could this day go any slower

i have to give a shout-out to myself for sticking to the 40-minute jog as of late, not sure what has me so motivated but it doesn't seem to be as hard as it used to be... granted, i am not admitting that i actually ENJOY it but there is something to be said for being in a groove for 4-5 minutes... i missed spin class by ONE spot on saturday and i was there 5 minutes after the damn gym opened - these people are nuts, waiting in line outside, like their trying to get tickets to a concert... so i did the eliptical and then treadmill and headed back to eric's to clean and help around the yard... it was a BEAUtiful day so i was happy to be outside, mowing grass and pulling weeds... we opted out of going to see 'little miss sunshine' because it was $9.25/each and eric has a ton of movies that we had to watch... we chose 'syriana' and i have NO idea what it was about - okay then... perhaps 'constant gardener' or 'the davinci code' would've been better...

all i have is four words: HAIL TO THE REDSKINS... yeee haaa, what an AWESOME game... :o)

on friday afternoon, i received a response from a resume i submitted from a small museum/gallery... with my design and web exp. and gallery exp. from college, i thought it was an awesome fit so i applied on a whim... i was thrilled and happy all weekend until i spoke w/their HR person this morning... after chatting for a while, she asked me the range i was looking for and i told her... she said, "oh i'm afraid that's a lot more than we're offering"... i'm thinking, "this is for a manager position, how is MY range too low?" so i asked what they were offering and she told me... maybe i'm spoiled by working in the nonprofit but damn, i felt like telling them to delete the 'manager' part out of their listing because its very misleading... as much as i think it would be challenging and look great on my resume, i can't afford a paycut... if i was married and didn't need a salary to support myself, that would be different...

weight-wise, i'm feeling good and am hoping to see a loss on wednesday... i wrote everything down this weekend including the margaritas we had on saturday night... and the baquette, brie and black pepper salami we had for dinner... oh i love saturday nights at home... :o)

happy monday...

The thing that sucks is that the recruiter probably wishes she could give you more but has her hands tied by corportate BS and cost centers.

I agree - take the manager part out unless you want to pay manager salaries!
