I am really enjoying not having schoolwork to take up my time on the weekends.  Very fun and productive weekend!!

Friday I had a job interview...I am bummed because during the course of the interview "Janet" mentioned that while reading my application she realized that the salary I wanted was not the salary the job pays...it would have been a lateral move.  I thanked her for her time and moved on.  I would have really liked to work there, but not for the same pay.  No job is likely to have the amount of vacation time that I now get, but I should be able to find something with better pay!!  I'm going to have to look in the City I think...Chicago that is.

This weekend I bought a new book (Fri eve), read it in it's entirety (It's been a LONG time since I've read an entire  book in a day or so).  I also managed to go to the movies not once but TWICE!!!  

Saturday - amid all of the reading and things we did, Deb, Jen, Eric and I went to church.  This will have a post of it's own shortly.

We saw Julie & Julia yesterday, which I adored - people actually clapped at the conclusion...it also happens to be the book I read this weekend.  Last night I cleaned our bedroom and bathroom - jacuzzi tub, shower, sinks, floor etc...it's a big bathroom...and cleaned our bedroom and did all of the laundry.  It's been quite a while since every piece of laundry was washed and PUT AWAY.  I always get it washed but the last load always ends up in the basket in our room...I call it the "remote storage" when Joe asks where something is that happens to be in that basket. 

Today, finished the book, went to see The Proposal for the second time...SO very funny!!!  I can't wait for it to come out on DVD in October!!  Our neighbor made us dinner, she is so very sweet and made big trays of lasagna for 3 neighbors.  Mexican Lasagna...so we ate and sent Jen on her way...oh, did I mention, she was home for the weekend?  Joe went fishing with his friend and his brother in Minnesota so it was just us girls.  She did spend some time with Eric, but we got her a lot too!!  :)

Now, off to start a new book.  It is so great to be able to read for pleasure and not work!!

I haven't been around FB for about 2 weeks, so maybe you said something there. But...

What's going on with looking for a new job? Too much stress at SO?
