YAY for Girls Weekend!!!!

Not much has been going on the last few days. Still unemployed...still looking for work. I am getting pretty frustrated because it seems like everything I send my resume to ends up in someway being some sort of scam. It seems like there are just more and more people preying on the people who are struggling and it just is not right. Everyone says send me your credit report and then we will set up an interview. Yeah right sure let me just send you all my personal info and I have no idea who you are...let me get right on that. Every time I tell them before I do that could they please answer a few questions such as, what company is this? where are you located? and so on...I get no response. They are just hoping someone will blindly send them the requested information and then they steal their ID. Please anyone out their reading this...DO NOT FALL FOR THIS CRAP. If ANYONE asks you for this information all you have to do is do a search on their name and 99% of the time you will see many entries from people who got the same email requesting the same stuff and turned out to be a scam. I am sure most people know this but just in case I wanted to do a Public Service Announcement! With so much stuff on the internet you really need to protect yourself. Ask questions and if they are legitimate they will have no problem answering your questions and if they do have a problem then you do not want to work with them anyway. Ok I am done for now.

Anyway, I am getting ready for a girls weekend at the lake. Lots of drinking, eating, playing cards and just plain old fun! I can not wait! I love this place. We usually do this at least once a year. It is only about an hour away but it feels like you are hundreds or thousands of miles away. I think when you enter the lake area they have a mind eraser or something because no matter how stressed out or what I have going on in my life, as soon as I enter I forget all about it. I swear sometimes I sit there and try to figure out what the heck I was stressed out about. I love it! I wish I could stay there all the time. It is also very nice to get together with these friends because they do not get much time to be with just the girls. They both have 3 kids a piece and are hard working, busy moms. When they get up there it let all loose and have fun.I can't wait!!!!

So I will not be around until late Sunday or Monday. I will catch up then. I hope you all have a great weekend! Don't forget if you want to enter the Yoga DVD giveaway just comment on my last post. See ya later!

Hope you have a great girls weekend. It sounds like fun.
You are so right about all the scams. I've noticed them in looking for places to live the last year or so. Something that looks really good but no phone number and it's usually a scam.

I miss my girlfriends and girls night out. We did meet once a year for two years, but then everyone went their separate ways :(

Glad you can get away and have some fun with the girls!! Sounds like it would be a blast :)

I hope you had a WONDERFUL vacation! You deserve some time away, not having to think about job and IF crap.

Sorry to hear about your job hunting woes. Suckage. A girls weekend is just what's needed. Sounds awesome!

People suck! That's all I can say. I guess some people think that everyone is stupid but I guess all it takes is a few desperate souls that are willing to send them their info. I am going on a girls week to the Poconos next week and cannot wait. It's good to get away from it all once in awhile. I am new to your blog and blogging myself. I have left an award for you over on my blog. Enjoy. Hope you had a good trip!

I hope your girls weekend was FABULOUS and that you have tons of fodder for show & tell.

Thanks for all your kindness toward me these last 2 weeks (and always).
