Where have I been?

Well, a lot and a little has been going on! Job status is still in limbo....Scott is officially in Arkansas....home life is boring!!

Scott has not officially moved yet, his company is packing and moving him but they haven't settled on a date. Hopefully it will be soon, I can't imagine having a duplex with nothing, I mean NOT A THING, in it! I feel bad for him, but am selfishly glad that he hasn't moved yet, that way we get to spend this weekend in Tulsa!

Home life....holy cow, I'm bored and have been completely lazy. I think it is because I am probably somewhat depressed. Which, is understandable, I guess....so after this week, I have house projects that are GOING to get done!!

At my conference last week, I was reacquainted with several people and who all were sympathetic to my job situation. If I want to continue down the career path I'm on, I don't think I will have any problems if I am willing to relocate. That's the bad thing. I don't really want to relocate!!! GRR!!!!!

Who knows, I have so many things up in the air, I need one to fall so I can then make other decisions......

My Google List....

Ok, here we go:

Suddenly Carrie needs more than deep-breathing exercises. ...

All Carrie needs is a decent haircut and the sanction of top jock Tommy. ...

naturally, what Carrie needs after a night like this is a nice, hot bath.She slowly, ritualistically climbs into the bath and scrubs herself madly like an ...

(OK, these first 3, in order, sound very similar to a "movie" I once saw...)

"The bottom line is that Michelle is quite barmy and needs Carrie and Barry's stability more than Carrie needs her. "That said, she is great and she and ...

But, to take it to the next level, Carrie needs everything. ... On another note,I totally agree about carrie's need for polish. ...

(Oh my gosh!! How in the h-e-double hockey sticks does the Internet know that I need to re-polish my nails?? )

Carrie needs to use her emotions as an asset.

Carrie needs to get a quicky divorce and a have a big white wedding or a long engagement. "How are people supposed to be open minded if they MUST agree with ...

(What?!?!?! What must I agree to?? Instead of a divorice or long engagement, how about a long dating experience, followed by an even longer happy ever after??)



After these "Carrie Needs" it went into what Carrie Underwood or Carrie from Sex and the City needs, more than what I actually need! What I need now, is to take another shower to further try to scrub the red of the back of my neck. We went to the Nascar race in Texas this weekend and I haven't completely recovered yet.

Y'all come back now, ya hear?

My Own Version of Office Space

So today, I had my meeting with "The Bob's", well, actually Roy, but maybe you can follow my rambling.

Met with Roy, who works with the company that bought mine. We were supposed to have a casual conversation about work, what is going to happen during our transition period, etc., etc. One of the questions he asked was "what do you think about the merger?"

Well, Roy, I think the merger sucks! Not only that, but it royally sucks. I liked my job, I liked the people I worked with, I liked getting to have 3 weeks vacation starting in January, I loved working in IT and getting paid overtime, and I most definitely loved having Friday afternoons off!

His first question was "so, what do you do here? How do you spend your day?"

Uh, I thought this was supposed to be a "conversational, informal meeting?"

Today sucked.

Trapped

Boss is gone.

Director is gone.

Helpdesk people are gone.

IT Specialist is gone.

Everyone has left and I am stuck here. I feel very trapped!! I can't deal with everyone by myself. It is suddenly turned into the "Afternoon of the Living D.e.a.d-c.u.".

Bridges

Due to the recent events at my job, I've started to realize that it does pay off to be nice, or at least try to be nice to everyone. I've had 2 people I used to work with recommend me to their IT staff. What is most interesting about this is, I don't feel that I did anything spectacular to or for these individuals.

Target Receipt

Ha! I went to Target yesterday, here is what I bought. Be aware, these were just items that were needed, not absolutely-have-to-have right now!

Downy
Headband
Pantene
Almond Joy
Kit Kat
Resse PBC
Summers Eve
Tampax 20 ct

I entered a line that had a guy working. He kept smiling to himself and I couldn't figure out why. Then, once I read the receipt and actually LOOKED at what I was buying, I got it!!

Recruiters

It is very reassuring to know that people want to see my resume. It is not very reassuring to know that these recruiters are mad because I don't have a current resume.

To recruiters: "hello, I liked the job I have (at least until January). Why would it be updated when I really don't want to go anywhere else?"

I would try to be more witty, but I'm tired! Stress makes me sleepy. Top it off by 4 days of drinking and staying out late. But I am having a ton of fun with my coworkers, sadly though, we all have the best intentions of staying in touch even though we probably won't.

I'm not good at staying in touch with people I really like.....let alone people that I somewhat like!
