Taking Care of Business – What Women Do!

Sick manAfter being on this earth for almost fifty-nine years….(Oh Lord I’m Old), it has come to my attention that the fairer sex (yes I’m talking about women), are much tougher than men.

I know, I’m slow to catch on to these things! I like to believe the best of everyone.

I’ve been ‘under the weather’ for a while (nothing contagious), but did it stop me getting up and going to work every day?

NO!

Did my home become a mess? NO!

Did the washing, cleaning, cooking and shopping still get done?

YES!

Did I still fix my face and dress immaculately for work every morning?

YES!

Did I moan and complain? (okay, maybe a little).

When a man is ill? No words needed. The image says it all.

No my husband isn’t ill, this is just and observation.

Another Day without a Dollar – Job Hunting!

I had another interview yesterday,  only my third face to face since I lost my job. I don’t think I’m quite as nervous as the first time, but it’s still difficult. How do you sell yourself without sounding arrogant? I’ll get used to it. They say third time’s a dream, lets hope so because I really liked the interviewer and know I would be an asset to his company. Now the waiting game.

My first two interviews were a practice run, now I’m job hunting for real. Anyone have any advice for me?

Interview

ALWAYS the Optomist!

Tomorrow will be better.

Do you feel like you say this to yourself on a daily basis? I do!

Does life seem to get more complicate as you get older? Mine does. Why is that?

 

When I moved to the US from England I planned on getting a little part-time job. Not sure what happened, but this cartoon pretty much hits the nail on the head.

As well as having a demanding full-time job, I have a home with three acres of land, I am a fiction writer and I manage my husband’s small business.

 

All this is fine as long as there are no hiccups. Last week there were lots of hiccups. My office moved to a new location, yes moving is always stressful.

 

 

 

I drove a different route to get to my new office EVERY DAY, in search of the shortest way. I did find it, but it meant paying to use the toll road…..AHHHHH!

 

 

 

The office movers broke my NEW computer.

My file server at home broke.

I found bat in my house (the brown furry type).

My patio door started leaking.

How do I handle the added stresses  – you got it! Picked myself up and shook myself down – and kept my wine glass full. (filled to the bloody brim)
