Hello to all my iVillage friends! I've been away for a while I know. But I've been busy.
In February I started a new job- still doing NYS WC Claims- but with a different company. I had been laid off from my old company (after 36yrs) and had to go job hunting! I was not looking forward to that but I got lucky- you see the Company I was with was laying off a number of us in stages - one of the guys that had left last October had inteviewed with a Company for an adjusters job but did not take the offer- but he contacted me about the position - so I went for it and was hired I left my old job on 2/11 and started my new job on 2/22! I am now in Downtown, Buffalo, which is different too after so many years but I am liking my new position! I like the work, I like the people so it all worked out for the best.
DH and I are still showing our dogs- we actually are doing more with them than before, we had a bit of a glitch this year because with my new job- I lost a lot of vacation time! but we're working around that. After 8/22 I am entitled to some vacation days so in October we are taking some time to drive down to PA for a big dog show & to see DD & DS . Erika and Tom still live and work in PA - Erika for Wegmans and Tom for AT&T. They visited us in June for a long weekend - had a good time! Erika wants to take us out to a good seafood place - supposedly she is learning to drive- that ought to be something!
Now in the evenings I have some extra time to come back & visit iVillage. Seems like not to long ago I was posting under Middle School, High School & College - all the drama and anxious times - yet it has all worked out. My kids are now young adutls (Erika turned 30 this year- yikes!!!) and doing well
