You all are too kind! Thanks so much for your supportive comments. Of course, just because the universe has a way of taking you down a peg every once in a while, on Sunday I received a rejection e-mail for a job I had applied to only on Friday. I think I dodged a bullet though. Would I really want to work for a woman who goes in on Sunday to her not for-profit-job so she can shoot off some rejection e-mails? I thought not.
On Saturday, I went stamping. It was an ambitious stamp-a-stack. Sorry, I don't have photos--it's too late to take them, and my rep deserves all the credit on those. I may have recruited a stamping stitcher to come to stitch night--it's this coming Friday. Will I see you there?
Yesterday the dude took one of his use-it-or-lose it holidays. (Clearly we need to take a proper vacation.) We put the dog in day care and went to the movies. We saw a double feature of True Grit and The King's Speech. He'll be off again in two weeks, and I think we might try this one more time. Of course, it will be harder to come up with an acceptable double feature. I'll want Gnomeo and Juliet and Hall Pass, and he'll want The Fighter (if it's still playing) and something where they speak with accents and think big thoughts. That's pretty much the dilemma of our relationship--I like the cultural equivalent of Starbursts and Skittles, and he prefers ethically traded dark chocolate (literally and figuratively). It's not that I can't appreciate dark chocolate theoretically, however, and thus our relationship survives our movie going, television watching, and book reading.
I've applied for another job (with luck I won't be rejected by Thursday) and networked for another. I ran the errands and walked the dog. Maybe I should sit and stitch since I haven't done that since last Friday at noon.
And thanks again for your comments. I really appreciate each and every one.
