Finally Over all the Illness and Finally Some Good News!!

I am pretty much over all my illness, except a lingering cough.  That will be with me a little while.  Well I have a story to tell you!!  Along with being so sick, I got a call to interview for a pretty large company here in Charlotte!  The first interview was when I first got all my illnesses, but I plowed thru it the best I could, especially with laryngitis.  Then I was asked the next week to come back for a second interview.  The first interview I met with 3 people.  The second interview I met with 2 people.  Last week I got a call and was asked if I could meet an HR person and the other person I would be working with for lunch.  So I met with them for lunch last Wednesday and Thursday morning they called and I got the job!!  I start 4/3!  I will be a Contract Administrator for Northwood Ravin.  This company is huge in Charlotte and all around the US.  They are a multi-family construction company.  They are also the Developer/Owner and they retain their properties after they are built and rent the apartments out.  This is huge for me because it is a $20,000/yr. raise!! This is the first time in my whole career I have been recognized for my skill and paid for it well!

Everything else in my life has been going good.  I got to see the grandboys both Saturday and Sunday, so that was double the fun!!  We went on Saturday and saw Beauty and the Beast.  We all enjoyed it.  Then we went to Moe's Southwest Grill for lunch.  Sunday John and I had lunch at Megan and Ken's.  It was a really nice visit!  Then for dinner last night we all met at Bisonte's and had pizza and wings.  We had a really nice time!!

So now all the new job buying starts!  I already got my hair colored and cut and bought some new makeup.  I need to get some new clothes and definitely on this list is shoes!!  It always amazes me how your life can change in such a short period of time!!  This time for the good!

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

Sherri- I am just thrilled for you!!! Good for you...and now the fun of shopping for new clothes. I just saw an article somewhere on having 20 good basic pieces (including shoes, I think) for a job and that is all you would need. If I find that site I will send it along to you. Wow! Congratulations. I bet you are over the moon. I worked in the construction business for most of my life (it's really a man's world and one I thrived in). xo Diana

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
