Good evening, friends!!

I just got back from my meeting with a broker. It went very well!! I got a lot of information to think about, and the office was very nice. Everyone that I met was kind.

They offered me a job!

Now, I have a lot to mull over =]

I also plan on speaking with a few other brokers, but I have a feeling I'll go with the one I met today. They are a great company, and have a lot of incentives. And a wonderful training & mentoring program!!

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts today!!

Off to make dinner, I am famished!

Hope you're all having a great evening so far!

xx

I have ask, but has anyone had a cortisone shot before?

I had knee surgery in April and I have been still feeling some pain in it, especially when I do any kind of physical activity. So, I went back to the doc's yesterday, he gives me this shot in my knee joint, and I'm telling you, today I feel great!!!!

That was some good stuff, because it worked (at least for now). I also have to get a special brace made up for it that shifts the weight from the bad side of my knee, to the good side of it. So, I asked him, "what happens when that side wears out?" "When you get older, you'll most likely need a knee replacement! Oh by the way, "Welcome to middle age!"

I guess that was his bedside humor.....

To be honest, the weather here in Ottawa currently feels like we are in those double digits. Yes, temperatures are in the lower 20s/mid 60s, which makes it seem like mid-September! It's not quite summer weather, but I will take a brief break from the heat for now!

Have a great Christmas in July, everyone! Only five months remain until the big day! So much to happen between now and then, including the start of the 2013 Christmas Blossoms Thread.... which may only be two months away. Oh, the excitement!! Enjoy your Thursdays!
Brent, those temps to me sound fantastic...

I would be outside, making a bonfire in the pit, putting some wings, potato's and sausages on the stainless steel grate I had made for that and then I'd sit back, lookup at the stars and wonder; "what all the poor people are up to....." Yes indeedy, at that moment in life, I'm a rich man....

Congratulations on the offer!

By all means speak with the other brokers, then go with your gut. Whatever happens, you have that offer in your bag!
