Family Reunion / Repair / Learning The New Job


                                    Good Morning Mesa AZ

Sunday, all of the family members residing in the Phoenix area met at a Cracker Barrel centrally located.  It had been quite a while since we were all together, especially with Ted’s presence.  We had a great dinner and visit.  Later we can get together again while I’m still in the area, sans Ted.


That’s 13 of us.  My brother and his wife will be in town next month, so maybe we will do it again.

Monday Ted and I went out for breakfast and then had to go to several places before we located the fuel filler (not filter) hose to replace the one that leaked and Ted had to do a temporary fix when we were in Odessa, TX.

It was a dirty job and took longer than he anticipated, but got it finished before he had to leave for his flight back to San Francisco.

Tuesday, I just kicked back and settled in.  I did take a walk over to the almost full service Post Office here in the park to get my PO box and called Escapees to schedule mail forwarding. 

Wednesday was my first day on the job.  I work 3 , 8 hour days per week for my site and HUs.  This week it was W, Th and F, although my schedule will be M, Tu, and W.  I will be working in the Activities Office and Box Office, answering questions and selling tickets for all the different activities, dinners, dances, concerts etc..  There are 9 Cal Am RV parks that we sell tickets for.  One of the big names is Donny Osmond will be performing in  February.  The first two days, I was exhausted by the time I got home and Angel was so happy when I got home.  It’s a big  adjustment, working an 8 hour day when I haven’t done anything in the last 6 months.

It’s Saturday and I’m taking it easy.  One of the things that I’m trying to find a car. It’s tougher than I thought, as I have never bought a car from a private party before.  My daughter, Heidi will take me to look at one later today. Hopefully I will have transportation soon.

Enjoy your weekend!!!!

Thanks for visiting

  1. I can just imagine how difficult it would be to work an 8 hr day. Maybe it will turn out to be easier than gate-tending or camphosting where you are on call all the time.

  2. I hope you enjoy the job. It will take some getting used to for Angel too. Nice that you will have so many family members in the area.

  3. Sounds like you're getting settled in pretty good. Hopefully we'll get together next week-end. And good luck with the car search.

  4. Good to be settled again. You do have some adjusting to do, for sure. I'm not surprised you were tired after an 8 hour day, especially with a new job. I would have been pooped! It's tiring and stressful - learning all the new names and the tasks. Before you know it, you'll have your car, be comfortable with your job, and be back in the swing of things. It's nice you have family nearby. :)
