I'm really, really tired, but just can't go a whole day without posting. I also have tons to post about, which actually makes it even harder. So we'll condense it into a list, because I like lists, and then hopefully we'll expand upon it all later.
1. Mr. Ashley got the job! Yay Mr. Ashley!! He starts on Monday and it's going to be great, we're all really excited. He will no longer be working from home, and he'll enjoy benefits and paid sick days and vacation time. Hooray!
2. I may get a job offer! I know, hold the freakin' phone, right? It's for a job I applied for months ago. I even followed up and got NO response. I had totally written it off and then some CEO calls me yesterday, and I called back out of curiosity, and not only is it for a job that is MADE.FOR.ME , but the salary and benefits are more than I would've ever hoped for and it's EXACTLY the bridge I need on my resume to qualify as a Writer.
I aced the phone interview. Seriously, no phone anxiety, great answers, funny, enthusiastic, endearing...you should have heard how long my "strengths" list was, I think she was sorry she asked. I feel very confident that if the final decision is up to her, it's mine. She said their local affiliate was doing personal interviews on the three final applicants next week, and that I'm one of them. Some of my answers were so good that they were met with a speechless "Wow" and by the end of the interview we were laughing and sharing our life philosophies (which are remarkably similar). She also mentioned several times that she loved my unconventional, and humorous, cover letter and resume and thought it said a lot about me. (she said this like it was a good thing)
So keep your fingers crossed. I was up until 5am this morning, my poor excited little mind racing, hoping, wishing, praying, planning, rinsing and repeating. I just couldn't sleep and then when I crossed that 3am threshold, I started panicking about my inability to sleep...a vicious cycle.
3. Our pretty blue eggs came today. Both shipments. One had three cracked eggs, and my dumb ass cracked another one during unpacking. Luckily both sellers sent extra, so I'm still ahead by 2. I spent all day at Gymboree letting the kids play, and then running around in the rain searching for a freaking water weinie because supposedly it will help me keep my incubator temperature more accurate. Water weinies are really easy to find until you need one, I might have to abandon that plan.
4. I don't know what else, but I'm tired and hopeful and have been productive. Everyone cross your fingers and keep them that way until my interview next week. I want it bad.
