    Oh happy day!

    After being unemployed (and really not looking) since she left college, she was offered a job at a nursing home. She'll be doing housekeeping and laundry. She is over the moon with excitement about actually having some money and, maybe, some independence down the road.

    I'm not going to worry about the other shoe dropping. Just for now, I'm going to be happy for her.

    I told her today that all jobs are valuable and, your happiness in your work has everything to do with attitude. I hope, through this experience, she'll choose to go back to school. I know the earning potential for non-college grads isn't the best.

    I've been working her like crazy around the house since she moved in with me from her dad's. There, her only responsiblity was to empty the dishwasher! I told her that, if she approaches this job with the same attitude she had about scraping paint on the front porch (her 9-5 job here this week), she'd be a success.

    Cross fingers and toes!
