Thursday Thirteen #7

Thirteen Random Things I am Thinking About Today

1. I have an interview tomorrow for a full time job at the hospital and I am stressing about what to wear to it. I have a gift card to JCPenney's I am wondering if I should use, but then I think it may come in handy if I get the job for actual new work clothes instead.

2. I am also already crunching numbers on what I will be paid there verses what I will pay out to daycare! Oy Vay! That and all the other new added expenses - gas, tolls, lunches, etc

3. I need to buy a child cover for the tower on my desktop so Matthew stops playing with the power button which he is doing right now driving me mad!

4. My wireless keyboard is having some problems with the letter "E" I am noticing as I type this and have to constantly go back and correct it. So excuse any typos please!

5. School fundraisers are out and about and between my children and only two of my neices so far I have spent $100 on this stuff already! I will have two new magazine subscriptions, a Christmas present for Dad, a cookbook, and a container of Cookie dough!

6. Adam reorganized our desk area to set up his new computer for a side home business he is starting. It is a mess that he apparently thought some nice lady would come in and clean up for him!

7. I need to take some pictures of some gently used items to place on Craigslist to sell. I am hoping I can make some money to take advantage of a FL resident rate night at Disney for our family in the next few weeks as a surprise for everyone. :)

8. Adam took down the "Fall Decorations" box for me and now I just need to drag it in from the garage and decorate the house. Maybe I will have it done today

9. The kids are off from school today and tomorrow so I need to find things to do with them to keep them occupied and ME sane. Maybe a craft project and the park.

10. PARP program started at school - the kids love this each year. It is called Parents As Reading Partners and they get to track how many books we read together in a week. A play is put on where the outcome is determined by how many books the kids read and if TV, Video games, etc will win over reading time with Mom and Dad.

11. I bought the kids the book "Flat Stanley" and we are going to make our own Flat Stanley and send him along with a throw away camera to some relatives around the country so the kids can see how the project works. I am very excited to do this with them and I know they will get a kick out of it!

12. Halloween is coming and my boys are already trying to think about costumes. Alex has asked to be a ballerina, a princess, or a pokemon. Yes, I know he is a boy but he seems to have a flare for girl stuff. I am working on locating a Pokemon costume obviously. I voted for a family themed year (like being the Wizard of Oz characters or something) but I was shot down. Maybe next year

13. I have tons of cleaning to do today since Mom will be coming tomorrow to watch the boys while I go to my interview and Lord knows I can not have my mother in my house when it is not spotless enough to eat off the floors.

I would wait and use the giftcard for new work clothes!

sending positive vibes and prayers for the interview!!!! Happy TT!
My grandson just entered daycare and my daughter pays more for his care (at one year of age) than she does for rent in a medium sized city. It's outrageous. Good luck with your interview!
Looks like you have a lot on your plate! Hope everything turns out well for you.
I hope the interview goes well for you! And, hopefully you'll get the job and all the finances will work out with the cost of day care.

It sounds like you have a lot on your mind and lots to take care of! I hope the Disney trip works out for you. (btw- we stayed at the New Orleans French Qurater)
it is amazing how many things us moms can think about all at the same time, huh!
Good luck with the interview:) Happy TT.
Good luck with your interview! As far as the rest of your list, it's like we have the same life!!!
