Crazy last couple of days...
It started on Wednesday night, when kid #4 got the pukes. I had a job interview on Thursday morning, which had me worried, so it wasn't like I was going to sleep much anyway.
The interview seemed to go well... Hopefully I'll find out just how well later this week. The interesting thing is that when I spoke to my current manager about it, he indicated that he might be able to leverage the possibility of my leaving to get me a pay increase.
I appreciated the gesture, but at the same time, it's sad that it takes a threat of me leaving to do something like that.
So, if an offer gets made (PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!), then I get to see if there is a counter offer at my current position, and then weigh the options.
The nice thing is that my boss seems to be a little extra friendly right now... Wondering if I should try and capitalize on it... I mean he's always been very accommodating, and there really isn't a reason to leave, other than the fact that we're just not making it right now. Well, that and I feel like my career is stagnating, but I think I can work with that - just need to take some initiative.
The remainder of my weekend went something like this.
Friday was relaxing. Nice to have all my vinyl projects done.
Friday night I grabbed my race packet and then took the family to Chick-Fil-A.
Kid #4 decided to puke in the restaurant though.
Kid #5 then got sick, and spent the night puking.
I raced a half marathon on Saturday morning, and completely slaughtered my previous best time for the distance.
I think with the solid training base I have, perhaps now training is more advantageous for recovery.
I got a touch of what the kids had on Saturday evening and the rest of my weekend was pretty miserable. And I still can't walk.
During the race - actually all the preceding week, my cell phone has been iffy. I got done, and tried to call Mrs. Koda, but it was acting up more than normal, and so I tried to reset it.
It's a virtually indestructible phone. Water-proof, shock-proof, dust-proof and all of that... I think the static from a shopping cart at Walmart destroyed it though.
I haven't been able to get it to turn on since.
So yesterday I went and got a new phone. It's a smart phone with internet access.
It cost a little more than my current phone, and we really don't have the money, but...
I'm hoping it will make me more productive, and hopefully from that increased productivity, I can generate more income.
It's the beginning of a new week, and I feel like it's the beginning of a new segment of my life as well... Not just the phone, but just a whole bunch of things.
I greet the new stuff with open arms and a whole bunch of confidence.
In other news, I saw these guys perform a year or so back. It has nothing to do with the above post, but I liked the song especially!
