I have a new-found respect for those of you bloggers who work outside the home . . . not to mention those of you who are parents, too! I'm not even ON my new away-from-home work schedule yet and already I can't seem to find the time or energy to blog! Nights that I could squeeze it in, I am just too darn tired. But, I do miss it, and I liked it when I was on that (short-lived) roll.
Anyway. I had my second interview for that social services-type job on Monday, and they said they'd let me know by the end of the day tomorrow. Not having heard back from them right away makes me worry that I wasn't their A-1, absolutely-no-question choice. :( But, I will sit tight and wait another 30 hours. (What choice do I have?!)
After that interview, I went "downtown" to speak with a business owner who I'd introduced myself to when I first learned I'd need to get a job in The Real World. At that time, my modus operandi was to seek out stores and businesses that I'D choose to work for . . . rather than wait for jobs that I might have to take out of necessity rather than desire. And, it worked! I will start working for her mid-June (maybe a little earlier) - either part-time or full-time, depending on whether or not I snag the advocacy position. And, bonus on this job, I'll be working with my "adopted daughter" (at right). (Yayyy!)
On Sunday, I got to hang out with her in Duluth. After a yummy, yummy lunch at the new sushi place in town (Hanabi), we spent some time on Park Point. Below is a picture of the dogs and yours truly that I stole from her blog.
I've gotten a small bit of outside work done in this last week or so, but 'small' is the key adjective, unfortunately. I sure do want to spend more time outside before the bugs really hit (mosquitoes have been seen and have bitten . . . fortunately, I'M not sweet enough for them - yet).
I've been debating whether or not to turn the Central Boiler off for the season. Temperatures were nearly back to normal last week with the mercury in the low 20s at night. But, now it's back up, and I slept with only a sheet on last night since the outside temperature was in the high 50s! It's always six-of-one & half-a-dozen-of-another at this time of the year, gambling whether or not to turn the heat off.
I'll try to take some outside pictures today. Haven't done much of that lately, and it's about time I showed you what our early-spring mid-April is looking like. Have a good Thursday!
