89% humidity and 95 F degree temps

I tried to fill up my salt shaker and the salt in the Morton salt containers was clumped up. I put dry rice in the salt container in hopes of filling shaker tomorrow since it isn't happening today.

Not a happy camper. My thyroid is doing worse. My doc upped the dosage again. This is not a good thing.  Other than that I am healthy enough.

Still working as a temp employee.  Boss has said we (me and 3 other employees) are aproved to be hire permenantly. She is just trying to figure out the procedure?!?!  Yeah RIGHT!!!  This weekend she leaves for Ecuador for 2 1/2 weeks. So maybe I'll get hired on by July 1.

My child informed me today that she passed her Language Arts and Math class and she will get a passing grade for Social Studies if she did well on the final which she took today. As I beat my head against the table, I'm trying to remember when/if I saw her studying for that final. NOT, but she will probably pass it anyway. I just don't know how much I care at this point. I just want school to be over for the summer.

I've been reading a lot as usual. I've had to add new authors.  My newest is Bernard Cornwell.  I am currently reading my 3rd book of the Saxon series.  I am really enjoying the stories.  I just started reading Muriel Spark and her book entitled "A Fry Cry from Keningston".  It is different and a little odd but interesting.

I'm getting a new phone, whether I want it or not. We have been due for upgrades since January of this year, but I like my blackberry curve.  I have dropped my phone so many times and it still works great.  Not to mention the battery last a full 24 hours before needing charged.  Then my husband drops his phone in his coffee. Didn't even know it happened for a while. Now because he needs new phone we both get one. I am hoping the Android Pro is ok because that is what I picked out from the free up-grade list.

Going to bed now.

Temp/Contract to Perm by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #1 Thu May 31, 2012 at 06:17:55 AM EST
I spent fifteen months as a contractor with my current company.  At the six month mark I was asked about the potential of going perm.  At the twelve month mark I was asked if I wanted to do it and that it would be followed up on.  I was direct hired at the fifteen month mark.

I think I will be hired on soon.  I hope.

If not now by jimgon (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Jun 01, 2012 at 06:04:31 AM EST
What happens is that the hiring manager gets lazy and doesn't pursue it.  They think of it as just another thing on their to-do list.  They already have you, so there's no need to hurry.  There are other pressing things to do first.

Bernard Cornwell by Vulch (4.00 / 2) #3 Thu May 31, 2012 at 12:46:13 PM EST
If you get onto the Sharpe books and read them in chronological order rather then order of publication, be prepared for the title character to flip between the original version and Sean Bean from book to book.
