GET A JOB!!!

 Hehe, changed the title ---- Here's my good news!

 

I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In short, I WAS on SSDI for having cancer, going through 10 surgeries, treatments, etc. I came up for review to renew disability and was denied. At first I was in shock and freaking out. I've been given the clean bill of health by all my doctors. I have (hopefully) no more surgeries to deal with.

With all that said, I *COULD* go on PA. We qualify for pretty much everything. Cash assistance, Food Stamps, WIC...after we bought the house and are going to lose SSDI, our income level will go down and they will take into account or mortgage when calculating our income.

We have been just getting by and "doing ok" for the past 2 years with me being on SSDI.

We talked about it, and decided for me to try to work. I put my resume out there two weeks ago, got a bite with a reputable company for an inside sales/marketing/B2B job with Motorola. REALLY good benefits.....I had an interview last week and go back in tomorrow to iron out all the details.

I'm sooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!!!! FINALLY, I get to go do what I'm highly proficient in, do what I love, make some good money, and not be on any sort of assistance (which is good for those who need the help)............. 

I just wanted to share the good news with you all!!!
