Who's Here?

Just got the kiddo to bed and feeling lazy tonight.  We stayed up way late last night watching the NASA feed from the Curiosity landing, so I have been dragging a bit all day.  

I managed to get a resume out this morning before I went to work for a job posting I saw late last week.  Currently I am providing office support about ten hours a week for a small nonprofit.  The position I applied for is doing the same thing, plus some work with volunteers (which I do for the PTO.)  The job would offer 30 hours a week, great start and end time.  It is basically perfect, flexible and would allow me to continue doing the other nonprofit job and my volunteering.  My skill set is a great match, so if they don't consider me, they are crazy!  :)

What are you up to?  Anything to report, gripe about?

Re: Who's Here?

  • Well, damn.  You beat me.
  • Hey. I'm here. Listening to FI ream out Comcast. Fvcking whores. 

    I had two margaritas tonight. I came off my buzz quick when Comcast called. I'm pretty sure my liver could handle more, not sure if my work could. I need to be productive tomorrow.

    My weekend was fun. Elle and I got shitfaced on Saturday and drank to cure the hang over last night.

  • I'm trying to decide whether Drew and I make the best or worst ever drinking buddies.  We're co-enablers.

    Everytime the bartender came up to see if we needed anything, we would look at each other, shrug, and order another round.

    It was quite a weekend.

    FI and I are combining households. He will move in fully next weekend into the house we are renting, I will move in with kidlet about 10 days behind. He's moving from a town called Herndon, and I'm moving from Manassas. We're going to a town called Haymarket.

    FI and I agreed early in our dating that we wouldnt live together until engaged with a wedding date because of my daughter. Note that we do spend every other weekend together (when she's with her father), we've done budget talks together, compared incomes, taken my daughter on vacations together etc so we arent worried about living together. You know itll be ok when you've spent time sick together, time bumming on a couch in your pjs all day together, gone through the we must budget for something together and you're eating in rather than out for a month straight etc.

    I'm super excited about this move since when together we work like a family. Its going to be wonderful to come home to the two people who keep me going everyday that I love with all of my heart. Lots of work coming to us but it will all be worth it.

  • I'm here. Trying to calm down after a crazy past few hours. I had really bad chest pains this afternoon, went to the student health center and they basically didn't even care that I could have potentially been having a heart attack, told me they didn't have time to see me because they closed in 30 minutes, and told me to leave.

    Frantically called H (who is out of the country, which contributed even more to my freak out) and stayed on the phone with him while I drove to urgent care, the whole time freaking out on him like "Should I call 911? I really don't feel good...No, I'm ok I just need to get to urgent care...gah what should I do??!"

    Turns out I wasn't having a heart attack. And I'm still alive! Yay!

    Thanks, Elle and Peek! Yeah they told me they think it's costochondritis which is like an iflammation of the cartilage around your ribs/breastbone, which they pretty much can't do anything about except give you pain meds.
