Today is the shortest day of the year, tomorrow, the days will begin to lengthen.. and it's surprising how that one or two minutes of extra light will quickly make a difference...And on this shortest day of the year, I have had some news. On a "whim" a month or so back, I put in for a part time position at our local post office. I saw the "ad" in the lobby and it's only for 10-20 hours a week. I have always had "part time" jobs in my life, they- along with the dog training - have been a great help every so often in the financial part of this family, and I like "doing my part".. anywho, since the post office is three houses away from the farm (I can SO easily walk to work!!!) and I thought it would be a fun way to get to know the town folks and be a "face" in the community... I applied. The interview was the week before last, and last week I had to go for a "drug test" (welcome to the real world I guess) and today... I got the note that I will need to "report for training" on January 4th..... all of sudden I'm a bit nervous.. there's a lot to learn with the post office and I just hope my brain can take it all in.... time will tell I guess!!! so, something new again in my life, seems like I have had a lot of "new" in the past couple of years but the Good Lord has given me just so much time here on the earth and I want to take advantage of it all, and live my life to the fullest... including trying new things!!!!
