Grief, I don't have that to do!

I work for a major hospital in the Pittsburgh area. They have been going through layoff and our department is also slated for some of these layoffs.
Because of rumors tensions have been high and caused unnecessary rifts between friends, coworkers and management.
Recently I did start to search for jobs and I applied for a job on line with a local courier company. You would get use of a company vehicle and there are benefits with the position. I checked my email and found 168 emails in it. Mostly was junk mail as usual, some of which I spammed and other just deleted. Finally I see the response to my on line application. A sorry we filled the position response! GRIEF!
I just went through 125 messages searching for this one and they reject me. See why I don't have that to do. Waste of time!
Then I see the offer to become a secret shopper. Cool! I know a friend who became a secret shopper and she loves it. She goes in to a store buys some stuff and then turn in the receipt to the company and they reimburse her and all she does is tell about her shopping experience. I could do that.
I start the process and GRIEF! it's one of these never ending survey's they just go on and on and on and on promising you gift cards and all you have to do is complete one offer, then its one silver offer, then it s 2 bronze offers. I DON'T HAVE THAT TO DO!
What do I have to do is find a new job. But right now I don't have that to do!

I registered to be a secret shopper. I got the name out of an article in the NYT, but haven't done any of the offers yet. The name of the company is Second to None, Inc. and I registered on line. Good luck!

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.  
DK I think she will be working on dresses.    I could just scream with exci…
S Sew Together!!Good day!  How was your weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend the sewing event was a beautiful success! 


The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
