The job's official!

I got the call with the offer of the job at 8:30am this morning, and I accepted. So it's offically official! Yeah! My first day of orientation is August 2. I am happy, because the call center is closed ever day from 12pm-4pm, so during that time I will never be working, and I can pick up my grandson from school and get him home and situated before every having to go in (or I will have already gotten off by 12 noon! This is a dream come true! Thank God!

You should see the difference in the okra plants I planted in the orange Lowes buckets that are in partial shade, and the ones planted in the earth on my little garden plot! The ones in the ground are teeney compared to the ones in the buckets! The bucket ones are 6 inches high, healthy looking large leaves, and ones in the ground are about 1.5 inches high and smalllll leaves. I think I will leave everything where it is, because I wanted to move the bucket ones to the ground, but now I am afraid to. I wouldn't be surprised if I lose all of the ground ones! How iritating!!!

Then I was tempted to plant papayas in the ground plot, but after eating one tonight, I have decideed that papaya is so mild it really doesn't taste like anything! It is full of good things for you, so I eat it, if one is GIVEN to me, but I cannot decided what this fruit is really supposed to taste like! It's just strange. Do you like it??? What does it taste like to you???

Today I accompanied my husband to the dermatologist (all was well), and I had my teeth cleaned. That is always a nice feeling.

Tomorrow we are going to see an American Girl movie...about Kit, who grew up during the Great Depression. My Mom is going with daughter, myself and the grands. They are showing free movies every Tues, Wed, and Thurs mornings at our theater here. They sure make their money selling popcorn and drinks! I bought 3 small sodas, and 2small bags of popcorn and it cost 23 dollars last week! Good grief! This week we will have a different strategy! Going out to lunch afterward, and adding Hubby to the mix!

Well, it has been a busy day and I am ready for sleep! Best wishes to you all...
xoxo- Julie

Hi Julie
Congratulations on your job! The hours could not have been better for did you ever manage that?? good for you..

Papaya..well I like it actually. Its not my favourite and actually I don't buy it from the store here but when I'm in Florida or in Hawaii and I see it there I like to order it and it alongside my breakfast...I'm not sure how to describe the taste...whatever that taste is.

It sounds like you'll have a great time at the movie. Isn't that highway robbery to charge those kinds of prices for treats. Remember when we were younger...young..*s*...we could eat allll kinds of goodies and it never seemed to be expensive..not like now.

Isn't that interesting about your plants? Guess they love the bucket.

Have a wonderful day..
p.s. I bet you could use your limes to make that loaf...

Congrats, sounds like a great job! I worked two hours today. For some reason I'm exhausted. So much for the food taster starship dream. Maybe next career. I really need to find something more permanent but I'm loosing motivation. Apparently it takes a lot of people up to six months. I'll just ride it out till then. ;)
