Claire, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum.

If it's any consolation, our daughter wanted to come for her Father and I encouraged her not to, but to wait until the Easter holidays. ( She is a single parent with a daughter in school and a very demanding job.) Her Dad would not have wanted her to add that stress as well.
He is progressing well now.

I do hope things look up again soon.

Thanks Alix and jkath. We'll the HR lady emailed me the copy of my application and the stinken document won't open so I just asked her to mail it to me. If I didn't want the job so bad I'd just say forget it. But the pay and benefits are amazing and the aspect of being able to retire in 20 years a bonus. I just hope it turns out its all I think it will be because I just don't see anything else out there for me right now that peeks my interest and the place I'm working at now is really going downhill quickly....they need to totally go in and clean house and get all new management.
But anyway thanks for letting me vent

Alix, I remember when I was 16 or 17 and head strep ones, doctor recommended to drink very worm tea with a table spoon of cognac in it. He said it was very soothing. So I came home that day and told my mom that doc said to drink a cup of cognac with a table spoon of tea in it. I did not get to do that then, but have tried that recipe latter on in life, works wonders, after 2-3 cups all pain is gone fro at least the rest of the day.

Charlie, DANG thats a good thought! Think brandy would do? I don't have any cognac, but I do have some brandy. I think I'll do that tonight it sounds like a winner!

Sizz, I feel your frustration. Keep at it, slog through all that paper, the end result MUST be worth it if you have to jump through so many hoops to get to it!

SizzlininIN, you need acrobat reader software. You should be able to find it free on internet to download.

I am sure Brandy will do just fine, Alix!

I guess I'm lucky, my husband made me put on my snow boots, and we walked Main Street for a pub crawl. It made me feel good to see how many people here like us, and made me remember why I moved here.
Claire, is there someone with her? Does she live alone? I could not rest knowing my mother was not feeling well with no one there. Is your dad there? I am just the kind of person who would rather know the real problem rather than guessing. When they get up in age, never know what is happening. sorry if I put fear into your thoughts. If my mom was around I would have been there no matter what. Grateful I can do as I please w/o someone trying to judge or cont rol me. My ex is gone. I can come and go w/o his negative comments. Too long, too late. He resented my mother too. I really don't know who he liked. Let me know how your mom doing. Does she live far away?

THanks for the inf. CharlieD..... I'd almost bet its on DH's computer already as he is the computer king...LOL! I'll have him see if he can open it when he gets home but I"m kind of doubting it though as it attempted to covert it but in the end it ended up a blank page.

Oh, lord, believe me I'd be there if I was needed. I have three sisters within a couple hours' drive, and right now my neice and an aunt are taking care of her. Daddy is very much alive and kicking and working his butt off to take care of her. As long as Mom insists she doesn't want me there (i've always been the car-taker until recent years), I know I need to stay away. I call often. And, as we can tell right now, stay awake nights worrying.
