Last Wednesday I went to my beautician ( 16 years I have been going to her) for a hair cut that was 3 or 4 months over due ! She asks me if I am working and I respond no. She continues says she has a client who works for the school board and they need help in the cafeteria schools all over escambia county. I immediately lit up because I love children, I had other thoughts running through my head, anyways, my friend calls her client, tells her she has someone and puts me on the phone with her. I get all the details to meet with her. I live in Pensacola, Florida where all the schools were going to shut down the next day due to low temperatures, roads having ice, so I would meet the following day Friday.
So this past Monday I had an appointment that was set up to get fingerprinted, and a photo at a ups store, it was a cost to me of $ 81.00 ! What is wrong with this picture ? It should not matter who you go to work for, the responsibility is on the employer who hires employees. The UPS store fingerprinted all my fingers . I got the results back within a couple hours the HR department of the school district of Escambia county sent me an email with a confirmation that I was cleared. now I just have to take a drug test. The process takes like ten days for all your info to be cleared, before you start It is a shame there is such convoluted red tape, extortion of money, I can not wait for the system to change.
I woke up sore this am 01/24/18. Yesterday I was a busy bee. I did some house chores, then I put some rubbing compound on my car, honda, that has a million scratches that are coming out of no where. I have not driven in a while, and I am not a destructive driver. I do the buffing to preserve the paint, I am not a flashy person, I like practicality, functionality and to preserve things as long as I can. I do not like to be wasteful, and I do not buy a lot of junk. I bought the compound and a bottle of liquid wax, well the bottle of liquid wax fell to the floor putting two holes in it, leaking all its fluids to the ground. I will have to buy a new one. The plan was after applying various areas of the rub, I was going to take my car to a car wash and then apply the liquid wax myself. So no biggie, will have to buy another bottle. So after I finished buffing the car, I vacuumed it inside. Then I moved on to trimming the aztec grass in the front yard. I did landscaping for two years, it is getting to be that time to trim everything back. I love all season, however when I go walking and I get to see all the plants, trees bushes coming back to green, I simply love it, it brings such joy to me.
