Siiiiggghhh

Hman had an interview today that we THOUGHT was going to be for a Halifax position. Wires were crossed and hopes dashed when he went to the interview 3 hours away and discovered that the company WANTS him...just not in Halifax. They didn't see the cover letter to his resume that stated he wanted to head east and thus they were meeting him for a job in Ontario. DOH! So there went that lovely fantasy of moving sooner than next year and with my husband in tow. The Halifax job is totally unsuitable as it turns out (entry level)but since they thought he wanted the Ontario job they never said boo at his salary expectations. I'm somewhat bummed tonight.

He, on the other hand, found it a funny comedy of errors and very flattering that they were so excited to meet with him. They said that finding someone with his skills and expertise is becoming very hard to do and his ego got a nice boost. Thats a good thing because with where he is now its a constant beating of head against brick wall.

So, we will still be moving just not sooner like I'd been so hopeful of. Feeling impatient because the decision has been made and now I just want to get going on it.

Happy news: weighed myself yesterday and was down another pound which makes 11 pounds off since mid-June. YAY. Tonight I had a nice PMS induced Aero bar consumption(Oh Aero, how I love you....). Also, the heat is gone. Last night was 9 degrees. I wore my wool socks to bed (thank you Teri) and my flannel jammies. I think its time to put a comforted back on the bed.

My shrug made of Brooks Farm 'Ellie', a thick and thin 50/50 mix of silk and wool, is motoring along. I have the first sleeve on DPNs now and have started the decreases. I am very excited about it and get many compliments on the colours and texture on the knit fabric. Cannot wait to have it finished!

Sorry to hear that the job interview didn't pan out, but goof for HMan for being a "glass half full" kind of guy.
