Didn't sleep well- to much on my mind! The mind doesn't sleep.
Guess I will be going to bed early.
Raining here too and the temps are only in the high 40's- COLD HERE!!!!!!
I a speechless beyond words over your interview. Do you really think it was age related? Maybe the manager was having a bad day? A lot of times you can tell a persons age by the resume.
I agree with TRIG- if it was age related I would be writing a letter to the company!!!!!
Not worth hiring a lawyer over it. But I certainly would be heard by someone hirer up the food chain.
Again I am shocked. It has been a minute since I have been at the store so I never looked at the age of the people working there.
I know that agism is alive and well. I think about that all the time- being out of work. I wonder how long I will be able to work, before I am replaced by someone half my age. I hear ya GF!!!!!
The good news is that you working looking for something to keep ya busy. I still think maybe the gym would be a great place to offer some time. We older people like to see people our age in great shape working out, and know the machines ect.........
That is why I was looking at a Planet Fitness because I did see TONS of people my age and older there. They were not there to impress, but to just get in shape and feel good. You are such a great example of that!!!! Have you thought about being being a gym couch? You are so motivating!!!!!!
Anyway you sure don't NEED B&N!!!!! Boo on them!
Hope you are feeling better. I hate it when I have tummy troubles!
TRIG- OMG AND OMG!!!!! What happened with your credit card? Any ideas where or who or how that happened? It happened to me about 5 years ago. The fraud dept WAS able to track it down to an outdoor gas pump. The reader had a device on it that steals your numbers. I was in a small town in SC, an hour later according to th eCredit card I was in Anaheim CA buying a large screen TV!!!! They caught it right away. But what a pain.
After that I NEVER use an outdoor gas pump, EVER. I go in for a POS at the register.
I also pay all my bills on line. I have one CC I use for Amazon and check it all the time.
WHAT a pain to go through all of that! The good news they caught it. I am not great with cash- plus all your bills are on line. The think is the big thing is here, people stealing checks out of the mail. I don't use checks- at all!
Sorry you are going through all that!
That is SO funny about the videos from L. Amber! My only defense is that studies have should that you need to hear something 3 times for it to sink in......... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH-
I expect to see a TRIG- you tube channel soon!!!!!
Enjoy your shopping out with your friend! You tow haven't been out for awhile! Family keep ya busy. Does she have kids too?
- Thinking about your family. I am hoping things are getting better with your IL's. Is your hubby back to work? I hope he too is feeling better. Nothing like dealing with all of that when you are struggling to feel better.
You are very sweet to pick up a few extra shifts. Yea I can't see you putting up with their requests long term. You are just so busy! You are like me- you jump dive in the deep end and start swimming!
Hope you are getting what you need!!!!!
I interrupt this post with the following announcement...........
Ummmmmm......... OMG- I am going to Santa Fe in 2 weeks. It looks like the Atlanta gig was taken, but they called me first thing this morning and interviewed. It went well and they ask how long will it take me to get there- ...ie.... how soon until we get you.
I am in a daze....... Happened so fast.
They also ask if I would extend past 13 weeks, I said I would be open to it. OMG- My stomach is on the floor. This is really happening! So fast. I thought I would have more time. OMG.
My mom's response- "you know there are scorpions out there"- My reply: there are copper heads in my back yard!!!!
The job- easy, discharge planning for a Presbyterian hospital 9-5. Easy peasy.
The official offer- jaw dropping. I will know by tomorrow morning if it truly is a go, if not before.
OMg- SO MUCH to do. I need to start packing up the house. I was not expecting this fast this soon. Welcome to the world of travel nursing. Travelers do this all the time.
I just needed the time to turn over the house and put my stuff in storage. I will need to come back mid Feb. and then get this completed, and then go back if I choose. Or I can come back and take something else a bit closer. All up to me.
Stunned. - And so it begins, my new journey!
