    The best part of the day was that we finished hauling out of storage and unpacking all the Christmas decorations for the kids, today was the final day of that work. Only 3 weeks until it can all be put back into boxes again, and the living room can be reclaimed.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    Yesterday my calabash brothers arrived from the mainland for a visit. They both have a phenomenol eye for decorating and my Christmas present is their services for 4 days pulling my town condo together! Oh Lordy, did we ever have fun!

    And, congrats, Auntie...way to go!

    I received Bad News.

    I was supposed to start tomorrow. But according to the HR Person, the company's President came yesterday and froze all hires due to economic crisis.

    So I'm back seeking employment.

    Aww, bummer Auntie. Stupid economic crisis - how the heck is the economy going to get any better if jobs are so hard to get?!

    Best part of today is that I got confirmation for this 3 day temp job at Hilton Waikoloa! Yay!! I hope they don't decide to have a hiring freeze too.

    Good luck to both of you! Bummer Aunie about your news. I'll keep you
    in my thoughts and prayers for a job, who better than you deserves
    one and great treatment for all you do for others.

    TG, I'll think positively for you too, what would you be doing for only
    3 days? Hopefully it includes housing since you live here on our side
    and Waikoloa is not on our island. Good luck!

    I can't tell much about this job yet, gotta see how it goes first, but if it goes well, I probably won't be able to stop talking about it for weeks!

    Hey, Auntie, here's an excerpt of a poem for you...

    "...A military mother has special grace
    And a sense of patriotic love.
    You can see it in all she does
    As she relies on God above.

    If you, too, are a military mom
    Then let character be your guide.
    Dignity and honor, pride and strength Ė
    Itís not a time for faith to hide.

    Display your trust in God alone
    For He is the One in command!
    Rest assured He knows your need -
    He holds your child in His hand."

    ©Lucy Cain 2007

    I can't post the whole poem, it makes me cry , ehm, get an eyelash in my eye.

    ((((hugs))))

    talking myself out of slapping the $h!t out of some of the people i work with. one of those days - you sit back relax and ask yourself if it is really possible to b!t$%^ slap the sense out of someone - if there is anything there? i mean is empty in there? are you that dumb? are you that self centered that you cannot absolutely see the ego and power trip?

    ---- so that was the best part of my day - talking myself out of slapping the _____ and the _______ ________; _________ idiot with the likes of my boss just idiots just _______ idiots

    stay forever young

    Awww, crap. We've got a hiring freeze here for all Washington State positions, and I got lucky; they hired me just under the wire. Now, let's hope they don't talk layoffs, since I was the last hired (but the State is looking at upwards of 20% budget cuts in almost every division!)

    Went to two interviews. Got hired for both.

    One is a New Sports Bar as a PuPu Cook. I start Sunday. So lemme know what kinds of pupus you always wanted to have in bars. What kind of Soups, Food, etc. This bar is not a Yobo Bar. It will cater to the old Local Style Way. Hawaiian Music on Weekends. And my Pupus!

    The other is a Local diner!

    God is Great!

    YEAH! Those other jobs weren't the best matches for you - but doing food again? That's what you should be doing! This is wonderful news, Lynn.

    Was sitting on the bus from Waikiki today and suddenly recognized a face - it was "Pupule Lucie"! What a nice surprise - only wish I had been able to talk to her more. and I hope she has recovered from her shock when a complete stranger looked at her at said "excuse me, are you Lucie?"

    It was a nice surprise for me and I hope for her also.

    The best part of today was... I got carded!!!
    If the legal drinking age is 21, then I've been legal for 36 years already. But I was thirsty and stopped in a 7-11 store, and although I don't drink alcohol that often, I decided to try one of those small bottles of pre-mixed Pina Coladas, and the sales clerk carded me.
    I told her she's on my Christmas list now.
    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Well, she probably carded you because you look so much like your avatar.
