Why didn't you call me? You know I would have come right over to do it for you. Then you would have more time to play with your new Wii toy.

Update on Himself's job interview Thursday: went well. When they were discussing aspects of the office they kept saying "this is where you'll sit" and "you can use this room for ____". Then they finished a rather long (over an hour) interview with "we still have to talk to a few other people, but we'll be getting back to you next week". So what does THAT all mean?

It means if you are a prayin' sort of person I'd appreciate it if you'd lift one or two for Himself. If you aren't, a good thought to space works for me too (since he WAS an astronomy major in college for three years ). I'll be praying and crossing my fingers and stroking my very old lucky rabbit's foot...and still brace myself for "we've decided to go in another direction". You know, just in case.

Here's hoping with all I have. If those folks are smart, he will have a job. Here's one for him. One for the person who makes the hiring decision. One for you. One can never have too many angels looking out for ones self.

HEY goddess, sounds real promising! my best thoughts are all lined up and headed for an auspicious space mission on behalf of himself. though it doesn't seem he really needs much help reeling in this j-o-b. btw goddess, is himself aware of just how desperate you are to get him out of the house?

Thanks Addie, taxy, and vit! Even though we might have been as ready as we'd ever be financially for his lay-off, neither of us was ready emotionally. Being together for 24/7 for a week or two on vacation is fun, but this Every Stinkin' Day business came up a bit sooner than we though!

vit, I tell him every day! Trust me, the feeling is a little mutual. Like I said in a Thursday post, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder...he needs to go away for a few hours every day! I mean, how can I miss him if he's always here!

Well, back to it...

Holy crap, PF! I hadn't heard about this on the news. What is the status now? Any better?

uh-oh. i just had one of those epiphanies, i think--only it's one of the bad kind, right? after himself has gone back to work, goddess is planning for another hiatus from dc. have you been using us all summer to avoid all that togetherness with himself, goddess?
