Back from the Job Fair

Monday, December 03, 2012

Hubby and I are back from our whirlwind trip to Atlanta for the job fair we have been anticipating for quite a while. We did have one really good interview, but there were not many schools there and other than the one really good interview, there were no positions appropriate for the 2 of us. Ah well, now we know what we are up against. The one interview though is all we really need to get a job. This organization prefers to hire married teacher couples. They have schools in many locations and they seemed to really like us. I hope it works out.

Spark wise, I could have done better. Long car rides aren't good for sparking. I ate some junk in the car as well as several restaurant meals that were certainly caloric and fat. Ah well, home again and back to focusing. I did do well on breakfast--the hotel had hard boiled eggs and coffee. I also resisted the free sodas and juices at the conference and drank only water or Starbucks coffee. I couldn't successfully pass up on pastries once though. I also made it a point to engage in some NEAT activities like jogging in place whenever I visited the restroom (privately in the handicap stall). I'm really getting into NEAT activities that make me be active even when engaging in sedentary behaviors--does that make sense?

Now I'm home and back with my friend Wii Fit and all my other Spark acoutrements. Let's make it happen!
