I am in the process of finding a new job. My dearest boss Bill has decided to retire and close down his business, or sell it if he can. I would love to take him with me, he was a darling to work for! On the other hand, I will be able to finally work more hours. I only worked 8 hours per week for him, and tried for a long time to supplement that with a second job, because I get very attached to my work, and have a hard time leaving a job. Today I had a job interview with a small company, the interview was led by two brothers, who were seriously lacking a sense of humor, and didn't smile much. The office was tiny, and hushed.... as if everyone was a bit afraid to move. Halfway through the interview I decided to feel them out, and I started making a few jokes, and eventually ended up asking THEM a bunch of questions. I also asked to see the office I would be working in if they decided to hire me. It is a tiny office with telephone wires hanging out of the wall, and no window. I would be the closet accountant, hahah. I had a good time, I think they won't call me though, because I might be just a bit too alive for them. If they still want me, I will probably know by tomorrow.
Afterwards I met my husband for lunch at the Cheesecake factory, and I ordered a nice pasta dish with vegetables and no butter and cheese. So they dumped oil all over the veggies, haha. It was good, though.
Anyway,I spend about 10 hours this weekend shopping for a business professional suit, and I was delighted to find that my size 12's are pretty loose on me, some stores I could wear a 10 easily. I came home, put on what I had bought and my husband almost dropped dead. He was so full of compliments about my nice shape and professional look (he knows me in jeans and t-shirt, I am not much for dressing up). I thank Spark People for the wonderful insightful site, and although I am losing slowly, my life has been changed forever. I never worked out so much in my life, and I feel great!
