The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

It was a terrible offer. I came back with a counter offer and will here next week what they have to say about it. Very frustrating! And wrong!!|

Vegas Golden Knights won again last night over the "Kings". They now lead 2 games to 0. This new hockey team is steamin' HOT!!! |
Had a small win at the casino last night....and a fun time.
Had to get new tires and struts for the car yesterday. The good news is that Bill knew 2 tires needed to be replaced but not all four....and he sure didn't know the struts were in bad shape. So good to know this BEFORE we started the 2000 mile trek home.
Had a long talk with my brother's wife yesterday. She seems to be doing all right. She's sad and missing Tom but trying to keep herself busy. We promised to stay in touch.
Our lawn and rose bushes are totally AWESOME!

So glad to hear you and SIL will keep touch. It will really matter in your life.|
Beverly...yes, I thought about this quite

a bit and decided it's important that I stay in touch with Ruth. We've never been close....(mainly due to the mean things she'd say to me about my brother)but that's OK now. I intend to stay fairly close with her and duaghter Katie..also my nephew, Tom. I know it's what Tommy would want.|

Recovering...I got the job offer yesterday but it was a very low-ball offer. With some of the perks I have at my job ($2000 stipend for CEUs), I'd end up making LESS!!! I told them no. She called me back and asked me what I do want. I gave her a very reasonable answer. It was about 4PM when these phone calls started. I didn't hear back from her but assume it's because she couldn't reach anyone to discuss my request. I can't believe that after all of this stress, I will be no better off than I am right now. My gut tells me I will get what I want but, then, I never expected THIS! |
Heather's mare had her foal early this morning! The mommy wouldn't let her near enough to know the sex. I follow Heather and her horses. It makes me smile.
Back to the drawing board regarding a food plan.
Health enough (if not energy enough!) to clean my house and cut my grass.
Took Charlie for his 'long' walk this morning...it'sin t he 60s, birds chirping, flowers blooming everywhere...our area is noted for its azaleas and they are coming into their own now.

Good luck getting what you want on your job! I am betting they will give you what you ask for! Keep us posted! |
Paula,,, this is fantastic.

I am wishing well with your new job and new possibilities!!! |
All the best with the job!
Posted by Krista on 4/14/2018, 10:31 am, in reply to "Mine"
Did they changed their offer? I thought when you originally applied it was substantially more than your current salary which was one of the draws. Stand TOUGH for EXACTLY what you want Paula.|

I was basing my assumption on the difference in between the Internal Medicine and Psychiatry Depts. I was hoping for a 9-10% raise. Maybe that was too high...my reply to their offer was about a 5 1/2 % raise. Don't think I'll take it for less. My annual raise is due in Oct so that would bump me up another 2-3%. |
Hang in there, Paula

Good things are happening . . .|

1. The weekend is upon us! I always love my weekends! |
2. The chiminea that I bought from my sister in law Paula. She was selling hers and had posted it on Facebook. I inquired about it but she had another guy that asked first. She told me if his sale fell through she would sell it to me and he kept making excuses and pushing his pick up time back, so it became mine! Itís this really cool terra cotta one that she and my late brother Mike used all the time when he was alive-so it is very special to me! We are picking it up today!
3. Weight Watcher meetings! Today is day 1 of going to them! Very excited!
4. A program that works and the willingness to work it. I have been on this WW road for 2 years and 2 months! Definitely a program I can live with!
5. All the blessings I have in my life. I am truly blessed. Thank you ladies for your friendships. I treasure each and every one of them!
you will love the chimenea...

We had a chimenea

for many years and used it constantly. They were very popular in Vegas at the time. Now, we have a cast iron type couldron (sp) that we burn in. |
At the lake, we have a huge open fire pit surrounded by cement blocks. We have bon-fires almost every night when the kids are there.
Excited for you!

I think the meetings will be such great motivation! What's your loss with WW? I want to hear you SHOUT IT OUT AGAIN! |
Had to look 'chiminea' up !!

In case anyone else has to, Wikipedia says it's an outdoor fireplace!!|
