Just thought I'd wish you a happy birthday too. :) You don't know me, but I figured if your birthday falls on the Super Bowl day, you need as many good wishes as possible so you don't get lost in the shuffle .
Yeah, i think you could probably do better salary-wise elsewhere. Although, there's lots to consider......close to home, benefits, great judge, the courthouse environment seemed pretty friendly and family-like when I was there those couple of times. And, you know, if you went a couple counties over remember what THAT was like?! Talk about an awful work environment - that woman was an emotional wreck and a monster, not to mention jealous and just plain hateful, without one friend in the whole place! Although, I have heard she's on meds now, so maybe it's better. BUT, I digress - sorry. My point is you could get stuck in a situation like that where you never know what mood a coworker is going to be in, and how that mood will affect the other people you're stuck working with. Be wise and pray about it. ttyl
Will let you know the next time I go. Usually I go down April/October but I know December we will be there, as my son will be leaving for Iraq that month. :( But I plan to go stay a weekend with my DIL in October while he is away at training. Will be nice to 'bond' with her.
That is SO funny! The pic of my DD on my page was taken downtown Blairsville, lol. That town is so adorable! My DIL is still at IUP working on her masters.
I LOVE the coffee place at IUP....maybe we could meet the next time I go down. :) We had lunch at Colepeppers or something like that and their food is yummy! Did you grow up there or just 'living' there?
I noticed you are PA...my DS lives in Indiana, PA....well, Blairsville, lol. We were just down there. I grew up near Bradford, PA. DS went to IUP and met his wife there and stayed. I am in Rochester, NY now tho.
