Cari, that's so awesome, YAY!!!!! I'm so happy for you! Um...what will you be doing, again?
Who's getting up for the eclipse? I hope to see at least something. Live. Just so I can say I saw it.
The job is as a mobile carer with a large disability services organization :) I've worked for them before actually, but had to leave when DH got relocated for work years ago. I'll be on the night shift as the person that clients/families/care workers call if they need assistance or if someone isn't coming for a shift I'll either find a fill in or take the shift over myself etc.
Yes, we saw the eclipse :D It was complete before the moon rose completely here though, so there was a slivver at the bottom of the moon that was coming out of the shadow already. But the kids still thought it was very cool... we stayed out there for ages getting bitten by midgies so they could watch :P

wow great news cari!
maia- i got tired just listening to that.
i dont know what is going on with me. i have been nauseas/puking for 2 weeks now and all preg tests come back neg. i dont know what else could be causing it but now i got this wierd pain in my side i have never had before. so i going to the doc again. i hope i dont have appendicitis or something.
DH wanted to spend the holidays at home but we got suckered into going to his family's xmas eve. a 3 hour drive one way. then to my dad's on xmas (only 15 min drive though) and then my mom's the day after xmas. to top it all off this year is the year dsd'd mom gets her the whole weekend. DH is bummed. he wanted just one day with nowhere to go. we would have celebrated today but he had to work. this is the first year he was open to it. maybe next year. i would have kept the kids home from school on purpose and everything.
tried to see the eclipse. was too cloudy. it snowed and now school is delayed.
Ty! I'm excited to go back to work :) I'd be having my appendix checked, even though 2weeks is a bit long for it to act up without getting very severe, it IS possible. Hope you manage to get a bit of relief to enjoy the day!

I'm doubtful that it's gall bladder as the pain from that tends to be 'referred', so you feel it somewhere other than where the gall bladder is. But there's a good site for info to help you sort it out. *typical* gall bladder pain tends to be up under your rib cage in a 'band' around your very upper abdomen, but that can vary a bit, that's just it's 'favourite' spot to show up apparently. I've dealt with that pain off & on for years so I hope that's NOT what it is.. it sucks :( If it's gall bladder the symptoms usually flare up after you eat anything fatty... even avocado, which sets mine off like a time bomb :S So maybe take note of what you eat that seems to make it worse today?

I talked to DH, who has a light day at work today, and we're putting off one of the xmas presents we planned for the boys until Lucas' birthday next month. I feel like I've over done it AGAIN lol... Not sure how, as $ has been tight, but I've spent more money than I thought i had to spend!?!?! Granted I did do lay away for a bunch of stuff, and I had a couple of smaller shopping trips .. but it sure did add up. So we'll save that one for next month, otherwise we'd have no cool birthday present!
Speaking of presents... the book my MIL has wrapped for me is SCREAMING my name from the closet *SIGH* lol... (it's one that was released last month and I planned to get... but she told me not to buy it, so I knew she got it for xmas for me lol EVIL CRUEL WOMAN! lol)
Must hit the post office, the bank, and I think I'll hit the new massage clinic/shop at the mall and get DH a gift certificate for a serious shoulder massage :) He'd enjoy that for sure. Might do the big grocery shop tonight too... the closer it gets to the 25th, the less I want to go near the shops lol.
