Okay I have not been around here much as I am trying to crunch out as much school work as possible before the end of the month. I really, really want to be done my medical transcription course before mid-April. I am about 2/3 of the way through now so it is just a matter of buckling down and getting it DONE.

The hubster is still looking for work and hoping that he finds something before his severance pay runs out. He has applied to a few places but so far no one has gotten back to him. I have enlisted the help of my manager who used to be a headhunter and recruiter to look over the hubster's resume and maybe give a few tips as to what he can do to improve it and his chances of finding a job.

The oldest child unit and I are training for a 10K in April and thus far she is kicking my butt on the training runs. I hope I can keep up with her when race day hits.

Work still sucks and the new guy is still irritating me but I have gone to the old stand by behaviour of avoiding the front office at all costs and just cleaning cars and cleaning the bay (by now it should be spotless...LOL). I am really not looking forward to the last week of the month again, as the manager is going on vacation again. He has to use up is vacation time before April 1. So he will also be taking a week off in March as well emoticon .

I am just waiting to see if my time off request was accepted for June, I am taking the week of my anniversary off and I also have another week off already in August. That just leaves a few choice days (aka personal days) to figure out when to take. I think that at least 1 of them will be shortly after the boss gets back from vacation. I will create my own long weekend.

This is kind of all over the place so I will sign off for now. Hope all my Spark Friends are having a great start to the week. For us it was Family Day, so everyone was home. I just don't understand why my province decided to have it the week before the rest of Canada.
