2008 Day One Hundred Seventy Seven

I haven't posted for a few days. After this weekend I was exhausted. I have finally come to the realization that I'm no longer as young as I thought I was.

Saturday, for the Northwest, it was hot and muggy. We do not get much humidity so I never realized how climatized I am, that I can longer take much humidity. Not that we did not have a good day, because we had a great day. We sold lots and I even made a pair of custom earrings for a gal who said she would pick them up on Sunday. (If you read further you will see what an act of fate this became to be) Anyway Sunday was much better weather and the day was wonderful. The market had a beer garden with BBQ and they also live music all through the day. There was a nice variety of vendors and we met some amazing people.

When I got home Sunday night I was so tired, that M took pity on me and took me out to the new mexican restaurant called 7 Mares (translates to the 7 seas) What an amazing dinner! We even had a 1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell and a shot of Patron. Both a no-no for me, but what the heck.

Back to work Monday came too soon. I was suppose to listen to a call on my quality monitoring that did not meet expectations because the woman said "you must be joking" and I said without thinking, "why would I be joking" I definitely need to get out of there. Monday night I sat up in bed and came to the realization I must call Dianne LaValley at Accountemps to find me a new job. In the past they have always done me right. So I called yesterday. She actually said, "what are you doing there?" She advised I could do much better at alot better pay. I made an appointment to see her yesterday afternoon and I was so surprised to see she was the same gal I made the customer earrings for! Is this a small world. I truly believe in fate! She is going to place me at a position that pays $3.00 to $4.00 an hour more money than what I'm making now. And NOT a call center!!

I took the day off today, because I just have not felt right the last few days. I have not been myself. I need a day to get my house in order. DK is on the bus heading for home. He just called and is in Portland and will hopefully be here by 6:00 tonight.

Well played, Linda!

I will do this meme as soon as I get the computer for longer than 10 minutes, lol. My grandson is here, and he's bugging me wanting me to get off my computer. I had to take my new laptop in for service today, so I don't have a spare.

I sure hope you are able to get that job making 3 or 4 dollars more on the hour than what you are making. That would really work out well, that is if you like the job.

Yes, small world about the lady wanting the custom earrings. How about that!!

I'll get on the meme as soon as possible. I really enjoyed reading your answers

Have a good night.

Sending you good thoughts about the new job and as always hoping good things for M and DK
