It's like lemonade- Sweet, Tangy, and Refreshing!

Okay, now that I have the rant out of my system...

Life is good.

I made enough that I get a decent amount for unemployment, Medicaid pulled through, and I think everything's going to be okay. We'll have to see what life looks like on the other side of three months from now, but I think everything's going to be okay.

Sucks that it behooves me not to be married while I'm on Medicaid. I know a few of my relatives aren't happy about that... but I have to do what's best for the baby- and I can't get a job that pays more than unemployment without losing medicaid priveliges. And no job- no matter what anyone tells me- gives health care immediately.

So I'm between a rock and a hard place.

But it could be a helluvalot worse.

Birthday for me!

Tomorrow, anyway.

I used to be all grumpy when my birthday would fall on Mother's Day. I guess it's that selfish-"I-dun-wanna-share" mentality that kids can have about birthdays and holidays. But I'm pretty sure that things are probably going to change concerning that, too.

The Youtube contest was supposed to post semi-finalists yesterday, but they haven't put anything up yet. It's painful, it's frustrating, it's...

not like I'm going to win.

But I DO want to see who the semi-finalists are! Especially to find out if this guy's in them.

Because he deserves it.

But there are easily over 300 responses to the original vid, and of them probably about 124 followed the rules for entry. Including mine. That's a MASSIVE amount of vids to go through.

Saying Goodbye~

Last day of work today.

I clock in tonight, work twelve hours, and then come back to pick up my last paycheck on the seventh.

For all intents and purposes, we are closed. We haven't had hardly any calls on the day shift, night shift's a joke. The only reason they didn't transfer us to day shift like everyone else was because it wasn't worth the effort. (Not to mention the fact that Paul would've thrown a hissy fit. He likes to throw hissy fits... I think he's a little too in touch with his inner child sometimes.)

Seven of us have jobs lined up. One of them is a manager.

I think I'm going to sit on unemployment for a while and beg health insurance from Medicaid. Even if I can't stay with my current OB- if I have Medicaid, at least I CAN go to a doctor.

I'll be moving to North County pretty soon. They're clearing a space for me... for us. I don't see it happening until June, probably.

I'm going to miss working for Adam's Mark. But it's good to be off the yo-yo string. It'll be nice to be on level ground again- even if that means being unemployed.
