The pool was beautiful! I wish I had waited a little later to swim though, it was chaotic in the pool for most of my swim, the last 10 minutes were lovely quiet and I didn't want to leave but I was hungry lol

I went to spin class tonight, week 2 was more difficult than week 1 but I made it! After spin I took a dip in the pool just to cool down and stretch. That's a nice routine that I'll try to do again next week.

Oh! I signed up to ride Bike to the Bay in the fall - it's a 75 mile bike ride to benefit MS in Delaware. If you're so inclined, you can donate to my fundraising goal here: main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/B

Hi guys!!! Guess everyone is pretty busy this week.

I had a productive job searching day yesterday with a phone interview that has progressed to an in person interview next Monday. I had a recruiter reach out with a position that seems decent, and I had someone call on an application I put in on Monday. This one is a really good one, and I'm excited to have a phone screen interview this morning for it.

The trip to Paris is all planned. I have tickets for a dinner cruise, train tickets for our day trip to Reims and reservations for a tour of a Champagne house, and tickets to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The rest of the the time is more free form, so I think it's all done as far as the planning. We leave a week from today! I'm very excited!!

I have dance class tonight, so that will be my exercise. I'm looking forward to that!

Jen, I hope that swim was awesome!!!

Have a great day everyone!

Heather, I know what you mean about being able to ramble out thoughts. It helps and this is a much 'safer' option since it's a little less likely people will look for it here.

I'm cooking up some chicken for lunches and a bit of pork loin with fennel for dinner on the grill, then I'm off for the pool! First outdoor swim of the season!

Jen, many people come into our booth at craft fairs and think the pieces are ceramic or pottery. They are surprised to find out they are painted wood. Houston really does nice paintings as well, and you are right, he loves manipulating surfaces with different finishes. I personally love his artistic vision, but I may be a bit biased...... :)

I have two interviews set up for this week now. Phew. I was a tad worried with no interviews set up this week. One is for a three month assignment covering for a woman going on maternity leave. It is grossly under what I should make, but at some point I'm gonna need more income than unemployment can provide and this could help bridge the gap in the summer when hiring isn't as quick. The other is a full time permanent position that seems like a good fit, so we'll see what happens. Still haven't heard from the union, which doesn't seem like a good thing at this point. I have a few other people who have reached out and then not followed up, but sometimes it's hard to remember that although all I have is time right now, those who are working have lots of things to do that don't involve hiring me! LOL

Thank you all for letting me just ramble on here about the job search. I have to be more selective about what I say on facebook but the truth is the support I receive here is really helpful. Just being able to write my thoughts out keeps them from cluttering up my mind.

I can't wait to work out tonight. I need the exercise!!! It sure helps keep the energy up.

Hi folks :) a little warmth, hooray!!

Aww I'm glad you guys like the work :) it's so satisfying to make and share, of course I have more ideas and projects up my sleeve.

Heather, you're hubby's work reminds me of porcelain in the pictures, it sounds like he enjoys playing with different finishes.

Another week in the cube in the works, I got my three workouts last week and I'm aiming to do it again this week. I'll go for a bike ride tonight, an outdoor swim tomorrow, and spin class on Thursday. This weekend I have a street festival where I'll be vending (henna).

Hi everyone! I'm back for another day of working on the job search! Also, today I start to build the foundations of my own accounting and bookkeeping business. It's a bit daunting to me, but I know I can do this, so today I start with baby steps.

I had a few inquiries yesterday on applications I put in, so that's a good thing. I haven't heard yet from the union. I imagine I may be the second choice and they are waiting to hear from the first choice if that person accepts. Moving on but not giving up hope as I haven't actually heard anything yet.

Today is going to be a great day!!! It will be near 80 by this afternoon. We sure could use some warmth.

Have a great day everyone!!

Good Morning all!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Jen, I really love your work. I checked out your website, and I like it! I love the way you express yourself. Thanks for taking a look at our site. I like hubby's work too! :)

Lynn, so nice to see you here!! I'm sorry you've had so many shoulder issues.....that really stinks. I haven't been to the pool in ages. With all the job changes and financial uncertainty, the Y membership is one of the things we dropped. Someday I hope to get back to it!!

Carol, the interview went well as far as I can tell. I met with the elected leadership of the union, and I think they were trying to be as tough as they could because the membership is a little tough, being NYC carpenters, and so they want to make sure I can take it. I think I can! Then I had to do a practical test reviewing the g/l and p&l for accruals that might be needed for April financials. I hope I got it right!! The hiring manager said the HR person was out of the office Friday (which is the same thing the HR person told me) and that there are two finalists and they would let me know early this week. I would definitely take this job if they offer it, well, if the offer is decent, so I hope it's a yes. If not, I have lots of other irons in the fire!! I'm trying very hard to keep it all in perspective.

I had a great Mother's Day weekend!!! I'm still doing the final planning for our little trip to Paris next week. I can't believe I'm going to Paris and I'm unemployed, but it's all paid for already, so......off we go!!

Have a FUN and ACTIVE day and week!!
