Job Diary – Video #1

Tuesday evening:

I just crashed. I was working along, catching up on emails and suddenly, I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. I had to lay down for an hour. I’m up now because I have to pick Jazz up from practice, but when I get back home, I’m going straight to bed. I think this new job thing is starting to catch up with me.


Jazz had an orthodontist appointment yesterday. He had been instructed to wear some rubber bands on two of his teeth for the past six months. I remember asking him, right after his last appointment, if he knew where he was supposed to wear those rubber bands.

“Yeah mom,” he said with a touch of impatience in his voice.

Well. Come to find out, he was wearing them on the wrong teeth. SO the kid now gets to wear rubber bands for an additional six weeks on the RIGHT teeth.

Good grief.

BUT. They told Kevin (because Kevin had to take him because he’s Mr. Mom now), that they’re thinking they should have a better idea of when they will come off by the next visit. Jazz will have had his braces for two years in November (which – how is that freaking possible?!?) so I imagine we’re getting close to having them taken off.

IF he will follow directions this time.



Dude applied for a few more jobs today. Kevin has started looking at the applications that he’s submitting and yep, sure enough, he had been putting his availability as 9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday.

hahahahahahaha … as IF.

So, we proceeded to give Dude a taste of reality and tell him that it’s HIGHLY UNLIKELY he’ll land a job working 9:00 to 5:00 his very first time. I mean, it could happen, but it’s not very likely. Most likely, he’ll have to take evenings and certainly work the weekends, at least, at first.

So he’s still looking.


Jazz’s band is performing at a football Friday night. I’m excited to go because the band will be in full uniform (complete with plumes) AND the color guard girls should be in their costumes, too. Which means we’ll get to see what they have in store for competitions this year.

And speaking of competitions …

Jazz’s first band competition is this Saturday. We’ll drive down to Tulsa, watch them perform at 3:30 in the afternoone and IF they make finals (they’re going to make finals because I’m going to remain optimistic), then we’ll stick around and see how they do in finals. Which means we won’t get back home until about 3:00 in the morning.

Guess what we’re doing on Sunday?
