The rules for the tag are to go to your first picture folder and post your tenth photo. I only have one folder which is filled with awards I've been given and pictures that I use for Wordless Wednesday's. I've added and deleted pictures since doing the first photo tag but the tenth picture is still the same. So...I went to my folder, scrolled all the way to the bottom and counted to ten starting with the last picture first. For your viewing pleasure, I present to you:
The amazing Skeletor! Wesley was standing on his front porch one day when this pit bull walked up to him. He's been nursing Skelly back to health ever since. Fortunately, he looks much, much, much better today! You'd never know he's the same dog!
I'm supposed to tag 5 friends. After thinking about it for awhile and realizing probably everyone has already done this already, I've decided that if you want to do this, feel free to do so! I don't know who else to tag!
I have limited computer skills, for anyone who might have guessed differently. What, no one did? Yeah, yeah! So I have a question for those more skilled than I am. I'm following someone that I no longer want to follow. How do I delete this person's blog from the list? I did it once before a really long time ago and I can't figure out how to do it again. I don't normally unfollow blogs but this is one that I just don't read anymore and don't have much interest in. If I comment on your blog regularly, then I'm not gonna unfollow you. Not that anyone was worried about that!
My interview on Friday was probably the easiest interview ever! I interviewed with one lady first and then another lady. There were a couple of things that could have gone better. The job is in another town and I wasn't familiar with the area so I printed off directions I got from google and they were wrong. Actually, they were mostly correct but they had me turning the wrong way down a one way street. The directions said the building was on the right side. Since I was one the wrong side of the street (and didn't immediately realize it), I was looking on the wrong side wondering why I couldn't find it. Thank goodness I quickly realized that I was going the wrong way and parked on a side street. It didn't immediately sink in that I was looking on the wrong side for the building. I saw someone walking and stopped him to ask for directions. Randomly, it turns out it was someone I worked with at a job from a really long time ago! As I said on Friday, I don't know that he remembered me or not but he was very nice! It took a minute before I recognized him as he looks a little different now with a beard. It finally occured to me to go look on the other side of the street and there the building was. I don't know for certain but I was probably a few minutes late with all the confusion. I HATE to be late!!! Especially when making a first impression because you never get to make another one. And it is SO important when you're interviewing for a job!
Then I called the company by the wrong name. Ugh!!! Fortunately, the lady laughed and says she has to be careful when she answers the phone sometimes because she's been known to give the wrong name too! The company name is Fitzpatrick, I called it Fitzgerald. I'm sure that didn't win me any points!
They said I'd hear back today or tomorrow. Haven't heard anything back today so maybe tomorrow.
That same afternoon, I attended my job assistance meeting. I honestly don't feel like they've done a single thing to help me but it's free and gets me out of the house so I go. They were going to send me to some other agency to work on mock interviewing. Well, I don't know what's up with that other agency but they haven't gotten around to doing them yet so my caseworker is working on creating her own program. That's excellent news because the agency was in another town and while I have a car, it's a 45 minute drive each way. Having something locally would save me time and gas which is a win-win situation all the way around!
I was done with all my running around after that and came home. I saw my neighbor in the driveway (we share a driveway) and went over to say hello. He has been out of a job for 15 months now. Yikes! My neighbor is generally a pretty nice guy but I didn't leave with my self-esteem intact when our conversation was done. He told me I looked like I was 43 and that I could stand to lose 25 to 30 pounds. Um, I'm not 43, I'm actually younger. I don't think I look 16 anymore but seriously, I didn't think I looked 43 either! Most people think I'm in my mid to late 20's. So I apparently look old and fat! Just kind of ruined my day.
This weekend was filled with housework. I let my puppies out for awhile and continued my work on Saturday afternoon. Typically, I let the dogs out and Shiver scratches on the door every two minutes. As soon as I open the door, he runs off again. I think he just wants to know I'm still there even though he can't see me. He did this a few times but then a long while had passed and it occured to me that he hadn't scratched for a long time. I went outside and discovered my babies were missing! What a truly awful feeling! I ran back in the house and grabbed the leashes, ran back outside and went looking for them. Didn't take long, thank goodness! I found them in someone else's yard sniffing around. Fortunately, they both ran right over to me and let me put their leashes on. I promptly walked them home.
So that's all the (non-) excitement here at the moment!
