Careful What You Wish For

I'm back in accounting almost full time now. I'm by myself in there two days a week. I'm zonked when I get home at night. We have two headhunters looking for an accountant and only have one interview scheduled so far. I hope we get more applicants soon.

I tried to call my brother last night but couldn't get them on either cell phone. I'll try again today. I just need a brother fix!

It's taken me two days to get around the ring. There are some beautiful quilts being made. And I see the fabric depressionists are sticking to their diet! Nancy's counting down the days for you - it's almost over! :)

Done absolutely no sewing. Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to get in the sewing room and figure out where I left off on Lisa's quilt. I also want to start the one-hour-a-day quilt, but that will have to wait. It's been fun viewing all your fabric choices. Good jobs!! And I must piece backings. Must! It would be nice to get all of those quilts off to be quilted and start afresh, so to speak. I mean, it's ridiculous at this point not to finish them.

Allergies have flared up again. It's real dry here and the dust really bothers me. Guess that comes from growing up where there's a bit of rainfall every day - or at least every week - to settle things down. Two or three more months of this dry stuff and then I'll be able to breathe easy for a few months.

Happy sewing to all my friends out in Blogland. Make a few stitches for me!

Gratitudes:

~ A strong resolve - I can do this!

~ Family and friends.

Yes Vicky, be VERY careful of what you wish for. I went from receptionist to now chief, cook, and bottle washer. I do reception, A/P, A/R, payroll and all scheduling and reservations for a community television station...in the span of 6 months! I just "wanted something easy" this time...HA!

I want to say so much about the challenges of your days but instead I'm just going to send a HUGE HUG!

I hope that they will consider your opinion when it comes to the hiring and look at why they cannot retain anyone in the position. Warm bodies ain't cuttin' it. No wonder you don't have any extra energy leftover when you come home.

((((HUGS)))) to you Vicky. I'd say I hope they find another accountant soon but that would probably mean they just took the first one they interviewed without looking for the right person for the job.

I'm going right now to the sewing room and the first few stitches will be in your honor.

I like it that you can type when there's bad days. I feel more "normal". There are days when there is no other way to describe it, but work s u c k s . But it's a means to an end. I know what it feels like to really like your job but have tough things happen at it. Oh well, the weekend is coming... Maybe time for quilting...

Yes, Vicky, you can get through this.. one hour at a time at work.

I wish you had more time for sewing. That always seems to make everything alright.

Have you talked to your brother yet?

How much do those accountants make? I could pass that nose thing and I'd like to relocate :-).
