  • Thanks y'all. What I'm fantasizing/ daydreaming about is that I'll get an interview from the firm that's been cooling their heels this week and both of them want me, turning it into a bidding war, where I choose the best pay/ benefits package. THAT'd be nice... *continues visualizing/ fantasizing*

      • I guess that's a hint:
        I was thinking about the whole job thing, wondering if I should take a job in my field that pays spectacularly or take one where I'm not forced to be a manager and get lots of field time, ideally with H&H (my dream job.) I was fooling around on Stumbleupon at the same time and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" came up twice in a row. I'll take a clue. I read up on the headhunter's job offer (at least, I think it's the right one, there can't be that many EIT positions in a town of 10,500) and it sounds like a great job AND the pay is where I wanted it to be. I think all this shit's coming full circle. I think my life is finally swinging back to circle.

          • Heading up to Lubbock to get clothes that fit, spend some time with my aunt and possibly my cousin (she's honestly my favorite of my parents' siblings, really cool and fun) and spend the night with Husband. He's in the field this week. Taking the laptop with me, so I'll be on and off the boards.

                • Got some clothes tht fit, including a pair of decent black slacks. It's still hard as hell to find pants that fit. Hell, it's hard to find size 2s, let alone size 2s that fit. I found several cute pairs of pants in my size, but I'm too cheap to pay more than $30 for pants or jeans. $160 for a pair of jeans is asinine.
                  Walked all over the mall in Lubbock. Ate a chicken fruit salad at Chik- Fil- A, naked enchiladas (no tortillas, just meat, sauce and cheese), and (it was the only food available and I was STARVING) 2 slices of pizza (only 1.5 slices of crust.)
                  Came home, bought some wild mahi mahi and a sweet potato to cook for whatever my main meal is today. I'll probably add the last of my broccoli and some green beans to that pile of food.

                  • Bone Machine-
                    I grew up on the po' side of town. My momma taught me well: no jeans/ pants are worth more than $20 (adjusted upward for inflation to $30), no t- shirt is worth more than $5, $7 if it has decorations on it, nothing except a winter coat is worth more than $30. I've made exception for a damn fine suit and a couple blazers. Even my winter coat (faux fur lined lambskin trench coat style with a hood) cost only $75 (wilson's summer sale, originally $400.) I'm on very strict budget until I get a new job, but my old batch of jeans were held on with belts, literally. So I coughed up $20 for a pair of Calvin Klein jeans that are just a tetch too small and $30 for a pair of perfect black slacks (perfect as in they aren't skintight on my thighs, they don't have a gap in the back, have room for my ass, and are boot cut. I'm goin back for another pair if I get down to 0, I may even break down and actually pay full price).

                        So throw this on the meditation fire: what is happening to you right now is on your path for a reason. You can learn from it.

                        Thank you. I'll try. I've had a lot to think about recently, but I have a feeling this all plays into a lesson about relying on others. I
                        It seems like that might be the one. It's a tough one for those of us who are so used to 'doing' for others - mostly as a way to be in control and to avoid feeling the more uncomfortable things life sometimes throws our way. I got this one in spades this summer - and I leaned into it. It was hard. It was uncomfortable but I came out of it on the other side knowing that there are people who are there for me **no matter what**. Six months ago, that's not something I'd have believed.

                        Lean into it.

                          I am. It's a bitch kitty, but I'm trying to.
                          Interview supposedly next week. We'll see.
                          Had grilled catfish, caramelized onions, romaine and tomato salad, and pork rinds with salsa for dinner. Mahi mahi tomorrow.
                          Still catching up on sleep. Good night.

                              • I don't have any good thrift stores around me anymore. Dang it! I 'want' some new jeans and slacks, but I'm too cheap and to broke! I keep telling myself to wait, because I'm going to lose more weight. Good excuses for now.
