Back to blogging after a week focused on other things.
Let’s see….what’s happened this week?
Well, I’m still glued to the news out of Japan. I feel the need to mention again how disappointed I am to see that the “major’ bloggers are completely silent on the difficulties faced by the Japanese people. Perhaps they feel compelled to continue with “business as usual” to earn their sponsorships.
I pray that the international nuclear community can assist with these challenges – I understand that experts from around the world are now in Japan to participate in finding solutions.
On to things closer to home….
I think spring has finally come to Ottawa! The snow in my yard is mostly gone and the sun is getting warmer.Notice that I have much less snow in my yard than my neighbours do? It must be because I wish and pray harder for spring!It’s almost time to take away the red snowplow markers – a sure sign of spring. 🙂 I have an enormous pot hole at the bottom of my driveway that will need fixing soon. See it?
This week has been a “heads-down” week. It was time to put some serious effort into a job search. I posted my resume on the internet job boards.I also circulated my brilliant work of art to various friends, including one who is expanding his business as a career coach. His words to me – “This is the best resume I’ve ever seen”! That definitely gives me some confidence.
I’ve already received a call from an executive search firm with a focus in finance . I am going to meet with an agent early next week. Progress!! I need the interview experience.
I spent my work week leading a project that absorbed all my mental energy and time. My firm must file a legal brief in court on Monday. The Boss is at Disneyworld with his granddaughter. Who do you think wrote a large portion? Why, that would be me, of course! It’s stressful because I know so little about this subject and the legal process.
This is the reason I need a new job: the Boss is at Disneyworld and I’m working on legal briefs! Seriously, I’m a numbers girl! I don’t get paid enough to do this!
OK, that’s my rant for the morning.
It’s a beautiful Saturday morning and I’m drinking coffee, deciding what kind of fun I can have today. I’m going to get outside for a long walk, and perhaps do a yoga class later. Yes, the shoulder is improving, thanks!
