Anti-procrastination Monday

Standard

Today, instead of anti-procrastination Wednesday (Flylady), I had an anti-procrastination Monday. Still didn’t get as much accomplished as I wanted, but I did pretty good:

  • Got the twins all registered for this session’s extra curricular activities: Track, Rock Band, Choir, Spanish. {2 forms, 3 conversations in addition to discussing with the twins.} Scholarships plus volunteering will pay for these.
  • Posted some social media about Wednesday’s SharePoint user group meeting.
  • Called to get a request in for a VegNet booth for Earth Day.
  • Set up a radio interview, including prepping questions.
  • Talked to the station about underwriting, then talked to a natural products company that wants to sponsor our radio show. Connected the two.
  • Went to my first yoga class in several weeks. {Restorative, because I didn’t know how much I could handle after being sick and with the asthma issues I’m having: I did fine.}
  • Did more news research for the show.
  • Set up a time for a job interview later in the week (Woot!)
  • Purchased, downloaded, and installed tax software.

Mortgage “assistance,” recruiters, and forgotten shows

Standard

Today was another busy day with a few unexpected events, but thankfully nothing like yesterday. We’re down one kid tonight to make up for the extra kids earlier in the week, I guess.

This afternoon, I got my mortgage assistance paperwork in for a program that I’ll probably never be able to take advantage of. Because it takes so long to go through that:

  1. I’ll have a job by then, or 
  2. Our credit will be ruined and they’ll have kicked us out of the house already

Ha! 

Seriously, though, it does take about 6 months for this government program to go through; It’s for people who are on unemployment and it makes their mortgage payments for up to a year, interest free. Sounds too good to be true, right? It took me a month to get a slot—and that was after spending every other Wednesday, 3 times in a row, on the computer at noon on the dot submitting and submitting and submitting the application. Finally, three weeks ago I lucked out. Sort of. I got a slot. But their computer system had a glitch that wouldn’t allow me to log back in and complete my paperwork. And they took 3 weeks to fix it. It took me about 15 minutes to fill out the information they were requesting. It would be kind of funny, actually, if I didn’t think that they’re likely to delay the approval process 3 weeks because of their own mistake.

This evening, I also got to meet with a recruiter about a job opp that’s been in the works for a few months now. Apparently, I’m still in the running and will hopefully get an interview soon!

And then I spent several hours at the station. We did a local interview, some editing, and took out some outdated materials from last Tuesday’s show. The station ended up having a mix-up over our new twice monthly time-slot, and on Tuesday, they forgot to air our show! So, they’re going to air it next Tuesday instead. Of course, it’s already online—it’s just going to air in Central Oregon for the first time next Tuesday.

Tomorrow morning I’m helping out with the last day of Kids Radio Camp. That should be fun!

What I did today

Standard

Here’s what I did today: Reviewed my employment profile, wrote essay questions, updated my resume, and wrote a cover letter for one job app. Which thankfully I did get in before the deadline. I hope the quality is OK.

Here’s what else I did today: Bitched and moaned because I’ve felt like ass for the 3rd day in a row. Feels like pneumonia, but I’d love to be wrong.

Weird that hubby and I are super sick, but the kids are not (very glad they’re not).

Guess I’ll be glued to this bed again tomorrow. Oh well, a chance to catch up on even more reading, some House or Glee, or maybe even take a crack at those ATV show notes if I can do them in small batches.
