It's Friday, It's April and It's SNOWING!!!

Oh my heck! What is Mother Nature thinking? Doesn't' she know I hate the cold and snow and that I am not working right now! It would be nice if while I have the time off I could actually be productive and start the spring yard work! I guess I'll have to start inside and do some spring cleaning instead, major bummer! LOL!

Nothing new on the job front. I had an interview on Tuesday with iRobot. They make those Roomba and Scooba floor cleaning robots. Along with some very important Bomb detecting robots that are over in Iraq right now. Seemed like a cool place to work. But of course I am not the only one they have interviewed and they had one more after me so I won't hear until early next week and I'm not getting my hopes up because really what are the chances you get the first job you interview for?

I have had something to do that has pretty much kept me busy until the kids come home every day so I didn't get any scrapping time in as much as I'd hoped. Maybe next week I can scrap instead of clean! :)

And here is another little quiz for you:

Your Thinking is Abstract and Sequential

You like to do research and collect lots of information.
The more facts you have, the easier it is for you to learn.
You need to figure things out for yourself and consider all possibilities.
You tend to become an expert in the subjects that you study.
It's difficult for you to work with people who know less than you do.

You aren't a very patient teacher, and you don't like convincing people that you're right.

So that's my update. Hope you all have a fabulous Friday and great weekend!

Snow . . . yuck . . . I hope we are done with the snow. Snowed on Easter here . . . ridiculous.

I hope you have luck finding a job you like . . . and start saving so you can come see us!!!

Seriously . . . I am scared to see what kind of thinker I am. :)

That really sucks about the snow. Have y'all hit that magic record number?

I checked out the quiz, Pam. It's pretty much spot on:

Your Thinking is Abstract and Random

You are flexible, adaptable, and creative.
There's many ways that you can learn - and you're up for any of them.

You relate well to other people, and you do well working in groups.
You can help people communicate together and work with each other's strengths.

You don't work well with people who are competitive or adversarial.

You prefer to work toward a common goal... not toward conflicting goals.

Hey, that's pretty tricky, Pam! I didn't even see that at first, but I guess the answer would be "Abstract and Sequential"! :o)

Sorry no luck on the job front, hopefully the iRobot job will come through! That sounds like it would be a very interesting place to work.

Hope your weather improves, snow in April is just WRONG! Have a great weekend!

Well DANG IT! I wish that your snow would go away.

Here are my thinking results:
You are precise, orderly, and realistic.
You tend to get to the point and get things done.

Difficult, detailed work is easy for you. You take things step by step.
Time limits aren't a problem for you either. You work well with deadlines.

What does drive you crazy is any sort of task that isn't precisely laid out.
You don't like anything to be ambiguous. You prefer to deal with the facts at hand.

It's pretty darned accurate!
I enjoy these quizzes. Thanks for posting them.

I wonder if there IS a category for Kristi's thinking style??? ;-)

I can finally see grass and some of my daffodils! It mostly rained here on Friday and so much of the white stuff melted away!

Have a great weekend!

You have to come meet us!

Snow? What's that? Our weather is starting to turn cool now. It was 24C (75F) here yesterday...

I'm abstract and random too.

Today I dropped my daugther off at school with a winter coat on ...and flip flops! Talking about wishful thinking!

I know irobt! I have one of the rhombas. Almost did a scrap page about it! Speaking of scrapping, I'm not doing the bus tour :( Are you doing it again? I have a family thing. But hope to see you guys soon.
