Pay check

I was going to start this blog with a photo taken over the summer of Pooka riding a pony but it's not working. Oh well. I miss her a lot. Looking at the photos her father emailed me made me miss her even more. She is scheduled to return the weekend of 8/21.

Today was interesting. I spent my morning with a cardiac rehab PT, shadowed another acute care PT for about 2 hours, then went to one of the group homes I interviewed for to see if I'd like the environment. "Work" went okay. The group home was VERY nice. After you interview with the HR folks they schedule you to go to the home for about a half hour to meet some of the staff and residents. After your home visit to make sure your still interested you have to call HR and let them know you are still interested. Again, the group home I went to was VERY nice. Much nicer than my old weekend gig. Immediately after walking out I called and left a message on the main HR persons voicemail letting her know I was still interested. So I guess I can say I am employed again. Yay! I think the next step is scheduling me for all the training courses I need to take. They sound like all the same type courses I took for the old weekend job so I am going to ask if I can test out of them and go ahead and get started with getting to know the residents.

On my birthday weekend I went to dinner at this nice spot down the road from my home. It's kinda pricey but they play live music so it was nice. I plan to again this weekend to hear a reggae band. Nothing is confirmed. Lately I've been making plans and changing my mind at the last minute. LOL!

Kinda glad a pay check will be rolling in again. I need to buy tix to see Frankie Beverly, Earth Wind and Fire, Jay-Z and Kayne, Stomp, maybe Wicked, and some Heat vs. Bobcats. I need a job to finance all this stuff! LOL! I already got my Jill Scott/Anthony Hamilton and my Sade tix so I am good in that department! Poor bank account! HAHAHAHA!

Hope it wasn't an albino pony. :oD

Congrats on the new job, I think. You did get it right? If so then congrats!

That Jay-Z/Kanye tour opens hear. I doubt I'll be going though.

Congrats on the new gig. Knowing that you'll have stable income just makes life sooo much easier.

I saw Jill a few years ago, and she was great. Definitely strongly considering Jay-Z and Kanye. I'm a huge Kanye fan, but Jay-Z... not as much.

Awww. Sorry you're missing your baby. I know I used to be like DANG!!!! I need a break and then when the kids were gone would obsess over them coming home because I missed them so much. Lol

Congrats on the job. That's always a blessing.

I would LOVE to see a live Reggae band!

Ok I'm jealous! Earth Wind and Fire....awesome!!! Then Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton and Sade???? I would almost KILL for those tickets. Lol
