Nothing Much

I don't have much to blog about at the moment, but I'm too bored not to. See, that's why I don't like my job. It's under challenging (especially in the summer) and I could do/earn so much more. I've been a very busy little pregnant woman, however, and found myself in three job interviews last week, two of which were call-back interviews. I sure wore myself out tyring to impress so many people (one interview was in front of FIVE people!), but hope that they prove productive. I'm fairly certain I'll get an offer from one of them because my co-worker friend works in the office that's hiring, so I have an "inside" voice on that one. I'm glad and hopeful that I'll get this offer because it's the better of the two positions I put in for, would be more challenging and afford me lots of creative freedom, would pay more money (never something to complain about), and would be with people I already know and am friends with. So go find some wood and knock on it for me. Thanks!

On to this weekend's plans. We're flying home! To Colorado! For a baby shower! (Can you tell how excited I am about this? Just count those exclamation points and you'll get an idea.) We leave Friday evening and return Monday evening. Again, I have to say that I've never registered for gifts and I'm totally into it. I admit that I checked once and only briefly online this week to see if people were indeed getting stuff for us at Baby's "R" Us (only because there's not one in close proximity to our Denver-based family and friends and I was concerned that they were all going to Target where we registered for much less). I scrolled down the screen quickly to the "fulfilled" section just to see that it had become nicely populated in the last week. Yippeee!

A co-worker asked me this week if I had bought a new outfit for the occasion (do people really do that?), so I picked a nice one out that I already have - one that is both comfortable and stylish. I don't want to give the impression that I've let myself go* or anything, now do I? I'll be sure to post pictures and tell you all about it next week, so stay tuned!

*Can you believe someone at work actually said this to me this week? He was only kidding and was of the age to do so (think grandpa), so I punched him on the shoulder, made a joke about drinking one too many beers, and went about my day.
