WEll I got the phone call today!!!:banana02: The school needs a sub. cafeteria cook... I have asked and asked about the application for the job (had my ap in since Aug) WELL THEY CALLED TODAY!!!! tomrrow at 1 pm I got to see the Superintendent! :)):rock: ONCE you get your foot in the door there, you can get a good chance at going to FULL TIME!!!

There is a bunch of "older" ladies there that are the cooks, sooo I think I can slide in and get ready in time for some retirements!:)





As some of you know how rough its been here w/ Mil having stage 4 pancreatic (btw THURS is her last day of chemo/radiation :hobbyhorse: )then her 1st cousin having the same and passing, then her brother having colorectal ( btw his heart is ok! WHEW) and then YESTERDAY we find out my husband needs his gallbladder out (and his insurance dont kick in til feb 7th) it is hard to see the silver LINING!!!

I know the saying " God only give you what you can handle" but I REALLY wish he didnt trust me soooooo much!!!


THANK YOU TO YOU ALL (my HT family) for all the thoughts and prayers!!! THere isnt a DAY that goes by that I am not thinking/talking about something said here, or how someone is doing!!!! :grouphug:

Congratulations!

I did something similar recently. After months and months of searching for a fulltime job, I accepted a part-time one that was offered to me. Not as many hours as I wanted, and no benefits, but I figured SOME money is better than NO money. I have been working very hard to do the best job I can, and I think it will eventually pay off with more hours, or even a possibility of a full-time position within the next year if the things my boss is telling me, come true. So take it, do your best, and hopefully good things will come from it!

Great news for you. BTW I am one of those "older" ladies lol that work in the cafeteria. I started 3 years ago part time and when 2 people retired I became the head cook. It is hard work as I do many other things also besides cooking. I hope when I move this spring I can get on at a school in KY for next year. Pay isn't great but insurance is and love summers off.

Glad to hear things are looking up. Congratulations on the job! Can your DH's gallbladder surgery wait until Feb. 7 or just after? That's only a couple weeks. I had my gallbladder removed 20 years ago and it was a breeze. Had laproscopic (sp) surgery on Thursday, walked to my mom's house for a popsicle on Friday and was back at work Monday morning.

For the interview, be very positive and upbeat (even though you're carrying quite a load right now) and cheerful. Superintendents want employees that bring good "vibes" as well as skills to the workplace. And whatever you do, DON"T say anything about how things are done "back home" or wherever you used to live. Just advice from one who has been there, it sometimes does'nt go over well.
Good luck on your chance to become a lunch lady, the kids will enjoy your smiling face!

Hey - that's great! I am very, very glad things are looking up. Sorry to hear about DH - gallbladder problems are painful. Glad he doesn't have to wait THAT long to have the surgery. He'll feel so much better and the operation is pretty much a snap these days.

Wow, I'm so happy for you - I know you'll get it. :)
