Surprise and Awe

God, Noreen you really touched me. I mean I am really moved by what you wrote. I feel so much joy and love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Great gift for today. Who knew that folks in Austrailia were reading this.

We have been having thunderstorms since last night. I am supposed to go help a friend who has just finished surgery; but she hasn't called yet. I am actually kind of happy for the weather change because it makes it easier to take walks (when there is no rain) and I get to wear sweaters and my new cranberry colored cape. I swear it was just Friday when we had 95 degree weather. Now it is winter.

My Mom is thrilled about my new diagnosis. She congratulated me. Yes Mom I may have graduated. But to be honest this doesn't change much. I will get to dump some pills; but I haven't quite figured out how else to deal with this. I am considering hypnotherapy.

I am doing Christmas shopping. I have a few gifts bought. I still need to buy a gift for my Grandpa and my Aunt as I think they will be here for Christmas.

My Aunt Pat in Houston is feeling much better and doesn't need a liver transplant. My whole family is thrilled and she just turned 60. My Mom and my Aunt Nancy flew to Houston to be with her.

I still kind of fantasizing about buying a condo. I learned of a program which pays a silent second of $90,000. That means that you only have to qualify for the amount above $90,000. So if I want to buy a condo for 200,000 then I only have to qualify for a laon of 110,000. Then they give you a low interest rate. It is 4.25%. My Mom would have to cosign though since my credit is not good. I could wind up with a mortgage that is less than 30% of my income. Home prices are sky high now though so for $160,000 here I could get 500 square feet. Like a studio or a one bedroom. I don't know how small that is exactly but I know it is smaller than my current apt.

I went to LA unified school district classified office and picked up the application. They said that they don't keep records of past employees and the hours they worked so I must get a letter stating that I have completed 600 hours of experience with disabled children or adults. So I will get that in the next few days and then go take the test. I am very excited about that.
