So you've got kids and/or a boss huh? Seriously, I hope all is going well for you, no matter what this external cause is.

Thanks everyone for your warm thoughts. Having been thru so many tests and diagnoses, pessamistic doctors, etc, I just take it as it comes and try to just be objective. Mum is a bit the same so just another day but she is stressing out a bit just thru the waiting between tests. We first heard that something was amiss in her lungs on Aug 15 and a month later we still don't know if they can operate or not. And even then, if they can do it, we still have to wait while we get a surgeon! My brother and his wife flew out to Italy tonight for a fortnight, which has been arranged for over a year, with my mother's blessing cos there was just so little likelihood of anything being resolved before he returned! See what tomorrow brings I guess.

Stacy: Good luck on the job front. Hope something goes right for you!

Suzi: I feel your fear!!!!

Babe: Good for you!!
(going to post in Celebrations now if anyone wants to check that out.)

Ah Kadesma ... I'm probably just really good at detatching myself from my emotions - I get to ignore it all... or it might just be that stiff British upper lip coming out in me!! And don't worry, I have my major panic/worry/terror sessions. Just don't give them air too often as it doesn't get me anywhere, esp as I live alone - nobody to cheer you up!

Thanks for your sweet thoughts.

An interview PANEL!! Why do companies do this? I feel STUPID. I'm sure I won't get that job!! They had a list of questions and THEN, tossed me a paper clip, said, take a minute and then sell that to me. WHAT??? oh lord, if I don't get this job, after that, I don't know why I'm being punished.

Good luck!1

I hate one-on-one interviews, but I especially hate panel interviews.

Stacy, if you don't get the job, it wasn't the one for you. But you gained interview experience either way.

We're still praying that you find the perfect job, and that you will receive the appreciation there that you deserve.

No, not a sales job. It's for the City utitilies company in the internet and cable dept. It was basically to see if I can tell someone why they want something, like the cable or internet. I can no longer wait for the perfect job, since Saturday is my last day. He's running me off and now it sounds like he's running the manager off too. He's being really mean to everyone and we don't understand why.

Dumb, dumb, dumb! Me that is!

I put my last load of clothes in to wash a while ago, then came back to our room. I was hanging some of the clothes I had just dried, when I realized I was still wearing a shirt I especially wanted to wear in the next couple days. I changed into another shirt really quickly and hurried to the laundry room. It had just finished spinning out the wash water and was getting ready to fill for the first rinse. I didn't have any more clothes to wash (except James's jeans, which I didn't see before I left), and I hadn't worn it that long, so I went ahead and threw it into the washer. I figured it would get a little detergent on it as the washer filled, and since it wasn't really dirty, it wouldn't hurt.
