Wow alot has been happening since I last updated in march. I will update the good news first.
Okay well my daughter Lorelia is crawling now which means I can put her on the floor more than I could when she wasn't. She still sleeps with me but working on her to get to sleep in her own bed is a battle. She will scream at the top of her lungs and it doesn't matter if I go in and pat her on the back and comfort her. She will kick the crib so hard it shakes. Then since she really gets worked up because even if I let her know I am here and I love her she won't calm herself down (till I pick her up it's been like this since I brought her home from the hospital) she will make herself throw up so I have to pick her up. Ya I know. Also my child is hudine. I can't put her in the vibrating bouncy chair I bought for her anymore. She climbed right out of the straps and decided to try and climb over the top of the chair and fell. She was all right and I called the nurse's line but Lorelia's okay. So I can't use that chair anymore. If I put her to sleep in her carseat and she is wailing even if I have the straps connected without being buckled Lorelia can climb out of that so it has to be buckled or she will wriggle out of the belts. Ya I know my kid is houdini. LOL. She is very bright she is pulling herself up onto furniture so she can stand. Also she can pop lock and drop it when she's dancing. She's already a little hip hop girl lol. She also is getting in her two front teeth and eating solid foods.
I have finally gotten a job! I am so excited. I will be working for Sitel. I am happy I just trippled Lorelia's and mine income. I have been on TANF for six months and an intern at the Employment Center (how ironic huh) and now I will be making fifteen hundred a month. I can still recieve sooner care for health for three months. I can still recieve food stamps. I can also still recieve sooner care & daycare assistance for Lorelia.
I have enjoyed working at the Employment Center. They have been really good to me. Jan (my boss) has driven me to DHS so I don't have to bus over there to turn in my time sheets. Jill and Maria have been picking Lorelia and me up in the morning so I do not have to walk her two miles to daycare anymore at six in the morning. Angela moved up her lunch hour so she could give me a ride home. I don't have to be here right now since I won't be recieving TANF but I still get the participation money and because I have been saving that I will get my ticket for my tailight paid off. And by my first paycheck from Sitel I might just have a car.
So that is the good news. The bad news is my Thyroid is dangerously low which is why I look like I am about to pass out all the time. Then my iron defficiancy is absolutely terrible. I am on drugs for both of those things. Wee. And at some point I have to get checked out for the HPV cancer. I haven't had time to I need to because i need to be healthy and around for my daughter but yeah! I also have four root canals that need to be taken care of but DHS may pay for that. They are still pending on it because it is going to cost them 7000 dollars and they usually only give 750. But they might just do it cause of the dental note i got regarding my note and the health problems the root canals can cause me (blood desease, diabetes, oh and more heart surgery). What can I say I'm a mess. LOL. I have been doing doctor's visits like crazy but ya.
So life is pretty good minus a few complications. And I start my new job on Monday!
