Trivial and other pursuits

Went on yet another job interview today. Yuk. I hate those, and I'm not even sure why I keep doing it. I oughta just kiss Oklahoma goodbye and find a job somewhere nice and warm year round. And then...a job posting in Kuwait caught my eye. I wonder what the weather's like there in December?

Yep. I'm a gypsy. I think I'm all settled in and really Oklahoma is a great place. We like it here. It's comfortable (well, except for the job thing for me.) But the thought of somewhere new is exciting. More people, more experiences to store in the memory bank. Stuff to dwell on when we're sitting in the rocker many years from now.

Yesterday, I joked about "free food" -- always good -- but the best part of the day as always was the great company that came with the food. After brunch five of us shimmied up to the table and played Trivial Pursuit. Something I had not done in a long time. It was fun, and in the process we learned that everyone is an expert at something or the other. And, it's amazing the amount of crap we remember.

Still waiting to hear when D's funeral is going to be. It's gonna be a long week, I can tell already.
At least we had a nice weekend.

That is what good weekends are for; to help us face the hard week ahead of us. Hang in there with the interviews. Eventually one will click when it is the right fit and the whole process will run smooth.

Great news. I got the job. Part-time - designing -- which allows me to keep my freelance writing gigs -- and blog.

Thanks for the words of encouragement!
