get rid of? I would prefer 1000 piece or larger ( as that will take more than a day or two to put together- I like a challenge :) ) and can pay for shipping if youre not nearby me...

Thanks in advance!

So, tomorrow morning I have to go an orientation-interview kind of thing for Bank of America... They are looking for people for the call center. Would be a good job if I can get it- 10-12 an hour, close to home, regular 9-5 type hours, only a sat or sunday every other weekend ( I can live with that) and its permanent with all the benefits that go along with that.

So, the orientation thing is to take a test of some sort to let the computer decide if you would be acceptable or not for the customer service job, after which they will call you for an interview if you are found acceptable.

Promising, we'll see what happens.

Then tomorrow night I have to drive to Maine to finish Michelles wedding dress up for Sat's wedding ( thankfully only one minor alteration left, I believe).
Then its home Sat night, faire and Briannas birthday on Sunday. Faire again on Monday. After next weekend, its time to start really working on Crucible costumes..

*sigh* tired just thinking about it. lol

Ever have one of those days where you have so much to do that you just cant seem to get going on any of it? Not knowing where to start, you want to just crawl back into bed?

Yeah. Its one of those days.
7:26 am

Trying to find another job sucks!  I know how you feel, ldykatrina !!   I keep putting in applications all over the place and I never get called back..  I call them back to check on apps and get told either they are still looking over everything or that they found someone already. Not even an interview.
