Of all the days

Of all the days to forget my bra and underwear!  I had gone to my temp job and worked out there, and did some work before going to my interview.  No underwear.  So, I washed the underwear I had and used blow-dryers to dry them. And used my sweaty sports bra as my bra.  It ended up working out ok.

So this was a second interview for one job. I have no idea how it went. I was supposed to meet with two higher-ups who couldn't show up, and so ended up with two people I had already met with, and another woman they pulled in last minute. So, either they are very disorganized, I am not important, or I'm so important they don't need to meet me. I will say that one person I would be working with walked me out and chatted with me a bit, so that was nice.  Good sign?  Who knows.  I am not assuming anything. I won't know anything until the end of the month.

In the meantime, I have to work on my contract work and get that done.

Went up to Seattle for my nephew's graduation from high school. It was great to get away and just hang out with family and not think. I was very out of it. Someone at a party asked me what I was looking for in terms of work and I couldn't answer because I just didn't want to think about it.  So I didn't.  But had a great time.

Now I must go send references....

I know you are weeping because I haven't been writing much. LIkely I'll have more time when M leaves.  :-(

There is something kind of insulting about people who are meant to be interviewing you not showing up. But maybe the fact that they didn't cancel, but made do with whom they had on hand is a good sign? Well, break a leg!
Glad you were able to get the job hunt off of your mind for awhile while visting your family.

Job hunting has become so not something that I count on. I never know what anything means. I just keep doing it and hope that some day, someone will tell me that I have a job. Sigh.

But good luck! I'm glad you got to get away for a bit and not think about it.

Love the story about forgetting the underthings. You can't make stuff like that up.

Congrats to your nephew, the new graduate!

I had a nephew who graduated a few weeks ago from high school, and then his brother graduated from college on Friday. I almost miss that feeling of going to school and graduating, but not enough to go back.
