Random Ramblings...

So finally got around to getting a quote from USAA and they will save us $500 annually - WOW. Guess I better make the switch soon. I hate to ditch my State Farm Agent who has been so great but seriously that is a lot of money to waste. I know it will be even more once I switch my homeowners too which I definitely will do.

Just more things that I have to take care of when I'm already stretched thin, but onward and upward.

Oh and speaking of stretched thin - I do wish that was the truth physically, if the result of all this stress was me looking thin I'd be happier I think. Instead it actually makes me fatter as I just can't think about dieting right now it might send me off the deep end.

I should be working already and I have been a bit but mostly I'm procrastinating. That has to stop. Must be on the road and selling in 40 minutes.

I applied for a job that I really want. Close to home, great salary, state benefits, retirement plan, etc. If I get it the husband has agreed we can stay here in NY indefinitely and build our new home much closer to the VA Hospital but still within an hour of my family. That is huge. The deadline for applications was Monday - so hoping I get a call or an email to schedule an interview before the week is out. I really, really, really want this job. It uses my experience and my education, I would be perfect for it really. If I don't get an interview I will think this process was rigged. So for now I'm gearing myself up to WOW when I get the interview.

I got my pool opened - now if only the water was warmer than 60 degrees and it would stop raining non-stop. Hoping to swim by memorial day - PRAYING really. :)

And that is the end of my rambling this AM - no more procrastinating - time to hit the road.

Hi Tricia,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I hope youget the job.

Sorry about my lack of visits.
Spike's, our dog, illness in nov, quick death in dec and being so ill jan/feb to march meant no visits
Since then I have been spending more time sitting in my wheelchair I have also not been visiting.

I just passed by to say hello.
I hope you are doing well.
