It's been a while!

So, here's what has been going with me.

Most importantly, my beautiful grandson was born on January 12th, weighing in at 10 pounds 6 ounces! Everyone is doing well and my son is adapting to his new role as father. We did go up to see the happy family and I can't wait to get back up there to hold him again. The latest pictures has him already pushing his butt up in the air! I am now officially being called Nana and I love it!

Secondly, I finished my medical transcription externship a week ago. It lasted 3 LONG months, but I did so well that on Tuesday I was offered a job! I'm being assigned to two projects, one that starts on Monday and the other starts in six to eight weeks, both are hospital accounts.

Thirdly, we're back to fighting the foreclosure again, which we knew was going to happen. Our lawyer stated he can keep us in the house at least for another year, which is great. Mini-Me graduates high school this June, so there really would not be anything keeping us in the house after, but it will give us more time to put away so we can move. Since I work at home, I can move anywhere without it affecting my employment.

Fourthly, yeah, I already mentioned it above. Mini-Me graduates from high school in June! No more dealing with public schools and most importantly, having to deal with the constantly changing FCAT nonsense. Thankfully, she had passed all of her FCAT requirements to graduate during her sophomore year.

Fifthly, hubby should be moving into his new position at the bank in the next couple of months and that promotion also comes with a pay increase! I cannot wait for that to happen.

Sixthly, the kittens are outside now. We got them fixed through the county's TNR (trap, neuter, release) program. Cas is not all that happy, which I thought he would be since he was escaping constantly. Sam, who didn't make one escape attempt, loves it outside. Dean, well, Dean is Dean, he always wanted to be outside. He took off but we may have seen him the other day at someone's house on another block. Sam and Cas have stayed in our yard and with them being neutered, I don't think they'll run off. We still feed them, but I've seen them hunting. We do have a small field used for crops next to our house and I've seen Socks (Cas' Pop) catch some good size field mice/rats in our yard. We also provided them with shelter when it rains. These two are not going anywhere.

I guess that's it for now. Take care everyone!

Congratulations to you and the new parents! That's wonderful!

And congratulations on the job! And Mini-Me being about to graduate! It hardly seems possible

Great to hear from you.

Thank you! Now I get to spoil my grandson and give him back to my son to deal with. ;)

Thanks on both! I think she was in 3rd or 4th grade when we met in the Stargate fandom.

I'll try and post more now that I'm done with my course.

\O/

Not only do I have a style guide and the account specifics to go through, but the manual for the transcription program I'll be using is 274 pages long. o.O

A little late night reading for you. LOL

Oh, yeah! And bathroom reading. ;)

I transferred all the guides and the samples to my Nexus tablet, so I can review them while I'm relaxing at Starbucks or Deli Lane. :)

Thank you!

Ah, it's all good. We've been fighting for a loan modification for the past 5 years, it seems like, and the only way for us to get the mortgage company to listen to us was to stop paying them. Yes, it's a risk. Yes, it ruins our credit. But all that can be fixed. Now that I have a job, it might be easier for us to get a modification or move, which the latter is what we want to do.
