Okay I’m mad!  I have been back to my college and working closely with a new Career Advisor (a life-time service for going to DeVry, lol.)  I have been to a number of Career Fairs, am active on all of the job portals out there – my resume is definitely in circulation.  I am beginning to wonder if age discrimination could be a factor.

There are supposedly a huge number of jobs out there in the fields in which I work,  but getting that sought-after interview; ah that is the challenge. The resume must be perfect and one must be on their best behavior.  Answer questions with no hesitation.  Appear very confident! Avoid going into details.  Don’t be ‘chatty.’

I have adhered to all of the rules; yet still I persist!

Stay tuned!

Valentine’s Day 2009

February 14, 2009

It’s nearing the close of another Valentine’s Day.  We woke up this morning and exchanged cards to each other, which is always fun!  Then we went to breakfast at Gomer’s, which is always fun!  After our run to Costco later getting back home felt incredibly good.

Lori’s getting unpacked & settled in to her new house – she closed Friday.  I can’t wait to see it – Mark & I are going over there tomorrow.

Well I’m a little bored at the moment so think I’ll work on another website for a while.  Til next time…stay tuned!

Here it is almost Christmas 2008 and I have another granddaughter to add to our family.  Her name is Zoe Marie and she’s a tiny girl ~ she looks like her daddy.  Jess says that the baby is very good, and Hailey is a big help to her.

I moved in with Mark in August this year, and we’re pretty happy.  :-)

‘Til next time, stay tuned!

Almost the end of Summer!

Just got back from taking Hailey home…   :-)    God I love that baby girl!    We had such fun and she’s talking a lot now; well not really talk, just babble lol.  But she does say several words now, including mom, dad, buddy (her dog’s name) and says no, yeah, wow, and getting closer to saying Grandma – she just about said it this morning!

Getting ready to do some major packing – I hate moving!   Need more boxes!  Damn I have to paint and clean both places!   Well I’ll have some help painting the new house I hope, not much to do at my old place other than touch-up and shampoo carpet.

Will have to get all of the utilities changed over this week too – yipes there’s so much to do I shouldn’t really even be on here!  Okay, by for now…stay tuned!

Who the hell is Ron Paul? I decided to look him up on Wikipedia, and here’s some of what I found out:

  • He is a candidate for the Republican nomination in our next presidential election in 2008
  • He is a 10th term Congressman from Lake Jackson, Texas
  • He’s a physician, and earned the nickname of “Dr. No”, because he votes against any bill that he feels violates the Constitution
  • Mr. Paul supports free trade, wants tighter border security, and gun ownership.
  • He opposes abortion, the income tax, the federal War on Drugs and the federal regulation of marriage.
  • Those are just some of the things that stuck out for me in reading the article. I’ll be reading more on him in the coming days – this article goes back to his upbringing, and relates his military experiences and life in politics. He sounds pretty interesting.

    More later…

    My eldest – a very fascinating and soulful young man who walks to the beat of his own drum. He found his soul mate in his wife of 5 years now…such a beautiful girl. More Later…
