Thank you for all the good wishes!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Did not get that job, but applying for others the same business is posting. The HR manager said they'd had 75 applicants for that single position. I believe the interview went alright, but by the end, I thought she had ruled me out - probably because I haven't worked directly with patient charts before.

The other issue I'm having today is that I think my big freezer quit yesterday. When I went to get something out for supper last night, things weren't frozen hard. Have to check on it this morning. Not sure what I'll do with the stuff that's in there.

    My friend had space in her garage freezer, so I took all the meat and veggies there. It is cooling some, but I have to check on it tonight. It's supposed to keep things at 16 below 0.

Good job interview scheduled

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Have an interview scheduled for a week from today at a place where I'd really like very much to work. It's a non-profit family medical center that's helping everyone get affordable medical care. They're doing great good for our small city! Plus, I'd be a very good fit for the position. Please wish me luck!

Job Search

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Have been working harder at searching for a new job. Succeeded at getting my auto insurance bill reduced by nearly half; still it will be hard to pay. Just have to keep my chin up and keep on keepin' on.

Sad

Monday, June 27, 2011

One of the outdoor, stray kitties that I've been feeding on the back porch was dead in my driveway when I got home from church yesterday afternoon. She had rigor mortis, so she'd been dead for a while. I saw her briefly the night before. She was the only one of the outdoor kitties that was friendly and came to be petted. She was usually there to greet me whenever I came or went. Pretty little thing with long black fur. I don't know what killed her: she seemed quite healthy, and had not been run over. I suspect she might have been dead beneath my car when I pulled out yesterday morning. No blood was evident, so I just don't know. Even though she'd only been hanging around for a few weeks, I'd been thinking of bringing her inside. I'll miss her.

Staying where I was

Monday, June 27, 2011

Well, it turned out that funding was somehow found, and the folks who had been told they would be laid off were not. The very day after I had a successful interview for the new position, I was asked to stay where I have been, and I accepted. It was explained, though, that the same situation may come up again in September, so I guess it's a quarterly issue somehow. I still need a "real" job: something more than 18 hrs a week at minimum wage.

    Hoping that you get a better paying job soon. It
is so hard these days to find a job, no matter
where you live, or what kind of education that
you possess. emoticon
