Random Updates

Well, the update on Cody is not good. His only option is chemo which would just prolong things a bit, not cure him, and my mom is against it. I agree with her that it is really just for the people and doesn’t do anything for the pet. She wants to remember him as the happy, bouncy sweet guy that he is. Of course if this was my dog, I don’t know that I could make such a decision, but I do get where she’s coming from. It is so so sad, though.

**********

My interviews yesterday went well. The first was more of a “Is she breathing and can she string a coherent sentence together?” kind of deal. And apparently I am and I can! Because now I’m here temping (blogging) away! So far it’s boring as hell. They’re still getting me hooked up to the network, and so far my only task has been to print out the attachments from a couple e-mails and 3-hole punch them. WHEW! I am beat! Not to mention I’m giving Rachel a run for her money for most ridiculous task that a person can do themselves and does not need a temp for. Hopefully I’ll get something a little meatier soon. So far I’m not so sure I’d want to work her long-term though. It’s a little quiet around here. Although there is free ice cream in the “cabanas” (their completely misleading term for the kitchenettes).

Ugh, another "please print this email" request. Pardon me a minute…

Wow. That is really taxing. I think I have a headache from all this thinkin’. How does it go again? Double click to open, Ctrl-P to print…hmm maybe I should write this down.

Thanks be to hay-soose the other interview at the Real Estate firm also went well. It was with two women from HR, but I think we hit it off and I should hear back by the end of this week if I’ll make it to the next round. It definitely seems like a nice place to work and the job sounds fun. Plus W and I own a 2-family in Manchester, NH and are kind of into the whole real estate thing (despite being SF renters at the moment).

This morning I got to the temp gig and was given a form to take down to the building’s security office so I could get a photo id. It turns out this building is managed by the company I interviewed with yesterday, so when I saw their logo on the form, I was so confused. “Did I already get the job? Where am I?” Man, just a few days of unemployment and my brain goes to mush!

***************

I don’t think I already mentioned this on the ole’ blog or not, but poor W thought that my beta was this past Sunday, not next Sunday. He was kind of devastated. Now he’s kind of wanting me to POAS, but I just don’t know. I think once Leah gets her BFP tomorrow I’m going to be more inclined, but for now I remain steadfast in my resolve (heh) not to bust out the sticks.

I just have to say, this post had me in stitches!!

Are you sure you can handle all that tough work they have for you at the temp place? Whew! :)

I am sorry the news about Cody isn't great. My cousin had chemo done on his dog and it has been great - the dog is doing fantastic. I think it depends on a whole bunch of things, like the age of the dog, other health problems, etc.

I am glad your interviews have gone well!

Lori said...

If W wants the realtionship with Pregger's hubby, then let HIM cultivate it. You shouldn't put yourself through that brain damage.

That's my assvice.

Busted said...

Ok, now I feel like an ass because I email stuff for others to print sometimes...but only if it takes a really long time to print and I have other things that are time sensitive!

Totally identify with your annoyance with "preggers" and the past posts about her. What a pain!

Amy R said...

My goodness, why do you torture yourself with friends like that. W's a big boy and can hook up with male counter part whenever he wants. But you don't need people like that right now until you get your BFP next weekend :) Speaking of which, learn from my stupid mistake. Don't POAS. I know I know, I should talk. Feel free to send me a hate email now :0

Von said...

Good God where to start?
Other that to say Murphy is indeed a Bastard..........

Sudden jet setting in laws, stomach rubbing preggers women, confusing jobs.............

Christ.

Very sad about Cody. That is truly awful.

Fertilize Me said...

I agree with Von!! She says it perfectly

Reproductive Jeans said...

Im so sorry about Cody...so sad=(

Sounds like the interviews are going really well--that must make you feel good=)

Wanting & Waiting said...

I'm so sorry about your mom's dog...I'm an animal lover...it tears me up to think of a suffering pet. My thoughts are with Cody, your mom and you.

Rachel said...

Ugh. Sorry about Preggers. And sorry about your awfult temp job. I broke down and applied at the coffee shop. The initial conversation with the manager went well, I think.

Poor Cody. But I agree with Mom. The poor guy doesn't understand what's happening and is probably miserable. I had this discussion with T about our cat once. She had a kidney infection. If it was renal failure, I said we could not give her dialysis because it seems cruel to her. She can't understand it. It's still really painful, though.

Thinking of you.

Ms. Planner said...

E, your post had me giggling the entire way through. Re: your inlaws, do they know how far WA state is from SF? Swing down my ass.

My assvice: banish preggers. now. How freaking rude. I mean, seriously, people.

Lastly, I am so sad to hear about Cody. I would do the same thing as your mom but it would break my heart. I start to tear up just thinking about it.

Courtney said...

I'm glad to hear that the interviews went well! Tell that preggers lady to kiss off because she sounds insensitive.

*Thank you for the kind comments.

Carrie said...

I'm so sorry about Cody. It is such a difficult decision to make and see through. Really tough.

I can't believe you entertained the idea of being in the same room as preggers right now. She sounds truly awful. Yuck. You're a better woman than I am. I wouldn't/couldn't do it (and I wouldn't care either )
