I just got home...took the day off so I wasn't going in to work mysteriously dressed up and then leaving halfway through for 2 hours. She said I can wear jeans to the next interview. Woo!

She said that she couldn't NOT bring me in after the note I wrote her. I seriously am so surprised and happy that I did it. I got the rejection two weeks ago and on Wednesday when I saw the job was still posted I felt compelled to make a better case for myself. She said she was really glad I did and wants me to meet more people, and she liked my ideas.

Even if it doesn't work out I really feel like I accomplished something.

After the interview I stopped at Chelsea Market and bought some fun kitchen stuff, some cookies for the kids, and a lobster roll for lunch. So good.

I bought jewelry yesterday. My plan was to find new running shoes, but I found jewelry instead Smile I love my silver (Silpada, Lia Sophia, etc), but I saw this three strand gold necklace with gorgeous turquoise, amber and gold beads and jewels I just HAD to have it. It's not real gold, btw, just costume. Then I found a set of bangles to match, and then some cute gold hoops. Smile And what I love more than that is when I got to the cash it was all 50% off. SmileSmileSmile I love those perfect moments in life. Serendipitous.

That is neat that you do not need glasses.

Being a preemie only makes you need glasses I believe if you were on Oxygen for a long period of time. It is not being born early that affects the eyes, but rather the life saving treatment. It is normally the babies that were born very, very early that have problems with their eyes.

That's not true. Simply being premature sets up a baby for a lot of eye problems whether they needed oxygen or not. That's because ocular development continues right up until birth, with a significant growth spurt occuring after 37 weeks gestational age.

I'm proud of my big shoe size.

Oh, come on, an 8.5 isn't big at all. Grow another 2.5 sizes and then we'll talk. Yes, I wear an 11. I was merely a 10 but each kid gave me half a size more! I was actually kind of glad that they went up to an 11 because it's nearly impossible to find 10.5 unless you're willing to pay Nordstrom prices.

Also why do people wear shoes without socks to the airport when they know they have to take the shoes off? I am so confused by people.

Because I don't own any socks. And for some reason, going to buy a pair of socks to wear to the airport always slips off of my to-do list. Actually, I just remembered that I do own a pair now! I bought some cute holiday socks ($1 at Target!) for everyone's stockings, but I haven't cut the tags off them yet. But I did always wash my feet before I put my shoes back on. People would always look at me walking barefoot through the airport, I'd rather do that than put dirty socks back in my shoes.

Change in topic, but I was wondering. If you die while you are logged into Facebook, how long before Facebook will log you out? My good friend is still logged into Facebook. It shows all the time that she is in Chat and keeps suggesting that I become friends with the people she is friends with.

:bighug: I'm guessing never unless/until they delete her account.

So cute. My 6 YO is like the only one of his peers to not lose any teeth yet, nor does he have any loose ones, he keeps asking me when its going to happen but I don't have the heart to tell him he may be 10 with our history Smile

Keep an eye on him! I didn't lose a single baby tooth. Ever. They all had to be pulled by a dentist. Some of my teeth are damaged because of it. My mom didn't believe me when I told her that I had more teeth coming in behind my "already there" teeth, and some of my molars were damaged because her dentist told her that he'd never had to pull a child's molar, they should just get pushed out. Nope. I can't tell you how excited I was when Tiven started losing her teeth on her own!

Had my interview today. Went great! They want me to go back next week.

:pinkelephant: Happy Dance for you!!! I'll second the "way to make your own luck" thing whoever said that!

My neighbors had a baby today, I hope. Her water broke yesterday morning. They headed to the hospital around 4pm and her contractions were less than five minutes apart then. A friend came by about 10:30 to walk their dog and said she was still in labor but making great progress, so hopefully it didn't take much longer. Someone came to walk the dog this evening but I missed him on the way in and on the way out so I have no update. My kids are so excited (they have a little package of hand-me-down toys ready to give away) and I think I've reminded them 238 million times already that the baby is NOT going to be ready to come out & play with them for maybe two years or so.

