You Big Dummy....

Yeppers that is what I feel like. I finally took the initiative to take test one of two for entrance into a program to pursue my Masters in Special Education.

I have been studying for weeks, mostly math. All that studying felt useless. The math had things I did not study and very little of what I did study. I read on a feed that it was heavy in geometry. Well there were about 3 out of 60 questions on geometry.

I will have the official results in about two weeks but I am pretty sure I am going to have to retake it in a month or two. I know that sounds negative but it was a tough test. I can usually approximate the answers in math in multiple choice but today I had to refer to my old handy dandy..... EENY, MEENY , MINEY , MOE.... then pray that MOE was the answer.

On another note, I learned the lesson about going to a beauty school to get your haircut. They caught my eye with the $8 haircut sign. I have been needing a haircut and I only had $10. Well, at a beauty school, tell them half the amount of hair you want cut off because then they will double that amount and it will be exactly what you wanted. My hair had really grown this summer and was nappy.The girl was very sweet and loved my hair. She kept asking if I was sure I wanted two inches off. I kept telling her yes. Well she did initially cut 2 inches the first time. Then she discovered she had cut the layers uneven and had to fix it. Well there went more hair. At a beauty school, the teacher has to come around and approve the haircut then fix mistakes. She cut a little more to make it to her satisfaction. In the end.... I lost almost 4 inches of length . I should be mad but I am not. I actually like it . I will go back again but I just hope it doesnt take almost an hour and a half for a simple layer and trim. I give the girl credit, she was very articulate and did not let me leave with uneven hair. The one thing about hair.... it grows back and mine grows. These girls need practice and I dont mind being their guinea pig....... Did I tell you that this hour and a half cut was right after my 4 hour test in which I had to sit the whole time?  Yeah... I was tired of sitting.

Down, down, down

I am really down and need prayer. I get like this every August when the money has run out from not working. Every direction I try something it fails and at times I am beyond tears. I am tired of failing at what I try to do. I am tired of being broke.I am tired of no moral support. I am tired of rejection letters. I mean eventually things have to change for me.

Crazy Lady Update

The crazy lady's Alzheimer's has become extremely worse. We received a phone call today that she has been sending money to scammers. I don't know how much all together. I just know today was $500.If she sent this amount, they will deposit money into her account. I just know it took the police over an hour to piece together what has been going on and that it is more than one scam she has fallen for. Her husband had to call the police when he figured out what she has been up to. She told the police that it is not a scam and her memory and mental state is fine. She also told them that her husband just does not want her to have money so he was trying to stop all this. Alrighty then.... Her children are seeking legal advice to start procedures for deeming her incompetent... oh she will fight. One of her children wants my Mom to help but we have advised her not to because this is not her battle. Her battle is over and somewhat settled.

This is not a deep post on discovery.....

I have discovered two things today....

1-     Pillsbury Easy Frost in the can is awesome. I frosted 18 cupcakes and they looked pretty good and it was SO easy.

2-      When you get out of the habit of writing things with pen and paper, your handwriting penmanship goes out the window. I was writing thank you notes tonight for my VBS workers and I have to say , I was embarrassed by my handwriting. Time to start writing some things everyday to improve that handwriting again.

Please pray for me as I make some educational decisions real soon. Also pray for me to find full-time employment with better pay. I have not worked since June 14 and the money is gone... long gone.
