Has it been four days since I posted? It doesn't seem like that long. I think I'm in a Blogger's slump. I haven't been writing, or reading. I'm just kind of blah. Counting down the days until my last day at work, and the surgery. I sure know how to plan things so they concur at the same time, don't I? I have been kind of freaking out over the fact that I am going to be unemployed. For like three months. I have decided to take the summer off. I'm really not sure what I'll do. But I think I'll be needing it after the surgery. I'll start looking for a new job in August. Don't ask me how we're going to survive with me on unemployment, because I just. Don't. Know. It will all work out. At least that's what Joe says. I pray every day that it will. Had a lazy day today, hanging around the house. Cleaned a bit, did some laundry. (Some? Six loads!). The weather was beautiful today. A bit windy this morning, but beautiful now. I don't have to work tomorrow, as I will be spending most of the day at the hospital, getting "pre-admitted" and doing blood work. They said it would take a couple of hours to complete. We also have an appointment at two o' clock to check if I can give my own blood, and finding out if Joe can donate to me. I pray that he can. I'm not sure it there is time to find another donor. If worst come to worst, I'll use a blood bank donor. It isn't my doctor's first choice, but we may not have a choice. Well, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday. Hope yours is going well.

Apply for state will pay you about 70% of your pay. It doesn't even matter that you aren't working currently (or won't be). It's based on past work history. I think for the surgery that you are having it's 8 weeks of disabilty. THEN I think you can take 6 more week of Paid Family Leave act. Same pay. One rolls over to the other.

HI Michelle,
I don't rarely comment but read often. Wishing you well on your surgery and hoping for a quick and easy recovery. Things will work out on the job front. Take care of yourself first and the rest will fall in place.
Good luck,
