The Post of November

Yeah yeah yeah, I know. I never post anymore. Thats what happens when you have 2 jobs. I barely take the time to read blogs right now. My life is so busy coming home from one job, changing, and back out the door to another one. One of these days it will change. But before I go, i would like to leave you with one thought....
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate.And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Tuesday Thoughts.....

Today's Deep Thought....

One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh no," I said, "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but decided to go home instead.

And a good laugh for Tuesday...

Tuesdays Thoughts

For all of you who are wondering, I have not been hired on as of yet. Waiting for all of the red tape to be cut with H/R. I am enjoying my job and am continuing to learn and be taught new things. I started a new project today that I actually enjoy doing.

On Saturday, I went with Jon to On Target with the Varsity scouts. For more info and pictures on it go see Jon's blog. I was amazed to be able to see some of the signals of mirrors so brightly on mountain tops so far away. It was really cool. But signalling the sheriff helicopter was the funniest part of the day.

I found a blog that I really like and you all need to check it out for a good laugh. Follow the link here.... Some are cool and some are just hilarious.

And to leave you with one Deep Thought .....

If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let'em go,because, man, they're gone.

Sunday Update

Hello everybody, I have been busy with a variety of things between work and the kids activities. It feels like there is no time to post anymore. I know, I always say that, oh well.

I have been working at USFoodservice now for 3 months this week. They informed me last week that they wanted to hire me full time as an A/R Adjuster. I have no idea what the pay will be yet, but I am looking forward to having a permanent job. It definatly gets boring at times though. I am working towards getting my CPA within the next year. I would prefer to do more things than just A/R. By the way for those unaccounting people, it means accounts receivable.

In the mean time, I am probably gonna be looking for a part time 2nd job to make more mulla. Nights and weekends will be busy, but someone has to do it.

Jon's football games have been awesome. Everybody needs to come and watch his game, they are fun to watch and cheer a #1 team on. Go Shepherd, city champs 4 years running. This week is a game against my old Jr high Poston. Kick their butts Jon.

Saturday, Jon and I went to do a service project at the welfare farm in Coolidge. That was a lot of work. We got to clean out a irrigation ditch along the farm. We had to trim weeds and dig the dirt out of the ditch. It started easy with about an inch of dirt. Then about half way down the ditch got deeper with dirt and ended up with about 2 feet of dirt to dig. That was a fun morning to kill a back, but the blessings are worth it.

Gotta go now and prepare a lesson for the Teachers about quorum unity and why we have a quorum, boring lesson. Enjoy your lessons today and listen because your teachers took time to prepare those lessons for you to hear(that's a plug for me cuz I have to teach, hehe).

Time to go eat some ceelo for bessess(ask Jenna from when she was little).
Austa la Pasta,

Speaking in Church

Well what can I say, its finally over. Off the hook for a little while from speaking in church. I have now spoken twice this year in church. I was getting really nervous because there were callings or announcements to do so we started the sacrament ten minutes into the meeting. Ten minutes later it was time for all of us to speak. Me, Michelle, and one( yep one) youth speaker. I was thinking that we were totally screwed. But the youth speaker told me her talk was 5 pages long, I told her that's crazy cuz mine was 7 pages and it was double spaced. Well she spoke for 15 minutes, I was impressed by a youth speaker. She spoke longer than me. SO I lucked out and had only 10 min left in the meeting when it was my turn, so that's all I gave. Since everyone else posts their talks, I will do the same.

Oh yeah, I haven't heard back from Banner yet, I will keep y'all posted. And that lovely storm last Thursday hit my work and we had no power have the day and it was end of month so we a had to stay and work on generator power with no A/C for about 6 hours, that sucked.

Here's my talk:

This past week I have had time to think about my trials and the things that I am going through. I kept asking myself when it is going to end because I can’t take much more of this. Then I started to prepare my talk and I read so many things about trials and how to overcome them. The one consistent thing I read in most of the talks was that we need to endure to the end. But enduring to the end isn’t always the easiest thing. Life can throw some pretty big curve balls at us which make it easy to forget such a simple principle.

So how do we endure to the end? Is it just surviving and waiting for the end to overtake us? Or do we need to have great faith and follow the commandments of our Heavenly Father.

