Job interview

Monday, October 28, 2013

Last week I called and asked if they were hiring sckool bus drivers. I went an put in my application and they called me Friday to come back in today and talk to someone.

I started out as a driver in my old place and then moved up to manager/supervior and all around do it all.
That is where I became so stressed out.
I tried to quit my job the last 2 summers and finally we just moved here (74 miles) away because I had to get out of there.

I loved being home this past month after moving but I have got to get to work. (the money thing, you know)

I really hope the children have more respect than the ones where I came from.
I only have 2 years and then I can go into early retirement if I want to. (hopefully)

Anyway, I will see what happens this morning.

    We can hope that others are better, that a situation will be better, that the future will be better. And, hopefully it will be. But, unless we change our thoughts about ourselves and others/situations how can it be?

A bit of an update

Monday, October 14, 2013

We have been moved as of Oct 1st (officially) and I am stil trying to get organized. We have gone from a lot of closet space,etc to 1 actual closet.

We have storage in weird places though,like a loft area in a little (summer kitchen type building with a loft upstairs) and it is quite old but nice and usuable. It is just trying to get organized that is slowing me down.

I am going to have to look for a job, perferably part time, since I wont be working at the one I thought I was going to. Politics. My husband will be doing some things there but they said 3 people from the same family is not a good idea.
In a way it is a good thing. I just have to have Faith that it is meant to be.

I was going to start looking today, but I did windows and curtains and we got some more hay for the horses.

It was a long day and I still have a few things to do.

Keep your fingers crossed for us.
Keep smiling.

October 1st

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

We are in our new place,(actually an older house) with Bella and dog and 2 cats.

We still have a lot to do because it is an older house, but we like it.
We were supposed to start our new job today but we have to wait till next Monday which gives us a little more time to get organized.

Tomorrow is my 60th birthday and it was a big move for someone our age (as we really don't know anyone at all just our son who is 50 inutes away.
We only have 1 neighbor and she came down and introducrd herself and her children and told of er pets and even made us brownies.

We are going today to look at some mini horses and mini donkeys to hopefully get one companion for Bella. (We hope we can afford it) We will try our best.

I lost a bit of belly fat with the move, walking and carrying boxes and barely eating so I am going to start October on a good foot forward and exercise and eat healthy.
Plus, i am going to do my best to get things in order and get rid of stuff that is taking up space.

Hope we all do good this month.
Love you all!

emoticon and lets keep smiling! emoticon

    This is what I love about country living... that neighbour coming to meet you with homemade brownies and kids in tow. What a lovely welcome to the neighbourhood. I do hope you can get a mini friend for Bella. They're so cute. Tomorrow is my granddaughter's birthday, and the third is mine.

Counting down

Monday, September 09, 2013

We are planning to move by the end of the month. We are moving nearly 100 miles away and now that we found a house (still renting) I am nervous.

We spent yesterday putting up post for a gate and posts for a fence for Bella.
I am grateful we found a place that will let us have our Bella right there with us. A lot of work.

We planned on moving closer to my son and to where we will beworking but we couldn't find anything we could afford there or liked so we are about an hour away. BUT that's by ggogle map. I sure we can find a shorter way once we get there, I hope.

The main thing is 8 days til I am done with my present job. All this week(5 days) and 3 days next week.(Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)

I had given my notice a year ago August and I tried this August,too.
The only way I am getting out of there is by moving away.
I can only hope that God is leading us in the right direction.

Fingers are crossed and wish us luck.
Donna

August 5th joke

Monday, August 05, 2013

A wife asked her husband:

"What do you like most about me, my pretty face or sexy body?''

He looked at her from head to toe & replied:

"I like your sense of humor."
