Last day of Feb
Oh my dearest bloggy-wog, sweet thing that you are,
Job searching is making me a bit kooky. I got turned down for the last one after 3 rounds of interviews. It seems that they took the other candidate because he was less experienced and cheaper. For the last two days, I have been surfing the internet, putting in resumes and talking to folks - mostly recruiters, on the phone. I know that the perfect job is out there for me. Just need some help and good wishes to find it. Thank you.
The soul mate front isn't looking too good either. After one seemingly good date, he got the flu. Although we have been in touch, it is not currently looking like there is a second date on the horizon. I need some help and good wishes on that one, too. Thank you.
Aside from what it may sound like, I am very up and happy at the moment. Just trying to be patient going through both processes.
Doggies are doing fine. Took Smokey for his yearly check-up today. Expensive. His Vet is really cool though and oh so cute. Not taking any new clients but will continue to take care of his current ones. A 7:00 AM appointment and it took me one month to get. Whew! Both dogs do love him and did I say he was cute?
What else is happening? Ummm..... All healed up from surgery. 2 months until the next visit where any remaining touch up will be done and I get my nipple. Tattoos - woohoooo!
Still working on "letting go" of my junk in the study. Haven't sold any (no not a one) of my books on Amazon but they are off of the shelf and the non-book paper has gone to the recycling bin. The book shelf is full but with new books and books that had been inhabiting other locales in the house. Still tons of filing to be done although I can see the top of my desk and parts of the floor now.
Finished another painting last night that caused my teacher to say, "Wow!" for the first time. She really liked it. I like it, too.
After sleeping through, er, watching the Academy Awards, I discovered that I hadn't seen most of the movies nominated and/or chosen. Took a break from the job search and went to the video store to rent Flags of Our Fathers, Babel and The Departed. Flags of Our Fathers was pretty good although I would say no where near as good as its companion piece, Letters From Iwo Jima. It was interesting though to see how, even in the days before mass televesion and the internet, facts were still extremely manipulated by the government with the help of the press. I am now watching Babel. Only got about 1/2 way through it yesterday between the job search stuff but, so far, it is pretty good.
Books - Have joined the mass population in reading The Secret which was recently featured on Oprah although it has been around a while. It is all about the Law of Attraction and that is as far as I have gotten.
Well back to the job search. As I mentioned before, any help is greatly appreciated.
Cheers and Happy Day!