Often we do not know what we can endure until after a trial of our faith. We are also taught by the Lord that we will never be tested beyond that which we can endure (see 1 Cor. 10:13).
If we are patient in our afflictions, endure them well, and wait upon the Lord to learn the lessons of mortality, the Lord will be with us to strengthen us unto the end of our days: “He that shall [faithfully] endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Mark 13:13) and return with honor to our Heavenly Father.

We learn to endure to the end by learning to finish our current responsibilities, and we simply continue doing it all of our lives. We cannot expect to learn endurance in our later years if we have developed the habit of quitting when things get difficult now.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus “fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matt. 26:39).
It takes great faith and courage to pray to our Heavenly Father, “Not as I will, but as thou wilt.” The faith to believe in the Lord and endure brings great strength. Some may say if we have enough faith, we can sometimes change the circumstances that are causing our trials and tribulations. Is our faith to change circumstances, or is it to endure them? Faithful prayers may be offered to change or moderate events in our life, but we must always remember that when concluding each prayer, there is an understanding: “Thy will be done” (Matt. 26:42). Faith in the Lord includes trust in the Lord. The faith to endure well is faith based upon accepting the Lord’s will and the lessons learned in the events that transpire.

As we put our faith in the Lord and keep our focus on the eternities, we will be blessed to be able to accept whatever trial we are given, for life on earth, as we know it, is only temporary, and, if we endure it well, the Lord has promised us: “And, if you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God” (D&C 14:7).
I read a story from the New Era given by Teri Halling in May 1991 issue. I would like to read it to you. It says:
Murphy’s Law could have been named after me. It wasn’t just “one of those days.” It was turning into one of those weeks. Fortunately, the solution was on a slip of paper in my jewelry box.
It had been a tiring day at school. I was ready to call it quits after getting a C on an exam for which I had studied for weeks, having a fight with my best friend, and scraping my knee during gym.
“Hey,” I told myself, “you’ll be okay. Remember, endure to the end!” So I tried to put forth extra effort to have a good attitude.
The following day seemed worse. It all started with soggy cereal. Next, I couldn’t find my shoe and nearly missed the bus. When I came home, I realized that I had left my homework at school. I kept telling myself, “Hang in there; you’ll make it!”
Later that afternoon, my grandmother called to tell me that my great-grandmother had passed away. I could hardly believe it. I was devastated. I found myself crying nonstop. All I could think about was Great-grandma and her happy, smiling face. She cared about everyone, and I never heard her speak an unkind word. Everybody loved her. Some of my fondest memories are of her telling me Bible and Book of Mormon stories during trips.
Now she was gone.
The next day was difficult for me, and school was discouraging. We had a pop quiz that lowered my overall grade, and my eighth-grade band teacher got upset at us for no apparent reason. I tried praying for comfort, but it didn’t seem to help. I think it was because I was feeling sorry for myself.
When I came home from a Mutual activity that evening, I went into my room and locked the door. Then the tears came full force. Suddenly, I realized that if I wanted comfort, I needed to help myself a little. I opened my jewelry box and pulled out a piece of paper on which I had written three scriptures that could give comfort. The paper had been part of a Sunday School lesson a year earlier. I chose to read Doctrine and Covenants 50:5:
“But blessed are they who are faithful and endure, whether in life or in death, for they shall inherit eternal life.” [D&C 50:5]
I couldn’t have felt better or calmer. I decided that I would endure and have faith. That verse had a great impact on me. So now whenever I have troubles that seem to go on and never stop, my Doctrine and Covenants is the first thing I go to. I have read that verse over and over. Then I pray about it, and pretty soon things start to get better.

What a great story, I have those kind of days, who doesn’t. It really is about how we deal with those kind of days.

I have gone through one of my biggest trials this year. Having to start over with work has been a very hard thing to do. I have had days when I think about my own trials and how depressing it is and why does it have to happen to me. If I continue that way of thinking it can be really easy to start on a path to destruction. I could let depression get me down and cause me to forget about my role I play in my family. I am a father, a husband, and a son. I can’t let the trials in life ruin my life, I need to get up and show my family that no matter what the trials are that I can still be there for them and that the Lord is my first priority.

