Amber, it looks like you've had a full plate lately with job interviews, and it sounds promising! Go you! Happy for you that doors are opening and it sounds really exciting.

I'm confident that the PERFECT position will be rewarded to you, just the right job, just the right time.

Hope this week brings good things your way.

Ughgh thanks girls for the well wishes, now I have the worst sore throat ever it started last night like razors in my throat, and guess what? I can barely talk, LOL I said to Tony you love this don't you? LOL He is like man it is quiet, I am sucking cough drops and drinking but it hurts to swallow, I have to go get drained this morning, maybe my PS can look at my throat, not sure what he knows about that but I figure he's a doctor, LOL I dont have fever but I am totally tired last night I was asleep on the couch at like 8:30 and I seldom do that. I didnt get to the gym yesterday and now this today uhghghg. I might have to cancel the interview tomorrow if my voice doesnt come back!

Get your kefir out and gargle it then swallow....several times a day.... it may sooth the throat and give you some extra prebiotics.... worth a try... (might even mix a little local honey in it.....)

Or better yet gargle some Kombucha

You may have had just too much sun & pool water the past few days... not to mention 3 hours of talking

Feel better

Morning Amber!!!

3 hour interview!!! WOW.... that sounds like it went really well. You give the other candidates something to work towards. But liking you soon to be boss is GREAT!!! Still praying you get it.

Bummer on the sore throat.... I don't have much of a voice either.... Bourbon St., Loud singing with a live band.... Guess that will do it! HA! Gargle some warm salt water... That always removes the soreness out of my throat.

Have a good day! Hope you feel better so you won't have to cancel.

My DH would love me to be like that with the floors but I just clean enough so that he doesn't call up and put me on "Hoarders."

The job interview sounds promising. Hope you feel better!!

Oh, sweetie! Sorry ou are sick. Thankfully it was after the interview tough.

Get some rest.

LOL on the maple whirlies! We got those everywhere! Many maples here. Just pulled a bunch out of the pool. Gave up years ago on the floor worrying....would finish mopping just to have one of the guys walk across it in barn boots! Yikes! I let DH pitch those fits now.....and he does! LOL life is too short!

Laura- did you see the Hoarders show the couple living in pure squalor with the trash up to the windows? WTH???????? I cant watch it is too disturbing!!!

I did not get the job they called the recruiter and said they thought I had a great personality but really want someone with more sales management skills, whatever so back to the drawing board, ughghg, I am starting to get depressed, all I can see is me on road kill patrol or porta potty disposal, its starting to get to me now, like I thought in a month I would have several interviews and maybe a pick of some jobs, ughghg

You were not posed to work there....
There is another one somewhere & you will be happy there.
Remember $ does not =
Hang in there and get yourself well...
Draw your unemployment & have fun for the summer as planed

Hi Amber,

Well, at least you got the news sooner vs. later -- sorry it wasn't the results you wanted, but keep your chin up and press on. Something great will come your way! Keep looking but I agree with many on this thread: enjoy your summer as best you can because lots of new jobs don't let you take vacay for a while.....!!
Check out Job Search | one search. all jobs. Indeed.com, it is a compilation of a lot of job search sites......

Hugs,
Nancy

WELL ITS THEIR BIG FAT LOSS!!! The market is slow so don't get depressed so soon. It takes time to find the right job. If u don't keep your spirits up it will be hard to get out of the bad mood. Right now you have so much to be thankful for. You can make all your bills, eat, gas, electirc...Just focus on the good stuff as much as you can. BIG HUG!!