I took the day off today. I wrapped up my current project on Wednesday, answered some questions about it on Thursday, and thought, why would they need me here on Friday? I asked around, everyone said I was done, so I took the day off. Here's the kicker: I didn't tell my family. Blum 3 I took the kids to school like normal, and then I did some leisurely errands that I've been putting off forever, I had lunch at my favorite patio cafe with a glass of wine, did some shopping for the kids, and enjoyed the gorgeous day. Then at 2pm I called my DH & told him I was leaving work early and I picked Tiven up from school. She was so surprised to see me there! It was such a wonderful day!

Yay, such great news, Fuchsia!

I just don't like socks. I don't like my feet feeling all tied up. And I don't wear shoes that require socks so there's no need to buy any. I dislike shoes and would quite seriously go barefoot most of the time if the world wasn't so icky. I'm barefoot at home all the time, or in slippers.

So funny. I am totally the opposite. I love wearing socks and I pretty much live in sneakers. I hate being barefoot and the only time I am is at yoga, on the beach/swimming, and sometimes in the mornings but usually I wear slippers.

I almost never wear "grown-up lady shoes" that require no socks or tights...if I wear a dress/skirt I wear boots. When the weather is too warm for that I suck it up and wear flats or sandals but it makes me feel weird, and as soon as I'm inside with air conditioning I am freezing.

I wore boots to my job interview even though it was in the 60s 'cause I knew grown-up shoes would make me feel like someone else and not like me. (Luckily I can wear jeans to the next interview.)

Got a call from Aodhan's Little League coach today. He asked if Aodhan would be interested in playing some games with another team, made of some kids from the major league teams and the minor league teams (he's on a minor league team this year). He was really excited about it! Of course the first game is this afternoon so had to switch up my 'winter/summer clothes swap out' project.

Emma has a soccer game this afternoon too which i'll have to miss. Bummer. But I love spring sports!

I love being barefoot or in sandals/flip flops. Unfortunately our climate doesn't always allow that (ha ha, we get just a few months of decent sandal/barefoot weather) and socks are a requirement most of the year outside the house. I'm really particular about my socks. Oh, and if you guys haven't tried them, look for the Dr. Scholls socks infused with aloe. OMG. Foot orgasm.

Laurie that made me throw up in my mouth. Speaking of throw up in my mouth I'm positively sick to my stomach as I sit here listening to contractors tear apart my basement. Construction on this project began JANUARY 4. We had numerous delays due to problems our builder was having. It is 98% done, we entertained down there Saturday night for the first time.......but before I went to Hawaii I had another contractor in here giving me a quote for something else ~ he asked to see our basement. He pointed out a huge problem with our floors (they are all laminate/wide plank looking flooring down there). They had never leveled the concrete underneath the floor properly, and there were areas where when walked upon the floors gave way too much ~ in other words, we were going to have major problems with our floors over time. We let out builder get the rest of our product (sinks and whatnot) in here before we brought it up.....fearing he was going to run. He acknowledged the problem and their screw up ~ but the only way to fix it is to take the ENTIRE loor up. Which means the trim around the floor, everything. In the meantime we have had all brand new furniture delivered and have two new TV's on the walls....because you know, construction was done. Only it isn't done. So now my basement is being ripped apart to be fixed amidst brand new furniture and electronics. I'm just heartsick. Literally, sick. Oh, and I'm hosting 90 people here in 3 weeks. And all of this was supposed to be done by March 10. And its not done. SIck.

Ugh. I am so sorry. I do not have the stomach for such major renovations, I feel like I'd have to be rich enough to hire someone else to oversee everything and I'd just have to move out. I don't have it in me. We did some work on our house when we first moved in and that was that, when we needed to repaint we did it ourselves. (I think we finished painting Juliet's room about 3 days before she was born!)

But your basement will be AWESOME....keep your eyes on the prize and it'll all be worth it.

Ugh Melis that sucks. I am no stranger to renos and have had major issues with the contractors. I never hire anyone anymore without references from our relatives who are tradespeople themselves. Sucks that I trust nobody.

Hope that you get all this sorted out and FAST. I could not imagine hosting that many people (you have room for 90???) in such a short period of time.

