This may come as a shock

I had a job interview today.? A real live job interview.? One where I had to actually think about what shoes I was going to wear and put on lipstick.? A job that (if I get it) would pay me real money and I would work in an office.? The thought of having a job scares the crap out of me.? I don’t want to miss out on anything with the boy, but he and I are at the point that we need our space.? Oh and money, I like money.

I don’t want to go into detail about the whole thing too much because there are a good number of locals that read my blog and I’m one of 8 candidates for the job.? Needless to say I haven’t interviewed for a job since 2002 and I didn’t totally suck at it.? I feel fairly qualified for the job and am passionate about the position so I think that is a bonus.

They hope to have a decision by the beginning of next week.? It’s a fast process.? I think it went well.? Their parting words were, “your knowledge of our vendors is impressive.”? That’s good right?? Or did I name drop too much?

Now if you’ll pardon me I’m going to have a really spicy Indian dinner, drink a few glasses of wine and celebrate Dine out for Life Night in style, with my two main men.

    OMG….Elle….if you only knew how much I understand the need for “space.” Good for you. They will be total dumbasses if they pass you up!

  3. Good luck! It’s a hard line to draw between needing space and going insane. I’m still finding it….

  4. A job! Shoe money! Woohoo! Good luck!

    Good luck! I love being back at work … it’s so much easier than being a SAHM. Plus you get adult conversation, chance to go out for lunch (with adults) and money.

    I have also enjoyed my evenings more with Rita … and looking forward to the entire weekend together!!!
