Okay, I know that we tend to grumble about threads getting a bit on the grungy side, but maybe we shouldn’t try quite so hard to keep them clean. wink

Anyhow, hope everyone’s doing well. I’ve been trying to keep busy, but not had much luck in the way of landing editing jobs. So I’m taking temp jobs for now, and maybe I’ll end up with something permanent.

Speaking of which, normal job hours mean that I can’t stay up as late as I normally do ( :( ), so I’m off to get some sleep. G’night, folks!

You know, creating all these new threads all the time is really getting my OCD going. I haven’t finished with the old one yet!

Has anyone else noticed something odd with the thread page number coding?

Yep, I’m seeing that too. Wonder why it’s there?

Just lucky?

So here I am for another shift.  One day closer to retirement.  Good thing I have lots of patience because that isn’t for a few years yet.  lol   At least it’s not raining outside right now.  I’ve definitely had enough of that for the year.  I can never remember getting this much rain each summer when I was a kid.

So, I mentioned earlier that I’ve been doing temp jobs for a little while. At the end of June, I started at the central office for a company that operates group homes and assisted living places for special needs people (primarily adults, I believe). Today I found out that they’re planning on doing interviews for the position the week after next. My boss had pulled out resumes for the four people she wants to interview, and asked me to send applications to them (they’d sent their resumes after seeing our ad online, and so they still need to do the application so that there are references available for the hiring committee to check). Turns out I only need to mail three of the applications, because my resume was one of the four she’d pulled out! :D I asked her, tongue in cheek, if she wanted me to mail one to myself. She laughed and said no, I didn’t need to mail mine. LOL

Don’t know if they’ll hire me, but I’m very pleased that they picked my resume out of all the ones that came in. Especially since I didn’t send it in—it was there because the temp agency sent it to see if they wanted me as a temp. smile

Thanks! smile

Also, they are not, yet—I haven’t had the money to buy the yarn. Hopefully that will be changing soon, though!

Part of the deal is paying costs. I have no problem doing that on the front end. Let me know how much you need (try to include a shipping cost) and where to send it and I’ll get it to you. You know how to get a hold of me. smile

gulp I think I must be too nice or something. It never occurred to me to ask anyone for the yarn costs up front! LOL I will probably do some shopping around for materials this weekend and get back to you. smile

Awesome news re the temp position, Crafty - hopefully they’ll think you’re the best candidate and make you permanent! smile
