Oh my!  I hope she was encouraged at the responses she received today.  Employers recognize her skills and abilities in her chosen field and she has options!  So often hard working students are worried they put so much into their schooling and training and then nobody offers them a job.  I'll be praying she chooses the right one for her!  And to not worry through to the end!

um, actually compared to DD & DH, I'm a lightweight - seriously.  Of course maybe I've gotten less so after dealing with them and their "worst case" worries.  I think I've told her 3 or 4 times just pay the rent month to month - or put her stuff in storage & come home until she knows where she's going.   So she's out some $$, it's not like she's going to be homeless on the street or starve - we'll always help her if it's necessary.  It is very gratifying for her self-esteem to have a good response from the interviews.  She was "worried" that she'd spend this time & $$$$$ and not be able to find a job.  But it's looking like there is a definite demand even with the dicey health care situation.

I remember when my son was going through the same thing.  He put out several applications and interviewed with each.  He accepted one and two days later got a much better offer.  It was so hard for him to call the first place to tell them he changed his mind.  I forgot--what kind of job is she looking for? 

My younger daughter got a job as a lab aide making just enough to have enough. About 4 months in she got a call from a recruiter for a job as a microbiologist for a different company. I encouraged her to just check it out. Long story short she got an amazing job making more than twice the first job in industry. When she explained it to her current supervisor the lady understood and wished her well.

I just had one of those 'when you are looking for something else and find something that you knew you had and have been looking for for a lonnnngggg time' events just a few minutes ago...

I was looking for a gift box for a wedding present....did not find the right size...But did find my collection of Invisfil bobbins and threads that I have been looking for for over a year! One of my sewing buddies and I bought two each of the 6 spool collections (they were pretty pricey even when we bought them a number of years ago.) Two boxes are pastels, two boxes are jewel tones. She took all of them and ran bobbins off each each of us have half a spool of the ones we bought and a bobbin of the ones we didn't. Cannot believe where they does that happen?!! Had my Sewline glue pen and my Bohin fabric pencils in there too. I must have been doing some applique project and put all the tools in the bag, then stuffed the bag in my gift bag storage. What possessed me to put it there, we will never know.

Cannot tell you how many times I went thru all my project bags and all the nooks and crannies in my sewing room, looking for them.
