Now Playing: Becoming a State Employee...Again
Topic: Job Saga continues

After 25 years, I am going back to work for the state Department of Human Services.  I start tomorrow and as silly as it may sound I am a little nervous. And excited.  I know I am going to like the work and I know some of the employees already so it is not like walking into entirely new territory but I am nervous.  Because I am being hired on an emergency basis, I have been able to make arrangements to have the days off I have already made plans, so I get to keep my ticket to NYC.  I plan to keep my part time job as well, that is my "fun" money. 

Small Town starlite and I are going to NYC on her fall break which is Oct 19-22.  We are leaving on the evening of the 18th so will have to take the afternoon off.  We are taking my 8 year old niece.  We will have a blast.  Her parents said she could go if I will take her to some museums and make it educational since she will be missing 3 days of school.  I took her when she was 5 but her dad went with us then and she was really too young.  She did enjoy Beauty and the Beast on Broadway and the giant Toys R Us but I think the rest of it just went over her head so this time she will learn more from it.  I plan on taking her to MOMA, the museum of modern art, that recently reopened in Manhatten and to Ground Zero as well as Central Park and other places she will see on TV and hear about in the news.  I would like to bike the burroughs but in spite of my nagging, niece has still not learned to ride a bike.  I am looking forward to the trip but one bad thing is the time of the flights.  We won't get into NY until about 12 AM and have to leave on Sunday at 6 AM.  So I am taking her a blanket and pillow and telling her she needs to sleep every opportunity she gets.  We will probably go to the airport about midnight on Sunday and stay the night in the airport because I have missed a flight before when car service didn't work out on early am flights.  She can sleep while we are waiting around.  It has been a year since I went to the city and a couple of years for Courtney so I know she is excited.  We plan on getting some shopping done on Canel street so if you want one of those high dollar purses for knock off prices...let me know.

 Best get to bed, real work startes tomorrow

Name: "Sharon"

Wow, I have never read someone's blog before.  I guess I'll have to set one up for myself.  At least now I can keep up with you better.

I read one of your blogs that mentioned something about "a boring life".  You have one of the most entertaining lives of anyone I know.  Something going on all of the time, planned and unplanned it seems.

I am really confused.  Who are your nieces and nephews?  I had no idea you had an 8 year old niece. Boy your trip to NYC sounds wonderful.  One of these days if I can save up the money I would love to go with you.  I am already planning on going to Buffalo next spring.  It is about 8 hours from NYC.  Scott and  Monica made their move to Buffalo and are loving it so much.  Scott said airline tickets from Buffalo to NYC are pretty inexpensive.

So, you finally found a way to go back to work full time.  It sounds like you got a good position and the thought of state retirement does sound good, especially at your advanced age. 

Nothing much going on around here, so I'll close for now and check back later to read another exciting installment.
