I had a fairly good time at the annual meeting. I got to talk to my friends Michael and Rob. My new immediate supervisor warmed up to me as the day went by. When I went to say "Hello" and shake his hand when I saw in the morning, he gave me non-welcoming response. He didn't say a word and didn't shake my hand. I will overcome whatever chip he has on his shoulder about me. I learned so much about what my friends have done over the last 11 years. I remember the day they started this company in the basement of their house. It is amazing and I am completely awestruck!

Today, I will be installing the Progressive Snapshot device in my car and move the bicycle rack from hubby's car to my car. We are planning on buying a new car after we close on the refi. The closing for refi is Monday at 4 PM at our house. I can't believe a refi company comes to your home to close. Well, it's a good thing. Tonight, I will be playing tennis with Michael.

Well, I am off to the annual meeting for NeoSystems Corp. (my best friends' privately held company). It's a cold and windy day. I am in my new clothes and shoes and excited to go to the meeting. More to report tomorrow.

I got the call around noon yesterday about the job. I accepted the offer and will officially start on Monday, November 28. However, I will be attending the annual "All Hands" meeting tomorrow. I am so relieved and excited that I got the job. However, I know deep down inside that someone, and I am not sure who (although I have an idea), did not want to hire me. I believe my good friend Michael stepped in and told them to hire me. Michael is the President/CEO of the company. Today, I will do the grocery shopping and go clothes shopping as well. I bought only a few pieces of clothing since I lost my job in 2008 and my weight starting in 2007. Oh, I also ordered the iPhone 4S as a belated birthday present. I can't believe it's going to take 14 to 21 days before I can get it. Time to be patient AGAIN! emoticon

PS I did go for a 30 miles bicycle ride after the call.

Yesterday, I did my 30 miles bicycle ride because I didn't want to get stressed out waiting for the email. Well, the email didn't come yesterday. So, I hope the email will come today. If not, I think I will contact Michael and ask him about it. I think it would be okay and I don't seem pushy.

Today, I will go for another bicycle ride. I am not sure if I will go for the entire 30 miles. I will go after the Federer match, though.

Yesterday was a good cardio day -- we rode 1.5 hours on our bicycles and we played 1.5 hours of doubles tennis. We had a good time playing doubles.

I believe I will hear from the hiring manager of my friends' company today. Michael mentioned to me last night that I should be getting an email today. So, keep your fingers crossed. It's been a long time since I started this entire job hunting process with my friends company.
