Opening her mouth and removing doubt
Home Again Jiggity Job
July 12, 2005
So the trip was in a word - fabulous. I fully disconnected from work, the kids and husband and I all had a wonderful time. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the beach, TBG enjoyed his deep sea fishing adventure, and I enjoyed being back in Texas for a blessed 10 days. Even though it was hotter than the surface of the sun. And damper than the ocean floor. Simultaneously.
Dang I forgot what the heat felt like down there.
Anyway - we took an extra 2 days coming home and went through San Antonio and did the whole riverwalk/tour boat/alamo deal and then through Austin to visit my alma mater. Hit the co-op and bought the whole family UT shirts and then like the nerds we aspire to be, wore them to dinner. We'd actually had enough Mexican food (and you can't take a Kansas Citian to barbecue in Texas without them getting defensive) so we went to my next-best: Hula Hut. It was as kitchy as I remembered, and 2 Hu-la-la's later, I was feeling no pain. Come to think of it, I am not sure I could feel my toes either.
Ah well. Home is good, work still sucks, but at least my attitude is refreshed.
On the job front: Competitor called while we were away saying "we're still interested but we have 2 more interviews - just want to make sure you're still interested."
And my old employer called and set up an interview for Thursday. In another moment of serendipity - it turns out my interview is with the good friend/former colleague of my old boss. So I think unless there turns out to be another candidate with more years of experience, I should be holding a pretty strong position.
It would be nice to be offered a choice. Meanwhile, its lunch time, and I have a sammich with my name on it. (After the sheer quantity of seafood and mexican food we ingested last week, we're on a strict salad/sammich/light food diet.) Today marks my return to the gym. I'll let you know how that goes!
