I'm ending today both extremely happy ... and a teeny bit disappointed in myself.
First off ... I got the call! Tomorrow at 1:30 is my face-to-face interview! I filled out the documents they sent me and ran to Mom's to print them off . Other than picking out some clothes, taking a shower, and getting a good night's rest ... I'm ready to go.
So why be disappointed? I didn't go for that walk today. I could come up with some fabulous excuses ... I was taking care of the interview documents (which I was) ... or I was making Scotcharoos (which I did) ... but the truth is that it was just too hot and humid outside.
After I left Mom's, I planned on going to the park before I hit the grocery store ... but I was sweating just walking across her parking lot. Which ... I know ... is part of the reason I should be out walking. But I don't like being hot. I hate it. It makes me irritable. I don't like being irritable. I like being happy. Know what makes me happy? Air conditioning. I can't help it. I'm just an enigma ... wrapped inside a mystery ... wrapped inside a taco. A cool, air-conditioned taco of comfort.
Heat aversion issues aside, I had a great evening. Stoney came over ... and I traded him a couple batches of Scotcharoos for a nice dinner out. True, his office buddies will have snacks tomorrow ... but dinner out? I still think I got the better end of the deal!
So tomorrow is the big day. I've had my shower. I'm in my comfy pajamas. I promise I won't stay up until one a.m. like last night. I've made a short to-do list for tomorrow. At this point, all I can do is keep my fingers crossed!
Another day older and deeper in debt
