I'm so glad it's Friday. I didn't sleep well last night (Dh had a rough night) and am ready for a nap I wish I could take. The Cymbalta meds don't seem to be helping him at all, in fact, he seems worse. He's tired ALL the time and sleeps a lot more. He'll get up for an hour or so and then go back to bed for 2 or 3 hours and then nap again after dinner. He has no energy at all now. At least before, even though he was in pain, he was able to putter around and do some things. We go back next Friday for a follow-up appointment where I doubt he will be staying on this med, unless this is just a side effect that will wear off after getting used to it.
Ds was supposed to get a call for a phone interview a couple of hours ago for a job he applied for. He waited almost a half hour and then had to leave. He said if they called while he was driving, he'd pull over. I haven't heard from him if they ever called or not. Frustrating, as I know he was really looking forward to this interview and he didn't want to have to do the interview while he was on the road. His other phone interview yesterday went well and now he's waiting to hear how he did on the skills and personality tests they sent him. Other good news is that his 2nd quarter hours from his layed off job were finally reported and he finally got his unemployment benefits deposited! Only $150 a week, but it will sure help him until he finds a new job. There were quite a few new job postings this week for entry level jobs in his field and he applied for all of them.
It's going to be a quiet weekend. Ds will be gone all weekend and once Dd gets home this afternoon from her last day of tennis camp she is going with a friend and her family to a major league baseball game. Should be fun for her (and free! haha). Guess I'll be reading or watching tv tonight. Maybe there's a movie on Dh and I can find to watch together.
UPDATE: I texted Ds and he said they did call for the interview and he thought it went really well. The interview lasted about 20 minutes and they said they'd let him know next week if they will schedule him for an in-person interview. He always interviews really well, especially on the phone - he always sounds so confident and personable. I just keep praying he'll find something soon!
