One More Wed to GO

I have to thank Diama Chocolate Cherried Creations for the tag above.  I love it and feel a bit like a pirate.  LOL...wish I looked like that one.

I spent a good bit of the day trying to get the last leg of the basement cleaning done.  What a chore that has become.  One more Wednesday to go.  I might as well work because most times I don't feel like doing anything on Wed anyway.  The 10 hr days were beginning to wear on me.  It may be nice to get home 1 1/2 hrs. earlier.  The day should seem to go by faster.  Ok...I'll fuss a bit more about this because I like to fuss.

Great news though....I already cleared it with my new boss to take off June 20 & 21 to travel to Ohio and attend the Christian band festival with my wonderful J-Land friend, Penny Penny`s Place so I'm super excited about that.

My shadowing went well with Rose.  I do believe we will work very well together.  We always did.  I will be doing the Voc Rehab work for vets in foreign countries, of which there are many.  I already do this in my division now.  This is totally new in Voc Rehab so they seem thrilled to have someone who knows foreign zones and addresses.

Joey had another interview today with the supervisor of the cable installation.  Of course, he thinks he totally blew it.  He called it the train wreck of interviews but then he did mention that they were talking about motorcycles and the fact that I won't permit him to buy one as long as he lives in this house.  I'm just terrified to have a kid riding a "bike."  So, it may just be his perception of things.  Now, I'm praying big time.  He should know next week after all the interviews are done.

Megan's thyroid is great again (a slight increase in Synthroid), and the best news is that her osteoporosis has corrected itself with calcium and the gluten free diet.  The young just seem to heal so well.

Speaking of diets...whooo...I need one.  I weighed myself Saturday on OT and about died.  I've packed on 8 lbs in the past couple of months.  Yikes...none of my summer stuff is gonna fit me.  I'm back to packing salads for lunch again.

American Idol...Taylor or Kat?  I think this one could be an upset.  Nothing would surprise me anymore with Season 5.

And now some equal time for the kitty of the house, Mocha.  Her newest perch is on top of my new tv....grrrr  She's also been lounging on top of my computer monitor.  Not sure why her eyes are green and glowing.

           

           

Have a great evening everyone.  Time to get my lunch ready so I can watch the AI finals.

Glad about your new job.  I agree with you on the motorcycles...but I still like 'em!  Glad Megan is good.  Wishing Joey luck.  Interviews are so nerve wracking!  I need to get back on a diet, too.  Always a battle!
Gotta watch AI tonight, too!  I'm rooting for Taylor.  Just something about him!
Have a good night.....Pam

Yay on the job!  I have my share of road rash scars from a motorcycle, but they're still a lot of fun!

My husband was in a very serious motorcycle wreck last summer.i dont know if you knew me then. Motorcycles are dangerous, so much more than cars. I dont blame you for being worried. I wish i was going to be with you and Penny!
I am glad you have some leeway on the basement. I havent done a thing around here yet. Its storming terribly right now in Ohio. Glad things are going well at work too.
LOVE YOU, lisa

Have fun @ the festival with Penny. And what a pretty kitty kitty. I am a firm believer that we live with cats, not the other way around. So Mocha figures that is her tv & computer. LoL

American Idol was great. I liked all of the finalists for the most part so I was OK with whomever won.  But they all did great but I must say that Kathraine's (single) song she was given to sing was just the worst song. Really wasnt very fair to her I think. Anyhow glad you are getting along well at your new job!!!

Four wheels like a little pick up truck are just as fun as two.    Then he can get an off road bike and haul it in his pick up.    Motorcycles on the street can be dangerous as I know from experience.     This is fortunate that your background in foreign zones will assist in your new position.     mark
