**yawn** I really should have called out
Why did Delishus or whatever the hell her name is on Flavor of Love look like Michael Strahan from the NY Giants?
Where are all of the trash talking Eagles fans today?
Where the hell is Lincolnshire, IL and why will I be spending a week there on business next week?
Why do adults show up at kids’ birthday parties and then eat all of the pizza and cake? Poor kids.
Why did my son call 911 (cause he learned about it in school and wanted to dial something) and hang up and then have the nerve to be terrified when the cops showed up?
How come everytime I attempt to eat healthier, someone brings donuts in to the office?
Why is LOST the best show on tv and no one watches it?
Will I have a new job by Friday?
Is Dunkin Donuts better than Starbucks?
My baby can now say “Nose, mouth, fish, daddy, uh oh, up, down, outside” and still can’t say Mommy.
Am I the only one looking forward to the VH1 Hip Hop Honors show?
And why is Da Brat doing the tribute to MC Lyte?………LOL
Hope everyone had a great weekend. The reunion was nice. My hubby went to a small private school, graduating class of 48 people. He was the only black person in his class. Amazing how these rich folks act.
My hubby’s parents were hard working folks. His dad was a bus driver and his mom owned a daycare. They saved and sent him to private school. He spent the day around kids of privilege and then came back to the hood. LOL
No wonder he can flow so easily in any scenario. More importantly, he knows how to play the game. Walk the line with the Euros.
Which is a great lead in to today……I am going through the first round of interviews. I have two set up today with the Regional Vice Presidents. Tomorrow, I have four interviews scheduled.
I have the navy pinstripes on. Shoes are buffed. Hair is conservative.
You know….I actually look like I know what I am doing? Ha ha.
Thanks for all of the support and kind words. I will keep you guys posted.
P.S. G-Mo….what happened to the Cowboys and the Redskins??????
I walked in this morning and POSTED for the Director position. After a rough week of going back and forth….I made a move!!!
My boss was highly attitudinal (is that a word) but after researching the position, I have decided it is the right move for me. I can’t pass up the opportunity. CHANGE IS GOOD.
I feel so much better now that that’s over. WHEW.
My hubby’s 20 year High School Reunion is tomorrow so we will have a busy weekend and I have to walk in there looking good. Make the hubby look like he did a little something
Have a great weekend Blogfam.
I am currently in a work dilemma. I inquired about a raise and a title increase within my Department. I did a presentation to my two bosses regarding why I felt I was ready for the promotion. (It’s between me and another candidate). That was two weeks ago. The following week, someone from another Department came and offered me a better job, Director title and more money.
The dilemma is that I love my job right now. Having more money to do this would be great. The new title would have made me happy.
The new position means more visibility. Bigger title. Now more involved in Strategy and Planning as opposed to selling. No more clients. No more numbers hanging over my head. Maybe $20,000 more in salary and I go from suits everyday to business casual.
More flexibility. Ability to work from home. However, I will no longer be in front of the customer. No more business trips to cool locations. More number crunching.
As I put everything down on paper, there is no way I am not going to post for it. In addition, I am their first choice.
So on Friday, I need to go to my current bosses and say….thanks but no thanks. I am going after the 2nd job.
I don’t have a problem doing it….business is business. I have to do what’s going to make me more marketable. But it still makes my head hurt. It’s been a crazy couple of days.
