Here to Stay

Words of wisdom from my new boss:

  • If you don't make any mistakes, you're not working hard enough.
  • If you're not having fun, you should go work somewhere else.
  • I have a niece named Kimberly, so don't be offended if I accidentally call you "Kimmie"
  • You're such a smartass - Nicely done.

2008 Is Where It's At.

It's been a good week. I went to the dentist on Tuesday for initial x-rays and an exam. While I was there, someone cancelled an afternoon deep cleaning, so they fit me in for that. After 3 years without any dental visits, not a single cavity! Go me!

Got a job offer on Friday too! Woot!

Cleaning House

So, the day I was laid off from work I sat on the couch for about 30 minutes and zoned out. Then, I got my ass up and cleaned the kitchen. After that, I made cinnamon rolls. From scratch. Nick came home and noticed the clean apartment, and the yummy smells coming from the oven, and made the announcement that it would be alright if I stayed unemployed for a while.

I thought about it, but the pajamas, red wine and CSI at noon is starting to get old already. That, and one of Nick's Christmas gifts was actually a picture of something that we need to go shopping for, so I guess I need to replenish my bank account soon.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon updating my resume and cover letter, and looking over the job listings on Craigslist. I responded to about 6 posts, and within 30 minutes had already gotten a call. Remember that red wine at noon? I let the call go to voicemail, and will be calling back today. I also received an email from another prospective employer, but they want to pay less than what I made at the non profit - less than what I've been making for the last 5 years. I received another email this morning from a different company, and they want to schedule an interview. I'll call them back today as well. Apparently my resume is pretty decent if people are trying to schedule meetings without even speaking to me.

Wish me luck, Kids!
