Thanks guys for all your suggestions. I did hear back from one of my friends and she said Fri. may work for her to go out to eat as long as we go somewhere she can get something other than meat as it is Lent. I only hope she does not bring up politics as we disagree on most things in that arena and my job search. I have been out of a job since the end of July. She has been out of work since last April. I just finshed a 2 1/2 month temp. job. At one point last fall, I made the comment about
a job possibility a temp. co. had but it was til 7pm and I am going to school to get my 2 yr. degree and she actually told me to drop out of school til I find a job so I dont have to turn down something because of the schedueling. She has not one time applied for a job since she lost her job. She says she does not want to because if she gets a job her parents (she lives at home with them) won't eat during the day and how she has to do these things for her parents. Well, I would like to know what her parents did when she was working. Personally I do not think she has any right to tell me how to job hunt when she refuses to at all. Anyway that is getting off the subject except I may say something if she brings it up. And it may not be very nice. Anyway, any get togethers would have to be going out. Trust me, I do not want to kill off anyone by my cooking!!! I have talked to my best friend who is part of the group. The problem is that she is also best friends with the one gal that I don't get along with that well. They have been friends since childhood. I do try to go the high road when talking about
her friend. I do listen to my friends but alot of times I am just not in a real happy place.
