Good news is I'm actually working. Kelly services placed me with a plastics company. Its only for a couple months, but its kinda nice to have an income again. I miss being home with Garrett though, and I think he misses it too. But, I'm off at 4:30 pm, so I get plenty of night hours with him before he goes to sleep. I also get some morning cuddles still, as he usually wakes up a little with me, then again at about 7 am, when I'm getting dressed.
D has a physical test with Dept. of Corrections next week. If he passes that, he goes in for a 4 hour interview. Hopefully, he'll pass that and do well at the interview. It would be nice for him to have a steady job. Its possible that I could stay home with Garrett again. Mom said she'd watch him and Tabby while I complete the assignment here.
Everett housing has informed us that we're high on the waiting list for Twelve Pines. The irony being that we may not -need- it now. Of course, it all hinges on the test next week at the moment. I don't wanna refuse it, and then end up needing it. On the other hand, I don't want to accept and have to move out shortly after because we make too much. This all could be null and void though, considering we still don't know how long we'll be waiting ;)
Grandma's been diagnosed with the beginning stages of dementia. Which, explains a lot really. The doctor said she gives grandma about 5 years before she has to go into a nursing home because she'll be too difficult for family. They've also confined her to a wheel chair because she keeps falling. They thought she might have water on the brain or some such to cause that, but the CAT scan came back negative.
D offered for mom to move in with us when the time comes, and it sounds like she's taking us up on the offer. I guess its alright though, Garrett will be older and probably a little easier to handle. That, and when we want, she can babysit and not have to drive anywhere ;)
Garrett is crawling around more. He's not getting up on his hands and knees so much as doing a marine crawl around the house. He's quick too. Put any marine to shame :P He's sitting up on his own now, and will stay that way for several minutes at a time before squirming to crawl. He's teething again, this time the nubbins are in the back, but he seems to be having trouble actually cutting them. He's starting to try and pull himself up on things..mainly people when he's in their laps. I think he'll be walking before he's a year old at this rate. He's also talking....yes, its mostly babble right now, but he does say 'mama' and 'dada' every now and again.
