Well, it turns out insurance will NOT cover any of our stuff damaged by the water. Grrrr. They drove all the way out here to tell me that. Double grrrrr.
I was just glad I didn't cry in front of the guy. (sniffle)
So frustrating, but these are the days of our lives right now, and honestly, Dan and I keep saying how glad we are that we really like each other because it would totally stink to go through all of this with someone that we didn't really care for, love, or even like. That would just be terrible.
On a better note I am now taking a class. A class on medical terminology. I started tonight. It's really fun. That sounds weird I know. I read that is was fun in one of the reviews and thought the same thing. Then I started it and realized what they were talking about. It's six weeks long with twelve lessons so I am sure it will get harder as it goes on, but for now it's fun.
Also, I applied for a job. So crazy!!! But, it was good to go through the process and get my resume together again. It reminded me that I was once a professional. ha! It's been a while.
The job would be every other weekend at the emergency room in one of our local hospitals. I would be the person who comes to the room rolling my computer along and registering your information.
Of course, I am sure I am one of hundreds applying for this position, but I plan to keep my eye out for other similar positions. I actually would like to work at the hospital that is only ten minutes away rather than twenty (spoiled much?), but I will go where they will take me for a few hours and let me be home the rest of the week.
My medical terminology class will help me get a foot in the door. That's what I am hoping anyway.
On a side note, Elijah pulled a penny out of his pocket after school yesterday. He then went on to tell me the story about how a boy tried to flush it. It didn't go down so Elijah reached in and grabbed it. He assured me he washed his hands really good afterward, and that the penny had been in his pocket ever since.
Madelyn asked if he washed the penny. No. He then went and washed the penny.
He also told me that Mrs. Rinehart told him he could keep it. How she knows about it I have no idea. I did ask him to please not grab anymore things out of the toilet.
Like I said ... crazy days ... but it's all good.
