I wanted pink they were out of them, so I had to get blue, LOL I was bummed I like pink!!!

I had to remember to take my diamond off that is what I was most worried about, he kept telling me to punch harder I was like OMG my arm is about to fall off, seriously I can hardly lift my arm! There was a guy making a video so if they post it I will have it for you, LOL

So the State Farm lady called me she wants me to go in for an interview and take a personality test on Thursday, I liked her at the job fair yesterday, maybe a few years older than me, one son, ailing parent, very nice lady I liked right away, so if she likes me again, I order the manuals to take the test and when I pass she reimburses the cost of the books and the exam then I go to work. So fair deal to me I think, it is close by which is nice. Working til 5 sucks I liked my 7:30-3:30 but I will live!!No Saturdays one night you work til 8:00 that is not too bad!

You are great on test taking so no problem there. Something close to home is good.

Sorry they were out of pink gloves.

I reckon that gym sounds like a perfect fit for you. Sounds like a honey badger gym hehe. The workouts sound killer tough! Yikes, no wonder people were puking. Bonus they have the yoga! My arse will totally be tight and tiny come summers end!

Oh interesting about the job fair lady. Good luck! Sounds like a fair deal, as long as you are interested in that field.

Kitty- LOL I love that, I showed Robert the gloves he was like OMG I am really scared, LOL The one boy on his team his Mom has 6 kids and no husband is ever around she and I were talking last night, he is an engineer and after 6 kids told her he wanted to cross dress for her and they split, I was like no matter how bad you have it someone has it tons worse! Good grief already!!!

So they lost 2-1, Robert was bummed, watched 2 shows last night, the man with the 12 pound tumor on his face and the man in Vietnam with a 200 pound tumor, these surgery shows are fascinating to me, and it keeps bringing me back to what I really want to do is be a freaking nurse! I might look into it but I am sure I need so much more college stuff and heck I graduated over 20 years ago I doubt those credit will work, ughg it sort of sucks trying to figure out what to do, insurance sounds boring but at least you get to be with people that is good.

So going to the MMA Maxout today this is the bootcamp style workout, did the BAG yesterday, their weekend schedule is sort of light I guess they thought hey I dont want to work weekends? Sort of crazy when that is when most people want to do stuff, they say that Yoga is coming, so far I really like it, the guys are ex fighters totally ripped so not bad eye candy as you are dying, LOL But they are very motivating too, so that is good the team effort is there, like everyone feels the pain so you keep each other going.

Sounds like you found your nitch at this gym! I really liked the cartoon...thought to myself...Yep! Thats Amber for you!

Gems come out of very strange places. Maybe this insurance position will be what you need...

I NEVER PASS those personality tests... guess I am too independent and must NOT be a team player... never landed a job where I took one...even WalMart has one in their online applications so just for fun I have applied several times and NEVER got a call for an interview...same thing at Lowes! BTW have not been to Lowes for 3 weeks-feels strange....

Amber, go back to nursing school! That is where I work - in a nursing school at a medical center and there are women and men starting every day that are your age and some much older than you and it would be so totally worth it!!!! Do it!!!! You would make an excellent nurse and we need them so bad!!!!!!

Took the test for WM years ago....failed! LOL I was too truthful on it! Should have pretended more! LOL

Nurse....might be good for you. We have a tech school that teaches this. There is a waiting list to get in....if you may want to pursue it, check it out now in case you have a waiting list too.

The hospital here has a college of nursing and they even pay you to work I think while you are going like cleaning the potties and the gross stuff, but funny puke is gross but poop and stuff I can handle, I love surgery stuff for sure! I think you have to pay the tuition though, and the training money would be lots less, but I am going to check it out!

So had the maxxout workout, holy moly only 3 of us so it was unrelenting there was no slacking, honestly if this doesn't work it off me nothing will I cant eat any less than I am. I am sort of sweet on the teacher from yesterday and today-- young boy all tattooed up, but he was diabetic so he got into exercise to control it, very ripped and muscly and he is so nice!!! Really like him everyone is so nice, Autumn was there watching and he even had her bark orders at us, to make her feel included. I am loving this place!!!

It's never too late to go back to school. When I graduated from college there was a woman sitting next to me who was in her 60s. She told me she started college, had kids, her husband died and she just never found the time to go back. But eventually she did and she graduated with my class and all her grandkids were there cheering her on.

If you really want to be a nurse, go for it! You would be awesome.

Go back to school mama if that's what you want. Never too late to go back and I am LOVING school right now! Check into financial aid you might qualify for a grant to go to school for free.

Glad you enjoyed the workout, sounds fun!!

I would think being unemployed would give all sorts of advantages for re-training. This would definitely be the time to look into it while you are on un-employment.

Your classes are awesome. Glad you have the time to enjoy them right now.

Had a great taco salad at a local restaurant last night. It was great to get out, but a lot of work to get around. At least I can slowly get from one place to another. The hardest part is leveraging myself up out of a chair.

Hugs to ALL

The workouts continue to sound great. Eye candy at the gym - bonus. Can I come and sit and watch them and eat bacon on the sidelines? I'm allergic to puke jk. I am with you amber, poop and blood and whatever no problems, but vomit - oh hell to the no. Can't do it.

I'm with the other girls, if nursing is something you really want, go investigate options etc. You'd be a good "anything" you put your mind to!

If there were ever a time to think about changing careers it is now! Nursing is awesome! If you get your degree in nursing you will NEVER be without a job. Seriously! There is a nursing shortage that is just expected to get bigger and bigger. I was on a waiting list for at least two years to get into nursing school to be an RN. It actually took me that long to get all my prerequisites done . I had to do a lot of math and some English to get caught up to college level plus the nursing stuff, I took my time. They make pretty decent money and it is only a two year program once you are in. Of course I quit school when I got married and saddled my DH with about $20,000 in student loan debt . Almost 7 years later and we still have $2,500 left to pay on it. Pretty much all I brought to the marriage was a car, some furniture, and my student loan debt. I felt really weird about handing over my debt to my DH and only working part time for like three months when we were first married. Oops! I wandered..........

You should totally go and be a nurse in a plastic surgery office! You would be perfect! You could probably get your school paid for with a workforce retraining thing. I know of a person who is getting paid their unemployment and getting their school paid for at the same time, and they keep getting paid until they graduate and get a job in their new field. Totally worth looking into.
