    Good to be back here with my buddies. Still having trouble accessing from work which is probably just as well. At home I can get from the computer turned off to here in less than a minute, which if you still have dial-up you can appreciate my wonder and amazement.
    Count your blessings!

    Good news: I have a job interview that I am really qualified for and think I have an edge for, but I am so nervous I threw up. It's in 45 min and its freezing cold here today and my car heater went out. (It's 29 here)
    I am not cold as I am sweating from nervousness.

    I took an ativan to calm me down and it hasn't done anything.

    I just hope I don't screw this up!

    I know that doesn't sound like good news, but its the first interview that I think I really can get the job with my qualifications. But the rest hinges on me and this morning, I am not me!

    But there wasn't a good news, but nervous thread, so I posted here!

    Aww. myrosiedog, I hope your nerves settle and you shine during your interview!

    Pom - I owe you a phone call I know, been swamped with stuff lately. Sounds like surgery may be the answer to a prayer.

    Gut - Glad to see you back. PC problems just plain SUCK!

    Now if we could just find Gabriel, all would be right in my FORT world.

    My good news, well I had a bit of a lull here at work, so I just thought I would check in.

    WWOOOOOHOOOOO

    I am a member of the working class once again.

    STart on Mon. I will be the office manager for a company that sells high end and I do mean HIGH END (good lord at these things) window and door company.

    Right now only 3 people in the office including me and its me and 2 men, so none of that woman office drama crap. I work better with men.

    Gutmutter, the same thing happened with my computer. But better to have a working computer than none at all!

    The composition program is going great. Everyone there is so talented (and older too ). I feel pretty honored to be a part of that group.

    And a big congrats to myrosiedog!

    Thanks guys. My husband asked me tonight what I was going to do tomorrow and I said: I am going to lay in bed ALL DAY and read. I have only a few more days of freedom left and I am doing NOTHING. I am going to stay in my pajamas (its cold here, so its good to stay in) and I may not even brush my teeth!

    I am not lifting anything heavier than my coffee cup. I plan to be a total and all out lazy, good for nothing bum tomorrow. Cause next week its back to the 40 hour grind. Don't mind the money tho! And the job actually looks like it will rock because I get to be in charge at some point! (I like being in charge!)

    CONGRATS myrosiedog! You will shine in your new job, I'm sure. So sorry you got so nervous though...ativan is wonderful though isn't it .

    -------------

    My little good news is my sweetie is coming for a visit over the weekend. The weather will be cold with possible snow so I'm thinking fireplace, movie and a bowl of hot chili with cornbread!

    I really missed him.
    Live simply ~ Love generously~ Care deeply~ Speak kindly