We can fit 90 but we fit them much better if its nice out and can use the decks and yard! I think that we will keep an eye on the weather and use a tent for overflow if the weather threatens to be awful. Plus the party starts at 3 ~ so we are getting a lot of families coming early and the people who are getting sitters/who plan to stay late coming later.....so the 90 should be spaced out throughout the day some. Weve had construction work done before, but nothing of this scale. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Its been a hot load of work (and then tears). It does (did?) look great and they are telling me that they can fix this all in a week, which gives me two weeks to move stuff around and get party ready. I have some anxiety medication and martinis in my future, though, if this goes beyond another week.

Sounds like a good reason to throw a big party! I hope the contractor comes through for you. If the new furniture can't be moved out, ask them to wrap everything in plastic so it doesn't get dirty.

Lisa he was in an executive MBA program. So 21 months ago he left for a solid week of school, and a year ago right now his program was on a 12 day trip to hungary and turkey. Since he started he has been at school every other friday and saturday (he left at 8 am friday and got home at 5 on Saturday evening) straight through the 21 months. Its been killer in addition to his work travel.

Home now from going to my friends funeral in North Carolina. It was very sad, and I am thankful it was over. Aside from the funeral, the weekend was nice. We went on Saturday and stayed with SIL who also lives in NC. Then we went on Sunday evening after spending most of the day with SIL. We stayed in a hotel last night then came home today.

I love going barefoot, but it is rough on my feet.

Welcome back, Bonita!

I have no idea what's going on in the world this week, but I have an interview at NBC for a really cool sounding job, they're trying to set it up for Thursday. Best part, I get to go to 30 Rock for it. (I have romantic notions about NBC, I admit it.)

I didn't even apply for anything! They have my resume from somewhere, I don't even know where.

I also got another photo in foodgawker this week (after 20 more rejections since the last two got in).

What a strange week this is. It's all good, though....even if it's just a lot of interviews, it's really good practice. Nutty!

I have a great one at home that I'll send you. Alas, I no longer make it because of my wheat/gluten issue, but it is sooooo yummy. There's milk and molasses, if I recall, and the bread stays very moist for quite a while. Smile

The dr's office called with my food intolerance/candida results. I have to go into his office at 5:30 - an hour away! Cripes, I'm kinda nervous!

Well, the results were not what i expected. I have almost no IgG reaction to wheat gluten and only a low reaction to wheat gliadin. What I am moderately or highly intolerant to are cow's milk, whey (high), crab, baker's yeast, kidney beans (very high), lima beans (very high), string beans (very high), and slightly to mushrooms. So, it seems I am NOT intolerant to gluten. That is pretty good news since none of them are foods I consume regularly. I love me some crab legs, but I can live without. And, since I love shrimp and other seafood and I don't react at all to those I'll just stick to the safe stuff.

The other part of the test was IgG to Candida, which were so high the antigens were practically off the chart. A test considered negative is under 300 or something. A positive test that's 'high' is over 1446 and I was well beyond that by several hundred. That means I have an overgrowth of candida albicans in my digestive system that has infiltrated some of my organs (like my liver, hence the fatty liver disease), my skin, muscles and joints. I googled candidiasis symptoms and I practically checked off everything. The goal is to cut down on any kind of food that the candida feeds on, so high sugar fruits, carbs, most alcohols - anything high in sugar is OUT. On one hand it's great to know that I'm not reacting to gluten, but since I have to eliminate carbs for the time being it doesn't matter much about the gluten. I can't eat rice or corn anymore even though they're gluten free simply because of the carbs/sugar. Just imagine my gut as a little beer brewery. The yeast proliferates with sugar. The more sugar, the more alcohol, the drunker you get. Wink I'm taking supplements to combat the yeast.

That is a lot to take it! A low carb diet can be hard to start (my dad is diabetic) but he's found his stride. You will too. Glad they found out what was going on so you know how to correct it now!

Ditto the above, soy sauce is out for you for a while! Good to know what you're dealing with, though. It makes sense that the gluten-free diet was helping since that lowered the sources for your candida to thrive on.

I like them both, especially summer berries Smile The only thing I loathe about strawberries is that I won't buy non-organic ones because the pesticide is like freaking impossible to get off and organic ones are very expensive. On sale they're about $5 a pound. And, i'm glad I found out about the string beans before I planted them in my greenhouse! I am super jealous of you guys who have access to local organic produce all year round.
