As for what is happening with my life now, well I need a job and a car! The car is in the works and I pick it up tonight - pictures to follow later! (I can't friggin' wait!) And due to my absence from the Calgary Health Region, I have been terminated. They could not afford to keep me on their casual list if I was going to be gone for a year. SO, I have to start from the bottom, with no seniority. I have made a couple calls and of course 2 of the 3 managers I want to talk to are on holidays till Monday. I have submitted my resume within the Alberta Health Services career website and have applied for a few jobs. The worst though, is I have no seniority, so anyone within the region, will most likely get the job over me. Boo. On the positive side, I have had a wide range of experience in home care, medical and surgical over the past 3 years. Also, once I can get a job, even a casual position, it will be easier for me to move around within the region. It is frustrating, but at the same time there is nothing I can do, so I am thankful that I am able to stay with my parents until things get all worked out.
As for Rob, he is still in England trying to do the same thing!!
Mom and dad just bought a new trailer, so weather pending, I think we will head out this weekend and test it out! I might as well take advantage of it while I can as once I start work, I get the joy of working weekends.
I have also started doing more cooking, well, I guess baking. Today I tried a granola bars recipe. I get frustrated at such the limited options I have at the grocery store, and I like to stay away from as many processed foods as possible. They are cooling on the stove at the moment and they look delicious!
