    myrosiedog, I'm so happy your husband found a job. It's nice when something in common with an employer can land you a job. Maybe he'll even like it and can climb up the ladder there.

    As for applying for disability, I know you don't want to because maybe it would make you feel a certain way but I say maybe give it a try. It's there for a reason and although people abuse the system (my sister) there are others who need it (my mother). And sometimes you can still hold a part-time job. It doesn't hurt to check into it. If you find it's not for you then no harm done. Of course the payout differs from state to state and I don't know if your husband's income would count against the amount. Maybe you could find out if you could be on it for a limited time and if you are able to work in the future you could drop it.

He's not in management currently with this job. BUT his 82nd Airborne experience got him this job and he didn't want to put it on his resume. But his boss was also in the 82nd and that's what got him hired. I say, if it works, go for it.

    That coupled with my beloved Gators winning the national championship last night are good news indeed. 2 out of 3 is not bad. Especially on the job front. Now we need to tally up expenses, loans, etc. and make up a budget to pay everyone back, get our billls paid and what all.

    the 1 our of 3 is that my fibromyalgia and my interstitial cystitis are in full flareup at the moment. Went to the dr. this morning, to another this afternoon and a 3rd tomorrow. All specialists that are trying to treat me so I can function. I've been so bad the last few days I can barely get out of bed.
    I need to be working, but the dr. this morning told me that she doesn't know how I could be working in my condition and have I considered applying for disability. I really don't want to do that. But this is the Good news thread and we definetly have some good news finally to report.
    So happy that your hubby got that job.
    You Gators did a fine job last night. OSU was out coached, out played, and out classed. CONGRATULATIONS!
    I am really sorry that you are having flare ups. You really should look into diability...even on a temporary basis, the $$ might be helpful.

    So happy for you and your husband, Rosie - I hope this will reduce some of the stress you've been feeling, which should go a long way toward getting you feeling good again!

    Good news on the job myrosiedog! You keep taking care of yourself, and if the Dr. thinks you should apply for disability - why not? You've worked many years while others have schluffed off.

    Congratulations dear rosiedog! I'm sure that's a huge relief. You might look into the disability stuff and see what that would entail. Even if you only do it temporarily, you could then focus on your daughter's schooling.
    Count your blessings!

    Congratulations myrosiedog to your Hubby on the new job! That's great!
    Also yeah for your gators! I know how bad you wanted them to win.

    Sorry to hear you are not feeling well at all. Give the disability thing a try. If your doctor backs you up, the hard part is already over. Keep us posted.

    My good news is that we are experiencing a horrible Blizzard! And I'm not talking about Dairy Queen! It's -34C with windchill and the roads are disasterous. Black ice, blowing snow, whiteouts on the highways, collisions, abandoned cars, you name it. So my sweetie HAS to stay tomorrow and can't drive home because the highways are in poor conditions with poor visibility and people are advised not to drive is possible. WOO HOO! I don't know how we will manage:
    Live simply ~ Love generously~ Care deeply~ Speak kindly
