Great day!

Today went pretty darn well. My interview went well, and it's me and just one other candidate. So that's promising. It will be several weeks still, but I'm hopeful.

Also in good news, I got to work this morning and checked my phone, to find an email from our property manager. Apparently the renter likes our place so much (and it is conveniently located and tastefully appointed) that she is interested in buying it. This is excellent news. As long as the numbers pan out, that would be most helpful.

And then I got an email this afternoon from Holland America, informing me of the amount of the reimbursement they're sending for my lost glasses. My glasses should be done the end of this week or early next week. Between the Groupon, the kindness of the shop owner, and the reimbursement, they will ultimately have cost us $32. This is especially impressive, since I'm so nearsighted that my power of lenses aren't kept in-stock and have to be the superduper expensive thin ones. Last time I got just the lenses replaced, it was $180. I don't like these frames as much as my old ones, but it's still not a bad deal.

It was just one good thing after another today. A nice change of pace.

WiR IV (late)

You know why this edition of Week in Review is so late? Because ALL of my free time has gone to this. FH has partnered up with a local teen to build said teen's DJ business. And I have been roped in to doing all the non-DJing work, like building the website and being the voice of reason and managing the finances. There may have been a couple scenes, plus one meltdown. I'm just too tired to want to take on a part time job, especially one I'm not getting paid for!

Anyway, lots going on, but I have to post this so I can go wash my hair so I can go to bed so I can get up early and do my hair so I can ace my interview tomorrow and get a new job where people don't eat garlic bread or raw onions at their desk and pay me more than what I was making  when I was still in college.

So yeah. More to come.
