at work to post just a short bit. I haven't been to LJ in a while and
I do not know why. I have been quite busy with finishing my degree
and that will end sometime the begining of next year. I also am working ful time
at Gillette Children's hospital and still making jewelry and doing shows, conventions, etc.
I will be at Spanish Wine Festival this Saturday at the St. Croix Winery in Wisconsin.
That should be a lot of fun.
Anyway. I have to go back to work and tonight I have homework and making sparkly fun stuff.
Maybe some WOW if I can fit it in......
So I got a job last week after a year and a half or more of searching. It seemed like a good thing. The pay was a bit low, but they were willing to be flexible once in a while so I cold still do some conventions and art shows with the jewelry.
It was described as a desk job, dispatching, paperwork, exec assist type stuff.
Towards the end of last week they started talking about me having to lift parts , boxes,and equipment.
This was not even in the job description. I told them that I have a back injury and can't lift more than 20lbs from the floor.
When I came to work this morning they told me I was being let go since I can't lift and they can't work around it.
So...let go for a disability...lovely....
Ah, back to the search...
Whoa, fun, tired, busy.......
I had a great time being on the one panel I did. I hope that in the future there will be more I will feel I could add to.
I also had a great time playing Bellatrix LaStrange. She is such a fun bad guy to play.
I also enjoyed the time playing Mrs. Wonka in the Wonka room party.
It was lovely to see everyone.
Hope you all had a good time too.
I have been applying to quite a few positions. This is only different than it has been of late becuse now there seem to be more positions to apply to. I had an interview last week and am hoping to be called back. The hard part is that I am so overqualified for a lot of what is available.
We will see........I am sure the right position will come along.
I am packing tonight for Demicon. This will be the first away from home con that I will be doing without Daniel. He will be at Springcon.
I am trying to pack accordingly, read that lighter, but it's not working.
I have some piratey garb since the theme is pirates. I also made pirate inspired jewelry.
Everyone who makes a purchase gets free pirate loot.
I am looking forward to having fun and am traveling down with a friend and sharing a room with him.
It should be a good time.
I have been finding that heat helps somewhat with the leg issues.
Hot baths and a hot pad are great comforts.
I am also loving baths as they are almost the only time my legs feel (mostly) normal.
I am out of lush, which sucks.
Anyone have a good line on Lush Bath Bombs?......I barter......
I also need a recliner so I can sit comfortably with my legs up.
If anyone knows of one being given away or that is very cheap please let me know.
