depressing week in which not much has been accomplished, at home or at work.
I didn't make the Wed. appt with the agency - I rescheduled it for Monday. I've felt like hell all week and just didn't have the energy to be "on" for an interview. The lawyer at the other firm - where I had such a good interview - wants to do lunch with Boss. Otherwise, not much action on the job search front - my fault entirely, I'm just dragging ass this week.
Meanwhile, my real boss was in town yesterday and we did lunch. Nothing much was accomplished - I basically told him how I felt about the job and why I was so frustrated, and he said he had some ideas to make it better, and that's nice, it was a good air-clearing session, but it doesn't change anything substantive. He is a really good-hearted guy and he really did listen once we had him cornered, but I'm just not happy with this as a long-term career prospect.
Still more meanwhile, it's April 1 and the Girlchild and I have made an informal pact - April has been designated as Extreme Fitness Month. For me this means daily gym workouts and banning all junk food and alcohol, (no wings and beer with the girls - sob) meditating, taking my vitamins faithfully, and getting 8 hours of sleep every night. I have been very tired and headachy all week, I know it's stress and frustration, and I need to make positive changes to balance it. I have a lot of things I want to start/finish/achieve this month. This may include less blog time - too soon to tell. I may start a parallel blog on Typepad to try, just for giggles.
My strange, sick little hat addiction continues - I finished the blue and green hat and promptly went to the box of felting leftovers and cast on a bright red hat. Same pattern, same basic 4x4 ribbed cap - this is definitely knitting as therapy, it just goes round and round, the gerbil running frantically on the treadmill in my brain slows down and relaxes as my fingers move. I need to start a baby blanket this weekend - maybe this evening - my young friend is due to pop out her baby boy any day now.
Okay, this was also fairly incoherent and not very interesting - there will be pictures and such this weekend.
Daylight Savings Time starts Sunday! Yaaaay!
