on April 26, 2008 - 9:31pm

I want to know if it is o.k. to give the name of other web sites without it being a problem.I have read the rules and didn't find any specifics but I want to be sure because I sure don't want to be banned from this site.Will someone please help me as I have some excellent things to share and I don't want to show disrespect to someone else and their work.

Job not enough

on April 26, 2008 - 1:42pm

I was and still am,excited about returning to work but I was hired into a casual position and the hours just aren't enough.I still have to make a living and money is too inconsistent on a casual wage.I like the hourly rate of pay I make in a hospital but need more hours.I will have to return to the private sector for lower wage but more hours.Work a little harder for less money but the trade off is the way I am utilized in the private sector as compared to the public one.Patient care is more prominent in the private sector because you have to earn that patients dollar where in the public you are paid by the government and monitored by a union.I personally prefer the private sector as I more direct and am not that warmed to unions.To me they are just another deduction off of my pay cheque and really only look after themselves [business is business].To make a long story short I will be seeking a new job on Monday.I will apply to a private clinic that had offered me a position in the past,a formality and start over.One thing about working in a smaller city is I have a reputation for excellent work and that has proceeded me into job possibilities,not only in this city but others as well.If I want to move I will have employment in other centres as well.I tried something I wasn't sure I would be comfortable with,on someone's advice,to work in the public sector and it's just not for me.I don't seemed to get as much job satisfaction working in a hospital as I did in a private clinic.

waiting

on April 25, 2008 - 10:28pm

They shipped my bracelet on the 16th and now I find myself watching the mail even though I know better.It always takes at least 4 weeks for me to receive things from the Josh store.I will no sooner get my bracelet then I will be waiting anxiously for the Awake Live DVD.Please hurry wonderful gifts.I am more anxious waiting for the DVD than the bracelet as it will take me back to seeing Josh in Calgary.That was already last August and I am yearning to see him again live,especially if I can get the same seats I had [at his feet].

Lonely night

on April 24, 2008 - 8:30pm

I find myself on here more and more often these days. My daughter is away more often and my husband has always been a quiet and reclusive guy.I am however,more of a social animal and miss the company and conversation of my daughter as she lives her own life.So----this seems to be the place I go to express.Thank-you to all the people that reply and listen as there is some comfort in knowing that a common interest of one man's voice and presence can bring strangers together.I wonder if Josh is aware of just how special he is?I think Josh looks a little tired and like he is working too hard.I hope he doesn't burn himself out because he is to kind to say no.In his own words "I am just a man".

better looking day

on April 24, 2008 - 9:20am

It is warming up here and the sun is supposed to shine sometime today.I had to break down and go for a walk yesterday,so I didn't lose my mind, and it wasn't so bad. Very little ice only under tree branches and of course where people were unable to shovel the snow away.The snow blew around my face and I needed an extra jacket but the exercise was so refreshing.I will venture out doors again today.
We have found a new home for our tortoise as he is out growing our capabilities to take care of him and it is a sad but happy occasion. We will be taking him to a sanctuary at the end of the summer.He has become part of the family and it is difficult to part with him but he needs to be in a bigger area to move around more.He is so very interesting to watch I didn't think a tortoise could have such a personality and this guy has attitude to burn,he is spoiled rotten,and thinks he is human.My daughter has a tendency to do that to her pets,turn them human,as she has done the same with the cat.They are truly loved to bits in this house-hold and return their love to her.
