Townspeople of Rachelville.................................I need your help!!

I have a job interview Monday and I'm nervous. They just called and set up an interview.

What I need from you is to "Say a little prayer for me" (sings the song from My Best Friends wedding) I have been praying and praying that I find a job. I keep telling God that if this is the job that I am supposed to have then please help me get it. So if you don't mind......... :D

It is for teaching Kindergarten................*sigh* I'm totally going to freak out until Monday.

Karen,

You aren't any older than most of us here. I don't remember what decade roller derby was popular but I do know about it.

Karen,

I'm pretty sure roller derby was the 70's

For some reason it reminds me of that song by the Bay City Rollers,

S, A, T, U, R, D, A, Y....NIGHTS!!!!

Karen, roller derby would be a fun way to work out our agressions due to our health issues, much like my punching bag :lol::lol:

Jessica, I will be thinking good thoughts for you!!! Best of luck with the interview and keep us posted how it goes :)

I took ice skating lessons in the 70s when it was really popular then, around the time of Dorothy Hammill (sp?) and the movie Ice Castles, LOVED that movie. :

I loved Ice Castles too. Did you ever see The Cutting Edge? I liked that one too, especially the end skating sequence.

I remember that song! What was the Ice Castles theme song....I forget.

LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF LOVE (Melissa Manchester)

Please, don't let this feeling end,

It's ev'rything I am,

Ev'rything I wanna be;

I can see what's mine now,

Finding out what's true,

Since I've found you

Lookin' through the eyes of love

Now I can take the time,

I can see my life

As it comes on shining now;

Reachin' out to touch you,

I can feel so much,

Since I've found you

Lookin' through the eyes of love.

And now I do believe,

That even in a storm, we'll find some light;

Knowin' you're beside me,

I'm alright.

Please, don't let this feelin' end,

It might not come again;

And I want to remember

How it feels to touch you;

How I feel so much,

Since I've found you

Lookin' through the eyes of love.

Love the movie

A couple of years ago, I decided to "re-learn" to skate so I could mess around with Walker at the rink and help him learn to skate. Before I decided I'd get a stick and try to play hockey with him, I was at the sporting goods shop and I asked the fella if I should get hockey skates or figure skates.

Him: If you want to fall on your face - get figure skates, if you want to fall on your a$$ get hockey skates.

Me: Hockey skates it is!

We had a parents vs. kids hockey game last March and I had a blast! Too bad I can only turn to the left, can't skate backwards and use the boards to stop or I'd go to the women's shinny at our rink. Now Ty's signed up for hockey too. I can hardly wait. He's so little the equipment will outweigh him. Evaluations start Sept. 6th. :blink:

Thanks so much Karen.

I used to play that on the piano many years ago. :P

Linda,

That's too funny! :lol::lol:

Let us know how Ty does. :)

Too true!!!

When I took lessons as a kid, I had constant bruises on my knees and hips from falling on turns, jumps, etc. I only got far enough along to do a single axle though :rolleyes:

One of the first things I learned in skating was the hockey stop, so that we could spray the boys with ice :P

Much more fun than a boring and slow t-stop...and you get some awesome ice off of those sharp figure skates ;)

That's so awesome about Ty!!!

It IS addictive.

Just so you all know, I got the news yesterday that I am going to GREENLAND next summer.

I will be there for about a year, leaving the wife and kids behind here in Saskatchewan. They inform me that my diet is not a problem (which makes me VERY happy). I don't have much in the way of final details right now, but will post them as I know.

Back to the conversation at hand -- I have not been roller skating in some time. I grew up in a city of 750K people, and we only had 1 rink (not very popular I guess). I miss it, but would not remember how to skate at all.

Gotta run. Talk to you all soon!

We got our 6 year old some roller skates for her birthday. She loved them! We probably don't get out there & roller skate as often as we should but when she does she has so much fun.

Well, hubby and I were on a business trip (everything was free for us, the manufacturer paid for all our food, company paid for Adam's plane tickets and hotel). I did not gamble, but spent my $ on jeans!! I said that I'd rather something to show for what I would have lost anyway!! <_< That is the same trip where we went to see Aerosmith ... the jeans were cheap compared to the concert tickets! Okay, it was a splurge, but it's been a long time since hubby and I were anywhere minus kids ... problem is, once you wear expensive jeans ... ugh. And Guess jeans are made for those of us who end up as thin as a rail!!

Congratulations, Ryan.

Chelsea, we need a pic of the new color!

Well, gotta run. Sorry I didn't read everything in detail ... I have much more energy today, so I think I'm finally beating this virus.

Have a great day! I miss Rachelville! Morgan says hello and she might get on for a while.

Jenny,

Welcome! :D

Would you just like to be a "visitor" or would you like a job (application on page 1) and to become a "resident" of our paradise community? We would need to know your interests/hobbies to be able to better place you if you'd like to be a "resident". :P

Ryan that's great! I know you wanted this post. So in about 1 1/2 you get to go to Colorado Springs? Was that it? I know it was a Springs. :P It's great that the diet won't be a problem. I second Patti, how is the family taking this?

Well, gotta run. Sorry I didn't read everything in detail ... I have much more energy today, so I think I'm finally beating this virus.

Carla, so good to hear you are feeling better. It seems like a lot have been down this week with various things. :(

Morgan I see you. Good morning. :P

Dave I see you. Good morning. :P

Linda, this sounds like so much fun!!! I want to learn how to skate now. Sounds like hockey skates are the way to go.....and lots of padding :lol:

Ryan, CONGRATULATIONS!! Great news, so happy for you!

Hi Carla and Morgan, miss you guys! Get back to Rachelville soon :)

You know what would be so much fun? If we all got together for a big Rachelville party and go roller skating. I think that would be a blast.

Good morning Andrea, how are you and the kids??

Hi Jennj!! Welcome :)

So anyone have any good plans for the weekend?

We are supposed to go racing but it is 40% chance of rain. That is no fun at all.

I guess we might go antique shopping or something like that if it does rain.

I don't really have any big plans yet. I will go to a pilates class on Sat and yoga on Sun so far....maybe go look at some model homes for decorating ideas.

Antique shopping sounds fun SusanW, are you looking for anything particular??

No, it is just something I like to do. I never really know what I'm looking for until I find it.
