Aw, hell, for once I do feel like going to the flix on a Friday with Jbird, but that's out, because he's having his eyes dilated this afternoon.

I stopped by Dr. Lenahan's office to check it out and see if I'd think I'd like to apply to go back into Optical work. Never mind. Man, that office is packed to where they have to squeeze past each other to get to anything, and all the frames are in locked cases, so you can't really let anyone browse, there's no station at which to let a person sit and do measurements, either. Plus, I told the guy who brought out some frames for me that I would like to see about making an appt. He walked up to the desk, bummed a cig from one woman, danced around and chatted with two other of the gals, but NOT ONCE did he bother to tell any of them that I wanted to make an appt. I was completely ignored. I waited for the one person to finish making a payment, and finally one woman asked if I needed help... five minutes later. er.. I don't think I'd like it there after all. There was one cute young woman who chatted on with me about glasses and is sure that we are daughters of different mothers, but I think being around her all day would be nerve-wracking.. way, way too high energy.

Ah well, I have my resume submitted to two law offices, so we'll see if anything comes of that.

At least this made the other half of my day:



Oh, and Naomi made blog entries documenting her amazing process of her daughter Lily's Marie Antoinette costume. That's a princess costume I can certainly admire!
Thrifted sheets and no historical costuming experience of this level!

Once more I'm considering cutting the hair. But I love the versatility of putting it up and have the short hair look while still being able to have my curls/waves to toss about.

Turning to looking for work. I don't think that parties are going to make our bills come December, and taxes are going to hit us hard next year with my unemployment income. This also depresses me.

Time for activity.. the weather isn't cooperative, but at least I can incline the treadmill and do some walking.
Soup for supper... it's that sort of day.

Hey fellow Target shoppers, if you should see this dress on the clearance rack in Large or even XL, or in black, snap it up for me, please? I'll gladly pay you postage and finder's fee lil gift :)
It's made by Xhilaration, is a soft cotton knit, and not avail online, or anywhere in the Lawrence/KS area but at Overland Park. I'm hoping someone can find it elsewhere in the state/country, or heck even if it's in black (but not the stripes).

I'm also needing some end-of-month orders for Passion Parties, and some hosting for August/September. Let me know if you're interested in helping me out. I have a discount code for online orders at my website, THANKYOU20, it's good thru August 1.

I'm also pretty excited about getting a fancy new webcam and trying out some virtual parties/demos!
Things are looking up. I just sold a couple high-end items by doing private consultations, so that's another avenue I'm exploring.

Oh, and now for the begging, please go like my Facebook page :) Feedback is welcome here on any of my postings, too.

I had an offer for a part-time temp job at a truly awesome place in town that I really wanted to take, but .. Daddy. I could not in good conscience take that job knowing that I may need to be off at a moment's notice if anything goes wrong. I'm sad about that, although Shirley and the Adecco folks totally understood.

In good news, his carotid arteries showed only 10% blockage on both sides and not the 60% predicted. So, his Coronary Double Bypass goes forward on July 5th without prelim surgery. Now for it to just GET HERE already!
Jbird will be off for the rest of the week and half of next week, so he's around if I need to get going. He's a bit disappointed that all vacation plans had to be cut, but honestly? We could not really afford to run off somewhere right now, so it's all for the best.

And again? THIS WEATHER!!! Best Fourth of July week ever for that. Good time to try out this Make At Home Non-Toxic Suncreen Lotion.
