Alright, on the premise that the large numbers in the yearly DYK thread may be putting people off a bit, I've taken the suggestion of going back to a monthly thread.

Tracy, you got 'dis! You wouldn't have been recommended for the job if you couldn't do it! Go for it. You've been so unhappy, you would very upset with yourself later if you didn't try. No regrets girl!

The posting is open til next Tuesday, I will sit down maybe Wednesday evening when all the kids are asleep and gone and do the application process. It's quite an involved process, you don't just submit a resume, you have to type in everything into the online application and then fill out a questionnaire of qualifications. You'd think it being the state and already paying below market value, they woldn't make the application process as excruciating as it is. It wasn't like this when I applied 6 1/2 years ago.

You're right ami, would be upset with myself. I keep waiting for the magic fairy to come along and make my life better... But apparently she's on vacation or something. LOL! I know I need to put in the work myself or it's not going to go anywhere, my brother and you guys have given me a great pep talk, thanks!!

Glad you're going to apply. Good luck! Oh, and if you run into that fairy that magically makes life better, please point her toward my life. I think she's at a private party with the kitchen fairy and the laundry fairy. They all seem to be MIA. :)

yes, the kitchen fairy has definitely, completely disappeared on me also!! The dishwasher is full of clean dishes at the moment and the sink is piled high with dirty ones at my house. I was just so tired last night when I got home, and god forbid anyone else actually know how to do it themselves! sigh...

Guess what! The kitchen fairy made a brief visit to our house this morning! Dh cleared off the kitchen table, unloaded one rack of the dishwasher, and set the breakfast table!!! I didn't ask at all! Hooray!

Hooray for you!!! I'd like to think mine will be arriving soon, but I'm not holding my breath. I need to send a reminder text to Jordyn that she is still responsible for cleaning the main bathroom before she leaves for NYC in the morning. If she doesn't, she may come home to a lot less personal products...

I'm about ready to do the same with Megan. Our counter is full of hair doo dads, flat iron spray, toothpaste tubes, brushes, etc.
