Good evening, everyone. :hello:

Yeah, so much for my taxes. Procrastination city. But I did do some research and cogitating for a story for an anthology blab told me about. And I made an impulsive trip to Applebee's. :mellow:

It was nice to see and smell flowers, this time of year.
Ahh, aromatherapy. :feelinggood:
and pick up more :dog: :poop: before the snow arrives.
You should have gone to the flower show after. :no:

Wait a minute -- is it April 14th already? :lol:
Despite my desire to replenish my car money quickly, it will probably come to that. :lol:

I spent the weekend keeping warm while working on tech oriented training for work. Checked out houses that are available where I'm looking to move, and installed some new parts on my car I ordered. The frustrating part about shopping for a home (at this time) is that I'm slated for a pay adjustment that I've been told "is coming". Meanwhile, annual evaluations are approximately 20 days away which means an annual salary increase. I can't commit to anything right now until I know how much of a pay bump I'll receive. GAH! Knowing my luck, one of the houses I like will be snapped up by the time I'm ready to commit.

Same here. Raises come next month and I might be getting a job upgrade in the second quarter, but I have no idea how much either of things mean in terms of money.

I miss the sound of frogs croaking away. In my previous house here in Richmond, we lived near a creek and we could hear thousands of them. Now I never hear them. At least we do have plenty of birds :yes:

Good afternoon. :hello:

I'm caught up on this thread. Although I kinda skimmed through.

Glad to hear Ron is home from the hospital. My dad was only hospitalized twice with his diverticulitis. He mostly controlled it through diet.

Today I had a phone interview with the owner of a store looking for a bookkeeper. It's down in Mt Dora, about a 40 minute drive. Not a big deal to me, but it seemed that it was for him! He'll be calling people for face to face interviews next week, and schedule them for the following week. I don't expect to hear from him. :no: He has about 30 applications to go through this week.

I also put in an application for a receptionist position down in Leesburg for the Community Action agency. Haven't heard from them, but they are still running their ad. *fingers crossed*

Scott, I made chocolate chip cookies last week. Alas, there are none left. Next time, I'll try to let you know earlier. (right!) :lol:

That's not a very long drive. What does he want, somebody who lives next door?

Fingers crossed. Good luck with both of them. The Community Action Agency sounds better, but maybe that other guy will surprise you.

Actually, there's a Thai massage place down the street from me and I recently found out that my insurance will reimburse me up to $300 for alternative health treatments, including massage. So that's gonna happen. :lol:

When I was at BMC, I used to go for a massage once a month. After I left there, I was less stressed so I stopped going. Plus it's expensive. But since they're right down the street and my job will pay for it....

Sorry I missed this earlier. They've tempered their situation since it's been cold. I'm certain they'll start up again before going dormant very soon.

GM.
Is there a problem with your job situation?
not with the work i have - only with the lack of more work to add to it. I am living on £75PW and need to earn around £100 -140PW to live 'comfortably'. I havent been able to pick up any new cleaner-carer-gardener-childcare-companion-petcare styyle jobs and was contemplating getting PT work at a care home - the trouble is, there would be a bunch of pros and cons to consider and i might miss some - so need my 'advisor'...to adivse!
ours too, gary - |i just wondered if frogs do that all over or just here and in other parts they stay up.
well scottydog - i just so happened to bake a vegan CHOCOLATE cake with salted caramel coating of which there are two slices left.... :D

Today's a heavy teaching day. The Wife had to wake up very early to go to Wash DC for a work-trip today, so I'm a tad sleep-deprived. Hopefully I can catch a late nap around 4:30 this afternoon.

Today they asked me to orient someone. How can I orient someone when I'm disoriented myself? :loopy:
