So I got the job



Woo hoo...I'll start later this week...no pay for three weeks but I can hang on a bit longer.
Thanks for all the good vibeage from all you good peeps.

The funny thing, the day I interviewed for this job (first interview after MONTHS of sending out resumes and filling out applications) a friend called and wanted me to take this other position she had to turn down. She was recommending me for the executive chef position. Wish I could send you a link to this place but for security's sake I can't.

It's an awesome restaurant in a beautiful historic building, but it would mean 6-day weeks of 12+ hour days and I was groaning just thinking about it. Then I found out the place is over 50 miles away so I had to reluctantly turn down that awesome opportunity. Now I will be working a temporary job with nice little nursery plants and shrubs that don't complain or talk back lol

But it feels so nice to feel wanted, doesn't it?

Good mojo forward to all who are seeking new or better employment

6. Thanks magical thyme!



I am also going to do a FAFSA and get back in school for something. It's time to challenge myself a bit.

But this gig is a nice steady little something to keep the wolves at bay until I sell a screenplay or write that hit song

Thanks for your good wishes!

7. "Follow the geranium..." she says with her best zombie voice



This is a family joke.

As we walked across the parking lot to go shopping one day, I asked my youngest to keep me OUT of the garden center at the big box store.

But then I saw the table of marked down geraniums. I started heading for them like they were brains.

"Mom! Mom! You said not to let you go in there!"

"I know. I just want one little geranium. Just one..."

"Well, okay.. but just ONE."

I get two, and my son grabs one of them and holds it in front of my face and says "Follow the geranium...follow the geranium." All through the store.

Whenever I get distracted now, that's what he says.

I love being around plants any time, but especially in spring.

10. I can totally relate!

I'm not sure if you are male or female, but remember this: Only boring women have totally clean houses!

9. Congratulations!!!



Is this a commercial nursery, like for landscaping services, or a retail one? Just trying to gauge the size of the operation

I just got a call-back from a recruiter working on getting me employed, too. I now have an interview (for a pipeline mapping position) on Thursday morning at a much higher rate than I'm used to, as well

I think I will really enjoy it. I'll be doing a lot of different tasks, outdoors, indoors, and not chained to a stove or a desk. Plus I'll be near plants all spring and in garden centers when all the good stuff rolls in. I'll have to be careful not to sepnd all my pay on plants.

I started officially this week and I think I will really like this employment. Met another person I will be working with sometimes, and she is really cool. Mostly I will be working independently after training, and I love that aspect of the job.

A good Sunday and week to you!
