Sierra's Birthday photos & a quick update

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Friday was Sierra's birthday. I made carrot cake cup cakes. We however did not celebrate until this evening. No presents yet but she loved the attention and the desert.





Of course Utah got one too. I ate most of them. My man has not even tried them. They were wonderful. I will likely make them again this week.


emoticon We went to the acreage both yesterday and today and worked. We got a fair amount done and the weather was beautiful.

emoticon The house is making me a bit crazy, all the clutter. So, rather than get stressed and let it eat at me. I did some de-cluttering this evening. There is more to do
but I feel a bit better already.

emoticon Lastly, I was feeling a bit stressed because I realize my one resume could use some work. Yes, the one I have been sending. I realize I really need to better tailor it for the type of job (project management, PMO, organizational change management).

emoticon Then I get an e-mail from a friend that is looking into a job for me. He initially said it was no longer open but then said that he found out that I was not a good fit and suggested I more fully articulate my experience in my resume.

So.... frustrating. Then I stopped myself and said, Yes, it would have been better to get it right day one but tomorrow is the beginning of week 2. I will improve. Can change last week. I can however, send updated resumes if I feel strongly. We'll see.

It is a touch balance. Spending more time versus getting lots of letters out.

Thanks for listening.

    Yum on the carrot cup cakes! What???? No Frosty Paws? I'm going to blog a recipe for home made Frosty Paws that I came across recently because the store bought can get expensive.

    Happy Birthday Sierra! emoticon emoticon

    Much luck on the resume repair & job search.

    What cute pictures!!!! you are such a good mama to those pups! If I were there I would have eaten those cupcakes right along with you!!!! YUM!

    I had the same experience with my resume this past month. (well maybe not exactly but similar) I was asked for my resume and took a look at it for the first time in years. I didn't feel like it but I had to be honest with myself and redo it. I think the time was worth it but the process can be daunting!

    You are doing just great. It seems like you are using your time really wisely. You will find something that suits you and your lifestyle. We are rooting for you! emoticon

    Sorry I was gone from spark most of the weekend. Glad I can catch up this morning. Hurray for celebrating Sierra's birthday. That is always so much fun!

    Glad you got time at the acreage too.

    Remember that we are constantly learning. So you learned about updating your resume. Don't look back...everything happens for a reason. Just keep tweaking and looking ahead!

    We can both rock this week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We are strong! emoticon
