are you ready for sum football!

  it's late afternoon   in about 30mins, football will begin   officially for the college game   still preseason for the pros    i have about 5 games to choose from tonite   which one will i choose?   doesn't matter really for i'll be busy doin' other things once play starts....

but this entry is about a new job possibility for me    it arrived on my doorstep today   i went to lunch with Marsha today   she's our Financial Coordinator at our church (Albuquerque for Spiritual Living)   somehow we got to chatting about my job and i told her i liked it EXCEPT for one thing=having SID hanging over our heads setting up sting operations    well, Marsha then proceeded to tell me about 3 job opportunities at church that just opened up   one being the Night Security Angel (or officer)   basically having someone there in the evening to assist others that are there and most importantly insure the church is securely locked up once everyone is gone   she told me the pay   the hours, the job description   soooo...after lunch i immediately went to Ellen, the church administrator and talked to her   got an application...came home filled it out....went back and turned it in   it's a perfect job for me   and my availability is ideal for the church as well   i know some of the duties already since i volunteered for a year there, over a year ago   Ellen was really happy that i applied   another friend there too was happy i applied   it'll be a great way to get back to my community there too   i know now's the time to return   they've missed me and i've missed them  (although i do need my time off from them at times)   anyways, i feel pretty damn good about it   if it wasn't for SID, i'd stay where i am   but being at the church will be even better   i also told them i'm available for the weekends and i'm flexible   anyways, i'm happy just for the opportunity   in addition to this job, there is the Adult Ed Coordinator which i may apply and do it as a volunteer  the pay is really minimal on it, $5 per student that completes a class   i'd do it just for the experience of it all   it would be good too for becoming a practitioner at church, continuing giving to my church community    i just need to make sure i don't take on more than my illness can handle   the "old" me keeps saying i can do it all   the illness keeps tellin me to slow my ass down   IT'S ALL GOOD!!!   slow allows the enjoying the present moment in time....

So glad that you got wind of this job............sounds perfect.  No, I am NOT ready for football, but I know you are. I found it is the perfect time to go shopping.  Anne
