*A Sweeping of the blog* – Updating finally

Hello, yea I know it’s been awhile again. Well Aug. 23rd I was laid off from my employer, don’t get me wrong it was a nice severance package I got but I’d have rather been moved to different Dept. rather than the unemployment line. I’ve been keeping busy with the household chores and cleaning of the laundry and daily actions and motions.

We did however finally get the kids rooms painted and having them moving their furniture to the new rooms finally as well. I thought it would take a year just to get that done and over with, but nope got it done in two days and lots of elbow grease. Now just have to clear the rest of their stuff from down here in the office and I’ll be happy.

I really get do however need to get back to work though, not just for the fact I like earning my keep, but I also like keeping busy and you can only go so far on a house with a limited budget. I had an interview this past Tuesday on the phone thought things went well, asked one thing “When would I be hearing back on this either way”. I was told 24 to 48 hours, gee its Saturday WAY past a two day period now huh? I personally hate that, it shows a lack of respect to the applicants who applied for the position.

I did have an “actual” in office interview on Friday for a software firm, they want someone with access and SQL experience and I have little not a lot of experience in that area. I also have two interviews on Monday one at one thirty in the afternoon and another down north at three thirty. Both Technical Support positions, both at what would fit my skill set to a tee. Pay is roughly what I was making at my old place of employment and one is even just down the street from me. (I’m crossing my fingers on that one.)

I would love to be able to have a chance to work from home again as well. I saw an advert for a at home Apple Advisor position and if I did get that? That would make my year.

I and the Mrs. are heading to a friend’s wedding in morning, and I hope it is spot on great weather wise. I had heard that it was to thunder and pour like crazy. So instead of Cosplaying as Arthur and Molly Weasely, we’re just going dressed nicely and all. The location is up between SLC and Provo and I think I and my wife are going to wear sneakers knowing the area the wedding is being held at.

Anyways, that’s it for now. I’ll be writing a convention report on Salt Lake City Comicon on the Cybernauts podcast WordPress shortly. Till then hope you’re enjoying your weekend.
