“Whooo....hooo!! Yippeee!!”


Description from Elaine aka Belly Chick: I had my first training shift today in my new job as a casual in a very high classed retirement community and before the shift was over, they offered me a full time position!! The hours are absolutely perfect, they offer very good benefits and the job is very easy-going and laid-back in a beautiful atmosphere (there is a baby grand piano in the middle of the dining room)! It is not a glamorous job; working in the kitchen/dining room; and the wage is not very high but it is steady work and is exactly what I have been looking for!! Yippeee!!

    Wonderful news, Elaine! Congratulations on finding your perfect job! Preparing and serving food may not be glamourous , but it is good work- nurturing people, nourishing their bodies and providing a time to break bread together with their friends. And it sounds like a work environment that will nurture you too! Can’t get much better than that, no matter the wage!
