Still have forward momentum!

Received the email today, that I should be receiving the phone call today to set up the 4th (and hopefully) last step of the interview process!! To say that I’m anxious, would be an understatement!

I (we) are both looking forward to and excited about this opportunity! I think it would be a really great thing for me. From what I’ve seen and know of the company thus far, I believe it would be a great fit.

The final stage is a meeting at corporate headquarters to meet the rest.

I will keep you all posted! Fingers crossed that all goes well!

Another Positive Sign

Had another step in the interview process yesterday! A perceived positive step! One step closer to the goal of being gainfully employed again!

It was one of those non-interview interviews, which are always hard to judge. But, I received some positive feed-back from the process.

Now it is just a waiting game to see when and if the next step will take place.

Still remaining optimistic and more hopeful!

Again, I ask you to please keep your fingers crossed, say a little prayer, or whatever it is you do to keep the positive vibes coming our way! Much Thanks!

Looking up!

Things are starting to look up for 2012! Have been interviewing with an exceptional company. Things are looking very promising! I am excited about the opportunity, the company, the product, and the territory. It puts me back into an industry that I’m comfortable, knowledgeable, and have my greatest success in. I’m trying very hard not to get my hopes up, but am very optimistic!

It would be a very good thing for me. And it looks like a company I could really make a career with! It would be a great thing for us! It’s a great opportunity, and the timing for us, couldn’t be better!

So, please keep your fingers crossed, say a prayer, or do whatever it is you do to send good vibes our way! Thanks!

Wow, its been awhile!

I knew it had been awhile since my last post, but didn’t think it had been that long.

I’ve been without internet and television for about two months. Honestly, it’s been surprisingly nice! I haven’t missed the internet really at all. Sure, I have not been able to do an effective job search, or update my blogs. Aside from that, it hasn’t been missed.

As far as the television goes, I miss my morning news. The worldly what’s happenings to start my day. But, I’m able to be a lot more productive around the house without the distractions of television.

I’ve been busy on honey-do items around the house, which has been a nice distraction from being jobless. The bad thing is that the little wifey has figured out how handy I can be. It has long been a secret, because I don’t like to brag about my capabilities.

On the job front, I do have a couple things in the works. Of which, one of them I am very excited about. I’ve been keeping it low key, I don’t want to be disappointed if it doesn’t work out. It would take me back to a comfort zone, to an industry that I’m very familiar with, and confident in. Although some of the things have changed, as do all things of progress. So, there would be a little bit of a learning curve to get back up to speed. It would be a very good thing for us! I’m hoping that it all goes extremely well and I can make a career with this company.

The marriage is great! I realize that its only been a few months! But, its a really good thing!

Well, that’s my update for now!

Ugh! Aaaaahhhhhh!

Sooooo, I have this huge project I’m working on. The person I asked to help, is helping for free. Which is great, don’t get me wrong! I appreciate the help, but don’t bitch at me about how we are behind schedule!

He has not hit a deadline yet! Whether it was one given to him and agreed on, or volunteered by him! Don’t bitch at me because I’m working eight to twelve hours a day everyday! And you are only working three to five hours a day and only four or five days a week!

I’m NOT the reason we are behind!!!

I’m pissed that you are screwing with my family because you are out of work!

On another note my eldest is getting ready to go back to college. Do you think that I have seen them or gotten so much as a phone call the entire summer break?! NOPE!!! Not a single contact! Yet, I’m sure somehow this is my fault!

And some how I’m the asshole in my new relationship! Yes, I’m unemployed at the moment, I agree. But I thought we would still talk and agree about things. Didn’t think they would pull the whole “I’m just the bank, I have no say” card! My bad! Makes me wonder how much say I will really have if we are ever on equal footing! God forbid I actually make more money! Is that what it takes to make decisions in a relationship? I thought it was compromise and mutual decisions! My bad!

It’s been awhile

So sorry that it has been so long since my last post. Things have become hectic and busy as the norm around here lately.

Still unemployed, but found a little project to consume most of my time lately. And this little heat wave we have been experiencing hasn’t helped any.

Onto the kids:
Watched my ex’s youngest for a few hours recently. My eldest came to pick the child up. Never came in the house, never even acknowledged that it was indeed them that took the child. Just took the child and the car seat without a word. I didn’t even know the child was gone.

My youngest seems to be coming around, albeit slowly. But at least the youngest talks to me!

I don’t know what’s up with the wife lately. I’m trying to blame it on the heat, but I think there is more to it. She has been extremely quite lately, and seems to be rather distant. Maybe its stress or overload from working too much. I don’t know, maybe I’m just paranoid.

I have a helper on my “little project”. He knows more about this than I do, so I don’t know who the helper really is. Anyway, I’m on a very tight time frame and it seems like he is REALLY dragging his feet on some of this stuff. Really starting to aggravate me, but I guess I can’t argue with free labor! Although I’m sure there will be a price to pay!

That’s all for now!
