Default I Got A Job!

I am beginning to think being here was meant to be. Today I went on a job interview and got the job. I was immediately sent to the court house to be fingerprinted and have a background check. From there I was sent to occupational health for a tb stick and a drug screen and a physical. So for 2 more days my life is my own but after that I am again a working woman.

Laura

Way to go Laura! Now that Ray's back, I'm sure he'll be organizing the next Florida CruiseMates dinner soon as a celebration of your new home and job!

Dean, I will be working with the developmentally disabled at a group home. It is work I love to do. Before I moved I googled agencies for this type of work in this area. I had sent my resume out. I got a reply from the area director here asking me to contact her when I arrived in Lakeland.

Congratulations Laura. Awesome news. I am so happy that you are on your way to making new memories in Florida.

Hope my son's interview yesterday leads him to a new job.

Ms Black Jack..........The rumor that people who work in Human Services are notoriously underpaid is true!!! We really do this work for the love of it.

Sharon, I was so hoping that you and Larry would be making the Liberty cruise in Sept. If you do make it to FL be sure to be in touch. Perhaps another group from these websites we can make together.

Kuki and all the rest thank you so much for the great comments. I do hope I get to meet each and every one of you, either on a cruise or at a dinner.

Laura

Great news, Laura! Now Miss Lilly can eat ! (Oh, and you, too!)

I know you'll be a great asset to the group home.

Maybe we can meet next time we're in Ft. Lauderdale ,
