I finished my first day at ARRIS

I'm home from my first day at ARRIS in Beaverton. It is nice to be working again--and my benefits begin tomorrow, so that's good news, too, especially with having a family that needs medical coverage.

I ate lunch today at the Old Spaghetti Factory with some of my friends who are also Serena Alumnis. Most of us already have new jobs in the pipe, so our layoff hasn't had too much of a long term negative effect.

James and I have multimedia duty at Pleasant Valley Church tomorrow.

I got a job!

I'll be starting on February 29 at Arris in Beaverton. I'll get to relax some this week. Looking for work, interviewing, etc., are very stressful, at least to me.

The PAA girls are over at Burns playing basketball tonight against the Hilanders. Go Cougars! The winners tonight move on to the state tournament.

PAA Girls won last night versus OES.

In their first playoff game, against Oregon Episcopal School, PAA won by 5 points in a hard fought basketball game. Hopefully, they'll continue the winning ways against Warrenton. Go Cougars.

I've had several phone interviews and some follow up interviews, but so far, no offers. I know that God will take care of me and my family.

Another week is done

On Tuesday, I had an interview with a company in downtown Portland. I think that it went well, but I'm always afraid to get my hopes up too high.

Thursday evening, I went over to Oregon Episcopal School to watch the PAA girls play. It was a good game, with PAA coming out on top. Tonight, PAA plays at home against Warrenton. If the Cougars win, they'll be in second place in their league.

Last night was the first meeting of Revelation Speaks Hope at the Oregon Convention Center. It was a good meeting with a good turnout.

Tomorrow, we're going over to a friend's house to watch the Super Bowl--at least the guys, anyhow. The girls are going to be watch chick flicks! I don't have a strong favorite between the Patriots and the Giants, but I'll probably cheer for New England, since they are the AFC team.