We all have many different trials that come upon us, and each one can have a different set of responses to them. If someone is stricken with an illness, they may need to be patient and faithful. Others may suffer from someone’s hurtful words or actions may need to work on forgiving those whom offended them. If a trial is due to disobedience, then the behavior should be to seek forgiveness. There are many ways to deal with our trials, but the one thing we all need to do is remember what Alma taught, he said, “Whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.” Alma 36:3

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin once told of farmers in the hot desert of northwest Mexico who “grow varieties of corn and beans that are unusually hardy and drought resistant. These varieties survive and flourish in a harsh climate where other plants would wither and die. One of these plants is the white tepary bean. Its seed will sprout and the plant will grow even when very little rain falls. It sends its roots as deep as six feet into the rocky, sandy earth to find the moisture it needs. It can flower and fruit in the 115-degree (Fahrenheit) desert temperatures with only one yearly rainfall. Its foliage remains remarkably green, with little irrigation, even in the heat of mid-July.” What can we learn from this analogy? Elder Wirthlin suggested: “Perhaps members of the Church could emulate the example of these hardy, sturdy plants. We should send our roots deep into the soil of the gospel. We should grow, flourish, flower, and bear good fruit in abundance despite the evil, temptation, or criticism we might encounter. We should learn to thrive in the heat of adversity” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1989, 7; or Ensign, May 1989, 7)

I would like to close by reading two quotes. First, Elder Orson F. Whitney said: “No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God … and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven” (quoted in Spencer W. Kimball, Faith Precedes the Miracle, 98).

And the Prophet Joseph Smith said: “I am like a huge, rough stone rolling down from a high mountain; and the only polishing I get is when some corner gets rubbed off by coming in contact with something else, … knocking off a corner here and a corner there. Thus I will become a smooth and polished shaft in the quiver of the Almighty” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, sel. Joseph Fielding Smith [1976], 304).

Brothers and Sisters, I know that our trials sometime seem hard and that they will never go away. But I know that the Lord has his hand in everything, he said he will not give us more trials then we can handle and there are times when it seems he gave all of them to me at once. But if we learn to deal with them with patience, humility, faithfulness, and endure to the end, we will get through them. I feel like I have had to relearn these principles myself in the past year. I know that I couldn’t have made it through this without my family especially my wife. Without her, my trials would have been so much harder. It is nice to have someone there to pick me back up when I would start to sink down in despair. We have the support in our ward to endure to the end. We are all an eternal family who can support each other through our friendship and love. I know personally how hard things can be and feel I need to share that with those who need to hear it. An old saying says , “when life deals you lemons, serve it lemonade.” What a great way to deal with things that come up, take the sour things and make them sweet. I may be having trials with starting over in the workplace, but with faith, I know the lord will teach me what I need to learn from this experience. But I have to do my part and read my scriptures, say my prayers, perform my callings, come to church, go to the Temple, and obey the commandments. If I can do these things, then the Lord will bless me and help me learn. I hope that as we leave here today, that we cannot worry so much about the trials and tribulations we have in our lives, but to focus on the blessings that we will receive from these trials.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

So much to do, so little time.

Lately it has felt like I have no time to get stuff done that I need to. I have not got used to working a normal schedule yet. I used to be free and get home around 11am. Then i had the entire day to get stuff done. Now I get home at 4 and with all the kids stuff, Jon's football, scouts and stuff it feels like there isn't enough time in the day. I am going to start working an hour earlier this week, so I should be home by 3 now.

As far the the old house goes, we only have a few small loads of junk to get out of the garage and big hunk of metal to get over here. I was kind of funny cuz I needed a battery for the Chevelle so I went to checker to get one. I told the guy what kind of car it was and he said, ooooh, a classic. If only he could see it, lol.

My interview with Banner went really good. My inside connections said good things about me so I hope that goes in my favor. I was able to throw around some other names of people I know there. I should hear by Friday if I get it.

Fortune cookies are awesome!!!!
I got a fortune cookie and my fortune said," Success and wealth are in your future." And the other one sad,"Happiness is around the next corner, wealth down the street." So I guess things are headed for the turn around.

Then there is my cell phone. My phone decided that it did not want to work anymore so the battery port broke. I went to plug it in and the charging port pull out of my phone. So now I don't have a phone that works. The worst part is I pay for a warranty with t-mobile and they have a $125 replacement fee for my phone. What the crud is a warranty for if you still have to pay to replace the phone. What a joke. So now I am trying to locate an inexpensive t-mobile phone till I can switch carriers.

