I got it!

March 22nd, 2010 at 05:26 pm

I had a feeling the job was mine if I wanted it... Smile

What's really great is that it's working with the DM of the company I have my sales business with. Not only do I not have to learn the ins and outs of anohter company, but it will also help my business grow too. I was so concerned about working at some retail outlet and having to neglect my business, and now I can work on all of it at once.

The pay isn't huge, but there are bonus incentives. After crunching some numbers, I found it's enough money. I like to be able to say that! Enough is such a nice word.

Everyone can uncross their fingers now and get back to their daily business. LOL Thanks for the well wishes and good thoughts. It was certainly appreciated. Now for DH to get a job! We'll be golden then!

Great weekend

March 21st, 2010 at 05:07 pm

I spent the entire weekend with different friends, and I had such a wonderful, relaxing time.

Yesterday spent some time taking long walks around in the spring (nearly summer-like) weather and today went to a friend's house and played board games and just laughed and had fun.

I love DH and spending time with him, but it was really nice to have time for just me.

I also have a part-time job interview tomorrow afternoon. Turns out an acquaintance needs someone to help in her "office" (she's self-employed). From some of the brief conversations we've had, I got the feeling that the job is mine if I think it's something I can do/handle. She is aware that I work during the day, and I already know it is something I can do from home...so my fingers are crossed. Everyone out there cross yours too! Smile

DH is still applying for jobs, and is running into former collegues who have tips on where to put in an application. Hoping something comes through for him; he's getting a bit antsy not working.

I also need to finish my taxes this week - I got an email from TurboTax saying the rates go up on or after the 26th of March. I don't want to spend more money, so I need to get my act in gear!

Where did the time go?

I had wanted to consistently keep blogging...and I can't believe I had forgotten my password to log in. Shame on me!

Thank you all for the encouragement and well wishes. It is appreciated. Unfortunately, DH did not get the job; he is a bit discouraged, but is plugging along. He's applied to a few more that we've seen advertised, maybe we'll be lucky and one of those will be the one!

Waiting for winter to finally be over is taking too much time. Fabulous weather one day; less than stellar the next. But there are a few signs that winter is ending...a local roadside restaurant is opening for the season, and those hysterical Bud Light ads (real men of genius) are back on the radio! If that isn't signs of summer, I don't know what is!
