At the end of this month I will receive my very last paycheck from the Department of Defense. Not very far away, huh? Oh - also, at the end of this month Muffin will start Kindergarten. Two big milestones that I'm unprepared for.
I went to register Muffin at the local elementary school yesterday but since I'm house sitting I didn't have the "proof of residence" part of the registration package. I explained my situation to the secretary, she went and asked someone in a back office, then she came back and called the superintendent's secretary. They determined that my lack of a permanent address - even though I did have a place to stay - put me in the "homeless" category.
That's right. Muffin and I are technically considered homeless.
Our next step involves extended paperwork, a copy of my friend's deployment orders, and some stuff notarized at the bank. It's a mess. If I hadn't already told Jackass that Muffin was going to Kindergarten and that we would have to revise the visitation I would totally home school her. After all - it's not like I've got anything better to do!
I don't have a job and I don't have any leads either. Yesterday I spoke with two new headhunters and they are going to see what can be done. I also applied for a couple of jobs I found on the internet. I've been applying pretty regularly - but the news hasn't been good. Apparently, the RDU area has been hit fairly hard and the job market is pretty dismal. I might have to expand my search location...
But, I have to keep trying and I need to spend more time on it. So, I'll be late posting and late commenting in order to try and utilize the better part of my day fixing my homeless situation. Keep your fingers crossed!
