Last weekend's events

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

The Girl Scouts had their Beach Clean Up on Saturday. Of course, it was more like beach-pick-up-a-few-things-the
n-go-to-Burger-King-day but it was fun. The girls did not complain (well, one did, but it was really hot), everyone had gloves and water bottles, picked up a bit of trash (almost a kitchen garbage bag full of stuff in an hour's time), and went off to BK. The original idea was a treat of ice cream cones, but one of the moms ended up buying everyone burgers and nuggets so they'd have something on their stomachs before the dairy. Everyone got crowns, some ice water, and full bellies.

Sunday was grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry day. Not much going on.

Monday was the interview. I am (yes, still) so nervous. I hope that is because I'm getting the job, but I won't know until Friday or Monday. It's a call center job, answering phones then directing them to the correct department in the Family Practice or Pediatrics office, but it's a job. And, if I get my foot in the door, I can always try for a medical assistant job if one opens in the practice. The benefits are good, insurance and paid time off. Plus, you are eligible for 401-K after six months. Fingers crossed, the office is really big and very close to my house. Knocks off like 30 minutes off my drive, plus I won't have to cross that bridge every morning and afternoon during rush hour!

So, we'll see what happens. I have other things on my mind today, like the grocery shopping trip with the Girl Scouts tonight. Shopping for supplies for our camp out this weekend! So excited!

    At least some garbage got picked up! Kind of sad that the girls even have to do that if you think about it...

    How was camping?

    Good luck with you job interview! Did you hear any more about it? I hope you get it. A job with benefits is so good to have! emoticon

    You will be in my prayers and if you don't get this one I hope the perfect opportunity for you does come through soon. Keep staying positive and concentrating on what you enjoy in life.

    You'll be right. You'll get the job OK. Mark my words, I know these things.

    Thank, guys! Fingers crossed, rabbits feet, horseshoes, etc. If I don't get the job, there'll be more opportunities, but I really got to get out of where I am. I get very depressed, pissy, snippy, and come home in a bad mood. The only thing good about where I am right now is pretty much the paycheck (and that's not even that good). I take that back, the patients and some of my co-workers. But, not the boss, and she makes my life a living hell, constantly finding fault with everything I (and the other girls) do.

    I love my Girl Scouts. They keep me centered and give me something to look forward to. Of course, my kids do, too, but I get to go home to them every night :) I'm like such a nerd when it comes to GS lol.
