I was going to type more about the job interview yesterday but I was nervous and didn't want to dwell on it. I happened to see this job advertised a couple of weeks ago and kind of applied on a whim. They phoned Wednesday and wanted an interview on Friday. So I managed to get rearrange my patients and take this afternoon off (vacation time) without causing a lot of suspicion at work. Hard to go to a job interview while you are working but at least it's been quiet t work.

I really don't know if I have a chance at this job. It's a case manger position in the community, it would be a step up in pay/responsibility than what I have now. But the interview was definitely geared towards people already working in the community rather than coming from a different setting like a hospital. There was a written exam for 1/2 hour than a one hour interview. I think I did okay but not great. So we'll see.

Relaxing this evening with some red wine. Sure looking forward to the weekend, it's been a stressful week!

Wow, Kim, that sounds like a pretty thorough interview! I can understand you were nervous, and I know what you mean about it being hard to go to an interview when you are working... I did that once and I kind of felt like a hypocrite not telling anyone, but you don't want the boss to get wind of you looking around for fear he might try to find a replacement for you as a result before you're ready to leave.
When do you think you will find out?

I'm taking the day off working out today, I have a fair amount of stuff to do and it all adds up...

Have a great weekend!

They said they would call the successful applicant sometime next week. I need to email them by references and stressing about that. I've asked 2 people but think I should get a third. That's hard to, difficult to ask people you currently work with.

Did Chest/Shoulders/Back today, trying to increase my weights on month 2 of Xtrain and really starting to feel it! My legs ,especially the calves, have DOMS from yesterdays workout (Legs).

DD went downhill skiing with her class on Friday. She had fun but came home with a bad cold so she and I have been having a quiet weekend watching girls movies at stuff. She is sleeping a lot and I've been getting bored! But I do want to keep her company. It's finally got nice out and I had been hoping to do some outdoors sports or just get out for a bit. Seems like we have been home a lot lately.

Cendrine, how is your DH enjoying his new job???
Jo, how is the job hunting going??

I hope dd recovers quickly, ds son has a cough too and I just hope that the rest of us don't catch it this time. It seems we have had more than the usual sniffles and such around here, dh thinks maybe its because we are in a new area and not used to the local bugs...?

Great job upping the weights, Kim, I'm going a bit heavier in legs myself, but I have doms too!

I did low impact Hiit this morning. Had to talk myself into it but I am happy now that I pushed through it. My herbal supplements for hormonal balancing came in and I can't wait to see some improvements!

Jo, how are things with you?

DD seems to be over her cold already . It only lasted 48 hours, all the sleep probably helped.

That could be true about the bugs/immune system Cendrine. Next winter should be better for you.

Tabatacise and core work done ! That one has a bit of a dread factor.

Hey Girls! So DH has been sick sick sick. Emma is recovering well from her spay and then Ibo blew out one of his back leg knees and had to have surgery last week and I had midterm. So between taking care of DH and dogs, the last week got away from me! So here's a funny, when we got Emma, we got pet insurance - never did that before. Last month DH was going to cancel it since none of our animals have ever had issues. Well he didn't get around to doing it and we're glad now! Ibo's surgery + medicine is around $4500.

Kim, last time a submitted a resume on a whim, I got the job! Now that I am really looking, I'm not getting any bites! Glad you dd had a quick cold.

Cendrine, you guys are sniffling too! I hope you don't get it. Knock on wood but both DH and SS have been sick and I didn't catch it YAY!

Gotta go get some dinner going.

I'm so glad to hear you haven't gotten sick, Jo! Poor Ibo! Has he already had his surgery? How did he injure his leg? You sure have had your hands full! I hope this week will be kinder to you!

I did CSS today, and added on some abs.

This weekend I think we are going mattress hunting. It seems as though our mattress is not doing my back any favors, I seem to hurt more when I get up out of the bed than I do doing anything else all day... I'm not sure if another mattress would make things better but I guess we'll try to test a few and see...

You guys doing anything for valentines day?

How are all the patients Jo?? Hope everyone is on the mend.

Cendrine, did you do anything special for Valentine's?? I made little gift bags for my 3 valentines with different candies.:roll eyes: They all seem really excited. No plans for tonight as DH is volunteering at the community club (all the hockey parents need to do some volunteer hours) and ds has hockey practice. But the kids are going to the NHL game tomorrow with the season tickets so DH and I are free and we may go out to supper.

I just finished Supercuts and core work, completing week 6 of the 90 rotation. Only 5 weeks left (I'm only doing 11 weeks prior to vacation) so far so good! The weeks are going fast and I"m not bored of the workouts yet.

I'm off work tomorrow, but have the cable company coming in the morning to look at the tv cable, going for groceries, then have my annual exam at the doctor's. Of course since i"m off the kids want picked up/dropped off instead of taking the bus. Doesn't seem like fun, I think I'll rather be at work. But then it's the long weekend! Monday is a holiday for us!!!

Hope everyone is just busy and not sick.

I have a little head cold slowly me down this week, took one day off my workouts but did do Chest/Shoulders/Back today.

Did everyone see the email that Cathe is filming again?? I'm very curious to hear what the workouts are going to be!

Still very cold here but the days are getting a little longer, it's starting to be light out when I go to work in the morning so that is good for the spirits. It can get hard to take when the days are so cold and dark. Starting to count the days until our spring break to Mexico.

Just busy here. I took a break today because my doms were so bad....

Kim have you heard about your job yet?

Things are getting lighter here too and we actually have some crocuses peeking out by the pond and by the front door there is a camellia bush in pink blossoms, gorgeous. Really does do a lot for the spirit!

I'm curious too about Cathe's new workout project, I wonder if it will be a big one or some smaller ones like she did in between low impact series and xtrain.
