Went to the beach last Thursday – it was a gorgeous day, really wonderful. Well, if you overlooked the lovely brown surf. Yep, brown. It’s that time of year where the tide is murky and full of sand. Otherwise it was great. Jason built sandcastles, I read a good book. On the way back home we stopped at Chelsey’s mall (Baybrook – by her house) and I bought a jacket for my interview on Friday. We got home at 10pm and got all that sand off of us. Put Jason to bed & then I worked on coloring my hair – I couldn’t take the gray any longer. I am ok with the color it came out, wasn’t thrilled with it at first but it has been fading out & mellowing, so now it’s ok. I’ll probably like it more in a week or so.
Friday I had the interview I was really hoping to get – and it went *really* well. You know it’s a good sign when the CEO tells you, “I am really glad I got to meet you.” I was thrilled. (They called me back today for a second interview tomorrow. Yeah!!!) Then I went to Fuddrucker’s for Jason’s lunch with his teacher – he got a 98 on his TAAS test, and they went out to celebrate. Afterwards he went to his friend Kevin’s house to play, and I ran some errands. Went to pick him up at 5, and his mom & I chatted until 6. Then it was home for dinner, followed by going to my parent’s house to see my cousin Jeanette who was in town from Beaumont with her 2 kids for the night. They had to leave at 5am for the airport, so it was a pretty short visit. Hopefully we can get together in the next few weeks though.
Saturday morning Jason had a swim meet here at the subdivision pool. We had to be there at (ugh) 7am. After the meet we came home and both took a nap! Two “late” nights in a row caught up with us. The cable was out when we first got home, which meant the cable modem was out too. Again. Cable TV came back on – but the modem didn’t. So, I just stayed offline. Didn’t do much of anything Saturday night. Watched Shanghai Noon on Starz. Went to bed early.
Sunday, another lazy day. I finally went to tan and go to the gym at 5, only to discover that the tanning place closes at 5 on Sunday – not 6 like I thought. Oops. I went to the gym though and worked out. Called Naomi first to see if she was up for a movie later; we went to see Bridget Jones’ Diary at 10:30 Sunday night. It was good, I am glad I finally got to see it. I was quite amused and picked up some good British slang to use too.
Yesterday we went to Wal-Mart to buy flowers for the patio (hopefully the damn squirrels won’t eat these – anyone have suggestions to keep them out?) and then to the pool. Kristie, my neighbor that used to live upstairs, called while we were at Wal-Mart and commented that the only bad thing about the house she is renting is that there isn’t a pool … I told her to come on over! So she came by late in the afternoon and we sat around the pool and chatted while Jason swam. Ordered a pizza and had it delivered poolside. Finally came in at about 8:30 or so. It was a really nice way to wind up the weekend. Got Jason off to bed and finally broke down & called RoadRunner – the cable modem still wasn’t getting a strong enough signal. I worked with them for a little bit – and it’s back on now! Yeah!
Now I just have to figure out what to wear for this second interview tomorrow. Don’t you hate it when you wear your great interview outfit to the first interview … then you have nothing to wear for the second one? I may just have to go shopping later. Off to raid the closet and see what I can come up with…
