Things and Stuff

I've been a lousy blogger lately- sometimes life just gets in the way. This whole time change business has my internal workings all in a funk, and exhaustion has been killing me all week. It's amazing what a one hour shift can do.

On the bright side, I had an amazing meeting with a talented group of Maine crafters this past weekend. It was nice to chat with other crafty adults, and exchange adoration over our various items. Go crafts!

Even better however, was that this weekend I received a letter letting us know that our family is now covered by state health insurance, after applying for the second time. We're finally broke enough to qualify. Way to be poor! Money aside, at least now we can afford to get sick, which is great considering what a total klutz my K is.

And speaking of money, GH's amazing grandmother sent us a check, as she knows we're struggling right now. It's a real kick in the crotch to my pride, but a gift we can't turn down at the moment. After all, we have tons of fun things we need to buy, like socks for G, whose current socks are more hole than material. And who knows, maybe, if I'm real lucky, socks for me as well. Sheer luxury.

On a down note, I have a bad feeling I'm not going to be accepted into graduate school. I placed a call to the admissions office last week to ask when decision letters would be sent out. She asked my name, and after I gave it to her there was a pause- and then she let me know letters would be going out at the end of the month. I think if I had gotten in, she would have told me. Why else would she have asked for my name? Looks like I may be getting the fabulous reject form letter. I'm trying to prepare myself for the blow, the whole time praying out of the other side of my mouth that it isn't actually going to happen. All I can do is continue to wait, and deal with it when it comes, either way. Here's to hope!

I am glad you had a good meeting! YAY on a nice gift when you need it and health insurance :).

I am sorry about the potential bad news!!

But it sounds like there are other opportunities with things you love!

Noooo...don't think that yet. For all you know they don't give the info out at all until the letters are sent and she asked your name simply to make sure they had the paperwork that showed you applied for it. Be positive!!

2nd possibility... they have many different acceptance cycles going on, the lady isn't allowed to give out info, and was merely asking for your name to tell you when you would find out based on your degree plans.

I so totally understand your money woes.

We are overdrawn, have hardly any food, and over four weeks until hubby's next paycheck. Thankfully we have money dribbling in from here and there.

Does your grandmother want to send me a check ;) ?

When we get things sorted out, I'm heading back to your etsy shop! I'm running low on you lip balm!
