I called my Keratoconis specialist, and they still haven’t gotten the news whether I qualify for the trial runs yet or not, and I am starting to worry. If by Halloween, I STILL don’t hear back, I will call again, because this is getting ridiculous.
As for my schedule and lack of commission activity, I do apologize for taking so long. With my 8 week classes, and my work schedule, I am literally either at work all day, or in school all day.
Seriously, they have me working from 2pm to 10pm, and whatever little time I have between waking up, and getting ready to go to work, I am using that time for homework or unwinding on my blog.
The two days off they do give me, I am at my collage campus, from 12:30 PM to 9:50PM. I do get little hour breaks between my classes, but I feel too paranoid about loosing my tablet, or the pen to bring it with me. There has also been reports of stolen laptops and cellphones going around in my campus, so that’s also adding to my anxiety of bringing anything other than my folders and pencils to classes.;;
There is some good news though, Walmart finally has hired another person for my department, so I won’t have to be working 7-9 hour shifts almost every day ( and I am still considered part time. Go figure). so starting in november , my work load should lighten enough that I will have enough time to tackle my load of commissions that I still owe. I’ve been talking to the other ladies of my department, and we are trying to work with ouor shift manager, so that I could only work weekends and have my weekdays free, and give the other ladies the extra hours I really can’t handle, and that they need more than me (One of them is a single mother, and the other uses the money she earns at walmart to care for her elderly mother). If things work out, I should be able to open up commissions again sometime early next year.
As for the money raised, so far, it’s still in the 900 range, which I will be using to help lighten the loan me and my sisters will have to be getting for my surgery, if I still don’t get word back about the trials. I’ve been talking to my mom, and she says, if we can’t afford it, we’ll start looking into going to maybe Canada, and see how much more affordable it is there, using the donated money, and some borrowed from family to cover the expenses. I’m currently doing some research to learn more about the procedures and expenses there, before I completely commit to this idea. It would be the first time I’ve been out of the country since I was 3, so I also have to think about getting my passport, plane tickets, hotel services, and such, so I really have to balance everything down, if I want to save as much as I could.
I really can’t wait for my eyes to be fixed though. It’s coming to the point where I have to close my right eye, just so I can see more clearly with my left I find myself keeping my right eye closed more than I have it open, and it kinda scares me that this might be what I will be stuck with. It’s not as bad as going completely blind, obviously, but it’s still not an ideal choice.;;
