Everything is well with my world right now. Had today off and my heart is singing with relief about the definite job offer and the pending one. Karin and I went to a brunch which was PACKED with people, lots of friends and acquaintances from the AWC, and, thankfully, NO DRAMA.

Afterwards, we went to the mall, ate lunch and bought some shirts and sweatshirts for the kids. Guess who only wanted to shop in the BOY'S section? :P At the food court, we ran into one of my prospective co-workers from Company A, who I interviewed with last week, and we chatted for a minute and then he asked me if I'd talked to the boss, and said, "Please say yes! I NEED YOU!" with a beseeching look. I laughed and told him that his desperation would weigh heavily in my decision.

Best of all, Anders is home! :) :) :) and we have no plans tonight, which is great, because we are busy every single day for the REST OF THE MONTH. I exaggerate only slightly.

I feel like I've lost the thread of my writing here, in this journal. It's been hijacked by real life and I haven't had time for stopping to drink in the beauty of the autumn season or musings on times past or philosophical conundrums. Hopefully in a short while I will be fully back on track.

Other Things Real Life Has Also Pushed Me Past Lately: cleaning out the damned art bench in the playroom, making giveaway packages of collage and paper art supplies for friends, finishing the overdue update of the family website.

Names I'm Considering Saddling a Theoretical Future Dog With: Tivo, Weebl, Snerk

hooray for The Husband being HOME! I know you are relieved. And such a good sign that potential coworker said that he needed YOU! Everyone does, you know ;)

He was so funny...I really thought for a second he would fall down on his knees and beg. :P Wouldn't THAT have been great! hahaha!

Yay for husbands being home!

Karin is so funny ... Lydia would rather die than be forced to shop in the boys' department! I don't know where she got that, though -- I *still* shop in the boys' department for myself!

We walked through the girl's dept and Karin's eyes just glazed over. And she got that look on her face, I'm sure you know it well. Pure child disgust. :D

Why isn't there TiVo in Sweden? It's the best thing, ever! Or maybe there is and it's called something else. But it's become it's own VERB in the states. Man, I want TiVo. And it's a beauty of a name for your future dog.

How the heck do you get people to be nice here? The first time I get, like, actual interest in my blog and it turns into "let me prove that I'm the biggest jerk reading your blog..." (many comments, including some about Tobey's grammar--English IS his SECOND language dontcha know--have been deleted)

I mean, if they don't agree or actually do think I'm full of crap, fine. Why do they (he) keep coming back?

By the way, I am horribly curious who Co. A and T are. I hope I'm not the only one. And I hope you'll eventually tell!

I think it's weird there is no Tivo here, too, but maybe it's still such a new phenomenon it just hasn't found its way here yet...I suspect it won't be long. I know they have something similar upcoming in Australia.

It sounded to me from reading the comments that you DIDN'T delete that your troll wasn't an American in Sweden, and possibly not American at all. It's too bad that people CAN'T play nicely. But I also think that any debates about politics and religion are apt to bring out the worms from the woodwork, one huge reason why I avoid such discussions at all. They come back because you're giving them attention. Delete without comment.

I know you are curious :) along with everyone else, and I actually DID have the real names of the companies originally in the first couple of posts about them, but I went back and changed them to generic names when I realized that it might not be a good idea to be talking about this stuff online before I actually had the job. :) Whichever job it is that I end up with. I will tell once the contract is signed, I promise :)

I think you may be right that the troll is not American. I can't quite put my finger on why I think this, it's just a feeling.

Damn you for boring us with real life in your journal!! We don't care!!! We want nothing of your real life!!!


I know!! My bad! :D
