I have to wait until Tuesday to pick up my app! I'm so excited! I've been in this rut for almost a year now and my son was just born in December. I am so excited my old boss just messaged me and said she fired two people today. Apparently she doesn't like being woke up at 5 in the morning because someone didn't show up for their shift and then get to work just to find the other employee slackin off during the breakfast rush. She says I'm the best worker she's had and hasn't been able to find anyone as good since I left in 2006 and she heard that I had moved back to the area and asked if I wanted a job! She's not going to be in until Tuesday though! I'M SO EXCITED!!! It may take me a month or so, but I'm finally going to be able to get off welfare! YES!!!

good for you! Start stocking up the kitchen, and get a few hundred in savings before you cancel your welfare, so that you don't end up back on it!! And be proud when you know you are doing it all on your own!! Go you!

I think they cancel TANF a month after your hire date. I think that's how it works. I'm putting most of the next TANF check into savings I think. Even if I get hired on Tuesday I won't recieve a check until the 15th of next month. Omg...I'm so excited...I'm actually going to get a paycheck again! YAY!
