The Sky Came Crashing Down

Monday, July 05, 2010

Man, oh man, it's hot in here.

And my boss is coming over tomorrow to work, after his, er, day job. We'll probably stay in this room, the computer room, as it has an air conditioner in the window. No other windows have a/c in them, at least not right now.

It is a hot and dusty business to put the a/c unit in so I don't blame Mr. J for not doing more than one. That's fine. So far, we've been able to sleep at night. So, no worries. I do, though, wonder how the three of us will have dinner tomorrow night if we end up staying in here. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. It's not like da boss's apartment is going to be significantly cooler.

Oof. I am usually cold, so if even I am hot, it means it's pretty bad. It's 91 according to Weather Bug.

So -- there is more to tell. I am being courted by a company which does Community Management as their main focus.

What? You ask. Don't you already have a job, jes?

Why yes, yes I do. And I am happy with it.

But it is a startup.

Hence if I want to make any $$ -- at least for a while -- I need to cultivate my own day job. My pals do want to hire me (yay!) but the timing is off. It'll get there. It's just not there quite yet.

Hence I need to continue looking.

Plus I need to continue looking in order to satisfying the Commonwealth, which is still graciously paying me Unemployment.

I need to call them tomorrow and assure them that, yes, I am actually still unemployed (or rather underemployed). I am nervous about this, don't want to upset the delicate balance.

Oof, not fun, and the heat is making me feel bad which is making everything else loom larger. I recognize that it is going to be okay but, eh, I do not enjoy dealing with bureaucracy.

This is also why I want to stay with my pals. There is no bureaucracy. Or, rather, I suppose, we are it. So we can make it anything we want, as small or as large as necessary. Small, very small. That'll work for me.

In the meantime, workouts are still somewhat sparse but they are happening. Every morning is weight training and resistance bands, the question is whether anything else happens. Sometimes things don't happen because I have events and whatnot and it's too much of a rigamarole to shower and get all dolled up again afterwards. This is one major goal for July, to go to fewer events and focus them far better. Right now, aside from meeting the gal with the Community Management company, I am looking at 8 events plus a hair appointment and a 5K this month. I may sign up for one or two more events but that'll do me, I think.

Long as there's air conditioning.

    It looks like it's going to be even hotter today, I hate to say. Stay in the air-conditioned office I guess.....or go out to the movies or even the mall.

    Glad you're being courted! It must be hard to continue to look while you have this opportunity that interests you so much, but you obviously have to. Good luck with it. I hope this heat wave ends soon.

    It's even hot here in the woods today. Can't imagine functioning in the city! I suggest a trip north. ; )
