Got a phone call this afternoon and I have an interview tomorrow at 12:30pm!! Yippee!!!
This stay at home mom stuff isn't all it is cracked up to be...i do more "running mom" than anything!! Anyway, the interview is for a good company that has been around for a long time. It is an HR position...so I am keeping my fingers crossed. It is in the same town that I was working in so it will still be about a 30 minute drive...not bad though!
Well as of 1pm today I officially became one of the manymanyunemployed.....I am pissed, i have cried, i have cried some more...now i guess i need to put on my big girl pants and dig in! What is really frustrating though? When you get laid off from the STAFFING industry...you tend to be discouraged in job hunting before you even begin...since you know better than anyone...there are few jobs to be had right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As if Facebook isn't addicting enough...i being the nosey person that I am...I have to go searching for something else that is addicting. People already warned me...but I just had to go see for myself...and now I have yet another addiction.....FARKLE!!! Have you tried it? However will I fit school, work, Facebook, Pogo. dinner, kids, boyfriend....and now FARKLE into one day? I am tired just thinking about it. I think I will go Farkle and stew on it for awhile!
I picked up this meme over at I KNOW, RIGHT?!, Kimber's blog, she's one of my best friends, who i never talk to anymore..*cough* *cough*, you should check her out!! It's a 20 question meme and since I have nothing better to blog about....this will have to do!!!

I am totally loving my life right now. I have an awesome family, a great boyfriend and a sweet house! Life for me has not been this great for a long long time! Work is good, getting busy, home is wonderful, school is going just fine. My kids are healthy...my 14 year old could outgrow this funk she is in any minute now...but she will come around.
I guess I just wanted everyone to know that I am loving life! Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
I was taking a bath last night, which when i do so I am ALWAYS accompanied by my 9 year old daughter. Ever since she was a baby she has sat in the bathroom with me while I take a bath....not sure why...but anyway...I was sitting in the tub washing and talking when all of the sudden she says,"why do you have VINES there?" (pointing at my chest). I look down and I am like, "What? Vines?, I don't have any Vines on me." She points again and says. "right there, those blue things, vines...." I said, "do you mean VEINS?" , she said, "yea, whatever those are called." I am like, "you are going into 4th grade and you thought all this time that those things are caleed VINES?"
I was shocked!! lol This is my child that is, or so I thought, a little more advances than most 9 year olds! Too funny!
Last night I was putting some things away in the dining room and kept hearing, "sex blah blah blah sex blah blah blah sex...i started counting, in about a minute in a half conversation on TV I counted the word Sex about 11 times. I walked in to see what my 9 year old was watching....The Secret Life of an American Teenager....I said what in the world, can they say SEX anymore? What is the deal? I don't know much about this show, it looked like a decent show, looked ok for kids...but can we promote SEX anymore? I am going to have to to some You Tubing of the past episode I think!!! Does anyone watch this show? I am going to watch it next Monday jsut so I can count from the beginning how many times they say SEX!!!
I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls. I live in Zanesville, where I was born and raised. My daughters are 13 and 9! Time sure does fly.I am a staffing specialist at Mancan in Newark, Ohio. I haven't done things exactly right in my life and have alot of regrets for things I have done wrong, but I am learning from my mistakes and trying to be the best mother I can be to my daughters.Family is important to me. Without the love and support from my mom and dad I don't know where I would be. I thank God everyday for my girls and my parents.
