A Sparkie friend posted this link this AM of what a SP blog is:
It was a nice reminder after being cyber bullied on here. what blogs are meant for! I struggled many times with blogging. After blogging I've had males spark mail me in detail all about their sex therapy sessions. I've had a sexual predictors contact me after reading my blogs. Also I've been cyber bullied. So I switch up what I blog about a lot!
Yesterday I was ....well I knew my son was frustrated with working on my car. I was wondering what I would do if he couldn't get it fixed and he laid in bed until almost 1 PM which did nothing for me inside panic party! When he got up he told me he received a call about an internship at a company on the other side of the state. He figured it was someone he had talked to at a job fair. He called them back and has a face time interview with them Tuesday. The plant is based in GB but the job can be anywhere. I asked him how he felt. He said it was better then working at camp again. The day before he got up and told me he had received an email from the camp. The male he worked under for the past 2 1/2 summer quit last year half way through last summer. My son ended up doing his job without a pay raise and getting the same amount of money as the boys who were doing nothing! Anyhow the guy who quit is now grounds keeper. I told my son to ask him if he could get him a raise if my son went back to work there. I also reminded my son he didn't want to go back last summer but he ended up working at the camp 1 month longer then the other 2 years and the camp gave him everything for his room at the house he is renting on campus. He was very blessed!!! I told my son yesterday I know he needs an internship to get a better job, I just wish a internship would open up closer to me. He has applied for some. I can't get my hopes up he will be home this summer. I just reminded my son that God did bless him last summer when he didn't get an internship. My son took my to get my book that came in the library (Key Lime Pie Murder), the drug store to get his meds, then he went up to my dad's. My son came home and said he got it fixed. Now he is working on the other side. He has heard to replace both sides. I did feel better. He does also.
My son got me DIRECTV NOW. It is great but the local channels only show up half the time. My son has been chatting live with Direct TV and the cable company. He has been researching and found out it's a very common issue. I spend most of my time yesterday contacting Direct TV and the cable company. Between the 2 of us, we discovered that there is a billing zip code which is ours and a the location zip code where our cable is coming from. Both zip codes have to line up in order for us to get the local channels. My son discovered every time he flipped the internet on and off, the location zip changed. So my son spend time turning the internet on and off until the zip code was close enough to our zip code that it gave us local channels. We ended up watching the movie 'Lean ON Me' which wasn't even on a local channel-lol! Then going to bed.
Thank you all for your support!
