Starting to Come Back

So, after my morose come-down bullshit (obscure movie reference) the other day, I am starting to climb out of the hole I dug for myself.

About 3 weeks ago, I had a phone interview for a job with a local midstream energy company. That led to a face-to-face interview last Friday, which seemed to go well. Following on from that, tomorrow I have a lunch date with the hiring manager and one of his organization's key internal clients. So, I am guessing I am still in the running. Which is good because, after 3 days of unemployment, I am finding that the role of house frau doesn't fit me well.

Additionally, over the last few days I have received two trade packages and a rather thick, unsolicited package from another card blogger and that has greatly improved my mood.

I am starting to map out some posts in between looking for work and my household chores. It will probably be a few days more before they start to appear. But, for those that have inquired, I'm doing fine and hope to be back in the swing here soon.

And, no, I have no intent of getting any Series 1. Job or not.


  1. Glad things are looking up.

    I'm always on the other end of things -- hoping my employees don't leave (unless they're lousy) and then desperately trying to find someone who is a good worker when someone inevitably leaves.

  2. Good luck with the interview/lunch! You're just one state south of me so I'll be thinking of you. Try and keep your head up. You know you rock and your employer will regret not having you around. Oh, and don't eat any more pills you find lying around.

  3. just so you know, after reading your post, i went to amazon and ordered cardboard gods. it arrived yesterday, and a good read so far - and not at all what i expected. in fact, it has a very blog-entry-type feel that many of the bloggers out there do very well - YOU included!

    so, for that... THANKS!
