Jobs, Jobs and more Jobs......

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Well had an interview in Ocala this morning for a position as a Detention Nurse. It went well. They offered me the job, but I still have to pass two level 2 background checks and have to do a lot of paperwork and get a physical. It is also about 30 miles away.
This evening I got another call from one of the local Nursing Facilities, they want me to come in on Thursday for an interview. It is only about 3 miles from my house.
I also have an offer from an agency to work at different places in corrections or hospitals.
So now I have to weed through all this and make up my mind which will be the best fit and makes the most sense for me to take. Decisions, decisions. But I think whatever I choose will be alright.
I got a extension for my Wii fit Balance board to make it higher for my exercises. But I can't weigh myself on it. It showed that I lost 113 lbs since yesterday... that was just too funny. I wish that was true, since it showed that I was not obese and now overweight. But after I removed the extension, I was back to obese and my right weight. It sure was nice to dream.....lol

    Our family is getting ready to move to another state and I'll be out there hunting for a new job, too. Would love to know I had several options ;-) I believe you'll know which will be the best fit for you. Wishing you a wonderful life in serving others.

So much better to have options and be picking from them than to be feeling stuck taking the first offer to come up.

Water Aerobics

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

So today I went to my first water aerobics class. It was a lot of fun. It appears I am the youngest lady there. They all called me the kid. One little lady told me that she just turned 94 and she had a hysterectomy about 4 weeks ago and she is not slowing down. She is a true inspiration.
I had the lady laughing , when I had a problem putting the weight on my foot and almost drowned myself........Guess I got to practice that more often. But I got a great 60 minutes work out.
Today was also my anniversary , we have been married 27 years. Fixed us some great Breakfast and Lunch. Just enjoying each others company and went for a walk with the dogs tonight.

    I love water aerobics. I haven't done it for a long time. I do not have a pool close. It is great fun, more fun than exercise. Hope you enjoy!

    I hope that you had a great anniversary! Congratulations to both of you!

I love exercising in the pool. It makes me feel so weightless and it's certainly much easier to move around!

    emoticonHappy anniversary Glad you enjoyed your water aerobics class. Been thinking about taking one but want to check out the instructors first. Understand one of the instructors kicked two of the older ladies out of class because they couldn't keep up with rest of class. Certainly don't want to be in her class.

Productive day

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I had a very productive day today. Had the house to myself. Absolutely loved it. Weigh in today,lost 24 lbs so far. Wooohoo . GO ME!!!!!!!
Did clean the whole house, laundry done and rode my stationary bike while watching my shows this afternoon. I cleaned out my dresser, had to get rid of some of my too big clothes to make room for some new ones. I actually enjoy shopping for clothes now, that I am about 4sizes smaller. I guess I am donating the big ones to the local Hospice Thrift Shop.
My son called today and told me that he was dis-enrolled from the nuclear power program in the Navy, and now he is going to be a cook. They send him through training for almost 2 years and he passed all the courses , but they claim he showed lack of interest. What a waste of money and time, but then they complain that they don't have enough nuclear power techs. The Goverment at work. Wow , it just blows my mind.

weekend.....

Saturday, April 28, 2012

This weekend I decided to chill out a little. Today my daughter ( she is 11) and I are going to watch the entire Twilight series, just us girls . She is my biggest fan. It is going to be fun, the guys are painting my father-in-laws house.
Made Chef Meg's not so southern style biscuits and gravy, it came out alright, but had to tweak the spices a little. Tonight we will have Puerto Rican and beans, with a few healthy changes. I have been getting more adventurous with my cooking and substitutions. I am using more and more vegetables and less meat. The only meat we have is either chicken, fish and sometimes a Hamburger or Hot Dog. This is really a good life style change and it is getting so much easier. My husband loves it, because it helps him to control his Diabetes better.
Next week , I am getting us a annual membership to the pool here, so we will be exercising in water more. They also offer water aerobics and I will check that out.

    That pool membership sounds like just the thing. I'm blessed with a generous neighbor with a pool. She has a great workout routine for us.

Thanks to SP, I discovered Merita Light Whole Wheat hotdog and hamburger buns and white meat turkey hotdogs. They taste pretty good and cut the calories down considerably.

Have fun with your daughter. Mine are in their 30s--and one of them said I had to read the whole Twilight series, so I did! What's one to do now that the Harry Potter ones are done???
