[nfbwatlk] Three things

I'm interested in NAGDU. 
 Wednesday wouldn't work for me because I have choir rehearsal that night.
Sunday would work better for me.

Congratulations on your new job.  That's great.

I just got new eyes in October.  I'd had mine for 25 years, and they weren't
fitting right either.

Good evening everyone! I'm trying to make this message cover several things.
First of all, I wanted to say congratulations to Don Mitchell.  That was a
great article, and couldn't have happened to a nicer person.  Great going,

I'm wondering if those who responded to me about NAGDU would mind writing me
back one more time.  I'm trying to get our call in before I go to Seeing Eye
so we could at least have one convousation before I head out.  Marci has
said that we can use the conference call number.  I am thinking of Sunday
April 19, or Wednesday the 22nd.  If you could let me know which of those
nights would be good, I'd appreciate it.  I'd like to have the call start at
either 7 or 7:30, so if you would give me that preference, I'd appreciate
that, too.  You can also call me at 509-690-4624.

My third thing is that I was hired yesterday by a small local business
called Strategic Contact Solutions Inc.  We do outbound calls for
businesses.  We do things like set appointments, etc.  
I've only listened in for a little while yesterday.  They have another blind
employee, who also has a dog guide.  This will mean that the day after I get
back from Seeing Eye, I'll go in and get adjusted to the work site, etc.  My
boss is very understanding, he understood that I already had a class date to
The Seeing Eye, and when I told him that I also already had a ticket for the
flight to Orlando for the NFB convention and had pre-registered, he said,
"Well, I guess you'll be going to the NFB convention then." I apologized,
and he said, "It's okay, knowing early means we can plan.  July 3 will be a
day off, so that will give me time to pack, etc.  I also told him about the
NFB convention in the fall, but told him that I did not have any information
yet about date or location.  He said that was fine, to just let him know
when I did.  Wow! But I do think I will need to resign from the SRC.  It
would not be good form to tell him that every quarter I have to take Friday
off.  Lol.  The PAC meetings are usually on Saturday and generally are over
the phone meetings, anyway.  So I think I'll be okay as far as that goes.

I'm also in the process of getting new eyes, as my prosthetic ones are 20
years old, and one of them is not fitting well anymore.  They should be done
by Thursday.  Exhausting! Lol.

Well, I'd best get going.    Peace,    Debby
