Still Kicking

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I am still hanging out here at Spark just not posting as much due to time constraints.

I am still working 45+ hours a week and the hubster is still hitting a brick wall trying to find a job. Sad really I am over worked and he can't seem to find anything that will pay beyond what he makes on EI. I have revised his resume several times now to try and focus on what prospective employers are looking for and sent them out but no bites yet emoticon

I have finished my 2nd proficiency exam and passed with a 94.5% average (honors marks emoticon ), super happy about that. I am now scheduled for my practicum interview on March 27th. I know that they said the interview would only last 15 minutes on the phone but I still have asked for the afternoon off on that day. I felt somewhat justified in doing so because this past week has been hell. Our manager was off again for the whole week and my coworker still really isn't up to snuff on doing what a manager should (title is Management Trainee...hmmmmmm....then MANAGE). That said my manager has been super cool about me doing school work during slow times at work and is actually encouraging me to pursue what I am in school for full-time and ditch my current job. He actually told me that he thinks I can do way better than my current employment situation.

The hubster and I went to visit our niece today and enjoyed some great conversation. She is having some issues with the rest of the family so we just let her know that she is never a bother to us and can call whenever she wants to and one of us will always be there for her. I have realized that certain members of my family are just toxic and have started limiting the time I spend with them outside of larger family gatherings, and told her to consider the same.

Here is hoping that all my Spark Friends are well and that life isn't treating you too bad. Take care and until next time stay loose emoticon
