image We spent all morning taking down the screen room, scrubbing/washing it all, drying it, folding it and putting it away.  We’ll be moving soon and it needs to come down.  We probably won’t put it back up at the other RV park because mosquito season appears to be over.

I hadn’t realized that I was being overly secretive about the possible job positions until Liz commented:

“Maybe if you would just fess up and tell us about this "everyone is connected" field, we would better understand... ;)”

My apologies.  I only need to keep it quiet as to the store names but not the positions.   Most recently, I worked at Colonial Suzuki as parts & service manager.  That’s my field.  The position was to be a parts and service director which was to be a step up for me.  The other position that I’m working on currently is for parts manager.

In this industry, it’s common for people to job hop, and know a lot of people, even at a competitor.  Gossip happens and within usually a week, it seems that the local industry knows what’s going on.  One of the positions I mentioned may be to replace someone who is not doing their job.  If they knew ahead of time, perhaps they’d sabotage.  Maybe the position is to be above someone who was “waiting” in line for a promotion.  Anyway, that’s why I can’t say.  Even with the position I didn’t get, why burn a bridge and blab about it? 

image I’m notorious for not giving an update on something I blogged about.  Back in August, I mentioned that we had went to our storage unit and couldn’t believe we saw patient files within easy grasp of hands.  At another visit, the file situation was the same but this time I told the storage unit and asked that they called the renter.  This is a HIPAA violation and carries a hefty fine.  This past week, we once again returned to our unit but this time, the files were all gone.  While I hope the storage unit didn’t lose the business, I’m hoping that patient files, complete with date of birth and social security numbers will be private.


In other tiring news, we napped today.  Get it?  Tiring.  Nap.  {sigh}  OK, well it’s the first time in who knows how long that I initiated a nap AND took a nap.  The problem?  I never fell asleep.  After 30 minutes, I gave up.

Dinner at home, a trip to Walmart, a dip in the hot tub, and then some vegetated internet surfing before bed.


  1. Hey Garret and Jim,
    By the way, the condo looks great. What are you going to do with the motorhome if you get the condo? Will you keep it for traveling?

  2. Can't sleep? You must be going through menopause too, Garret.

  3. We do plan to keep the RV. Being so far South in Florida, it may not be feasible for vacations but at minimum we'd love to do weekend getaways.

    You need to pursue a position designing web pages. You are so talented. I don't ever see anyone else that cleaver!!!

  5. So any news on job yet? I'm keeping my fingers (and various other extremities) crossed for you.


  6. No word. :-( Jim has some leads.

    Thanks Essman
