Cardinals #1

I have noticed since the weather is starting to get nice, we have a pair of cardinals hanging around. They are pretty. I just figured they were lost. We have big dogs that bark at everything and scare everything away.

But, this morning, I noticed that the female is making a nest. In the tree right outside our back door of the garage. Right where the dogs go in and out. Right where we go in and out when working on the yard. In our ugly bush:

The female was carrying twigs and paper she found into the bush. Hopefully they will stay.

New Job

Well, I have been working for a couple of weeks with the recruiter and branch manager of Keybank. I have been waiting for them to get on with the process hoping I would get to the next step and hopefully get a job.

And, a couple of weeks ago, I got an email from Keybank. Next step complete.

A couple days after that, got a call to set up an interview. Next step complete.

Had the interview (I thought I did well) and had to W-A-I-T over the weekend to hear what to do next.

The following week, I spoke to them again. They extended an offer to me! I received a couple emails with information on what to do next (got to give a sample and get fingerprinted) and my start date is at the end of MAY!

I am so happy! I can't wait to start! I finally found a job! YAY!
