Btw, Amber, do you keep in touch with Casey? When did she have her baby? Was it another boy or a girl? They still in London? I don't remember why I was thinking about her the other day but I was. Thought I should remember to ask you!

Yeah our pool is 3 pools outdoors an adult lap pool the pool where the swim team swims and the regular pool, no weights nothing else, but the best thing it is close enough for our kids to walk to it, so if I get a job that is a good thing!

So met my friend at the Hungarian Club, we had a nice visit, the best stuffed cabbages I ever ate, they put sour cream on top, there was very little rice in it so I felt it wasn't too bad, and no booze for me!!!! Her hubby is so nice and so cute, I was happy for her.

We were at the pool for 2 hours, and Tony is fried with spf 50 on, even I am reddish and I have my base tan from the sun bed, there is a heat advisory for today it is suppose to be 94 but with the humidity the heat index at 110, that is something! So I made the Sugar free brownies and the buffalo chicken dip and we are heading to aunties pool. It should be nice, then I am bringing nan back for the week and I have my big interview tomorrow I was getting all freaked and I thought you know I gotta chill I can only be me!

Good morning, Amber! Slather yourself in coconut oil, and make sure Tony is all slathered up, too-- helps with the sting (so does an advil) and it will sooth the angry skin. Not kidding! Coconut oil takes surface pain/itch away from just about everything, almost instanbtly.

Hope you have a lovely day today! Lots of love and hugs from Oregon!

Just remember: If you get the job, it is the right one. If you don't get the job, then it was not the right one.

Oh good luck with the interview! That was quick . Perhaps you can use the sunburn to your advantage. Having a 'weird' accent tends to help interviewers remember me and I'm sure has played a part in my 95% success rate on getting the job if I get the interview. being flourescent red might be your ticket hehe.

Yeah I can say well I am not good at applying sunblock for one of my weaknesses, I woke up feeling stressed and didnt sleep well, but I gotta just get through this and see what happens and like JC says if it was meant to be it will be, and that is all I can do, be myself and hope for the best!

I forgot what job this is. Is it one you feel you can put your heart into or is it just a high dollar job. You want to do your best at this interview while INTERVIEWING THE COMPANY AS WELL! Nothing is worse than going somewhere that you will not be happy for years to come. Beleive me I know. Went to an interview - walked out knowing I had the job (just waiting for phone call). I knew I had to go to work to support the family but would hate every moment there. I was right! Worked in the same room as the pushy, domineering, overbearing BOSS'S WIFE! Dreaded going in every day of the 6 years I worked there. However, those years also provided for my family & I am thankful for them. LAST FULL TIME JOB I EVER HAD! Guess it did me in!

Good luck today Amber, can't wait to hear how it goes. And yes, if it's meant to be, then it's meant to be. And it's always good practice to be interviewed.
and you'll probably get a good feeling if it's a "match."

You'll be lookin' good no matter what!

Nancy

It was stressful over 3 hours, met with the HR gal, then a trainer guy, then the President of the company, and then the man that would be my boss, the guy who would be my boss really likes that I worked in that area and am physically located there, its hard to tell it was non stop blabbing mainly about differences in my old company they were real curious about that. I don't know he mentioned the OAD profile test being exactly what they wanted to see in a candidate, I liked everyone the guy that would be my boss I liked the best a good thing, and we knew many of the same peeps in the industry so he said I am the first person they interviewed so it may not be a fast decision he said do not take that as disinterest.

I have another interview on Thursday for a marketing job but it is in downtown Philadelphia that is a heck of a commute so if the money is not there not worth it for the stress, but I figure I am not turning down anything.

Wow that sounds intense! If you get offered the job farther away, you could always tell the company that you do want to work for that you have another job offer, but you wanted to give them a chance before you took it. If they spent 3 hours on you though, that looks pretty promising. You must do something pretty complicated.

Yes, remember that you have what they need. Let them know you have other options. They may up the money to get you to travel. Hoping the first one pans out for you though!

Good job on getting through 3 hours. Sounds like it might be a good fit - especially if you get a good feel for the possible new boss. Fingers crossed you get this one.
