The week so far

Hello again. Glad you could stop by.

This week is a bit weird. I spent Monday filling out job applications in person and on-line. Haven't gotten a nibble from this batch. It is interesting to see what different companies ask for on a job application though. I won't go into it here, let's just say some companies are very nosy for something that a manager generally glances at for 10 seconds.

Tuesday, my wife had an early meeting as school and then took the rest of the day off to take care of personal business. While she was here that morning, I got a call from one of the companies I applied to a week and a half ago. I have an interview tomorrow (3/16/07) at 10:00am. It is an opening for "Help Desk Coordinator". I worked Help Desks for 2 different companies for a total of about 6 years. And I have management experience! I will excel at this job. All I have to do is convince them. I have been and am damn good at any job.

Wednesday I had both children at home as they both got sick last night. Multiple times if you know what I mean. The laundry was lovely. The good old stomach flu. And while I was home taking care of them, my wife gets sick at school. Now they are all looking at me and wondering when I will get sick. With my current luck, it will be tomorrow during the job interview.

"So your resume says you worked on the Help Desk at ABC Corp., what did you find most challenging about that?"

"Well, the most challenging part of the job was actually..." [Throwing up all over desk and interviewer.]

Hopefully that scene will not play out.

Hi everybody! Is it strange for someone who can't keep one blog updated to start a second one? Probably.

I just felt that I needed a second place to write about things. Who knows where this blog will take me? In these posts you may find such diverse elements as fitness, genealogy, computer stuff, child raising, job searching (anyone hiring?), and anything else I can think of.

My goal is to post here at least twice a week. But don't hold your breath.
