I'm happy I went to the classic car show this past Sunday!
I'm happy someone I had just barely met was nice enough to buy me an ice cream sandwich at the car show!
I'm happy I got a hair cut yesterday!
I'm happy I've gotten to petsit my mom's bird and fish all week! The fish isn't so exciting but the bird is always fun.
I'm happy I had a phone interview this week!
I'm happy I ran into an old friend yesterday!
I'm happy I found a new volunteer opportunity!
The phone interview went well up until I was asked what qualities a teller should have. My mind went completely blank and alls I could think of was attention to detail. Seriously, that's all! I got a little annoyed that the interviewer lady kept asking me, "What else, what else?" and I had nothing else to say. Of course, as soon as we hung up, I thought, "Helpful, friendly, accurate, assertive but not pushy, knowledgable," but the interview was over by then. I really thought about calling back but decided my time was up and I'd done all I could. If I hear back from them, great! And if not, well...I won't be surprised.
This has been an interesting week with friends! Years ago I worked with a girl and she moved to Germany with her husband. (He's in the military.) Since then, we've kept in touch on and off through the years. She's living in Guam now and I hadn't heard from her in awhile so I was checking her facebook page. I found out through a posting that her daughter was hit by a drunk driver and her best friend was killed and the friend's husband is in ICU. He just came out of a coma this week and is making remarkable progress. Her daughter had 18 staples in her head, a fractured skull, over 100 stitches in her right arm, a shattered ankle, fractured ribs and numerous bruises all over her body. After seeing pictures of the car, it's a miracle any of them survived!
Yesterday, I started volunteering. I'm bored sitting at home all day every day and this will get me out and about. I had hoped that maybe I might make some job contacts when I initially thought about volunteering but this particular job isn't gonna do it. But it might look good on a job application! The company that I used to go to for the job assistance (that really didn't provide any assistance at all) hands out free food once a week to the poor and the homeless. I've never had to use this particular service but I'm aware I'm only weeks away from needing it. I'll be helping to set up, hand out food and tear down/clean up every week. So far, it's actually quite fun! I was surprised at how grateful and polite people were. And friendly too! This will be a once a week activity and I'm actually really looking forward to going again next week.
Which brings me back to another friend! I was shocked to see my very best friend from high school there! I think she was just as shocked to see me too. We'd lost touch so I didn't realize her life hadn't turned out so well. We didn't get to talk for long because it would've held up the line. I think she was a little embarassed to have me see her there picking up food. I didn't tell her that I might be in line right behind her very soon. It was so good to see her again. The last time we talked, she seemed so different from the girl I knew. And yesterday, I found that girl again; I just wish I found her in different circumstances.
Fiesty Three made a pretty cool badge yesterday. I keep meaning to add it and Molly's and Shelby's badges to my sidebar but so far I just haven't seem to have gotten around to it. I have no excuse other than pure laziness.
Which brings me to this week's Blog of the Week! I've mentioned Skeletor before. I've followed him from the beginning and have truly fallen in love with this sweet dog! If you've kept up with his story, you know he isn't doing so well right now. In an effort to bring more awareness to his situation, Wesley has created a new webpage dedicated solely to Skelly.We have had so much sad news in the DWB community lately. We are furry sad about Bear Bear and Dr. Dre. We are also furry worried about our furiend Phantom. We asked Moms, if she could help us do something about it. She suggested that we start a DWB prayer chain for all of our furiends. So, please join us in the Paws of Prayer circle by posting to your bloggies!
It's a work in progress right now but in the future, he hopes it will be another way to help spread the word about him and his condition.
Just a short one this week because I've blathered on way too long already.
