The Job Hunt

For those playing along at home, I've mentioned before that P, Crazy Dog and I will be moving back to the US within the next year or so. Although I don't have to, I've been looking for a new place to pick cotton, and I've applied for a few jobs in the last month. sidenote: for those of you who know about Uncle LeRoy's process, you know how crazy it is.

Today I was notified that I was referred for one of the positions that I applied for...in Los Angeles.
When I first found out, I wasn't very happy...until I found out how much my pay would increase (along with at promotion), then I got happy. This is basically the first step in the selection process. I also applied for 2 positions in Washington state, and I would be REALLY happy if I was referred for those positions.
*******************************************

In the What Was I Thinking category...I did ALL my Christmas shopping for P while we were in the States. I packed everything in 3 GIGANTE boxes and mailed them from VA. What's the problem you ask? I totally forgot how slow mail moves this time of the year. Today I picked up the smallest of the boxes from the mail room, and was told that the other 2 might not make it here before 1 January.

While in the VA, I bought the new iPod Video. I bought a Nano first, then I realized that for just $50 more, I can have 6,500 more songs, pictures AND video!! So I returned the Nano, paid the restocking fee and price difference, and bought a black iPod Video. It's NICE!!!

P has now claimed my pink iPod mini as her own. She calls it her MyPod. Maybe I'll wrap it and put it under the Christmas tree for her.
*******************************************

Thursday night is the LAST class of the LAST class that I need for my Bachelor's Degree. I just have to finish my portion of a group project, and it's OVAHHHHH!! It's been a LONG 3 years. I started school again (after 7 year break) in January 2003.
My goal was to finish by December 2005. Mission accomplished!!
*******************************************

The tooth-es fairy left P $10 for both teeth. She wanted to buy a $15 DVD. I told her that she needed $5 more. She asked me to 'borrow' it to her, and said she'd pay me back when her other teeth come out and the teeth-es fairy leaves more money.
