Sibling Weekend

Friday, June 17, 2011

I will be spending this weekend with my siblings at my sister's cottage. I think this is the first time that it will be just the siblings (and two spouses) going up - no children. I'm really looking forward to it. My sister is seriously considering selling it and I don't know how many more times I will be able to go up there.

The only thing that I am a little disappointed about is that I will not have Internet connection tomorrow. I am so used to Sparking every day that it will feel really strange not to. But, I will be back Sunday and will have time to Spark then. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Is there a library close by? You could pop in there and log on. Have a great weekend!

Maybe My Luck is Turning

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I applied on line for a customer service representative job at a local State Farm Office yesterday. She emailed me back yesterday afternoon and set up an 11 am interview for this morning. I really don't want to get my hopes up (otherwise I'd be always in a funk), but it sure would be nice if I'd be able to get this job. It's not too far from the house and heaven knows that I really need a job! I've got my fingers crossed!

    Patty -

good for you!

I'd argue that it isn't 'your luck is turning' but that you are receiving the results from your efforts. You applied for the job after all! From your previous posts, you've applied to a lot of positions and had interviews. Each interview can be practice for the one that gets you the job.

If you haven't been - send a follow up note (handwritten preferred or email) the day of the interview. That follow up will set you apart from the multitude of others, and may make the difference esp for a customer service position.

Keep faith in receiving the fruits of your efforts...they will pay off! emoticon

I've got a dilemma today. I really thought I should spend some time running errands and studying for my class. But, I woke up to a gorgeous day. I'm wanting to spend as much time as I can outside. I love this kind of weather and wish every day was like today. At least I know I can take my book outside and study sitting in the sunshine.

Starting the Week

Monday, June 13, 2011

I'm not starting the week out too well. I'm feeling a little down and discouraged because of my job and money situation. It's hard to stay positive when I've been trying for so long. It's easy to have my confidence deflate a little bit every day that I don't get even a job interview. Suggestions are always appreciated.

    Thinking of you. I did read a blog yesterday of someone who has been applying for a long time and she just followed up on a job she heard about through networking and they hired her right away. She loves the job. There is hope even when your are limited. emoticon and emoticon

Making Headway

Sunday, June 12, 2011

I'm actually seeing where I've made a little headway as far as getting the condo organized. That's making me feel like I'm accomplishing something. Now to finish the household projects as well as the other goals that I have set for myself! I'm estimating it will take at least three weeks to really see any tangible results. I've made myself a promise that I'm going to begin to journal on these goals starting tonight just to have a running accountability.

    Three weeks sounds so reasonable! Much better than my normal "oh, it'll only take a couple hours." Good for you!