So that is the recent going ons with me. I try to post as much as possible, but it seems like once a week is about all I can do for now. C-YA

I'mmmmmm Baaaaaaccckkkk

I am back. Yep, I was sick of logging on just like all of you. I had some jerks sending me emails and posting on my blog and decided to shut it off for a time. But i have been so busy I havent had time to blog anyways.

The Job:
I am working a temp job for US Foods that at the current time might become permanent soon. They are impressed by how quick I learn the systems. they told me I am doing better tham some of their full time adjusters. So I have been sortof promoted for the third time in 8 weeks to be trained as a financial analyst. Thats right, my education is finally starting to pay off.

The interviews:
I am still applying for jobs to hopefully get a better paying job or some leverage with the temp job. I am waiting to hear back from Scottsdale Healthcare, really would like that one. And I have a job interview with Banner Health Surgery Centers on the 20th. I have an inside connection there that I am going to talk to Monday to see if he will put in a good word for me.

I like our new ward. It is small, but that is fun because we will get to know everyone a little easier. I have already been given a calling in the ward and no records yet. The Bishop wanted to talk to us on Sunday and brought us all in his office. Then on Thurs, his councellor called to come visit us. We thought he just wanted to meet with us, and he said he did but he had some other business. He said the Bishop had a feeling about me and wanted me to be in The Young Men program. So I am being called back to YM as the 1st counselor in the Presidency. At least I will be once they have our records. I am really excited to be back in YM. I have worked with the Deacons for 3.5 years and loved it. When I was released it did not feel like a burden lifted off me, it felt more like my family was being taken away. I really loved my deacons quorum. They taught me sometimes more than I taught them. It will be a little different working with the Teachers, but I look forward to the new challenge and I get to be with Jon again.

The House:
Love it, hate it. I love our house, it is nice and big, lots of room for the kids to play. Hate leaving the old ward, the pool, and the RV gate. I have nowhere to park my Chevelle, but Jon will be driving it in a year anyways.

We are excited for the chance to meet new people and make new friends. Love having good freeway access. Hope you enjoed reading this long post. I will try to blog more now that life is starting to calm down again.

I've Gone Private

Well I did it, I've gone private. I know its a pain to log in, but it needed to be done. I have got annoying people sending me emails that have read my blog. So now I have to be safe and shut it down from the world. Soooooo, I should be posting a little more regularly. But I'm tired tonight so more later about things.

Yes Its True

Yes its true, I am home. Its also true that I have a new job starting Monday. I will be working for a staffing company called Ajilon. They have me working for a company called US Foodservice. I will not be making much money but, it is a start in the accounting industry. As I was leaving home from my brothers house, they called and wanted an interview on Thursday.
I also had an interview with another staffing company on Friday. It wasn't as positive as the other one and she really wanted me to change my entire resume to "help her, help me". I will do what she suggested and see if it makes a difference.
I am excited to be home again and hope I can find a good paying job with some of the experience that I will get.

Tuesday, June 10, 2008


Well here I am, working and finding no time to blog. I no wifi at kirks and only can log on at the plant. So I have time on my break to write this blog. I am working getting all sorts of dirty.
I am definitely missing Michelle and the kids. I have never been away like this from them. I didn't think it would be so hard to be away. I guess I need to go to Eric's and see his kids to remind me of home. I love my family to death and am doing this for them.
I am looking forward to coming home for Katie's and my Moms b-days. Kirk and I will come there on Friday and go back on Sun. Hopefully one of the 20 jobs Michelle has applied for, for me will call.
Gotta get back to moving dirt. Maybe I will be back on in a few days. CYA

Love Screaming Kids and My Wife, gonna miss em.

It has been so great to have my family back with me. I have a different understanding of my family now. It has been a joy to hear screaming kids and to have my wonderful wife back in my arms.

Now just as quick as I get them, I get to go to Albuquerque. I am excited to make money again but will miss the family. Michelle is nervous though because the Bishop wants to meet with her at 4:30 and I will be gone already. She doesn't want to be released but the Lord works in mysterious ways.

It is time to go to church and then head out of town. I will blog again when I figure out my Internet connection up there.

Midweek Update: Bored outa my mind

I am bored...

Michelle took the kids on vacation with her family and left me home to supposedly run Franks business. So, my family is off having all sorts of fun and I'm stuck here bored to tears. You see, every time Frank leaves out of town the business gets slower than ever. They call me and tell me how much fun they are having and that the beach is great. Yet I am sitting on my couch in my house wondering why I am not there. It is so frustrating and hard to be excited for them when I can't enjoy it with them. It almost feels like I am getting taught yet another lesson from Frank. Because I always have to be taught a lesson from him in some way or another. But enough of my public venting.

So yes, I do miss my family and love them very much. And they are not allowed to EVER go on vacation without me again. But I cant say too much more on here because I don't know who reads my blog because hardly anyone posts replies. I need to be better posting all of your blogs too. Especially since I will be in New Mexico all the time soon. Man that's gonna be hard to be away from my family but at least I will be around my brothers.

Well, enough of my venting, I need to go clean my house and then help my Dad take stuff to the dump. C-YA

I'm Outa Here

So if you have not heard yet, I'm gonna work with my brothers in albekirkie. I will help Kirk do whatever needs to be done. This should be temporary until I can find a permanent job in the finance world.
I am gonna work one more week here and then head up there to work. I will still come back on the weekends to see my family though. I will miss them while I am gone, but I need to make money to pay out bills.
I hope they both know how much me and my family appreciate the chance to make some money. It really sucks to make nothing every week and wonder what bills I can afford to pay. Another thing that sucks is to lose my house. We sure thought this was where we would retire. I guess you never know what is planned from the Lord.
We hope to find a house that we can rent that will not cost too much and get settled before school starts.
Went to Jon's game today and they got beat by the first place team. They figured that would happen since the last time they played they lost 25-1.
So that's the story of my life for now, c-ya.

Almost the Weekend

WooHoo its Thursday, that means its almost the weekend.

To update on Alex, he came home on tuesday and he is doing much better. He is running around like his crazy old self. He gets to do a breathing treatment every 6 hours and fights every minute of it. He has an appt with his doc on friday, so we will know more then.

We went to the Temple today and I had this thought that we were gonna be the witness couple. Well it was almost time to go so I thought we were clear when out of nowhere Michelle made eye contact with the Brother conducting. He got up and walked over and Bam, what do ya know, witness couple. It didnt help the nerves that the room was very hot. And then the old man sitting next ot me starts chewing hard candy right in the middle of it. I wanted to lean over and tell him lunch time is later, jeesh.

As for as the job hunt goes, still looking for one. I will keep posting until one finally thinks I'm cool enough for them. Not this crap of..."you were a very strong candidate but, we found someone just a little better than you. Keep applying though, something might come up again." Whatever, just so I can get beat by someone who knows someone who knows someone.

The Hospital and Phnemonia

Alex started running a fever on thurs evening and we thought it was another ear infection. We figured he wasgoing to get tubes on tues so it wouldnt be a big deal. But by Saturday he still had a fever and started breathing with very short breaths. On Sun morning we woke up and he had a temo of 103 so we caled the Doctor. He told us to take him to the ER and have him checked out.
Once at the ER, I met a Doctor Stone who used to work with Dad in the ER. I told him and he said we were in good hands. So they took an x-ray and found fluid in his lungs. Man I felt like crappiest parent of the year. I know we couldnt have known, but I'm still aloud to feel like crap. The poor kid has phenomia. The doctor first said it sounded like he was breathing like it hurt. Apparently it does.
SO he is admitted at the hospital and we will see how he respondsd to the treatments. He does not like the breathing treatment cause the mask bothers him. He also hates the IV and wants it out. I dont blame him though, I would find that annoying too.
So our Sunday consisted of sitting at the hopistal all day. Poor Michelle has to stay with him there over night. I will go on monday to help her however she needs it though. Well I need to get to Bed, Chow.

Alex after his IV was put in.

The shadow on the left or in his right lung is fluid.

His dinosaur breathing mask, he is getting a breathing treatment every 4 hours. He does not like the mask.

Holding his Monsters Inc Movie that he was watching in the ER.

Alex and me sitting in his hospital bed.

The Inteview and Another One

Well, my interview went really well. I got in the interview room and 2 people were there to interview me. The man sat in his chair and immediately leaned all the way back in his chair. I was like ALRIGHT this dude is chilling out. That definately set the tone a little easier, but I still did not let my guard down. They asked typical questions and told me they should make adecision for a 2nd interview by next wed. So I left without any assessment tests.

