I don’t think Mark’s cleaning guy likes me much. Today when he saw me it went something like “Oh – your here!” It messed up my morning a bit so I didn’t shower before I went to the eye doctor. That wasn’t my favorite. I needed/ordered new glasses and sunglasses. The prescription isn’t changing much; but the astigmatism continues change. I spent way too much money. Then I waited for a phone call that didn’t work out quite like I wanted. But I finally got my car which cost more money than I wanted to spend again. :( But my car looks great but took FOREVER. Then I went to the gym for a quick – run. Had dinner with Mark and John and I new friend but I forgot his name. We ate at the Barrio Cafe; it was AWESOME. The new friend was cool and very tolerant of me which gives him an A+ in my book. Then I finished my yoga workout. The resume gods are to speak tomorow. ;-)
All my love-
I got my hair done today. I had a crazy line of demarcation between blonde and not as blonde with a whole lot of gray sprinkled in. Its all gone which is good; I decided to go BIG. Meaning I went different; see below.
I might have been fibbing a bit. :-) Below is the new hair!
Then I went a got a Tutu for the Color Run this weekend after which I hit Kinko’s for printing and scanning. Then I was back to the gym for running and yoga. Made some more calls and I still have some decisions to make. Ugh! :(
Chatted with Mark for a bit; he had quit a day. My car still isn’t done. :(
Then off to bed; I head to the eye doctor in the morning. No news from some peeps I really want to hear from.
All my love-
Hola Chicas and Chicos!! Not much new here. I tried to visit a toastmaster meeting this week but it was a no go. It was at a police station and there was just a lot of angry looking folks (policemen) which deterred me from just parking (at the records lot) and heading in. I went to the gym and met a person who is defies ALL explanation. He was orange with muscles and chains – a head bigger than mine and a waist that is smaller than mine. I totally got ogled; my earphones didn’t hold him at bay. But we talked a little and I ran. Then I came home and made dinner but Mark had work plans so he missed out. We had baked chicken and mushrooms with Brussel sprouts and salad. It was pretty good. Then I yoga-ed. Finished up some stuff I had to do. I called my Oma and my dad. I don’t think I was short or bitchy. Yippee! :-)
I still miss Karen.
Weekend was okay. I went to a new members meet-up on Saturday. Meet some nice ladies and kind of a dicky boy. I picked up my Christmas present from the Nerd Herd with only 56 viruses and then I went the gym. Run Forest Run followed by yoga. I went out with 2 ladies from Friday night were I meet a boy who attempted to touch my tonsils with his tongue. I pressed my lips together to the point he couldn’t make it in my mouth but he did kiss me since at some point I can only bend so far backward away from the oncoming face. After that episode, I asked what his success rate was with that technique. He told me he did quite well in America which truly frightened me. So when he turned around for a second, I ran home. On Sunday, I met Veronica for meditation and brunch. I couldn’t stay awake for meditation but i liked it anyway. I came home and prepped for dinner. Then I went to the gym for more – Run Forrest Run. By the time I got home Patrick and David were there which was lovely but no yoga. :( I really like them even when they don’t agree with me enough. Mark did have a running commentary on my timeliness for cleaning and the way I did it which didn’t make me SUPER happy. Today I ran Forest ran and the yoga-ed more. I can touch my hands on the floor in a forward fold and it doesn’t even feel that bad. I think I finished all of my PMI training credits tonight in order to maintain my certification and I realized that I sorta might have some jobs. My PMI training was Agile – totally awful and how to handle difficult employees which wasn’t bad but a little stressful cause difficult employees are just so damn stressful (even when you just remember). My friend Kurt talked to me a bit. I miss that guy. Plus – i even got to talk to my sis. Still love her. I really miss Karen, I miss having someone to help be my sounding board. My mommy bought me a new dress….. I can’t wait till I get it. :-)
All my love-
PS – Dad the new dress helped my mood. Can you imagine the mood prior to the new dress???
Just a quick note before bed. I went to the dentist and got x-rays, my teeth cleaned, and I was told I needed more crowns. I showed up at the dentist which had castles, dragons, and knights all over the wall. The sign outside the practice said Magic Smiles for Kids. About 3 years ago they started seeing adults and became Magic Smiles for the Ages; I was happy there was no clown room. The dentist and their staff was amazing. My teeth look great and feel good, as well. I went to see the hypnotist; it made me feel better. Then off to the gym for running and yoga. After which Mark and I went the the grocery store. He and John heading out for camping and I got to head to my friends house for a girls night. It was fun we played games like blind fold the make – up artist, pictionary and more. Off to bed. Day 5 and the resume gods are still silent.
All my love-
It was a long day. Interviews and no news abound, bills were paid and the resume gods remain silent. Dentist appointments were made and I caught up with some friends. I can barely keep my eyes open; I am heading to bed. But I leave you all with the quote that I struggle to remember everyday these days. because today it might be true..
“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
Sweet dreams! All my love
I lost my post a couple of times. So here goes again. Here are some fun pics from my quick trip to Denver.
I love Patrick. We both wished Mark and David could have been there.
Patrick showed me the Civic Center decked out for the holidays. Moments earlier I had been on my ass. It was soooo slippery.
Next, we went to drag queen Bingo. I love the dobbers.
Last night I had an interview that I think went really well. I feel like I am starting to get the hang of phone interviews and such. The guy was cool and that company had some neat opportunities overseas. If I did a year in Portland, I then could decide to move onward. Then Mark, John and I had dinner with Kevin and a new guy at Crudo. It was good (I even tried to eat pig ears) and nice to get out. I went home to finish a skills assessment which I am pretty sure wasn’t great. I way over thought it. Had a really weird call with a recruiter today for a staffing firm which felt more like a call to see how much interest I was getting from other peeps/companies. Got a call yesterday morning that loved which pretty much meant that I had to eat my words about how awful something was. But then that opportunity got all flubbed up so I could go back to my land of hate and deep mistrust. That is feels nicer and way more normal.
Still nothing from the resume gods….. :(
All my love-
