Early morning musings...

Hello bloggies! Ok, I feel a little better today, than yesterday.  I just posted a regurgitated post and was going to leave it at that.  But then, I changed my mind. Yeah, I do that ALL.THE.TIME.  Thanks for every one's words of encouragement and advice.  YOU ARE ALL THE BEST!

So, yesterday (Monday) I bombarded all my business contacts with my resume and made my "cold calls" to various law firms throughout the city.  I'm also still waiting to hear back from the interviews that I went on last week.  We can only hope -and pray.  Which I've been doing more of lately.  Well, more than usual, for me.

Besides not receiving a paycheck twice a month, the other thing I hate about being unemployed is that my routine is interrupted and my sleep schedule, well, let's just say, it's non-existent right now.  I'm keeping up with the workouts though.  I have a "boot camp" to prep for.  That's my one constant in my life that I will not compromise.  And for that, I am grateful.

Let's see, what else can I amuse you with?  Oh yes, you know I'm getting old senile older when you turn on the tv and it says "90210" and I got all "giddy" because I thought I was going to see Brandon, Dylan and Brenda at the Peach Pit,  but instead some really young looking kids that I could less about and had no clue who they were, came on the screen. Yes, I completely forgot that there is a new 90210! So my giddiness deflated like a balloon and I changed the channel in disgust.

Let's move on.

I met the Musketeers for brunch yesterday.  It had been a while since we got together.  We met at a GREAT little place in mid-town.  The bottomless mimosas were delish as was the food.  And yes, I know I messed up my calorie counting in that one sitting, but I've been good.  So I gave myself a pass.  "Fun-day Sunday" or "Therapy Sunday", whatever you want to call it, girl-talk is always fun and necessary, don't you agree?  I *heart* those girls!

And last but not least, the Astros kicked ass tonight (er, last night) and WON! What? It's been a rough season and we're not even at the All-star break yet.  Let me have this little bit of happy.

Eh, that's enough for today or tonight, depending what part of the world you're in.

Hope your Tuesday is off to a good start.  It's about 12:45 a.m. here, and I'm wide awake.

What are you doing?



Oh no hope your job search goes well. I too noticed that the first thing that goes when not working is the routine. Stay positive, just not H.I.V positive.

I think it's funny that you mention feeling better, and then use 'regurgitated' in the same sentence...

I am reading this on Wednesday afternoon and a cold afternoon it is I would like to put the heater on but know that hubby would get annoyed and complain about the cost of running it.

Hope things improve on the job front sooner rather then later.
