Have you ever written a post and then had it come back to bite you in the butt? God, I hope this isn't one of those posts. Has this ever happened to you? The exact opposite happened after you hit the publish button?
Anywho, to the real story.........................
Things have certainly changed a bit here at A Mom, Money, and More since I started it. Anna has changed so much. I wish that I could send this little post back to myself say when the lovely child was 16. I probably would have dismissed it completely. She was the devil back then I was sure of it. All drama and mouth. She still reverts every once in a while but there is a pleasant side to her and I get to see more and more of it. She has even backed me up a few times when DJ and I have locked horns. I never would have seen that one coming. She said to me after one nasty fight with DJ, "If he would just shut his mouth, it would have blown over. Instead, he just made it worse for himself." I laughed really hard, she looked shocked and hurt. She said, "I never acted that bad." I laughed all the harder.
Anna came home a few weekends ago FOR AN INTERVIEW for a job for the summer. Holy shit! She found said job all on her own and coordinated everything even wrote a very good resume. How things have changed. The bad new is 200 people applied for 20 job openings. And would you like to know the job? Summer Camp. Yes, the shit jobs from our youth are now highly sought after. And it wasn't even posted online or in the newspaper. It was just word of mouth and that mouth traveled to 200 people. Needless to say, she is going to try for some other jobs. She is studying to be a teacher and had quite a bit of time with students and special ed. students so she is hoping that will help her get a job at a camp. God, when I was her age they NEVER had enough people to fill the slots. How things have changed.
She has been saying how she is broke and has bills to pay. HAHAHA! Next year, she is going to have her own apartment. When my SIL went to school there they rented the apartments for 2 semesters now it is a full year lease. Her boyfriend(that we really like and Den hasn't tried to shoot-I'm taking that as a good sign) has an apartment now. He is going to stay at the school for the summer and work. He said that its silly for him to move back home and work and still have to pay for the apartment. I'm just afraid that Anna will end up doing the same thing. I do want her home for the summer, I just want DJ gone. Shhhh, don't tell him I said that.
How much do you want to bet that by the end of the summer I will be wishing Anna back to school? Refer back to the opening paragraph.
Have a great day,
