I volunteer at my daughters school three days a week but they are getting rid of people so I doubt they'll hire anyone. I did get an email back from an animal hospital looking for a receptionist part time to full time, they said their very interested since I worked in a vet office for four years, I have to call them today.

sorry about my previous rant, I'm not depressed just overly stressed and now days doctors just want give you some pills and label you and send you on your way.

It's an easy way out for doctors just to give you pills and what do they know anyway! Sometimes you just need someone to talk to and to listen to you.

Don't rule out the Prozac... It really helped me at one point, despite my skepticism. If it doesn't work (and you need to give it 3 or 4 weeks to kick in), then absolutely forget about it. But from first hand knowledge I know that talking about stuff sometimes actually makes me more anxious, stressed and depressed. And there's scads of scientific evidence linking depression to biochemistry. Is Prozac the right medication or is medication right? Depends utterly on the individual.

In the meantime, shall keep fingers & toes crossed for you re the job. It sounds as if it would be a great fit, and maybe down the road could become full time, if that's what you need. Bonne chance!

I've lost the garnet crucifix my mother left to me. I don't think it was all that valuable but it had huge sentimental value. It was the one thing I would have wanted to save in a house fire. I am so angry with myself for not taking better care of it.

There is just a chance I put it down somewhere silly and will recover it, but I am not hopeful.

Stop looking for it, Miss Moppet, and it will turn up where you least expect to find it!!

I do that with my glasses all the time, hence the reason why I have three pairs as I am always putting them down and forgetting where I put them! I'm getting to the age where, even though I'm short-sighted, I have to take them off to read which causes so many problems! And probably the reason why I don't wear my contact lenses as much as I used to do (only when I go out really), as I find it a little difficult to focus with them in. :rolleyes:

Oh dear, I'm at the stage too - when I told my optician about it he just said to get reading glasses to wear WITH the contacts, noooooo! :eek:

Anyway, Miss M, as Vanessa says, stop looking for it for a while and you might remember somewhere that you haven't looked yet, or it might well just turn up unexpectedly. I do hope you find it though.

Sorry to hear that Miss Moppet. You don't think that pesky Melusine Granger might have ...........? :confused:
