UpDate on Status...

Hi all. I am so happy. I have gotten so much information the last two days. Its taken me this long to process it. I can start my CNA classes as early as June 1st if the lady they are holding the spot for doesnt want it for June.. If she takes it I have to wait till July but still at least I have the information I need. I have to pay 500 dollars for the course and 115 dollars for the State Certification but not bad at all. I was also told to start looking for jobs now.Even though I am not certified I can still start looking for jobs i was told.

I have to drive from Green Bay to Oshkosh though to get my classes done. Not to bad.Its only an hour drive from here. I dont mind if it gets me out of McD's. I told the manager last night that hired me that I am going to have to go to just Weekends starting in June or July.. I have it figured maybe I can get into a nursing home or something where I can do grunt work until I get my Certification also. I am so happy. You know how much easier it makes it going into McD's each night and realizing I dont have to stay there for ever...

I got my paycheck yesterday and went on a small shopping spree. I bought four new shirts for myself. They are summer shirts but shirts and the girls each got a new bikini. they look just adorable.. Esp Kora for some reason. She is so skinny.. Bri is kinda chunky.. That is ok though..

Jon came in last night and threw his keys at me and said to take his car if needed because he was going to New Hampshire. His parents are moving back to Green Bay and he has to go drive his parents car back here. His dad didnt want to hook the car up to the Truck they are driving back with there stuff in it. So I is boring Jon's car for the weekend. Then on Monday I think he is going to move his stuff out and go back and stay with his parents. Not sure there though. Its going to feel really weird having our house back to ourselves even though he isnt here much right now. I think what is going to feel weird is that I am used to having a late night coversation when I come home and he is up or just coming in.

I have some pretty awsome hairties to show you all but still no camera. My MIL is looking at coming down this month to see us and bring my camera back to me.. I cant wait. I feel naked without it.. That is life though.. Oh before I forget Jeff's older brother and his wife had a baby girl April 23rd. She was 9 lbs,11ozs if I remember and 22 1/2 inches long. They had to deliver her by c-section. She was to big to be born naturally.. Big baby. I am sure glad neither of my girls were that big. With C-sections you cant lift anything over ten pounds for six weeks.. Yikes.. And with the carseat and baby that is over ten pounds..

Her name is Jillian Rose. Very pretty I think.. Well I suppose. I need to go find something to eat. Jeff should be home soon and he wants to go to the College and then I want to stop by the Colllege Library to see about some information on the course I will be taking in Oshkosh. Getting a head start preparing basically.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend and I will catch you all later. Hope its Sunny and warm where you are this weekend. N..


UPDATE.....I worked Friday night like usual but it was the 1st of May ok.. Nothing new but we were busier than heck and I was in first booth and I kept up.. Horrrayy Mee... Horray mee.... We were around the building and out on the road for a while and I kept up without help. I mean a couple of times I had to have help but other wise I got it by myself.. I am so happy.. I was a bit nervous at first but I got through it..

Another update also is that we figured I am going to go through a correspondance school to get my degree instead of starting in May or June. I can do the course as quickly or as slowly as I want with this point. I am still looking for Jobs and its exactly the same thing. Its where I can stay working my hours until I get the degree. Otherwise I would have had to cut my hours.. Not good finacially.. Yuckie.. Well anyway I need to get to bed. Just thought I would mention this small update to my great and patient friends I have. N..

Jeannie said...

That's wonderful that you can start moving on so soon! How long does the course last?

Gayle said...

Congratulations, Tweety! That's wonderful!

Regarding not commenting, I understand completely. I haven't been able to do as much of it lately either, and haven't had time to post as often. I don't know how you find the time to post as often as you do.

Good luck with the course!

Good luck to you, Tweetey! I think it's great that you have decided to do this. Good girl!

Gardenia said...

Well, having a plan is so helpful in enduring isn't it? You are so busy - but you are moving forward the whole while! Seems like there is lots going on everywhere!

One very important thing about being a CNA - learn to lift correctly. I knew more than one CNA who screwed up their back. Also, buy some back support. I don't know what those things are called, but you probably know what I'm talking about. They're those things that you wear that support your back. Buy one of those things.

The good thing about CNA work is there are ALWAYS jobs for a CNA. CNAs have no problems finding work. I've been through several recessions now, and the one group that's always employed are Nurses and Nurse Assistants.

Oh, one more thing, if it wasn't for not being able to stomach other people's blood, I'd be a Male Nurse. Don't make as much money as I do, but never go out of work. I make a lot of money, but I'm always out of work so it all evens out. I'd rather have the consistency of always being employed instead of scrambling every few years trying to find a job.

Nurses are never out of work.

This is so great, you should be so proud of yourself!

Great News about CNA, took the classes many many years ago, worked as one for one year and then went back to school for nursing. I loved hospital work but hated the weekends and holidays. GOOD LUCK and hope the job market is there for you also!!
