Update #1: Did I apply for the job? Yes I did! I got my guts together (with the help of my friends prompting me) and applied. I applied on the last possible day at the last possible hour. Ahhhh... feels good to have taken the plunge. Maybe it'll go nowhere as I have my
I had a crazy dream about this last night though: Somehow, I found out for sure that this job posting was rigged and was totally t-ed at the head of HR. So much so that I recruited a friend and we pelted the hr guy with walnuts (in their shells). My last throw hit him so hard that it made a hole in his sweater. At that point, my friend & I took off running. While running, my friend pulled out a canister of cashews and wanted to stop into a church to get pepper to sprinkle on them. That was it. Weird eh!??
Update #2: Is my DH still in that horrible job? Yes. There's been a lot of sh*t going on at his job over the past few months. A few weeks ago, it got to the point that DH called in sick for a few days because he just needed to get some space and perspective on it.
By the end of his self-imposed hiatus, DH went back to work to put in his transfer papers. Management freaked and refused to even let him file his papers. They didn't know that the sh*t had gotten to the point it had gotten to (or they did and were just not sure what to do). Either way, the kingpin of the jerks was hauled in by management and told he was being transferred asap. This transfer still hasn't happened but we're hoping that once this occurs, the rest of the jerks will stop their crap. You know how the theory goes...cut the head off the snake...
Update #3: How's my smelly cat? He's awesome. No more pooping around the house.
And that crazy weight loss? It was totally a mistake on the vet's part. A relief for me but at the same time, a very big "doh!" on the vet's work. There was never any weight loss. The vet had weighed my cat inside his carrier last year and without his carrier this year...hence, the
Update #4: How's my mum? She's okay. Nothing has really changed but I thought I keep all my readers updated. Speaking of my mom, I had a really weird phone call from an old friend last week that I'm still thinking about. This is how it went:
Friend: Hey....how are you?
Me: Uh, fine...we haven't talked in ages! (I've actually called her tons of times and left messages but never received any calls back)
Friend: well, first off, I wanted to get some information from you that I know you have (blah blah blah...)
After I give her the info, she says "geez...we haven't talked in so long. How have you been doing? How's your mommmmmyy...has she passed away yet?"
OMG. WHO ASKS THAT???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I answered as best as I could by saying "yeah...she's fine. Still chugging along. But if something happened, don't you think I would have called you?". She said something about it being so long since we've talked that she wasn't sure if I would have called. I didn't even get into the number of unanswered messages that I've left over the past year. I was at work so I made an excuse to end the conversation. I am still reeling. What a bizarre thing to ask someone!
That's all for the updates today...off to get my eyebrows waxed. I know a fellow blogger who will smile about that :)
