1) I got the job at Camp Laurel. They can't put me in a counselor position because I have to leave a little early (for my Boston swim), but they've set me up to work in the office for a few days. Apparently their office is open from 7am till 10pm each day, so 15 hours, and I'll work about 9 hours of that. No real details yet on sleeping quarters, salary, etc. because I had to run back to the stables to pick up my campers after their lesson, but I definitely have a position, so I'm pretty happy. They're going to email me with further details. But really, whatever I do and whatever they pay me, it beats (a) paying for six nights in a motel, or (b) spending six nights with strangers (Dad's friends) and having nothing to do.
2) My car got fixed, for real this time (I hope!), for no charge. This time it was apparently pretty straightforward - just a burnt-out fuse or something. Cross your fingers that this was the ticket.
3) The only person able to give me a ride to the dealership was Rob, our male nurse, and his vehicle happens to be... a motorcycle! (Yes, Mom, he is a careful driver, and I wore a helmet and long clothing, and the speed limit never exceeded 50.) I had never been on a motorcycle before, so it was a lot of fun for me.
4) I am off tonight, typing this post while sitting in (where else?) Panera. And I've discovered a new favorite sandwich... the Smokehouse Turkey panini. Also, they're trying to kick us all out now so they can close, so they're giving away the pastries that are left behind the counter! So I got a free brownie and (for tomorrow) a mini lemon poppyseed cake. Can't beat that!
