William is sill looking for a job. We are doing a few applications at a time. If we do too many all at once I am worried that too many companies would call for interviews all for the same day and William would not be able to get to all of them. We have decided that he should apply at places that he would need to be driven to and say that he could only work on the weekends. Then I would drive him. He just looks so lonely. The girls have gone back to school and William is still at home. The only problem with this plan is if they want to interview him during the week.
Maggie started school today. She is in full college. No more college and high school. She had a good day, seeing a few familiar faces. She has four classes and she looks like she is looking forward to them. I am so relieved. Beth starts school tomorrow. She has first week. The kids are grouped together and do projects and presentations for the week. First week lets the kids get used to the school and there is at least one student from each grade in each group, so the students can get to know everyone. The regular school classes start next week.
Mom bought a new house. She likes to buy houses that need work and fix them up and sell them. She says that she is getting older and that this may be the last house that she buys. She got the keys for this new house last Wednesday and the moving van comes on this next Tuesday. There are a lot of things that she takes over in her car. She has a lot of glass, pictures, potted plants, some statues, coo coo clocks…we take these things over in our cars. She could have the movers move them, but she doesn’t like to pay them for the extra time that it would take. This new house is nice. It doesn’t need a lot of work. It needs a new roof and the inside needs painted. Mom seems very content at the new place.
William has had a lot of interviews. He is even shaving for interviews. He normally will only shave once a month so this is a big deal. None of the companies that he has interviewed with have called back for a second interview. William wants to get a job and move out into an apartment. Then maybe he will go back to school.
William got a call about a part time job at Burger King yesterday. He called back last night and was told that the lady that had called works from five am to eleven am. William called back this morning at five-thirty and the lady said that she was opening the store and would call back later. William is very sweet, but he isn’t a morning person so it was tough for him to get up and make the call. Now we are waiting. This is a restaurant job so I asked William to shave. He will only shave for me once a month. It isn’t the end of the month.
