Welcome to my Random World

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have fun browsing through things. Im not going to write about anything in particular and I dont promise to be politically correct. Though I sit at a desk and type for work I dont even promise a lack of typos but we can all hope I get that part right...

What I do promise is to just share my life. Interesting or not you will get to read all about it and maybe find something to laugh at or maybe some of my misfortune at times will make you feel better about a bad time you are going through...

What I hope to get out of this is just an account of my life so that when I am 80, gray and maybe finally getting married I wont forget everything that has happened to me.

Im getting forward to reading your comments and thoughts on what I have to say so dont be shy I promise I dont bite, well, not to hard anyway...

Busy few weeks ahead!

So I have been on the job hunt recently and my goodness how frustrating. Seems for every open position there are 100+ applicants so getting your face in front of the potential new boss is hard to come by. I think one of the things that was getting my resume tossed aside was the fact that I have worked from home for the past 4+ years...

In the past any job I have ever interviewed for that I actually wanted I have been offered and this was just very frustrating to know I can do the job that is listed and not even get a call back. That all changed a few weeks ago...

In one week I had 2 interviews both for jobs that I wanted to get. Both part time and able to work around each other as well as my at home work.

That being said I went to interview number 1 and new right away that the decision was going to come down to personality. There were 3 of us that were in the running and the fact that I had them laughing the entire time and just having a good time with things made me feel VERY confident. I got the call that afternoon that the job was mine! YAY ME!! Its a job at the school which is a 5 min walk to my house (and that is if I walk slow) I of course took the job. The pay is amazing and the hours are only 3 a day and I get my summers off as well as all the random days through the year including a Christmas break and Spring break, who can beat that plan. Not to mention it gets my foot in the door in the case that something else might come up. I started there last week and I LOVE IT!! Its been a challenge as we have had someone out sick 3 of the 7 days I have been working there so far, so being short staffed in the kitchen is hard work but so worth it. The ladies I work with are GREAT and I cant see myself leaving there for quite a long time!

The second interview I had came in 2 parts. First I met with the owner and the interview went REALLY well. He told me he was interviewing about 12 ppl and would know by the following day if he wanted me back for a 2nd interview with the office manager. I got the call and went in for the 2nd interview which again went well and once again it was between myself and 2 other people. I thought I was going to get the job but as soon as I told them my hours at the school the vibe changed a bit and I though CRAP I just blew it. This is a part time job as well only 4 hours a day I figured we could sort something out but I got the call that afternoon that they went with someone else but if in the case that person didnt work out would I like them to keep my resume on file to which I said ... of course...

That brings me to yesterday. I get a call from a number I dont know and as always let the call go to VM cuz Im not trying to talk to anyone I dont know. Come to find out it was the office manager at that company saying that the other person didnt work out and would I be willing to take the position? We worked out the hours for the time being and all is well with the world. I start on Wednesday.

Needless to say between 3 jobs and working about 80 hours a week on top of mom duty, baseball games and keeping the house clean I wont be getting much sleep in long doses but I will take what I can get and I feel this is finally the weight of the world easing off my shoulders! It will be a crazy couple of weeks til school is out but in the end I think its going to be everything I have been hoping for over the last year!

There is something to say with not giving up hope and good things come to those who wait...

What is your world looking like? Do you love your job? Are you looking for a new one?

Spring has SPRUNG!

Its finally Spring around here and am finally out of my 'winter funk'! Like alot of ppl I sincerely get in a funk right around January of every year. Christmas is over, its a new year and Im ready to start anew with a fresh outlook for what is to come. Then reality sets in. I notice that work slows down a bit, my checkbook is in the negative from all the Christmas spending and taxes are right around the corner. Working for myself I have to do all my own taxes which of course requires paying in every year so that in itself can give me a headache...

So I started out the year with all these goals one of which was to keep this blog up to date and then in the end I have already failed. Now that the snow seams to FINALLY be gone and my mood is lifting I plan to get back on track. That being said here is the good, bad and the ugly...

THE BAD... (lets get this out of the way)
About a month ago my son was injured at school. In gym they were playing a game called Mat Ball. Apparently this is the new name for kickball or something similar enough to it for it to be explained to me as that. Anyway some kid tripped over the mat and tumbled into my son which in turn bent his knee backward! Now this happened in his 2nd hour class so between about 8:30am and 9:30am. My son isnt one to cry especially in front of people so the fact that when he was 'knocked on his ass' caused him to start crying at school and in the need of ice for the next 3 hours and the fact that the teacher told him he should see the doctor ASAP I am still a bit miffed that not a phone call, email or incident report was made. He proceeded to finish out his day in pain and limping walking through the high school from class to class and then home from school as well. When he returned home his knee was still swollen so off to the doctor we went. Xrays are taken and nothing is broken hes just told to rest... We have hit the doctor 2 times, the 3rd time was 2 weeks later and things were getting progressively worse. He at this point couldnt physically straighten out his leg! So we had an MRI done and were told it is a deep tissue bruise and he needed to see an Ortho Therapist. The Ortho said he sprained his knee and calf muscle but would be fine in 2-4 weeks. Hes doing fine now and is back to playing baseball and riding his bike around chasing girls. So in the end all is well but Im still a bit pissed at the school what IF he had broken or chipped a bone? Anyway end of rant...

The UGLY...
I need to get into an aesthetician and get my eyebrows done! They are a hot mess and doing them myself isnt working anymore I dont have the patience to do them and then end up uneven. Others cant tell but I can and its driving me nutty! Also I had to shop for clothes and I HATE shopping! Yes I know Im a woman I should LOVE shopping but I just dont. Not sure why just never been a fan but not only did I have to shop for clothes which in turn reminds me of another failed attempt to get into shape but I have to shop for WHITE clothes... I need to have some white shirts and pants even and that is never a good look for anyone... Why do I need white clothes? Keep reading Im getting there

The GOOD...
The reason for the white clothing from head to toe.... DRUM ROLL PLEASE**************** (yes those were drum beats) I have a new job! Its only part time and only lasts til the beginning of June but I am soooooooooooo excited. I am working at the school in the lunchroom. Doing dishes and serving food. Yes I know doesnt sound like much fun but really it is! I went in for training today and love it. After working at home for the last 4+ yrs its nice to know there are actual live people out there and the kids were great. All very friendly 'nice to meet you' from many of them today and I cant wait for them to really get to know me. I wont be working it in the summer but I will then go back for September when school starts again and I feel this is only the beginning for things to come! I am still working from home but for now this is picking up some of the slack on things. Like I said it is very part time but it works for me and what I need.

So that was a bit long winded as usual and now that I am going to blog more often you wont have to read such long posts...

What have you been up to since I been gone and what is going on in your world?
