Work~   Leave a comment

Tonight is night three of four in a row I will be working this week and then I have Saturday and Sunday off.

The work isn’t hard, not at all it is just staying awake that sometimes becomes difficult.

I applied for a job at the school again and I don’t know if I will get it or not.

It will be a salad maker at City High in Iowa City.

Easy enough to do as I have been cooking since I was 17 and know what I am doing.

It will be not quite 7 hours a day Monday through Friday and no weekends and no holidays and no summer work.

I would enjoy that immensely

IF I get hired.

I am not holding my breath, but time will tell.

And it will be $3.65  more an hour then what I make now……

I could even stay where I am and work every Friday and Saturday night for the nursing home…. and then pick up more time in the summer if I wanted to…..

Something to think about if I get hired……

I will have to cancel my vacation in May if they hire me.

Again not holding my breath……

Today’s thoughts~   Leave a comment

So it is that time of year again when all four of my children have birthday’s.

We had Matt’s almost two weeks ago and we will have Brian’s at the end of February and then both of our girls in March.

When we had Matt’s there never seems to be enough room in our living room for everyone to sit and visit.

We make the grandkids sit on the floor if an adult wants a recliner, a place on the couch or the desk chair.

Still it never seems to be enough.

So today I bought another couch.

My husband says it will take up a lot of room and yes it will take up one wall, but… is needed.

It looks relatively similar to our couch we have now.

Here is a picture of it

new couch

and while it wasn’t a necessity of life per say, it will be used and then everyone can be more comfortable when they come over.

I don’t know why~   Leave a comment

So for days I have been trying to get on this blog to write.

On my laptop.

It refuses to load.

I don’t know why.

So now I am in my den writing on my desk top computer.

It is strange that I get on the blog page here but couldn’t on my laptop.

Makes a person wonder……
