August 31, 1974

The year we were married...38 years ago.  Still weird to think we aren't together.  So, onward I go.

I was offered a new job yesterday working for a small natural health store.  I've already said yes to the job.  Now I just have to find a way to let my "other" boss know that I'm leaving.  I feel bad.  I like him.  Just not crazy about financial services.  I want to put my new education to use and this fits me perfectly.

And, then....there's mom.  She's still with me.  Quite the little drama queen. 

I've been parking at the front of the house when I get home from work. This allows me to come in the front door without her noticing that I'm home.  Then, I can take a little breather before starting my second, all-time job with her.  Yesterday she asked Jenny (my daughter-in-law) who was in the house because my car wasn't there.  Jenny told her I was home, but my car was being used by my son.  She told Jenny that I park out front so she won't know when I'm home.  She's on to me.

Today she told Catie (her care worker) that I have people take her out to lunch so we can party here without her.  Ok...a little over the top, but may be worth the consideration.
