"Will hiding in a cavern with stockpiled chocolate goods be any part of this plan?"

Some folks have requested to know what happened at the interview the other day, gluttons for my punishment. Matt had an interesting take in that the place where I went for the interview is sort of known for screw-ups and even though it's upsetting it might actually be a sign as per why I don't want to work there anyway. Alas, here is what happened. I said 10:30 and she said 10:30 and then she wrote down 9:30 in two places which she didn't hesitate to remind me. I re-scheduled but there's no way to fix it, decisions get made in the first 30 seconds and mine are well up. It comes down to very little. I could draw it out but I ought to have called to confirm like the dentist does and it's all my fault even though it's not really because I know she wasn't listening to me, not really. Listening more than talking is the key to everything and also getting written confirmation.

But forget about it because it's snowing and beautiful out. We've gotten the short end of the stick snow wise this year so it's pretty exciting. Right now I'm cooking and cleaning and being a housewife. I cleaned out my closet and I found lots of great clothes I completely forgot I had. This is good because a lot of my jeans aren't fitting that well. I haven't lost all that much weight but my jeans are crazy loose. This is positive because I haven't been a very good weight watcher lately. I'm eating pretty well but I'm not tracking. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I'm planning to start over but it hasn't been a worse week than any other. I'm hovering just under where I've been hovering and I'm almost ready to push harder. This week has been great in a way because I have lots of pre-cooked meals in the fridge and that just makes things so easy. It's not all weight watcher's friendly food but generally high in protein and lower in fat and I'm not looking for snacks all the time. It's something I need to remember, good food in the fridge makes all the difference in how I feel about my day.

Snowing? Hard to grasp that. It's daffodil season here.

Last job interview I had, both Google Maps and Mapquest messed up on the directions. I ended up showing up late for the interview.

I'm not sure I'd want to work with/for someone who says one thing and writes another. Nothing but trouble.

Hello! I stumbled upon your blog using the next blog feature, and I am also blogging about weight loss and what not. Anyway I wanted to say good job, not tha tyou need to hear it from me, but every once in awhile it is nice to hear from someone, even if maybe you don't know that person?
I love reading about other people getting fit and their weight loss journey.
