Thank You & Some Baby Pics

First the baby pics, the NC Zoo's babies. Asheboro is the home of the NC Zoo. Rich and I haven't been in A few years and yesterday was a perfect day to go walk around before heading to my Mom's for dinner at 3.
The first thing that you need to know about this zoo is that it is 500 acres so lace up you walking shoes.
They have had a few babies born this year...

2 baby gorillas, can you see the little guy on his Mom's back.

Here are both mom's laying in the sun with the babies.

The giraffe baby on the right. The giraffes amaze me, they are so large.

A baby chimp too. That is it for the babies.

The elephants and rhinos looked happy.

This is the sign you see on your walk back to the entrance.
It was great to have a walk since we were going to eat so much later. Right now it is hunting season so we will not be walking at our normal spot until it is over so the zoo is an option for us.
Now the thank you part. Thank you dear friends for all you cancers about the job. I did get an offer and I have paperwork to fill out. There are some changes. It is a little less money, the hours are a little different, I will notedn as much paid time off. It is better than going back to my second job full time. The job will be different in quite a few ways and I know that I will have to assume extra responsibilities during the process. So the next few months will be stressful as we adjust. I also need to go buy some khakis since there is a very specific dress code. Ugh! I am thankful for a job and insurance but this is my 3rd company in 5 months at the same location to provide services at the county behavioral health facility. It all has to do with the funding and managed care situation. I don't understand it all.
So thank you again for all the crossed fingers and support.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm glad you've got something worked out Chris, even if it's not ideal. Hopefully it will all work out for the best. That looks like an amazing zoo, very natural compared to the usual zoos.

Margaret said...

Cute zoo babies! I hope the new job isn't too stressful for you in the adjustment period. Sorry it's not ideal, but at least it's a job, right? Good luck with it!

Nicola said...

I love animal photos. Could you imagine giving birth to a giraffe!!

Sometimes it is easier to find a job when you already have one.

You never know what may come along.

Krista said...

awww, what sweet babies! love the giraffes! I need to visit a zoo, haven't been since i was so little visiting the catskill game farms.

I am glad to hear you have a new position. Sometimes while it may not be what we expect, it can turn out to be for the best. I hope it works out for you.

Enjoy your weekend!

So glad that you have a job. What a great feeling.

Great idea of going to the zoo. We used to go all the time. Lena might be getting old enough to last through the walking.
