Go for it. Don't do like I did and stay in a job I came to ''hate". I still thank God everyday that I am now retired.

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

I gotta tell ya - I'm excited this evening. I was finally able to meet with the nursing home people today. The woman who interviewed me has been so wary of me, right from the start. Looking at my resume she sees that I am about to make a huge change in my life & she's not convinced that I really want to do this. I tried to tell her that this is not being done on a whim - that I've been kicking this around for a long, long time & I am ready to jump now. If I don't end up there, my goal is to be cooking somewhere by the end of the year. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing - she said I would probably hear something one way or the other by tomorrow. I am less nervous since Vera Blue gave me some really good leads for the kind of work I want to do. If I don't get the job at the nursing home, I feel like there's still hope for me.

The job sounds like exactly what I'm looking for. I would be preparing the evening meal for 100 people pretty much by myself. The lunch meal is the largest meal of the day at this place so I would be concentrating on soups, sandwiches, mac & cheese, that kind of thing. That's where I'm strongest.

Everyone who's been pulling for me - I feel it - please keep pulling for me just a little bit longer. We're gonna get there!

I can't even believe that someone might be paying me to cook & I won't even have to wash the dishes & pots & pans!!! How great is that?!?!

I'm all about the food!
