The operation of Carnival and Princess is separate, as was part of the acquisition deal in which Princess became part of Carnival. Their maintained their own independent processes of ship maintenance, etc. I travel almost exclusively on Princess, and have NO interest in going on a Carnival ship (for more reasons than just the concerns about maintenance).
The supercilious news- I have Internet at home for the first time in 5 years.
Important news - I am staying at my current school next near. Finally, for the first time ever, no moving for me!
:yay So happy for you! I know that's a HUGE deal. :cheek
We got our taxes done this week. Hubby pointed out on this year's return something that didn't look right about how our accountant reported something, and hubby's way was better for us tax-wise. Accountant agreed, lowering this year's taxes AND filed amended returns for the last 3 years, which will get us $1,100 back from the tax grabbers. THAT was a pleasant surprise!
I stated a 'Job' - it is quotes because it is part of a Fellowship program and does not pay. However - I love it! I have never done sales before and I got a hot lead on my 2nd day! It is great to have responsibilities and I think they are impressed with me so far. The bodega man (Bob) gave me a free ice cream. I love learning new things and boy is this new!
Hopefully this will grant me contacts to get a full time *paying* job. But right now I am thankful for the experience and having a reason to be 'professional' again. I missed that part of my personality.
I am really optimistic - my mom (who has been in and out of the hospital even before Sandy) is on the mend so I feel like I am 'blooming'!
Happy Spring everyone!
I'm glad to hear about your new opportunity, beerbelly. You sound happy and upbeat. Happy Spring to you too!
