I went for an Excellent job interview yesterday and I'm really excited about it! Now, I just wait and see what becomes of it... I'm really hoping I get the job, but I tend not to do well in face-to-face interviews. In the past, even interviews that I thought I had aced, didn't materialize into a job, so I'm trying not to get too excited, too soon. My new position would be as a bookkeeper for a student housing community at Radford University. I would be running applications for new tenants, handling all rent payments & collections of rent. It's a salary position and is only 3 miles from my house! The environment was really cool too. While I was waiting I delved into their photo album scrapbook it seems like it would be a really fun place to work. They have lots of functions in the clubhouse - radio station competitions and all sorts of things!  The work itself sounded like something I would really enjoy and they insisted that it's a very independent position and you must be able to work well on your own....  Right up my alley!  Please everyone, keep positive thoughts that this one will come to be!

Samantha and I have been hitting the pavement (well... driving from driveway to driveway) after her cheerleading practices all week, to sell that cookie dough. It's going really well - two more days to go and we only need to sell 17 more boxes. Her goal to bring her cheerleading fee's down to 0 was 44 boxes, so she has done really well! 

Yesterday Sami came home with more news. Her chorus class will be going to Disney in the spring. She is real excited about it, I am not. Well, I'm excited for her getting to go, but this means another 500.00 due and another batch of cookie dough to sell, already - so once we finish selling for the cheerleading, we'll begin for the trip! Yikes - neverending..... If I get that job, I'll be so much less worried about all this stuff.

I'm not working at the hotel anymore.

I'm here via the Rusty Nut.  I just wanted to say, having worked in HR ... the BEST thing you can do after an interview is send a thank you note.  A "thank you for your time" .... reiterate your strengths and number you can be reached at and "looking forward to hearing from you soon" note.  The people who send notes move to the top if they interviewed well.  I mean ... if three people interview, all equally qualified, the note sender will get the job.  just a thought.  :~)  Wendy

What to Mr. Hotel say?

Fingers crossed for you regarding the interview Chris! Yes, that would be right up your alley and if you work at a University your kids go for a reduced rate. I know Sam is only 14 but time goes fast.

 A trip to Disney! Good for her!
