Disappointed in Nova Scotia

Hi all,

Well I am disappointed but not discouraged. I did not get the job that I interviewed for. Oh well life goes on right? Bigger and better things await. I had been so tied up with doing research and creating a webpage that I forgot to blog. I guess it is their loss as I was almost completely absorbed in fundraising ideas, the webpage and how I could achieve a self sustaining result for that place. I actually think that I came up with the answers and now they will never know. At some point - you just have to say - f it. All the information that I have gathered for fundraising might come in useful to another position so I will keep it under wraps until then.

Smile like your guilty! I still have the library.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi all,

I want to wish all the mother's out there a very Happy Mother's Day. I do not live close by my children but that does not mean that they are out of my heart. I miss them all the time, and think about them more than that. We do have internet, facebook, webcam and a telephone and I still don't hear from them that often. I always said that I did not want to be a medling mother or mother in law as I have seen in the past with various people. My choice was to move away where I could live debt free (with the intensions) to visit my children once a year. But circumstances did not allow that to happen and I am sad. It has been over 5 years since I hugged my children and seen my grandchildren. It is the hardest thing not to be able to grab a hug when you want to.

To my children -
My arms are always around you even though we are miles apart.
I gave you life and independence and set you on your path
You gave me beautiful grandchildren that will be forever in my heart
I can not be there with you - but pictures would be nice, so you can do the math
A picture is worth a thousand words or so I have been told
It would give me bragging rights and makes me feel so full
I can only give you words, I know that is so bold
I just want you to know that "I love you all"

So for all the mother's out there, hug your children close to your heart and whatever the circumstances are let them know that they are always your children.

Smile like your guilty! Happy Mothers Day

I've been offered!

Hi all,

Sorry that I have not wrote on this blog for a little while. I have been busy concentrating on other matters. I was offered a bigger and better position but not with the library. I really love and enjoy working with the library and all the people and I want to continue to do so, but the new position gives me greater responsibility, better pay and more prestige with alot more work involved>>. Is it wrong? There is one problem that I can see right off. This offer is only good for the summer months. You get laid off for the winter and I hate being idle. Can I do both jobs - possibly yes. I work 3 days a week at the library for 5 hours each day. I could fill in my days and time off with the new position and take 2 more days to put towards the new position. It would mean, for me, working 7 days per week. What does everyone say? You can sleep when your dead. I am torn... what to do? The position has not become official as yet - but I know that I am educated and trained enough to do it, possibly with blinders on.  Would it be too much for me working 7 days a week? There would be an end, it is not like it would go on forever. What to do? What to do?

Smile like your guilty! You just might be.
