Mortgage “assistance,” recruiters, and forgotten shows


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


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 We did a local interview, some editing, and took out some outdated materials from last Tuesday’s show.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!
