He got the job!

Shannon had to work today.  While he was gone, it gave me a chance to do laundry, clean and do some reading!

He had an interview earlier this week for a security supervisor position.  The position is part time and he would be in charge of 8 different sections!  He is still coughing and not feeling well, especially when he went into interview.  When he got back from his interview, he was sure he didn't do that well!

Today, when he reported for work, the HR lady gave him a piece of paper indicating he had to go in for a drug test, etc.  They offered him the position!  We're not sure of the exact pay, but we have a range.

Job Interview

Shannon is still sick.  He has it the worst.  I haven't been feeling well.  It's only my throat that bothers me and it makes me cough here and there, but that's about it. 

Shannon has a job interview this Thursday afternoon.  It's with the same company he is working for now.  The HR lady recommended him for this position he is interviewing for.  It's part time for a supervisor position, however, most of the supervisors that are part time are working full time hours!

Sick this week

Kyle was sick earlier this week, but well enough to go to school.  I've been mildly sick as well.  Shannon seems to have it the worst.  He must have the flu...  He's been coughing up a storm.  He was able to go to work, but had to leave early.

Since he's been working once a week or less since he's been hired, he's been asking for more hours.  Today, the HR lady said she needs to hire for several positions including full time, part time and supervisor openings!  She's going to call him in on Monday to interview!

It's fixed and carpet is dry!

Our water heater/wet carpet issues are fixed!  It first started last Saturday.  We didn't report it until Tuesday (because Monday was Labor Day).  They came by on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to fix it.  Each day, we thought it was fixed until it came time for showers.  After 3 hours of the plumber taking a look at it and finishing up putting the water heater back in, our problems are fixed!  They carpet guy came by to soak up all the excess water in the carpet and a few hours later, the carpet was DRY! 

The other day, I used my beloved Shark vacuum to clean and it soaked up some of the water.  Well, when I went to use it on Friday, it wouldn't work.  I cleaned every part of it that I could and realized that I needed to let it dry out.  I was finally able to vacuum today! 

Shannon is working all day today, so I am catching up on laundry and cleaning.  I am all caught up on my blog stuff too.

Wet spots on the carpet

We've been having problems with our carpet being wet near our water heater.  This happened earlier this year and they replaced the water heater and the wet carpet mess stopped.  It recently started again this past Saturday.  It was wet at the entrance to our bedroom and to our living room.  We have a big chunk of wet carpet near our bathroom which is across from our water heater.  The maintenance people came to fix it and they even had a carpet guy come out to remove the padding underneath the carpet. 

Well, the leaking started up again a few hours after they left.  It seems to get worse when we shower.

New backpack!

I really wanted to get Kyle a new backpack this year.  The one he's been using is one I bought 3 years ago at Goodwill.  I noticed recently that it had a hole in it, so I knew he needed a new one. 

We went to Target yesterday and bought a Disney's Cars backpack for 30% off the original price!  If we had bought the backpack two weeks ago, it would have been at the regular price.  I'm glad we waited.  I had been trying to find one at Walmart but I could never find where they are in the store. 

Luckily, Kyle easily accepted his new backpack and didn't fuss about using something new.
