Hi all, hope all is well with everyone.

My interview went very well yesterday! So good in fact, that the girl that interviewed me said she wished we'd be working at the same school. A nice compliment! But there are still ropes to tend to. The down side is that I've been self employed for 20 years. All previous work history to that was in the 80's & some of those offices are either closed down, or folks are gone now. They did not want to take my last job into consideration for references, although I still have a few contact numbers from them.

Upside is, I have two friends that also work for the school district, so I gave them their names & numbers for references. Hopefully, they'll accept that. It's up to the Human Resource department to consider that avenue.

Then I was still feeling a bit funky with the sore throat. So I went to the doctor. If I'm possibly going to work with kids, then I need to be sure I don't have anything contagious. As it turns out, my sore throat is viral, but I'm at the tail end of it. The reason I've not healed totally yet is due to allergies. Good thing I didn't try to mow the acreage on Wednesday like I wanted to! So I just have to remember to keep taking my allergy pills & it'll clear up.

This morning I spent time outside doing some work, but stayed clear of things that I'd react to. As well as I could. Got all the dogs tended to & cleaned out my black holding tank! Whew, that really needed to be done. It's one of those tasks that's easier to put off then to address ;-)

So all work is done, it's noon & the skies broke loose. I'm glad they waited till I got my chores done.
I'm alone this weekend, so will enjoy that time off. Need to mess around inside of the RV, clean it & put stuff away.

But first things first, a nap may be in order! Plus I went to the library yesterday & got 6 movies to watch over the weekend. That probably was way too many movies, but I have them for awhile before I have to return them, so maybe some will be viewed next weekend as well.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Fingers crossed that HR figures out you are perfect for the job. Being self-employed is tough during interviews and often when applying for social security. People don't realize that if they have claimed losses for years then they haven't paid into SSA and don't qualify for any. Enjoy your movies.

  2. Good luck with HR. Enjoy your weekend movies.

  3. Good luck! hope you land the job.
