Thanks for the well wishes. I got to tell Baba about the table she gave me that my dad and I were fixing yesterday. She seemed in good spirits, joking about how some people will do ANYTHING to get attention. I told her she'd just have to deal because we love doting on her. She was also trying, as usual, to get me to take some of her things because she doesn't need them and "maybe you could use them for your apartment!" She has been doing that since I was about 13 yrs old. I really hope to get up to Maine for a visit soon.
Boyfriend's interview at Macy's went well. He said he felt like he had a good rapport going with the interviewer. There's one other person being interviewed for the position and he should hear something by/around early next week. Line cook interview is tomorrow, which he potentially has a better chance of getting since it doesn't require experience. His experience for the guard position is from the Army, which is plenty of good experience, but it might not be quite what they're looking for/they might prefer someone who has held this kind of retail-guard position before.
