Last week Holly decided that it was time to get her hair cut. I made an appointment and bought her a book of hairstyles. She chose a style that I love but never imagined her wearing.

After all was said and done...Holly is thrilled with her new "do".

Yesterday the hairstylist got her workout in for the day just from cutting all of Holly's chocolate locks.

Holly is donating a foot of hair to "Locks of Love". I'm so proud of her...

It's Just a Thought....

I know it's been a while but after quitting my job, I have found lots of things to do other than sitting in front of a computer all day long.

Today I had an interview with a job placement agency. I was told that I am over qualified, had too many years experience and there are no positions open that she could offer. I gave her a minimum amount that I would accept for salary and that sunk my ship even deeper....Oh, but according to the agent, I have excellent interviewing skills...go figure and no jobs are available - hahahaha what a joke!

The job I was at had me feeling worthless, not needed....now, I feel like I've hit rock bottom....excuse me miss you have a great resume and qualifications however, we are unable to assist you at this time.

I relayed all this to hubby and ended with the dreaded what if question. His answer was...you might have to apply at Wal-Mart. Nothing is wrong with the people who takes care of us in the retail business....it's just that I haven't done something like that in over 20 years...I'm not saying that I'm better than that it's just that once you've established a career you kind of expect to stay in that field. Even if you do have to make a stand and say enough...I'm not going to be a door mat any more!

On a positive note....I have excellent interviewing skills
