It went well I think. I will know by the beginning of next week. The manager that interviewed me just finished treatment for prostate cancer. He is a very very nice man. He said it is still bothering him (emotionally) and I said I don't think we ever forget about it. I told him how I have felt silver lining of the cloud though, also, and feel I have changed in some ways for the better. I know you all know what I mean. I would have loved to talk to him more about it but of course that was not why I was there. This is for a job in the mail room at Battelle, Pacific Nortwest National Laboratories (PNNL) . I is not as hard as what I did at the post office,  there I had to be able to lift 70 lbs. There are 5 employees under him, and they all seemed very nice. Also, at this company everyone gets a chance at promotions, which I would like to be able to be a secretary or something where I can sit more. The standing kills my back. In fact MOST things kill my back so I am hoping I can do this. I think I can, I think I can... lol. I saw the ad through worksource and thought maybe I should give it a try. I have been having a real confidence issue lately and maybe this will help. eyes
Next week on Wednesday I go and have the cortisone shots in my back. I have heard some say the really hurt and others did ok...
Well, I wanted to say HI and give everyone a (((((HUG))))). I miss you all!!
L&H, Gail

I want to wish you good luck about the job.  The cortisone shots will make your back feel so much better. 

Miss you too.

I'm so glad you're getting back in the game.  I hope it turns out just the way you want it to.  I was a secretary for a while.  It was fun.  If that's what you want, go for it!
You just keep on doing great things for yourself and others, and your confidence can't help but go up.  It would be too inconsistant otherwize.
My interview's on Friday in Maine.  I hope I do as well as you did.

Best of luck to you with the job! I am sure that your interviewer could see what a great person you are just by chatting with you for a LITTLE while!

Also, I hope the cortisone shots help you. They did help me for awhile.

God Bless,
PS. How is Rita doing? I haven't seen her here for awhile.

Good luck!  I hope you get it, if that's what you want.  I just started a new job myself.  I am temping with Kaiser Permanente.  It's good so far.  More money and weekends off (I had Tue/Wed off since last Dec.).  I need the flexibility for school.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
L & H,
