duck love and cross your fingers I get the job!
My sister, brothers and Mom send ducks back and forth or put them in weird places for the others to find. Since I am 2000 miles away..I take the ducks to places I like and take pics on the phone and send them to my sister who updates everyone on where some of the rubber ducky family is. It is pretty random. You never know where or when one will appear. I took one to the Colorado Rockies games this summer and took pics with the marquee in the background. My poor Hubby was embarrassed!I also took one camping. I take a little one in my purse or pocket..just in case! All in goofy fun. My Dad would have loved this game. He was a great practical joker. It keeps us laughing. Here are 2 pics I took..one day in 40 degrees they went out to sun themselves on the deck..the next day they had to wade through 4 inches of snow..such is the life of ducks in Utah. Have a great weekend!
By the way..I had a job interview yesterday!!! The first one I have been able to get for over a year. A friend's son in law works for a plumbing supply and they need a customer service phone person. She gave me his email and I sent him my skimpy resume (my art resume is so much more interesting!). The company called on Thursday. I went in on Friday and hopefully can get a call back. They said there were 50 applicants they were looking at and if we don't get a call back by Wednesday next week then we are not being considered. I do want a call back. It pays $10.00 an hour to start and after 6 months you can get health insurance, paid vacations, paid holidays. I have never had a job with benefits so it would be awesome. Plus it is an easy drive, and I could go to my studio from there. I could afford my studio, I could pay my bills and let Hubby off the hook. I will admit that a 40 hour week will be a shock to the system. I haven't worked a 40 hour week for a long time. And to be honest. I have enjoyed not working..but the money pinch is hard to deal with so I need to suck it up and go back to work. Don't think I am lazy. I have worked since I was 12 yrs. old. I ran a dog grooming business when I was raising toddlers so I could be home. I worked 2 jobs when Hubby lost his job. I know how to work and am very reliable..but I feel old and tired and wish I could just do art. Still..cross your fingers that I get this job..it could be fun..talking on the phone is my forte! And I could get paid! Now go and have that great weekend!
