Random thoughts

- working today... I really have been lazy for the last few days I've been off.

- interview tomorrow... I am really nervous. I want this position really really badly, it is a great opportunity to use the skills I have - leadership, training, organization (ha!), and my personal sense of accomplishment. I have learned that I like to see results. I don't like to be just a paper pusher. I *can* make people's work life better by what I do for them. Not to mention what a regular paycheck would do for our financials at home. Not that they're bad, but we like our toys. And doing things. What more can I say?

- school is almost over. Two weeks to go. I think the boys are really looking forward to time off, especially the B-man. He has had a much better school year, all things aside, than he has since preschool.

- less than 2 months till we go to Seattle. DH and I took J when he was only 8 months old. Boy, time flies by in the blink of an eye. We loved it there. We're actually even staying where we stayed 10 years ago. Odd, in a way. But, it has an outdoor pool, its reasonable, and we're really just looking forward to the time away. Six Flags is on the list, as well as the "Underground Tour", Pike Place market, the Supermall, and generally just hanging out and being us. Maybe find an SB store for me to get lost in for a couple hours too!

- I've learned that waiting is a hard thing. Especially if it is something that is a "bit" of a dream. Congrats to all the S! ladies that are now on the DT. I would be lying if I said I wasn't just a little bit jealous. But, I'll keep trying.

- I'm getting tired of rain. Its been a week since its been nice out, and at least 1 more day to go. Was awakened to a crazy thunderstorm in the middle of the night. Lots of lightning, and huge thunderbooms that shook the house. Still not nice out this morning, very overcast and still drizzly out.

- I've had a headache for 4 days now. I think its the weather.

'Tis all for today....
