So, I'm actually kind of enjoying this unemployment stuff. Well, except for the no income part. lol But I've had some time to do things for just me and that part has been great. In another life, I would be a billionaire heiress who never has to work for the money. Ahhhh, it's good to daydream, and would somebody please pass me that winning lottery ticket!
Out of dreamland … I've cut out the crossover version of this See & Sew dress and hope to get it mostly or completely sewn before I hit the hay tonight. I'm using the second knit I bought at Joann's last week because I'm thinking it will go well with a RTW jacket I already have. When I get the dress done, I will probably be soliciting opinions on the pairing because I'm still not quite sure.
Speaking of jackets, I have two interviews scheduled for next week, with the possibility of a third. So far, so good. In my previous life mumblemumbletwentysomething years ago, I was a legal secretary at some of the big law firms in Washington, D.C. That's the field I'm hoping to return to now and those big D.C. names on the resume, no matter how old, should help. As will a recent reference letter from one of the partners I used to work for.
I'm one of those weird people who actually like lawyers and at one point before I got married, I thought I would be one … but life turned out differently. Understanding legalese has always come naturally for me and my office skills are still top-notch so I'm hoping I can slip back in without too much searching. Plus, the pay and benefits at law firms is always better than at other places. I also started looking into getting my paralegal certificate and I think that will be something I'll do in the near future. Phyllis - feel free to weigh in on this. ;-)
I lied when I said my dental visits were over for now. Or, actually, they lied to me. Well, not really — they are just being thorough, which is welcome. This is a new-to-me dental practice and they have been awesome. Very kind and caring. And his London accent and good looks don't hurt either. ;-) I have another follow-up next week, and then that should be it for a little while. I still have more stuff I need done, but for now I have a pretty smile again and a workable care/money plan.
Things seem to be moving along, and I feel pretty good. Always a good thing, right?
Thank you again for all of the love and support. It helps more than you'll know!
