Update on that job....

It didn't work out. As I expected, it was more of a courtesy meeting than an actual interview. Oh well. He was nice about it, they just don't have work.


I have ANOTHER opportunity that just popped up out of the blue. I'm going to work for my dad's firm! It's something I've always wanted to do, but it the timing has never been quite right and the circumstances favorable for all. But now they are! I'm going to work from home on projects out of the Amarillo and Lubbock offices, so I won't be working directly for my dad (which is probably good). I'm a bit nervous, as I haven't been working in so long and I won't have an office environment to encourage my productivity. But hopefully they'll be enough for me to do that I don't have to worry about that!

So wish me luck! I start after Labor Day, and Drew starts day care the week before that, so I'll have some time to set up my office, etc. I'm excited!

Man, That Was EXCITING!!!

Did you see the race last night? The men's 4x100 relay? OMG, it was TOO exciting! I have never jumped up and screamed at the TV like that over a swim race, but I just couldn't help it! MAN! What a photo finish! I couldn't believe Lezak managed to over-take that cocky Frenchman. If you missed it, you really missed a fantastic performance. And, Phelps quest for 8 Golds is still intact. Whew! It's all about the medal count, ya know.

I am really enjoying the Olympics this year. I'm even watching the weightlifting right now on MSNBC. Hmm, maybe I need something to do?

Clearly he is bothered by this news.

Back In The Saddle Again

I have a job interview this afternoon. It's right up the road from the New House, so super-convenient, and I used to work in their Austin office before I became Mrs. Bubba.

For some reason, my biggest worry leading up to this is what I'm going to wear! I don't know yet whether or not the man I'm meeting with is just meeting me because I used to work for the company, or if they truly have a desire to have me. My old job at The Firm doesn't seem to want me anymore, so I'm not sure about this one. At least I have an interview. Well, that's what I'm calling it. It could be a 'nice-to-meet-you-but-you-are-over/under-qualified-for-what-we-
have-available' meeting. Which will just suck.

So, that brings me back to the wardrobe issue. I have not worn work clothes in 18 months. Heck, I really haven't worn any of my old clothes since right at 2 years ago, thanks to my early-bulging belly and need to wear maternity pants early-on. I haven't even tried on some of these clothes to make sure they fit. Yikes! And, it's way too damn hot outside to even attempt nice dress pants, all of which are lined and that shit just sticks to your legs WAY too easily. So, skirt it is. Thankfully, the first few I pulled out are a bit tight, but will work. Whew! Pair it with a new shirt my Mama got me way back in January, when I was SUPPOSED to be going back to work, and I will hopefully look pretty snappy. If not completely over-dressed for casual Friday. Oh well, better to be over-dressed than under.

I was able to swing it for late-afternoon so Bubba can come home from work early to watch the Munchkin.

Hopefully it all goes well! Although I still can't figure out why I'm not nervous. That is SOOO not like me....