On my way home I get a call from a long distant number. I usually dont answer because of the usuall answers. But I decided to answer it. It was the recruiter from my phne interview asking how my interview was. I told it went well and she says, well it went so well they to have me back in on tues. So I have another interview on tues at 10am and I am supposed to do the assessments then.

I am excited and I feel like I should be able to get this job. It probably doesnt start until the begining of June, but that will be ok.

On another note, we might have found a house to rent in the big QC. Its close to Rittenhouse and Ellsworth. It is in the villages at QC. We will look at it on Mon so I will let ya'll know.

A 2nd Interview

Yeehaw!!! I had my phone interview today and I felt it went really well. I studied the company and also some accounting books. I was comfortable answering the questions she asked and I felt very positive about it.

Then I called back a guy who wanted to meet me tonight in a so called job fair. I found out that he was with Primerica so I told him to take the highway.

So, Michelle and I went looking for houses for rent to see what was out there. We found that there are not many of signs posted for the rentals. We will do more looking later, but back to the 2nd interview part.

When we got home 2 hours later, there was a message to call back the girl who interviewed me. I thought it was awfully fast so they must not like me. Yeah right, I got a 2nd interview on Friday at 10am. Woohoo!!!! I am nervous though because it is gonna have an assessment test and should last about 2.5 hours. I'm gonna be there forever. So, now I have gone from really excited to really nervous.

I just want to thank everyone for their prayers, I couldn't of done without you. Here's to more prayers on Friday.

Good news, Bad News.

The good news -
  • I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview on Tues with a company called CB Richard Ellis. They have an entry level accounting coordinator position open. So, any prayers from you all would be appreciated.

The Bad News -

  • We talked to our mortgage company and was told they would only work with us if we could keep making our current payments soon. Otherwise we have to move. So we have to move. We will be finishing the house repairs over the next week so we can try to sell and get all of the value that our house is worth. They said to list it at market value and once we have a buyer they will work with them on the short sell. Hopefully we wont lose too much in the sell and have to pay it back. This is unfortunate for us because we wanted to retire in this house. And now we have to pull the kids from their friends and ward. We would like to find something at least in the same school and maybe the same ward.

Hopefully you are having a better day.

Bad Day at Hooper Airport

First was my plane losing the nose, motor, and the tail. I basically laughed it off because I hit a lame bush when I was trying to land. Rookie error.

The nose and motor of my plane.

Jon had a much worse day. Complete and utter destruction of his plane.

Plane parts.

Plane parts stacked.

Overall it was a really fun day flying planes with Kirk and Jon. It was disappointing to go out on my first flight with my new plane and crash it. But Kirk and I got my plane all fixed today and took one flight and successfully landed even though it was dark and couldn't see enough. Jon and Kirk on a good day of flying.

Air time.

Nothing is Going on

Man, I haven't posted for a while. I guess thats what happens when you are really bored. Nothing has been happening with my job search. I have a couple of prospects this week and am hoping for some callbacks. Jeremy is trying to help me get a job with godaddy, cross our fingers. I also contacted an old friend and he forwarded my resume to some colleagues of his and put a good word in for me. All I can do is hope something happens soon or else it is time to live in a tent.

What a Week

WOW , this week has been busy. I have been fortunate to have some work this week with my bil. We have turned from medical supply delivery guys to medical equipment delivery guys. We have been moving equipment from a closed hospital to several surgery centers. What a pain in the butt. Thankfully we are making good money but it will probably end this week. The funniest thing was when another company referred to us as bed buggers. They said thats what they call the small moving companies, so I told Jeremy that our new name is Bed Bugger Moving Company. But seriously, I am still looking for a good accounting job, so if you know anybody that needs a good accountant who knows how to move supplies around, I'm that guy.

The Parrot

So the other day, for some strange reason, I sent a text to my bil Jeremy and told him I was a parrot. So I decided to post a picture I took of 2 parrots at the zoo. You see I think it would be nice to be a bird, able to fly wherever you want and do what you want. That is of course that you dont live in captivity, cause that would suck. I would be stuck in a cage and more then likley have my wings trimmed, so then I couldn't fly. Oh well. And by the way, Yes I do like Ritz. Squaaaaawk!!!!

Losing My Job

Today I was informed that 1 of the 3 places I delivery for does not need our services anymore. The problem is that they provide 95% of my work. So I am looking for a new job, so if you know anyone or place that needs an accountant let me know.
