I Had a Giant Rubber Shark and It Really Made a Mark

Monday, May 28, 2012


Today's song is for all of the job prospects I currently have.

Yeah, really.

I have three lives ones. And I mean, really live ones. As in, I've had phone screens with all three. And I had an in-person with one, there's an in-person scheduled with the second and I submitted a writing sample for the third.

And - yeehaw - these are all actually what I want to do. What I concept.

So, we'll see.

Trying not to be too weird about it. Trying not to get my hopes up too much. Trying not to set myself up for, perhaps, a nasty fall.

So, we'll see.

Anyway - weight stuff - argh - forget it. Not gonna talk about that. I have had some major issues with what is likely menopausal sleep issues rearing an ugly head. Lovely. Because I just NEED to go through my days like a zombie, unable to really smack the hell out of exercise and burn calories. 'Cause, you know, I can just sit around all day long.



Anyway - last week was freakishly full of job search stuff. This week promises to be more of the same. Of course that's all another reason for me to be beat. Oh and there were car issues. Expensive ones. And an anniversary celebration (we hit 20 years of married life) that went awry, due to said automotive issues.

So, 50 years is gold. 25 years is silver. Apparently, for your 20th wedding anniversary, the traditional gift is auto parts. Who knew?

I'll let you know how the week goes.

    I'm taking synthetic progesterone to deal with the perimenopausal symptoms. One of the big problems I had was insomnia and anxiety that was crippling for 5 to 7 days before/during my cycle. The other big problem was my menstrual cycle was 19 days. Do the math. Not much sleep.

    Anyway, 10 days of progesterone was a miracle for me. No more anxiety/insomnia. Regular cycle. It fixed the problem immediately. Maybe a low dose of hormones can get you through the worst of it. It's really stinks to not get enough sleep.

    Good luck with the job search. I hope it works out for you.

    I'll keep my body parts crossed for one of the jobs coming through. A friend pointed out once that our intestines are always crossed. I hope that helps even more.
    Bummer about the cah and the wackadoodle sleeping. Congrats on 20 years, though, that's a majuh accomplishment!

    Hubby is driving the "back up" vehicle right now as his needs some repair. Trying to decide if it is just time to get a new one.

    May the best job win! Nice to be in the position to choose...which is where it sounds like you will be this week!

    Congratulations on your 20th wedding anniversary! Sorry your celebration went awry! There are few things I hate spending money on more than auto repair.

    Good luck with all the irons in the fire on the job front!
