Okay, so the title of this post is a bit strange, and probably not fitting. It's what popped into my head. You see, I have my cell phone service through U.S. Cellular. And they have been doing all these changes....new plans, new rules for phone trade-ins, new this, new that. They call it the Belief Project. I know very little about the details of these changes, really. But having a sister-in-law that works for U.S. Cellular, I have been informed that these changes, in an essence, do offer better service to customers, but also increase opportunities for the company to generate a great deal more revenue. The company advertised changes, but kept the details a bit hush-hush till the beginning of this month when the changes went into effect.
Well, I said all that to say this. My big changes are coming. I start my new position on Monday. Actually, I got a phone call this morning from my new boss. I have to drive to Charlotte Sunday night. I will have some training Monday and part of Tuesday. It's about a six hour drive, so I will have to get a motel room for a couple of nights. Of course, all this comes out of my pocket till I submit an expense report. Yeah!! Cough! Cough! I must say, I am a bit nervous. I haven't had a lot of details about this job, and I will be starting in a couple of days. I just got the call this morning about going to Charlotte first of next week. But I won't even have the details to where I need to go or what time till later this afternoon. I'm anxious, to say the least, but excited all the same. What if I hate this job? It's not like I can just walk back and take my old job back. There have already been 50+ applications. Oddly enough, many of them came through my office, so I've seen who some of the candidates for my replacement are. Some were impressive, over-qualified in my opinion, and some were, shall we say, completely unexperienced. But people need a job. And I'm sure there are ones out there desperate enough they will apply for any job. I'd probably do the same.
That's that. The chickens are doing great. I had three loosies. There were three Black Austrolorps that hatched out early this summer. I just let them free range from the time they hatched under their mama. I decided that it's time to wrangle them up since a neighbor complained about them scratching in his garden. I managed to catch two, but the third got wise and wouldn't come near me. I'll have to give it another shot this evening. I should have tried last night after the thing roosted, but I was too tired.
Not sure what the plans are for the weekend yet. Mike mentioned going out to Applebee's for dinner Friday night. My sister said she was taking her kids to the county fair Friday evening. She said Tony won't ride certain rides with her, and since she had her baby in July she wants to do all the stuff she couldn't do when she was pregnant. So, that's something else to consider. Other than that, that's the latest in a nut shell!
