    Do it! You can apply and see how it goes, get a feel for the place and the people (a little bit at least). You don't have to accept if you get either job... But you'll kick yourself and regret it if you do not try at all. It's scary - good luck! :)

    There's a 1/4 inch of ice on everything. I have a 16 y.o civic that is my only means of transportation to and from work. I have no money to replace/repair said civic if I wreck it driving on ice.

    I'm about to go walk down my road and see if it's passable. Considering that my front porch was like a skating rink it's not looking likely.

    I'm going this morning to pick up a dog for my boss for a pit stop at my house before heading down with me. So yesterday while all the arrangements were being made I forgot to ask what the woman will be driving and now I can't get in touch with anyone. I suppose I'll find her somehow. :eek:

    Gas gauge has not been working on my truck for a long time. finally took it in to get fixed. Knew they would call and say this and that needs fixed as well. Was supposed to be a 300$ fix that is now up to 1,200.

    I'd just get a new car but until we find a house the mortgage guy told me not to take out another loan. ugh!

    Cover letters stress me out... A lot. I kind of want to cry because this shouldn't be so hard.

    I'm hungry but I can't find anything yummy in this house. Well, let me rephrase that... lots of yummy stuff. But nothing substantial that is going to fill me up or feel like a meal. =P

    I have to get blood work tomorrow at 11:45 am, which means nothing to eat or drink except water after 10 pm. Ugh.

    I've been trying to place an order for Nosework stuff on & off since before Christmas. The place uses Pay Pal to process their payments. Everytime I've tried to submit my order, I get a screen that says there is a problem- could be Pay Pal, could be the site I'm ordering from. Seems I'm the only one having this issue. The place I'm ordering from's only suggestion was to clear cookies, which I had done at Christmas time. So, their only other answer was to place the order via mail, and pay with a check. It takes them at least 2 weeks to process internet orders (in fact, they don't do mail orders at all). Since my order is coming from NJ, it's a safe bet I won't have my stuff for at least a month.

    I just feel like crying cause I'm losing a close friend and it sucks. And I honestly NEVER saw it coming. It makes me feel like crap. She's just changing and becoming someone I never thought she would be. It sucks a lot.

    I must have stupid tattooed on my forehead. You don't ever text/call, it's been two years since I've hung out with you, and I know you saw me in the gas station the other day and didn't bother to say hi (I didn't either, but I was hoping that chapter was closed). And yet you still feel it is appropriate to text out of the blue to borrow money? Before that it was rides..now money..geesh, glad I dropped you like a bad habit.

    :nono:

    My best friend's gramma passed away today. Not really a vent, just really sad.

    Just when we start to get something done, they pile more crap on.

    Jin's last PT test and EPR was in November. It was DUE in November FOR these Italy orders. Specifically.

    Now they are saying he has to re-do both, and he isn't allowed to put any bullets on this EPR that he had on the last EPR. It's been two months, and they shoved him on back to backs. Obviously he hasn't had any chance to volunteer or do anything to get any bullets. So he has nothing good to put on this EPR except maybe a passing PT test.

    WTF.

    On top of this, Jin's sponsor (yes, he FINALLY got one this week) is a complete dipwad and knows zilch about anything we are supposed to be doing and it's screwing us up MORE. He said Zander only needed to be UTD on shots. Uhm. No, obviously not. He needs an international microchip, re-done rabies, and it has to be done 21 DAYS BEFORE he gets his 10 day health cert. THAT IS SORTA A BIG DEAL. He also still hasn't made our lodging reservations. We still have no idea what Jin will be doing over there.

    TMO won't talk to me and Jin's phone service sucks out there, so that still needs to be done, obviously. Housing people come Monday to inspect the house. Taxes need to be done. Appointments for his out-processing need to be made. He needs to train for this PT test. He needs to re-do his EPR.

    And they stuck him on THREE back to backs and ALL of his measly two day breaks are on the weekends so we CAN NOT get anything done.

    These people are trying so, so hard to screw us over.

    I guess somewhere along the line I developed a metal (nickel? Idk) allergy so I have to be careful about earrings, belt buckles, and so forth.

    I bought some new jeans like a month ago...I guess the buttons must be whatever I'm allergic to because I'm so itchy. :( So annoying.

    Clear nail polish. Paint it on the buttons that touch your skin.

    Yep, this! As for earrings, you can dip them in Vaseline before putting them on. Although I'm sure the nail polish might work, too.

    The other day I went to work and found our newt dead (he was ancient, but still). Now one of the bunnies has something vestibular going on. Having a collection full of senior animals sucks :(
