Stupid Scale....

....hasn't moved from the 155 mark for a while now. *sigh* of course, i've not been helping it along much, either... hehe. Why is it that it's so easy to gain the weight, but very very difficult to take it off?? And it seems that there are so many things that thwart all plans of "being good." i've managed to hit the gym two days in a row. Tonight will be three days. I think that I'm only taking Thursday off this week, if I can help it. Getting a gym membership and a scale could seriously turn me into a crazed lunatic. Shuddup, you. I know I've a very very short trip for that! *wink*

....the only other news of note today is that i found a chipmunk in my garage this morning. at first i thought it was a mouse, and thought "yep, finally caught the little bastard!" but upon further inspection discovered that it was one ugly mouse, or a chipmunk. we've kept the garage door open today.

....i played good Zookeeper this morning and had them watercolor paint. i've realized why i do not like watercolors, and that is because the kids always mix up the bloody colors, so that all of them are a shade of shit. positively nervous about the interview tomorrow. am hoping that this or some other job happens for me soon, as i easily lose confidence in myself. i can get through the interview, i imagine, but i'm afraid that people will be passing me up for people who have been in the industry for the last three years, and not playing Zookeeper. when these feelings of inadequacy and inferiority hit, it's very hard to present myself as capable of returning to the outside work-world at all.

I know that feeling well.

Imagining myself looking for a job in 2 years plus when Mackenzie goes to school.

I can picture myself getting testy when they are interviewing me.
YES I HAVE been working for the last 18 years thank you very much.
16 hour days, on call 24/7, no pay or second shift!

Sending you GOOD vibes for the interview tomorrow. Remember that just because you haven't been out in the work force outside your home doesn't mean you haven't been a serious business manager. Make a list of all the duties you are responsible for every day with regards to managing and bookkeeping and scheduling and researching etc. You'll get a big boost of confidence when you realize just how much you really do accomplish. You rock Steph :)

Aren't you afraid that leaving the garage door open would allow for more critters to come in? Rather than having the critter you already have leave?
Good luck tomorrow chickie :)
