SAturday got better. .. how could it not?

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and encouragement. I was feeling guilty that I didn't get the job, but realized that it was not something I did and I had no reason whatsoever to feel victimized. So, today, I got up the courage (and I am glad I did), I called my very good friend, one who had given the reference for the job for me too. When I told her all the details, she said at several points that there were red flags for her too. So we spoke for about 3 hours and it was sooooo good for both of us. Then I went for walk to the library and I spoke with my new friend there. At first, I was keeping names and dates out of the story, but then realizing that she is from that little town and she would know insider information... she indeed had some details. So I told her names and places and she will be watching to see who does get that position. And she made some very nice comments to about the skills I would have brought to the position and they've never had anyone in that position who knew as much as I do. So, it was a complete turnaround from yesterday. Like a few of you said to me, there's gotta be good come after so much bad.. This also had me open up to this new "friend" at the library and I issued another invite to her to go out for a coffee...

Storm warnings out tonite again, guess winter has decided we've had it easy and it's time to get with the program.

Thank you for reminder of Annie924's comment too about the "Bad day- not a bad life".. I have seen it several times and felt it was a great comment, so did need that reminder..

Tonite we were out shopping for groceries when bro called with a flooding problem at the apt., so when I came back, I went to check that out, and was invited for a cup of tea and talk, so another positive. I had to serve an Eviction Notice, not good, but finally caught up with the tenant and got that done - with no problem tonite too. And at my own apt, I found we had no heat. Went to basement with dh, and bro on the phone and we messed around a little, and we now have heat again, still something off though cuz there's a ticking sound to the furnace... he assures me it's not a bomb.. He's got other concerns cuz his son-i-l's brother was in a car accident and the parents are in 1 hospital and their 4 kids are in another, so lots of stress for everyone. I spoke with my niece tonite and her oldest dd's bf had his 54 y.o. mother die suddenly on Monday......I don't know any of them, but listened to her story...

So, time to watch a movie...and relax... we did sleep in this am and long talk into the nite about the situations yesterday.

I cooked up spiced up chicken strips with mushrooms and onions and a pkg. of Jasmine rice I got at store for 25 cents.... along with nice steamed broccoli for supper. Now, if I hadn't been dipping into the reduced valentines chocolates, it would have all been good..

Good nite all, have a great weekend... and thanks again for everyone's support...

    You know the right job will come around, and in the meantime it sounds like you're not letting that "yucky" interview situation ruin any of the good changes you decided to make. Loved your dinner menu (again!), too!

    So glad it was a better day for you today. emoticon

    We are supposed to have snow here tonight, are you getting rain or snow?

    Like the positive tone in your blog, you are obviously making the best of your situation, especially regarding the job situation.

    Hope to get to church tomorrow if there isn't to much snow.

    Take care. emoticon
