after 9 months of want ads, temp assignments, and countsless resumes sent out………….FINALLY…the lizard has come back to the work place
ah yes ladies and gentlemen, i have a job. i couldnt have asked for a better one either. i’m working at a cardiology clinic, on the fifth floor of a physicians building next door to a downtown hospital. its convenient, because its got easy access to the freeway, so i can go home for lunch and take care of my animals, and five minutes to pick up my guy after work. i’ll be working with a nurse practitioner, a very nice person who i will get on with very well. im so excited!
the other good thing that happened yesterday was at my bank. there have been some changes in their web page, which is a good thing, but a bad thing. its much easier to get to the accout activities page, and more secure. but the account activities page has spurred alot of complaints because its so lacking in detail, and set up differently from the old one. so to cut to the chase, i was getting confused about my actual balance, which used to be so easy to follow on the old page. this resulted in several overdraft charges. now they handle overdrafts differently than they used to before the change over, so this only added to the problem. i had gone in to contest two of the charges, siting timing issues, when this posted, when that was charged, and so on. they in fact refunded all four of the charges…..OMG!!! that was $100 returned to my account! that was the favor of God for sure! i was so surprised, but in a good way!
yesterday was just such a good day.

We live within the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods. This I declare, that He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him. For He rescues you from every trap and protects you from the fatal plague. He will shield you with his wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor. Now you don’t need to be afraid of the dark any more, nor fear the dangers of the day; nor dread the plagues of darkness, nor disasters in the morning.
Though a thousand fall at my side, though ten thousand are dying around me, the evil will not touch me. I will see how the wicked are punished, but I will not share it. For Jehovah is my refuge! I choose the God above all gods to shelter me. How then can evil overtake me or any plague come near? For He orders his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will steady you with their hands to keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the trail. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes, yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
For the Lord says, "Because he loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name. When he calls on me, I will answer; I will be with him in trouble and rescue him and honor him. I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation."
in january my son is going to iraq. he’a marine.
ah, the writer’s block is gone. at least i’m in a rambling mood, and feel like writing. the cool reprieve is over, and the temperature is 94.7*, with a relative humidity of only 43%. nevertheless, the heat index is a brilliant 102*……. it feels alot more humid than is being reported. it feels like one of those days when you can go outside and drown on your front porch. gasp.
i still say the worlds worst drivers live here. at least the country’s worst. i was on my way to pick up my beau from work yesterday. i was heading up an overpass that extends over a railroad yard, merges from two lanes into one, and then goes back to two lanes where an interstate off ramp connects to it. i was on the inside, the last in a row of three cars. there was a not so old man and his wife driving on the outside lane also crossing the curving overpass, just about even with me. we were approaching the lane merge, and of course he sped up, failed to signal, failed to look, and began to cross over into my lane. fine, except that i was still occupying that portion of the lane. i honked to get his attention. then i honked repeatedly. when it became apparrent that he did in fact know i was there and was going to force me to yield to him, i had no choice but to let him take cuts. our car is relatively new. i was very close to having a carnality fit. he would have to flip me off as he passed in front of me. argghh. some one in his teens or early twenties i could see acting this way, and blow it off as impetuous youth. but a man in his fifties or so, with his wife (i guess) with him………
whatEVER. im used to drivers like that here. ive lived in several other states besides here and oregon, and i still say the worst drivers are here.
i had a second interview with a cardiologist last evening. it went well i think. a second interview is a good thing. the office manager is his wife. i seem to find myself in clinics where the doc and his wife both work at the clinic. but in this case its the nurse practitioner who is the main care provider at the clinic. i get a third interview with her friday or monday. a third interview is a very good thing!
