Praise God! That must be a relief for your DH!

My first thought was something from home, too. I was a virtual assistant and that was extremely flexible. You could even do some stuff while waiting at chemo. The hard part is finding clients. But, I know there are websites where you can "bid" on jobs. I'll see if I can find the links if you are interested.

I am hoping to have a job that is more social and allows me to get out of the house. New Hampshire winters are very confining as it is. Add the hospital schedule to that and it can be pretty depression-inducing. It isn’t just about money...it’s also about my sanity.

I think the library job will likely be flexible enough for me. I am compiling a list of friends who are willing to spend a couple of hours with dh or take him to chemo if necessary, and we ae hoping to get the visiting nurse services in place. I think having those things will allow me to work 10-12 hours a week without neglecting dh.

It’s a small library (one librarian, one assistant, two aides) so I am betting in an emergency (hopefully there are none...but it’s certainly possible) they would be able to manage a few hours without me. They do have some volunteers and subs, as well.

I have had two or three bread makers in my life time, but none in the last 10 years. They have *never* worked, really. I always followed directions, and typically tried the basic starter loaf (white)...but they didn't form like they should have...

I'd really like to start making homemade bread again. When I do it from scratch, without the machine, it works well...but I'd love a short cut, honestly. I'd love to hear if you have a breadmaker that has earned it's permanent place (or worthy of one) on the counter top?

For a SMALL family with a Mom who is constantly tired or realizing (Oh, Gosh, I'm the one responsible for dinner)...would an Instant Pot or Crock Pot be best?

Good morning! Jose' had a much, much better day yesterday. He more than doubled the amount of food he was able to swallow. I think the chemo is working! Very Happy We are praising God!

Some bad news from dd. There was a house fire in her town, and it turned out to be where her boyfriend's son lives with his ex. The stepdad was badly burned and medflighted to Boston. Mom and 3 kids are OK, but homeless. Sad BF's son has autism...this must have been pretty traumatic for him. So please pray for this family.

Dh needs to go to the hospital for iv fluids today, so that will consume most of the morning. I need to go to the grocery store, and to run a few more errands. I also need to write my resume so I can apply for a part time library job, and to work on some homework for my two classes.

What's happening in your world?

Have a great day! SOAP for all of you.

Good Morning Lovelies,

Excellent news on Jose' being able to eat more, Lisa! I'm sure you know, but just in case - there are some excellent resume examples online these days. I will be praying for your dd's boyfriend's family - so sad.

I need to get dd up and moving - PT first thing this morning.

School for her after PT - she is loving Biology now since she is working on the human body .... right up her alley of interest!

I picked up a work shift so will need to get dinner ready to put in the oven and then we will eat as a family once I get home.

Have a lovely day, all.

I'm here. Sorry I have been so MIA! We have been fighting sickness for a week now. It is just passing from one person to another. Right now I have laryngitis and some sinus yuck going on. But, I think that is more about our crazy weather than a virus.

Lisa, I am so glad you DH seems to be feeling better! I will pray for your DD's boyfriend's son and family. How scary!

Today, I have a bunch of errands to run. We have a ton of stores we need to go to to get supplies for making Halloween costumes and a few other things. The rest of the day is just normal school and housework stuff.

We arrived home yesterday...we pushed ourselves to the limit, thinking we'd be "ahead" by driving straight in...I couldn't even tell you how many hours we were on the road plus stops...long. Jonah did *wonderful* and all without the aid of technology (I had downloaded some stuff on my phone for "emergencies" and night time driving, but he really used less than 10 minutes the entire trip). Franklin and I are still recovering. Two weeks/ish in beds that are not our own, sleeping with Jonah much of that time, and the car ride...our bodies are not the 20-somethings that used to make road trips so fun.

Thanks, and I want to point out that of all the promises made to those of us devoted to right-to-life, Trump is the first one to actually sign an order moving in that direction. He signed an executive order allowing the abortafacient birth control exemption for faith-based companies, and that's nothing for us to overlook.


I can appreciate this, too.


Peace
