Alternachicks - Missing in Action

View Full Version : Missing in Action

10-17-2006, 07:56 PM
Well hello again alternachickies... I don't think I've been on this site for quite some time (a couple years!) but here I am again. :) I see a few familiar names! Anyway I am back at losing weight again and recently joined weight watchers and lost 5.4 pounds my first week. The only good thing to say is that I have managed to successfully keep off the weight I originally lost with the support of alternachicks... around 16 or so pounds. The other 15 or so I keep gaining and losing. So thought I would come back and rejoin this fun group for support, encouragement, and laughs. :dance:

Hi Squeak and Mauv! So is Ms. Ellis lurking these forums or is she missing in action too?

Geez its kind of quiet around here. C'mon folks we are all still fat so lets chat!

I think Ellis is lurking up in the Chicks in Control section.

I am here but, a little preoccupied. I found out yesterday afternoon, I got the job I was going for. I am moving in about 3 weeks!

Congratulations Squeaker!!!!!! :bravo:

Wow Squeak congratulations! Hey Mauv... did you ever find a job in government?

Still working on it! :crossed: :D It's a long slow process but I am making some headway. Wrote some entrance tests & passed. Wrote the language test and passed - I'm now officially bilingual! Mais oui!

Now I'm just waiting to hear something from them. It takes a few months after you have applied for a job to actually get it or get into a pool for it.

Wow very impressive with the language... what kind of job are you looking for specifically?

10-19-2006, 05:14 PM
Administrative or legal assistant.

I'm interested in the federal government as they pay well, have benefits, pension plan etc.

Thanks Mauvais & Sojo!

I am really excited. Just a bit overwhelmed with everything I now have 3 weeks to do.
