Wacky Wednesday

So it's Wednesday.  The magical day where the weekend is glimpsing out from around the corner and there's hope that...yes...Friday will eventually make its weekly appearance.  And no, it's not all that wacky but it's not "wily" either, nor "wild" so y'all get "wacky."


Heard something fun on the radio this morning.  If you take the last 2 digits of the year you were born and add it to the age you are this year, it will always equal 11 or 111.  For instance, I was born in 1981 and I turned 30 in June, 81 + 30 = 111.  My youngest was born in 2007 and turning 4 in November, 7 + 4 = 11.  It works!  Kinda creepy but a fun way to kill some time this morning.


I had my second interview yesterday.  I feel so-so about it.  It was a little short.  It's been my experience that short interviews aren't good signs but they didn't really have that many questions either.  I was given a "homework assignment" during my phone interview on Friday and have forwarded that to the hiring manager this morning already so hopefully she'll be impressed with that.  She said to expect third interviews to take place with her boss in the next week or so.  I gotta think they're weeding people out throughout this process and they aren't just making everyone go through all these hoops.  So far I've had an HR screening, telephone interview, and an In person interview with the manager and one of her colleagues.  Not to mention, my "homework."  I do find it frustrating that people who have worked a heck of lot less and are a lot more incompetent are just handed these promotions here lately while I jump through hoop after hoop but I digress.  I really need out of my current role and the more I talk with the hiring manager for this job, the more I think I'd like it.  And, as promised, a picture...Please excuse the dirty bathroom and bad lighting.




Meanwhile, Hubby is gearing up for going out on his own at the beginning of the year.  He keeps flip flopping between whether this is a good idea or asinine for trying it in this economy.  I think it's a good idea but it's definitely a risk and you never know how these things will go.  But there's no time like the present and since it doesn't seem fate is going to step in with any good fortune any time soon, it's up to us to make good things happen!


Activity levels have definitely dipped this week.  It got hot here again which makes me lazy.  I don't want to be outside running around when it's 100 degrees out.  It's freakin' October!  It should NOT be in triple digits by now!  


So that's Wednesday.  And to leave on a positive note...a Hump Day Happy Thought.
