I have returned to the land of the living . . .

and I'm up to my eyeballs in dirty laundry! I can't believe it. I was was only sick for a couple of days, and I'm totally behind on everything! The worst part about being sick isn't actually being sick, it's playing catch up on all the things you allowed to slide while you felt like poo. Sort of makes me wonder why I bothered to get well in the first place.

I must have looked as crappy as I felt when I went to see the doctor yesterday, because he gave me some kick ass antibiotics. Yesterday was rough, but I woke up this morning feeling so much better. Still a little tired and wrung out, but no more pain.

At least not until I turned on the bathroom light. Not only was the laundry hamper spewing it's stinky contents every where, but I've seen port-a-potties cleaner than mine. Since it was only 7AM, I seriously considered going back to bed and faking sick before anyone saw me up and about; But then I remembered that I had a job interview at 12:30PM. Damn !

I spite of my best efforts, I didn't get around to cleaning the bathroom today. (the carpet, the kitchen sink, and the rest of the house was equally as in need) But the interview went well. I could really see myself working there - I think I'd like it a lot. Of course, there have been a lot of changes in the optical field since I last worked, but the people in this office seem very nice and relaxed, and I really felt comfortable talking with them. They aren't so busy that learning would be difficult. I still have two more interviews scheduled for next week, but so far, I like this office the best. And it's only 9 miles from home ! I'm just praying that I will hear back from them.

Well, it's late. I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm still alive. The kids have plans for the weekend, so I'm hoping to get my house back in order, and maybe get some more prop work done for the haunt before the weekend is over. It's been snowing all day here, that usually helps me to get into the nesting mood. We'll see how that works out . . . .

Good night all

YAY- on 2 accounts for you!

1) wonderful to learn you've survived and conquered this horrid illness that plagued you.

2) Great to hear the interview went well and they passed your interview standards!

Take care and best of luck all the way around.... and just let the bathroom go till you feel like dealing with it.
