Anyway , spring will be upon us before you know it . This has been a mild winter in eastern PA , I guess about 4 in a row now . My temporary job is almost done . While I was glad to have it , god was it boring . Basically doing a inventory of frozen plasma samples , most in test tubes or small cylindrical bottles . And we did more than...

Just sitting here , waiting for the weather to start for real . We've had showers last night , but nothing to talk about . According to the animated maps , it's just south of us now . I already took off work , figured about the time I got there I'd just start worrying about coming back home . Not really worried about much other than wind damage , or...

So , I will probably hear about some kind of job this week . I should be hearing from the folks I did a interview with . In the meantime , I probably have a temp job lined up . It'll just be for a couple months & with no benefits . But it will help me pad the time between unemployment running out , so it's good .

Southern Tier! I've heard they have a vanilla stout that tastes like dessert in a glass. Creme Brulee? I'll have to check...

A good brew pub is a wonderful thing. We had a really good one about 20 minutes north of us but the quality of their home made beers has fallen off in the last couple years.

Yep , it's one big roller coaster here . Up , down , get thrown off the tracks & burn .
I've been unemployed for a week . Just didn't feel much like posting it cause it's such a downer . Except for some reason I've felt very "up" since it happened . I did like the actual job , but hated several things about it . It was probably the...

I felt the same way when I was let go from my last job. I liked the work but the office management was horrible and I was actually relieved and happy when they gave my notice. Hope you find another job quickly.

So much for positive posts . This one will be a bit of a downer . A bit .
So , new car right ? Very happy & excited , right ? Haven't even made a payment on it and a guy swipes the back of it with a dump truck . Pretty much knocks the bumper off & dents the trunk . However , no one is hurt & his insurance is paying for everything ( as...

Christ , that was a long time between posts . Let's get more positive , eh ? Good thing #1 , I got a new phone . I had a Palm Pre Plus & by the time I got rid of it I was ready to throw it through a wall . It was ok as far as function went , but it would run out of power within 8 hours , sometimes less , for no good reason . And the screen was messed up by the end because I didn't care anymore . Now I have a Android Bionic & am loving it . And to top it off , I found out yesterday I get a 25% employee discount through Verizon for working @ the Red Cross .
Good ( and even better ) thing #2 . I got a new car ! It's a Kia Rio sedan & I am in total love with it . It doesn't look or feel like a cheap piece of crap in any way shape or form . It;s got heated , folding side mirrors ! It's got a back up camera !!! Seriously , I think Kia has some of the best looking cars going today . And I have the 10 year 100k warranty too , which I...

I've heard good things about KIAs and you really can't beat that warrenty. My last two cars wound up having all sorts of stupid problems right after the 60K warrenty was up.

Been a long time since I posted , so here goes . First things first . We had to say good bye to our big Newfy Strider yesterday . He was 12 , which is beyond their normal life span . He had a good , long life full of fun & games . But the had gotten to the point that he couldn't get up off the floor without help . He basically...

So sorry about your reason tribulations. Hope November is kinder to you than October.

Take care!

cybele:

Oops! That was supposed to say "recent" tribulations. Not sure where my brain has been today.

Anyway...the same sentiment applies. Hang in there!

Thanks to all for your well wishes / advice . I had the meeting with the credit counselor & my lawyer and it went well . He says now I just wait 6 weeks & if no one contends it it's all over . He doesn't think anyone will . While waiting for my meeting , I got to stop in at a local brewpub in downtown Lancaster called Springhouse Brewing...

Yep , bankruptcy . My lawyer filed for me this week . He says that if no one contests it , that it should only take about 4 hours of my life . And looking at my situation , he doesn't expect anyone to fight it . I am now the proud owner of a 07 Hyundai Accent . It's my moms old car . She gave it to me then bought...

for the spasm: try a TENS unit
or (and I know this sounds weird) a cold pack over your appendix area (a chiropractor had me do that once and it was like hitting an off switch!)

I hope things improve. Wishing you well kiss
