The Friday Five Good Things

Five good things that happened this week.

1. Skyped with the Eldest

2. After almost a year being unemployed, she got a job at a call center. Not what she wants, but it will pay the bills

3. She also had an interview as a lab tech (what she wants). Fingers crossed this job comes through.

4. Heard lots of birds singing as I went out to run errands.

5. Taught the Young One to bake bread.

How was your week?

  2. I'm glad to hear the Eldest got a job, even if it wasn't what she wanted, so she can pay the bills. Hopefully the lab tech job comes through. That bread looks good. Looks like we're in for a cold weekend, but at least there's no snow in the forecast.

    1. We're hoping the adage that it's hard to find a job when you don't have one compared to when you have a job you can find one works.

    1. Oh, Tabbies, I love the little birdies. Birdies were Ink’s favorite thing to watch.

  5. Best wishes for a successful return on that interview. For an economy that's supposed to be doing well there seem to be a lot of people unable to find jobs that provide full-time work, benefits, and a livable income. I hurt for this generation :(

    Bread-making sounds like fun :)

    1. It’s a lot tougher out there than government officials are spinning up.

  6. The girlies were your favorites this week, I think. I hope the eldest gets the job she wants. Call centers can be stressful and they have a HIGH turnover rate.

    I think your youngest did GOOD. That bread looks yummy. I bet it tasted good, too.

    1. The Eldest worked for a catalog company while she was in college, she worked for the cable company, Spectrum for a year before she moved to Pennsylvania so knows only too well the downside of customer service.. Hopefully, her manning the phones will be a short stint

  7. congrats to the eldest - and hope she gets the job she wants at some point. Anything helps though.. And fun with the youngest baking. For me my day was great - i have one son who calls and we actually talk usually for about 3 hours ...maybe once every two weeks. Today was that day. That always makes it a good day.
