Today was a fairly busy day for me - as days go when you're unemployed. I got up, worked out, cursed at the scale - damn plateau, took a shower and got dressed up for job type stuff. No actual interview. Just testing at WMU for an Office Assistant position and applying in person for another Admin. Asst. position at a local retirement community/assisted living/nursing home place. I scored 100% on both MS Word and data entry which is all they tested me on. They said to allow an hour for testing. I was in and out in 20 minutes. So I shook my fist in rage at the 50 minutes still left on my meter and the money that represented before running over to The Fountains to apply there.

By the time I was done applying there it was just after 3pm and I had nothing to do and nowhere to be. I briefly thought about visiting my grandma since I was on that side of town but I'm really not sure what my mother may have told her about the whole situation with Rick and I and I really wasn't in the mood to discuss it. So I headed over to the hide and go thwap place to do a little exploring. I ended up spending an hour and a half walking through that place. The first hour seemed like 10 minutes...I couldn't believe so much time had passed. The sun was shining, birds were calling to each other, small animals were scurrying through the underbrush, and the branches of the trees were creaking in the wind. *sigh* It was lovely. Several times I just had to stop on the top of a hill and just take it all in.

How could I have never been aware that there was such a beautiful place right on the other side of town? The next 30 minutes went by in real time as I tried to figure out where I was and how to get back to my car. It wasn't too hard - I had just wandered farther than I thought so it took some time to get back to the entrance. Several times I did silently curse the fact that I was wearing dress boots and a skirt. There were some interesting smaller paths leading off into the underbrush as well as one very steep hill where the dirt path was quite rocky that I just didn't think it would be wise to try to navigate with the inappropriate footwear I had on. Another day, another pair of shoes.

When I got back to my car I headed straight home to pull in the drive at just after 5pm only to have Wendy and Beth pull in behind me and kidnap me for a Mary Kay thingy. There were in the area and thought they'd stop on their way by to see if I wanted to come with them. So I went, had a make over and did other girly things for the evening. It was a lot of fun. And that was about it for the day.
