A LoooooooNgggg DAY!!!

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

I awoke at 5am and tried to sleep a bit more but failed. I got up and and prepared for the day what I had not last night. I made a smoothie for breakfast. It reminded me of my Simple Diet days. My smoothie was soy milk, whey protein, strawberries and broccoli - yup broccoli.

Headed out the door for the first stop, taking the kids to school then on to the gym. I decided to cycle for my cross training option. I rode the bike that looked like a chair basically a seat and a back onto the machine. It was cool but as usual, my bum started to hurt. I did 5mi in 31mins at 6mph. It was cool :)

After that, took the car for an oil change. I asked for 1 windshield blade to be replaced and if I needed to buy the blade. I was told no and it would be done after the oil change is complete. I go to check out and my bill was $72. Yes, for an oil change and 3 wind shield wipers (I have a mini-van). I was pisssed because I was specific in my request and then a job was done without any regards to my request or at least customer service to ask me if I want all three or to simply state, "Ma'm it will cost xyz." No customer service at all. I had coupons but it did not make a difference as to what I wanted to pay versus what I had to pay.

So the phone call happened today with the lady who said I did not meet what they wanted for the two positions I applied for but wanted to talk with me anyway. Well, that conversation was really an informal interview to tell me that there is only one position, not two and they are looking to fill it and meet people for possible positions 6 months - 1 year from now when they "plan" to expand...WTF emoticon she wants to meet me and I agreed but not so sure now!

Ran to get the cat food and kids fruit, not to mention I still have not had lunch. Make it home 1:15pm and ate avocado-lemon kale salad, rice and a baked chicken thigh. After eating that, got the kids and took them to the dentist. My hair appointment for 10pm was moved to 5pm b/c of an ER on my beautician's part! Anyway, got it done and headed out to get mom in Baltimore.

She's here and I am so tired! I have not packed for our long weekend as we are traveling. I have dishes that need to be washed. I am tired 5am-11pm...ya'll good night! Oh...and KEEP Sparkin' KEEP Sparkin' KEEP SPARKIN!!!

    Wow! That was a long day!
    I dont know how long you have been interviewing but I say go. What could it hurt? Look at it as practice for the perfect interview and you never know what opportunity may come your way.
