Hello Blog World

Hello Blog World Friends,

I'm still hanging in there. Thank you for your responses and support. I've finally got the packet in for the modification. There are a few more things I need to get to them. They are small things that make a big difference.

I think I will be able to pay the mortgage this month. It just kills me not to pay any bill, let alone the mortgage! The bills are all up to date and current. I did manage to get my Chase Mastercard interest rate dropped from 19.99% to 6.0%. That was a major task, but it's done.

I've been getting calls for the daycare, but for some reason, the parents don't follow through with thier appointments. I have lowered my rates, but I can't afford to lower them anymore. I can only say that those were not the children for me for whatever reason. I must remain patient and hopeful.

Yes, I have been looking at other employment options. Not many available. What little is available would be at a much lower pay rate. When you consider travel costs, wardrobe, etc., a lower pay rate is not an option. I'm still looking at other employment possibilities.

My grandson is doing very well. He is trying to walk now, taking as many as 5 or 6 steps. He has gotten quite long and tall. His father has been more active in his life. Says he is trying to get himself together. Has a job and is renting a room with a roommate.

I have become so spoiled from the help I've been getting from my sons in taking care of my grandson. Since school has been out, they have been awesome in helping out around the house and helping with the baby. I paid my youngest son $25 week to look after the baby during day care hours. This has made a tremendous difference in my ability to focus and get things done. I'm even more rested at the end of the day. It has really woked out well.

Keep the prayers and the happy thoughts coming...:)
