To me this is one of the scariest words...

Once you have been burned a few times, this is very hard to do.

Someone looks at you and asks you to rely on them. Trust them...

Trust must be earned, the same way respect is.

I have a hard time trusting people. There comes a time though, when a person in your life wants you to trust them. They want to earn it....

To trust or not to trust...that is the question.

Odd and End thoughts

Wow life has been a bit crazy these past few weeks.

I haven't even been around to blog much. Wish life would even out a bit. Once I get a new job things should calm down. By all means I love the money overtime brings, but I love my time at hoem even more.

In about a year I am going to be in a wedding. I am really excited about it. She is one of my dearest friends. We were roomies when we were both young, poor and silly. We have remained friends over the years and now she is marrying a great guy. She really deserves this in her life. She has had so many ups and downs. I can't wait to stand beside her and just feel so glad that she is finally with a man that loves her and wants her to be happy.

After so long of not being married, getting back out there and dating really sucks.
Its all about getting to know and finding out the new. Wish we could all just write a little book of all of our qualities, faults, pet peeves etc. and then when you meet someone hand over the book let them take a look. If it doesn't sound good, just hand the book back and go on to the next guy.

BUT!!! I am really lucky, the guy I am dating is GREAT! Taking things slow and really trying to take the time to just enjoy the pleasure of dating. (Maybe that is why I have less time to blog....hmmmmm, something to think about!)

Wonders Will Never Cease

Things that make you go hummmmm.......

I was off on Wednesday and headed to an interview...and my bosses-boss called me and apologized for calling on my day off, but asked if I had a few minutes to talk.

She said that my name had been flying around the corporate office...and I thought OH SHIT!!!!

She went on to say that it was all good and that there were several people at the corporate office that asked her to call me and see if I might possibly be interested in a brand new complex that was coming available and needed a manager.

My mouth dropped open to say the a fairly new employee of the company I am not supposed to be eligible for a management position for well over a year.

She went on to say that I have been noticed at the corporate and that there were many people who thought very highly of me and wanted to skip me ahead because they think I would do well in the position.

So all of that to say...I have an informal interview with the corporate office on Tuesday for the position. I shall keep you all updated on how that one goes.

I am so glad to have internet back and be able to stay connected with the world!

Have a happy anyone planning a big Halloween bash? I am looking to go to one, but will probably have to I want to live vicariously through all my blog mates!

Dance puppet

Gone are the days when it was easy to get a job. Gone are the days when you write a simple resume, go in for an interview dressed in a nice suit and are hired based on your qualifications and work history.

Now it is a song and dance. Your resume has to have something to catch their eye because they only look at it for 2.2 nanoseconds. Then you have to include the all important cover letter.

Then you have to follow up three times.

After you get the granted interview, then comes deciding what to wear.

And at the interview, you must mirror their body language and voice inflection. Laugh at their stupid jokes and ask certain questions and remember key phrases that all hiring managers want to hear.

ITS ALL A BUNCH OF BUNK!!! Why can't things go back to the simple times.

So give me a day or two to catch back up with all of you!!!
