Where I have been


Well Saturday was Hannah's 12th birthday.. Hard to believe that my baby is 12! I mean really... I remember having her!! They say you forget... BUT you don't...
Anyway.. She had 2 of her friends spend the night on Friday.. They did a "spa" thing.. you know.. paint your nails.. run around and scream at the top of your lungs.. the normal.. Anyway.. I was emailing Michelle about cakes, because her daughter Taylor's b'day is March 1st.. and she sent me a link for a cake.. well.. I can't say that mine turned out as well.. but Hannah was happy with it.. And it tasted yummy.. and it's gone.. so that is a good sign...



And for some reason, no matter what.. when ever she has friends spend the night.. she wants pancakes for breakfast.. and since Saturday was her birthday.. I HAD to put a candle in hers!!

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I have an interview at the University of Minnesota. They are opening a BRAND SPANKING NEW clinic. Wish me all the luck.. because to tell you the truth, I am scared to death!!
My work situation isn't good. The dentist I work for is going broke! He is a terrible money manager.. and well.. he has champagne taste on a WATER budget! (not even beer budget..) So both the assistant and I are looking for new jobs.. because we really don't know how long we will have one where we are at. I guess we are just like millions of others out there.
So anyway... I didn't have any interview clothes.. I know hard to believe... I mean can't think why I would have ANY thing other than scrubs.. so we went to JCPenny's and Hannah found this wonderful Jones Wear Suit that was regularly $200 on sale for GET THIS... $29.97!!! AND it fit.. so I am hemming the pants tonight.. because as most of you know.. I am a bit on the petite side.. but with heals and 1 hem up.. I am set to go...

And the whole Stampin' Up thing?? well.. not sure.. but I am thinking of letting myself go into pending and just dropping.. I can order from my friends.. with the economy and all of that.. I just don't know if it is worth it any more...

Well leave me a message.. let me know you are out there!!

Oh my gosh! The cake is fabulous! You did an awesome job Shawn - I love it!

Good luck tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you - you will rock this interview - just be confidant & all will go well.

If SU isn't going good for you & you don't have customer making your minimums than I say go into pending & drop - no biggie really.

What, they don't make interview scrubs? You knew, a nice neutral color, bit of splash, looks good with pearls, that sort of thing. Since you dress to show your professionalism, I'd be fine with that.

Good luck...this is not the time to be out of work, so I hope that you make the jump smoothly!
