It doesn't /seem/ like these things would take time, but they did, and HOW THEY HURT MY CHECKING ACCOUNT. YEEOWWWWCH.
Just because you have money left over from bills doesn't mean you have "fun spending money". I've already purchased a couple of things for the spawnlette's Christmas, and have gotta say (or as old-timers know) I've NEVER been ahead on Christmas. Usually, I'm stuck shopping last-minute with all the men in town. lolol Me and 573825843289429 men on Christmas eve, buying up all those "gift baskets good for one or the other gender". Maybe it won't be as scary and crappy this year as I've anticipated.
Which of course segues into my parent's estate and all that, which I can't discuss. I can say it's being handled now, thank God, and hopefully won't be further mishandled.
I need to dumb down my CV into a respectable but not formidable resume. I tried starting on that today, but still find "good reason" to leave stuff in. I know my awards and honors don't count, there's no such thing as an objective anymore and you're supposed to keep it at two pages, tops. I have WAY too much experience doing everything, training on EVERYTHING and trying EVERYTHING. It's not a resume. It's a freaking Cliff Note's version of my life, and I should have it published instead of trying to find a job with it. There's that.
Trying to stay optimistic, but it's SOOO hard in this economy.
Today, I'm supposed to dress "business casual" but find myself with really nice suits and jeans. I don't really have happy medium selections. Whatever happened to just "business" when you're going to be interviewing FOR a business position?! This alone is enough to stress me out. I've settled on some cool gray, old-fashioned looking suede shoes (love them!), black slacks, a dove-colored silk blouse, and a black/gray tiny houndstooth jacket. That's upward business casual, right? I hope so anyhoo. I intentionally chose flats because in heels, I tower over EVERYONE I've met so far. That's just a tad bit intimidating and that's not how I want to come across.
Woke up freezing, since my dumbass left a window open. Greaaaaaaat. Have the sniffles, and have been trying to catch a cold this past week/weekend. Hopefully, that'll go away. I don't need to get sick right now, with so many interviews and things to accomplish (which includes paring down my freakin' three-closet wardrobe). I can't decide whether to sell some (I have some good clothes), give them to the shelter, or trash my too-casual house cleaning clothes. I HAVE to start throwing things away whether I like it or not. I'm so tired of having all this crap around me I could scream, and it doesn't help that I have more movies than any Blockbuster. I could definitely have a yard sale for DVDs, and maybe make some decent coin that way.
Desperate much? Yashhh I yam, and not too proud to admit it, especially after paying out $2,5837952589028590285092 in bills today.
Tomorrow, the HVAC-R guy is coming to service the heater. I haven't used it but once this year, but it will start getting colder soon. He's going to address the AC leak from my neighbor, too, I hope. This has caused damage *I* will have to pay, no doubt. *sigh* Anyyyyyyyway. Not gonna freak out over that right now.
Am still doing well on the patch, and it no longer burns my skin. I don't understand why not, since I was so sensitive before, but am glad I don't bear all those scars now. It works, and I'm still functional in the day. That's always a good thing.
The spawnlette's pahtay is this Saturday. Pray for us.
That is all.
