Still in the Running but a Little Out of Breath
Friday, September 20, 2013
It's been an interesting two days. Yesterday I had a job interview and a doctor appointment and the realization that I really don't like my regular physician. I'm not going to say too much about that here but I think I will switch to someone else by the time it's time for a new checkup. I figured if I get the job I might be under another insurance program anyway. Right now its just pretty nerve wracking applying for health care programs and hoping the county approves it. I have no other way to pay these medical bills I incurred with the hospital stay and the follow up appointments they gave me.
So let me go over getting ready for the interview yesterday. After midnight on the 19th, I would say at 1:00 a.m I woke up and could not get back to sleep. So I laid in my bed until four knowing I should sleep but not being able to. At four I woke up to get ready. I was not happy with my hair because it needed a trim and maybe some layering. I ate, brushed my teeth and did my nails which I always try to do when I have an interview but don't always succeed. The damn polish was Sally Hanson insta-dry and it did not quite insta dry. So it took a while before I could get my p.j's off and get in the shower. That nail polish is higher priced because it's supposed to have quick drying properties and even when I put my hair dryer on it to speed it up it didn't dry! Grrrr. The way manufacturers dupe women out of their hard earned pay!
But the color was lovely. An almost clear pink irridescent. It went so well with the shimmery watercolor type blouse and silver jacket I had on with a pair of navy blue Chaps. These outfits don't come easy by me. They are a combination of what I can get on a birthday gift card what I have to shell out for(the chaps slacks) and some good old consignment store shopping( the silvery linen outer top. I am a size 22 right now but I do have a nice complexion and good hair on my side. Only about three greys in my hair makes me hopeful they will never guess my age. Except for those dark circles under my eyes. While looking for concealer I dropped a bottle of nail polish remover on my toe. I tried nylons but decided it was too much like stuffing a sausage and with the heart problems last weak I didn't want more circulation problems. Better not to tempt fate. I just wore some nice trouser socks. I put my hair up in a French twist and by the time I had wrestled myself into this outfit I was looking pretty good for 52. I hope.
Anyhow, I felt overdressed when I got to the interview. I won't comment on what they had on but I hoped I didn't spiff up too much. Before I got there I brushed up on my interview questions and reread the job description. I think the interview went well. They looked pleased with the answers I gave. I prayed I would get it and did a thank you email a couple hours after the interview reminding them how much I wanted the job and of course reminding them of the work skills that I had that matched. So if any of you read this please send a prayer my way. I really need to pay for these hospital bills and I really need decent insurance.
Well now I have to go for my other doctor appointment. Some kind of vascular follow up. But at least it will be a doctor I don't know well this time. Maybe someone who is not as arrogant as my general practitioner. Better not get my hopes up too high though.
