  1. One down, one to go

    Found a PT job making flyers for a realtor on Craigslist Friday night. Now, real estate is a bit of a dirty word with the previous work I've done BUT... I can market that crap. And, income is income. Plus, what was I losing out if I didn't call? So, I called and had an interview today at 3pm.

    Aced that interview. Had them eating out of my hands in under 10 minutes. I am in the driver's seat here! I will limited by their budget and my imagination...oh, darn!

    So, I will be

  2. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Hmm...

    The Good - I have a job interview Monday! We're crossing fingers...and body parts.

    The Bad - The overall quality of the "big" Grand Prix at Stock Show. There were a couple of really good rounds but then there were some really not so good rounds.

    The Ugly - the upcoming dentist visit where I get TWO teeth repaired that were damanged, by popcorn, while at the GP!

    C'est la vie
  3. LAF = Life After Flick

    I was asked at lunch the other day if I would get another horse after Flick. It's not too morbid to admit that I have plans for my real horse life once Flick has "kicked the bucket". Corrie's Tempa lived 'til 41, *Aladdinn 'til 35, some Morgans I took care of were in their 40s...but all the good living enhanced by drugs will not give Flick immortality.

  4. Bored out of my mind - Stock Show!

    I gotta wonder if I still have a mind. This not working thing is really not working for me. It's not like I've been making up by having a sparkling house, cuz I've not. I'm not going to magically have a completely clean house at any point in my life, why would I now?

    It's National Western Stock Show time so I have been taking that in. Stock show is fun. For two weeks, it's cows and horses and rodeos all the time. Generally, I haven't always been "good" about getting to the

  5. Almost but not quite like being a "little" pregnant...

    I am almost but not quite employed!

    I talked to the boss yesterday. He asked me to check in periodically but didn't think he'd need a second designer.

    I told him that I would be looking for a new position and having companies contact him. (Which is only different from what I'm doing in the later bit.) He seemed OK with that. Not like he could do much more than that. It's not like he's paying me anything.

    I am have not and will not be picking up my desk things.
