Its been touch and go for about a year. He was released from his previous employer after a run of 5 yrs with the company. On and off unemployment benefits for the last year very touch and go with the mortgage. He has taken one day jobs with his "Labor Union" as offered and qualified. We lost our "medical insurance" in Feb 2011, due to lack of hours needed. He picked up"temp" a job in May 2011 which looked promising and gave us the ability to return our kids to our insurance plan. In July of 2011 we got a call from his previous employer...begging him to return to his previous position...so as his job was "temp" we figured GREAT!! He put in his 1 week notice(which is required thru the labor union) he came home after working till Friday , excited about returning to previous employer. That day we ran and did errands and he came home and took a nap. At 6pm the phone rings, its his previous employer, He calls to say "OOhh I cant rehire you cause if I do some employees will quit!! Afraid he will get more work than them since he does have more experience and has always been more reliable and able to fix equiptment other people felt him to be a threat. My question is.... Seriously..Hes the boss and he is letting the other employees decide who is and isnt going to be hired. Not a very Good boss in my opinion...very upset about this situation...
GOOD NEWS IS..
he may have a new job come Monday or at the latest the following week..He did a temp job again and the "temp"boss was impressed with his work..SOOO fingers crossed he gets this job!!

I purchased a Groupon for this site and I paid $20 for the online certificate to spend a total of $40 and this was by far a great purchase. So many items to choose from from shirts to outfits to totes(as shown) the possibilities are endless on what you can spend the certificate on. The shipping is not included and starts at $5.95. The tote I had made is the chocolate and bubblegum design, got it today super cute and very happy with my purchase. If interested here is the link to their site:Em Tanner Designs

Well school is about one month away and so much to tackle before that time. Ive accomplished the "Haircuts" for both of my boys thank you to "Great clips" and some good clippers. My youngest boy will start Pre-K, he is ready , backpack, lunch box and all. My older son will be a Sophomore in H.S and he, by choice, will return with his previous years backpack. My 15 yr old will become a coach's helper for football this year, to allow him to participate in school sports he maintains a 3.2 GPA and is severely handicapped (mentally) and Thanks to a great teacher and coach he will be an assistant to his teacher. Ive been lucky to have a good ability to communicate with his teacher and express to him of my desire to have Jordan participate in a school sport. Jordan will be returning to bowling with Special Olympics on August 2nd and that should have no impact on his school sport. We have taken time off from Horseback riding for the time being with as hot out as it is. We are involved with the kids and sports and are already looking into the participation of my daughter...Tap looks promising :)

I had a wonderful opportunity to provide my teen moms and babies as well as my day care moms and babies with the O Organics Puffs which are great they dissolve in the mouth making it a very safe beginning food for new babies. These are Organic whole grain no artificial additives for children beginning and those to self feed. I know when my baby was younger she enjoyed the "puffs" they had a nice texture and good taste and easy to dissolve to prevent any unfortunate choking. These come in many varieties for flavor easy to find a flavor your child would like. These were placed on a table, at the door, made it easy for everyone to grab a bottle before they had a seat. Once everyone was seated we had a discussion on feeding babies and when they were ready for the next step, I understand some moms and the concern over choking(I had that same fear). Everyone tried a piece or two first before the introduction to the babies so they could see the flavor and the texture to put some concern minds at ease.
The Puffs came in a box with a bag of popcorn as well as some great money saving coupons. The popcorn made a nice snack , though I did have to get more before my meeting.
Thank you Moms Meet and O Organics which provided all my goodies to me.
