I promised to put a little graph on the blog showing how the donations were coming along and couldn’t. So I made a page but I don’t think anyone noticed it so…………….drum roll please!!
The grand total has come to $453!! net, so that is less the service charges and everything.
I have found a laptop I will be picking up tonight for $350, leaving $100 to go towards starting the new blog.
Thank you everyone who donated!! I am so excited about getting a laptop that has all it’s keys!!
I am going to dedicate the new laptop to blogging only and save my old one as storage for pics and research etc so I don’t bog it down with too much stuff. I am so happy and excited to type on a decent keyboard! It is going to make my life so much easier and writing the book will be possible. I just could not see trying to type a book on this old clunker with the mouse with a mind of it’s own. Now my capitals will be capitals!! no more i’s, there will only be capital I’s! That has to be symbolic!!
Another kind of exciting new event is; on Quora I am the top viewed expert on narcissism!!
I also had a job interview yesterday! and I think it went really well, I certainly enjoyed meeting the young woman who interviewed me. It was for the position of a House Keeping Supervisor in Whistler, and it comes with accommodation. It is run by a woman, her brother and his wife and they own 3 houses in Whistler that they rent out. The one I saw in person is a 10 bedroom, 10 bathroom gorgeous house and they have another two, plus one they just started renovations on, another 10 bedroom home.
It is a new position, they have been doing all themselves and have found it is getting too much so they wanted someone to oversee the housekeeping end but it turns out I have a lot of other skills I can contribute, such as landscaping, decorating for the seasons and even helping out with the renovations as a goffer or whatever they need.
I am really excited about the prospect and it would put me minutes from Kristofer, but there is one possible catch, Stella. They don’t allow pets in any of the houses and my suite is above the garage at one of the properties. She didn’t say no, but she did say she had to talk to her sister in law and I offered to bring Stella to meet them. I mean she is such a sweetheart, everyone would love her but I understand why it would be an issue.
I think though, even if I don’t get the position I can be a benefit to their business and have some ideas I would like to run by them. Work for them on a contract basis and get my own place to live. So I’m not dead in the water and I have a good feeling about it. I would share the website so you all could see the places, they are simply gorgeous!! but I can’t take a chance in case someone lurks.
I had another job interview yesterday for a live in caretaker for hostel in the town just before Whistler; Squamish, where we did the casino renovation. They want someone to come on board and work with them to get it up and running by spring 2016 and it was sounding really promising, I had all the experience they wanted and the right attitude BUT the minute I mentioned Stella the interview was over. And that one is definitely a live on site type position. I was really disappointed until I went to the interview in Whistler and then I got excited about that.
What ever happens i know it will work out the way it should. Good things are coming my way, it is just a matter of time.
i have so many ideas for decorating the houses for Christmas! I would be in heaven decorating 4 houses for Christmas!!
Also my mom came with me and Kris, her and I spent the day together which was really nice and hasn’t happened in a long time. We are probably going to have Christmas dinner in Whistler this year. There are enough beds at Kris’s and he said he will give up his room and sleep on the couch or spare room so grandma and grandpa can have his room with the ensuite etc. THAT made my mom happy! and eased her mind. Also we would go up a day before and have Xmas Eve and Christmas Day, even Boxing Day so it would be relaxing, no one would be doing all the cooking because Kris is an excellent cook. No gifts, just a nice big Christmas dinner with family and anyone who doesn’t have a place to go on Christmas Day.
Life just keeps getting better and better!! I am telling you. STAY NO CONTACT and you will find peace and joy in your life too!!
