The woman who is temporarily watching Vicky decided she wanted to do it all the time. She is still working so on days Vicky is off and we aren't, her mother or mother-in-law will fill in until she decides to quit (sometime in May). I hope this works out. I don't need the stress...

Took Vicky to see the new Turtle movie yesterday. She was a bit scared on a few scenes but overall she liked it. When she is scared she covers her ears. Not the eyes. Strange child..haha. We also went to Wal-mart to get just ONE Barbie movie but walked out with two and some dumb work out video with someone named Sabrina on it. Mom is such a wuss. Oh well, it was her birthday stuff so it's all good. Her sister still needs to get her "Happy Feet" and "Eragon" and she better!! We went over to Lauren's yesterday and I snitched a few Disney movies to umm...errrr...(can't say what I do with them)...and have to take them back today. Expecting rain so praying it holds off. I have to return to Walmart to buy hangers for all the cast-off shirts Lauren gave Vicky yesterday. I say cast-off but some of them still had the blasted tags on them! This child shops wayyy too much!!! All in all, not a bad weekend. Oh yea, have a temporary sitter for Vicky. No one has called yet about the ad I ran in the paper though. The temporary sitter is thinking of quitting her job (works where I do but gets off at 3pm) and sitting full time for a few kids. She wants to stay home with hers and home school them. Hoping she does then she'll watch Vicky full time. Cross your fingers!!!

Vicky is number 15,462 on the waiting list for DSSW (Disability Services of the Southwest) for a "personal assistant". Real encouraging, isn't it? Apparently though, there is a loophole. I don't have all the information yet but I've been told I can put her in a nursing home for a "small" amount of time and that will bump her to the top of the list. I've heard from two sources it can be one night or up to two weeks. I have to wait till next week to talk to a woman who knows more about this situation. I HATE to even consider putting Vicky in a home but I'm at my wits end right now. Running out of sitters all the time is stressing me out so much. A shame I can't just get them to pay me to watch her instead of some stranger doing it. Pay me enough and I will stay home with her for good. Crazy world, isn't it?

Sighs. Sitter called last night. Apparently she is giving notice that her last day is March 30th. Oh, Vicky is just wonderful to sit for but she just can't do it. Cuts into her volunteer time and her family apparently wants her at their beck and call. Why do these people even bother to try? They KNOW they can't do it. Now I have to wait till next week to put notice in paper AGAIN and pray with all I have that someone will want to do it. I'm at a loss ...I truly am.

So far life is going on an even keel lately. No major castrophes (not holding my breath). Went and got my you know what's smashed today for an annual checkup. I still think it's unfair that men don't get a certain body part smashed like we have to..there is no justice in that somehow. I'm gaining poundage somehow over the past couple of days. I'm hoping it's just water gain and nothing that will stick around longer than a few days. Kidlet has been behaving after going through an attitude problem last week. I think she was PMS'ing but not telling her that. : ) Now if I could just get rid of this stuffy nose from allergies, all would be fantastic. Our weather can't make up it's mind if we are going to freeze or burn up. I'm opting for a middle ground myself. Sounds nice, right?
