If I had a fork

I'd stick it in my eye...

I'm so so so bored. Things will even out soon.
I had a job interview last week and I desperately want that job!! It sounds like something I would be totally interested in and is a great company to work for. They're wrapping up interviews by the second week of July. With so many candidates I've got to wonder what my chances are but I am trying to stay positive. The interview went really well in my eyes, and I thought the hiring manager seemed impressed with my skills.

I'm currently training a new employee to take over my position. She is doing fairly well and now I am stuck with no work to do. I give her the work, show her how to do it and she does it. Which makes my days here soooo long. I do not have a set day as to when I am leaving, just at some point in the near future once I find a new job.

I have had a few interviews. The selection is scarce. There are quite a few jobs in the line of work that I am already in; however, I can't fathom doing yet another accounting job. It was never the right fit for me, at the time I took this job because I needed the money. I got stuck here because of the flexibility.

Interviews are fun. Some of them anyway, some of them though, are from hell.
I met with a doctor this week, who was looking for an Executive Secretary. The job sounded rather nice, the pay was very nice, however, the guy gave me the creeps. First I had done some research on him and I didn't really like what I came up with. I'll just keep that to myself... and the doc shall not be named here in my blog.
Secondly I get there, and the guys appearance just does not look clean to me. He kept asking me why I was leaving my job, didn't believe me, my answer wasn't good enough. He kept saying something was fishy. He was really really rude. Then he asks me if I have kids and proper daycare. In the State of Maine it is illegal to ask any type of personal questions such as that. That can be considered discrimination. THEN he asks me if everything ok with my marriage!!
I said, now why would you ask me that. He replies "I just need to make sure nothing will interfer with your work."
At the end of the interview he offers me the job. He wants me to start right away and I can not. I haven't called him back yet. I wont take the job because he gives me the creeps, but I'm afraid I'll get desperate and take it for at least a short time.
Who knows, still keeping my fingers crossed for the job that I want!

Thoughts of a busy mom

Is what I should change my title too... yet what mom isn't busy.

Well what's been going on with me you ask?
One project, hubby is working on the bathroom. He took a week off from work and gutted it and we're starting fresh. We have a very very small bathroom. It couldn't get any smaller. We fit a stall shower (a little larger than the standard stall) a pedestal sink, and a toilet. Yep that's it. Yet it has taken an entire flippin week, and it's still not done. Seems as though there was issue after issue. We do have a toilet and a shower. He still needs to put a wall up and finish the tilling and then we can paint. It's been tourture on me. I can not stand to have stuff out of place in my house, and not only was my bathroom torn apart, but my kitchen became the make shift work shop, with pieces of pipes on the counter, drills, hammers, pliers, argh! And the dust could not get any worse. This whole week I've felt like my life has been in total chaos, and I've been feeling so bad for my poor dear hubby. This has been so much work, and stuff continues to go wrong. This leaks, or the hole drilled is to small, or there isn't enough room. Blah!

I'm in process of finding a new job. Yes it is finally time to cut ties with this place. Oh it's rather bittersweet to move one. There are a few good points to being here, like daily lunch with Lexi and Steve, and the flexibility that I get. But it is time to move on. I really wasn't cut out for this type of work, and it is not enough to keep my mind occupied. Just another boring number after another. Please keep your fingers crossed that my interview goes well tomorrow!

Finally, the mysterious tooth, I do believe has appeared! The tooth has broken through the skin, we just are waiting for it to sprout up over the gum line. My baby is growing. She was 8 months old last week, just a few short months and she'll be a whole year old. It makes me so sad, I will miss her baby stages, (well most of them!)

Well I guess I've either been busy, or I've had nothing to say. Or probably a little of both actually. Things have been quite busy. Last week the entire family was sick. I do believe it was caused by Rotavirus. The poor baby started it. Where she got it I have no clue. The only thing I can guess is from a changing table at the mall. I put a blanket down on the table, but I have no idea where else she would get it. The virus quickly made it's way throughout our entire household and has spread on to the in law's as well as the older kids. It was terrible, I think we all thought we were going to die for a period of 3 or 4 days. We all managed to lose some weight though. HA!
Lexi is doing pretty well. Now that she is feeling better she is eating like a darn pig. She loves food. Who can blame her right. I cut up chicken the other night and she ate that, she also has tried stuffing, which she loved, mashed potatoes, and avocado. She's is also quite pleased with oatmeal now.
Lexi enjoyed her first dip in her baby pool this weekend.

She was quite pleased with herself. When she was born I thought she would never ever like the water. She was terrified in the bath. Now not only does she enjoy her bath, but she likes to just hang out in her little pool splashing about and chewing on her toys.

I'm very happy that the summer season is here, although it is in fact raining this week. The weeks to come will be nice. We have our family vacation planned in July and I am looking forward to that. Hopefully Lexi, and the other kids too, will not give us a hard time.
