Good morning ladies, I am slightly confused by the summary and body boxes on the screen... Hmm, okay, well then, I hope everyone has a start to the day. What's on the agenda?

Good morning ladies. Pretty quiet morning here. Not much on the agenda, possibly an errand or two at lunch. Not sure what's for dinner tonight, depends on if DH gets home later than planned or not. I do have a chiropractor appointment after work tonight. Jordyn has work and practice tonight. Have a great one.

Have an interview tomorrow with a non-profit.  Becca was excited- I've had to tell her many times that it is a NON-proft- so I'm not going to be making tons of money (if I take this job- it would require me to drive around to prisons in the area and work with inmates transitioning out of the system so that they don't re-offend and come back).  The HR person called yesterday- but I wanted to give dh a heads-up to what I might be getting into.  Not that he has a say in what I want to do- but I wanted to discuss this job.  He thought it sounded neat- we had a friend at a previous church who did this on the state level (I had forgotten about that)

Hm- I wonder.  I'd have to look into this- but I wonder if my student loans could be forgiven if I did this for a few years.  Need to look that one up.

So I'm trying to think about what to make for dinner.  If I make soup again- it'll be the 4th day in a row that we've had it. But dh has church tonight until whenever.  Becca's got Regional Orchestra rehersal tomorrow night so she won't be home.  And I want to make something that we can just heat up tomorrow since this interview's at 3:30

Cheryl, you may be able to, there are certain terms in order to do it, there used to be a link to an article on the debt Q&A board here on IV about getting them forgiven. I'll see if I can dig it up for you. I looked into it working at a state agency, but when I consolidated my loans I went to a different company than the one that you can forgive them through and if I switched them over to the other one, I would have started the clock over again, and by the time I gained enough time, my loans would be paid off as it is. I wish I had known that in the beginning, I could have had mine forgiven here very shortly.

Hey there.  Well, got the kids off to school and had a lazy morning.  I usually take Wednesdays as my lazy day.  But the laziness is over.  I chose to not clean my kitchen floor earlier this week and really need to get it done.  Tim and I took a lunch together and he just left after dropping me off.  I think I may run out to Starbucks, I think I may have another free coffee available on another card but since it's connected to an old meial address and can't remember my log in info for it I don't know.  I finished decorating our small tree in the family room.  It's so cute, I love this tree.  It's all mine, no meaning in the ornaments I find really small cute ones to put on it, don't need to consult anyone about it.  LOL  The kids and I will be going to my moms after school for a bit and then home for homework and dinner.  

Dinner will be that roast I decided to not cook yesterday.

I had planned on a day of lazy for myself today.  I am just too drained of energy to do much of anything.  I don't know why.  It's been a low key morning.  Zeph watched a history show, built with Legos and played on his Ds while I slept.  He's hitting the books this afternoon. 

My cleaning can wait.  I'm looking forward t DH coming home from this trip.  It's a good thing we decided against TX since he is flying from TX to  NY.  I'm glad not to have to do the drive home alone.

Very cute tree Chelle! We have one of those, its in the attic. It used to always go in Jordyn's room every year and she had their special winnie the pooh fiberglass bulbs she put on it along with a few other sentimetnal ones to herself. She doesn't have the room in her current room to put it up, so it hasn't been up in a few years. I may ship it to her for christmas at college next year since I know they won't have room for a full sized one in the dorm.

Cheryl, here is the student loan forgiveness info: http://www.staffordloan.com/repayment/forgiveness.php I know there was another one, but with the changeover, I can't find it right now.

Thanks Tracy!

It's something worth looking into.  There was something on there about making 120 payments while you're working there- I don't know if I've got that many payments (it's not a huge loan- but it's still money hanging over my head). 

If I take a job there (interview at 3:30 tomorrow) I'll definately look into it :)
