Wow, what a ride this Wednesday has been. I started the day slower than usual because I was going to a job interview, rather than downtown to volunteer at the appliance repair shop.
The nerves were starting to take their toll, but I tried a warm shower, a time of meditation and prayer and kept busy at home making the place a bit more tidy.
I stayed within a healthy calorie count... neither piling it in nor skipping my 'brekky'. (Imagine during the interview having a loud stomach rumble!) Oh yeah, I can be audible in the tummy department...
I got things to calm down until I tried my blood pressure reading and it was up again. So, this excitement and high blood pressure isn't about to go lower just because of a baby aspirin each morning.
No headache. That's a sure sign for me that my numbers are up there...
got a chore done in my neighborhood. Check.
Go to interview. Got there is good time and didn't have to wait very long. Spoke to present receptionist... oh, it's her job I'm applying for... she is moving up in the company. Good to know.
I was asked questions by 3 ladies and was given time to ask some of my own. It felt exciting and I think I was able to answer truthfully and intelligently. (Good way to present oneself, don't you think?) I kept my gift of the gab at bay without being curt.
When I finished that portion of my day, I felt that I had given it my best. What more can I do to impress or persuade? The interview is done.
I was told that there are three others who are being considered and I would hear back either way before Friday.
That was quite a hump to climb this Wednesday.
My lunch has been an event of mindful eating. I remembered to snack and drink water throughout the day. Check.
It is time to close this other office and head back to my home. Hump day will be developing into wait and see days.

Here's a smile for today.
I have been unpacking and arranging Royal Albert china that once belonged to DH's grandma. She had place settings for 16 people and all the vegetable bowls, candy dishes, etc. etc. etc.
I'm trying to get it to fit in a 'secretary' cupboard that he inherited too. (Great for writing, but not so wonderful for all this fancy dishware.)
I went out to the garage with yet another empty box and said, "My, but there is a lot of china!"
Without missing a beat, my sweetie answered, "That's what Marco Polo said."

Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
But they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
When they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
Yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
Please remind all your women friends and relatives just how amazing they are.
