Keeping my head above water

Whew... what a week.

Today we are getting the Passport ordered... to the tune of $177. That is the normal $60 fee plus the $25 additional fee, then the $60 expedited fee and then $16.95 x 2 for overnighting it to them and then back to me. So let's hope we get it in 5 weeks. They say it takes 2 weeks if you do it this way, let's hope! We have the plane tickets, the hotel room, and she is registered for her classes. It's real now!

I have a THIRD interview on Monday! Whew, this is the last interview. They will make a decision next week for sure, they said. This interview will be with other managers in the dept. So far all the well wishes and prayers have paid off :-)

On a very sad note, a boy in my oldest son's class committed suicide on Monday over a break up with a girlfriend. Very, very sad. Since graduation is about 4 weeks away. Please keep the family and the girlfriend in your prayers. I just can't imagine what they must be going through.

Oh and yesterday it was 77 here!!!!!!!!!! Uh, but today it is in the 40's and rainy... but we had an almost 80 day in April... it was great! I had some windows open and we were outside with no coats and capris it was wonderful. Rejuvenating!

I bet her passport will be there on time. But it is still stressful to wait for such an important part of the trip.

Sorry about that boy! Being a teenager is really hard!! ((hugs))

We had a really warm day on MOnday and then the next day it was 30 degees cooler. :(

Oh how I hope it is there on time! What an amazing opportunity for her!! It sounds like you have had a rollercoaster lately, but hopefully things are looking a little better around there. You seem to have things going good in your mind and I think if you are ok there then that will help you, the kids and the family altogether. I give you so much credit. You are so strong.

Oh, that poor family. My heart goes out to them. I'm definitely crossing my fingers on the passport AND the interview. I hope you're doing o.k. with the separation.

Wow! I feel like I've missed so much! You're going to London, holy cow! You do get to go with her, right? I can't believe she won that trip, how amazing is that? And...your husband ... well, whatever, stupid men. Sorry (((Hugs))) Good luck on the third job interview, I'll be thinking about you. You must be about crazy by now, but you seem to be holding it all together. Take care!
