Okay, Hillshire Brands told me I'd be working 6-7 days a week, 8-10 hours a shift, in what amounts to a meat packing job. The interviewer warned me about the job conditions, at which I shrugged. Either way, I will know next week.

Wow, I've just read this entire thread, over a year's worth of stuff.
I hope things are well with each and every one of you.
And keep me in your thoughts, I've got a benign mass in my lower abdomen (a uterine fibroid) that is large enough to be pressing on other organs (bladder, rectum) and my sciatic nerve, and causing me much trouble at the moon time, and I have an appointment with a urogynecologist to figure out what to do about it come the end of the month.
We lost our "baby" guinea pig Brendan yesterday to old age (he was 5 2/3 years old, we've had him since he was a month old). He died in my arms. We are both heartbroken, and Mr. Badger is a very tenderhearted soul, he had a hard time keeping his composure at work. We are watching our other pig to see if he will do OK as a solo or if he will need companionship. (We originally got Patrick because Brendan was too socialized to us, and would want to be all over us when we'd come home from work. They didn't hate each other, but tolerated each other, and Patrick would pester Brendan for fun.)
But my band won their first competition in years on Saturday, winning Grade 4 and Best Pipe Band on the day at Wisconsin Highland Games. A shocking but vindicating result after a band exodus a few years ago which left me, the bass drummer, as drum sergeant and borrowing drummers from St. John's Northwestern Military Academy.
ShirtlessBob, I get your struggles with depression and anxiety totally. I also get your financial struggles. I hope all is well.
And yes, *bleep* cancer.

4.5 years ago I received a lot of support on a predecessor to this thread when my wife of 38 years died. Yesterday I married a wonderful woman who in addition to liking sailing, golf and skiing, LOVES college hockey. There is always hope. Life is good!

Just got off the phone with Pine Rest. Did not get the job I interviewed for, but was told that my name/information would be forwarded to other departments around the Pine Rest campus.
So I have very mixed feelings right now...
But in terms of the job I do have, I might have just fallen into full time. One cart collector moved, and two more are moving up within the store, leaving me and one other person. The other person can't take more hours because of school, so I am hearing talk of getting full time hours. I should know more about that situation in a couple days. So... lucky bounce?
Good luck with that, and it's nice to know that the extra hours are the result of promotions rather than turnover.But in terms of the job I do have, I might have just fallen into full time.

Friend of mine who is like a brother to me found out he had cancer last Friday. Today some of the biopsy results came back and he has metastatic lung cancer or in other words advanced cancer. 55 years old with 2 kids and a wife of 25 years. Would appreciate if you could mention him in your prayers. Thanks.
