Retaking Me

It's time again to reassess. I am, once again, what I consider semi-employed. I'm subbing. If/When they call, I have a job...for a day...or half of one. I never know what kind of group I'll get, what the classroom will look like, what kind of community the teacher has built before I get there.
I have little to no control there.
Hubby still works 3 hours drive away so he lives there during the week and comes up MOST weekends. Outside of that I'm single-momming it with the 9 ...

I have little to no control there.
Hubby still works 3 hours drive away so he lives there during the week and comes up MOST weekends. Outside of that I'm single-momming it with the 9 year old and learning what I can and cannot do without him present and learning how much long-distance I can handle in my relationship.
He cannot retire until at least 2016.
Again, little I can control in that situation.
As such, I need to start taking control where I DO have it. That means stepping up and making myself use the days I don't have a job to move forward on my health, my artwork, and my home.
Consistency is still hard and I don't yet know how Spark is going to fit into this but it'll be there.

I hear you. I went through that every deployment when mine were younger. My fear is that I am going to find a job I really like and the Army is going to relocate us again, so I may not be trying as hard as I could. Good luck on your interview next week!

I keep trying to move along on the job front, this hurry up and wait is driving me nuts though! I have until the end of the month to find a job in the field I like/trained for before I am going to have to be less picky. It wont be much fun trying to fit interviews in around a part time job at a low wage place...

I'm working it as much as I can, scale has gone in the wrong direction for too long and with no school/job right now I don't have any excuses!

Hi Franc! Just checking in. I need to get back on track and that always makes me think of the Geckos!
