The ENERGIZER Sister

I think I might have done it, I think I have a job. Lord, I hate to use the word think, but for now that's all I can do. I also thought last week that I had a job, and I found out that I did not. However, this time I honestly believe it---let's wait until I know for sure before we mention it again, okay? I do have another interview today, with the same company but with a different person, mostly to affirm the one that I had yesterday. I won't know anything for sure until the first part of next week, and until then, I'm not saying any more so I don't jinx it. I realize these things take time, but the waiting is really difficult. Sigh...

My home is not mine anymore. I like the feeling - it is clear, not necessarily clean, but clear of things...the breezeway however, is another story. It has box after box of STUFF, priced and stacked on top of each other, ready for the sale. Seriously, for every box of junk that is out there, there have been two that have been thrown away. I am down to a closet and a half of my clothes, and some of them, if the truth were to be told, probably should be in those boxes as well. But for whatever reason, I find it impossible to let go of them, just yet. I have kept the most important things, and even those things are more than I wanted to keep, but I cannot be heartless. I keep worrying that someday I will probably lose my memory, hell-I'm not far from it now, and those things will be a reminder. But still, I feel like I have been very successful in my cleaning. It is amazing how much stuff had accumulated here.

Of course, the weather prediction for tomorrow is lousy. Storms, lots of rain and wind, just what is needed for a successful moving sale. However, in the ad that I put in the local paper, I wrote "rain or shine", so the show will go on. Saturday looks pretty good weather-wise.

My poor sister has worked her tail off, I'm certain that she is ready to get out of here, this has been a lot of work. She is such a trooper, though. After reading all of your comments, I am thinking about renting her out...she's easy to keep and only has a few funny idiosyncrasies...You pretty much just have to keep her in coffee, and half and half, she'll go forever. Honestly, she is the best.

Everyone have a great Thursday. I am planning to. :)

I hope you hear from them soon that you got the job. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! I'm also trying to influence the situation with a little mental telepathy.

You have an amazing sister!

I love hearing you so happy! I can't wait to hear how your weekend sale goes and the 'other' news. Enjoy your day!

Smocha said...

Damn you guys are FAST!!

GOOD GOOD LUCK on the job!!!!

I'd love to rent your sister for about a week. Lots of coffee and half-n-half. She'd hate you for it though when she saw what's here. On second thought, cancel that. It just wouldn't be fair to her.

You've done an awsome job to be finished this soon. Hope the garage sale is a booming success and that any other news is exactly what you'd like it to be.

Oh boy oh boy.....this is very good news! Post a picture of your yard sale...we want to SEE. I'm keeping everything crossed that I can for good news about THE JOB! Maybe...FINALLY...things are looking up for you and the rest of us too. Soul's good news plus I had some good news today myself. I overpaid on my gas bill and acually have nothing due PLUS a credit. LOVE IT!
Hope today is a good one!!

I have every finger and toe crossed for you. Not sure how I'm going to walk around like this, but I'm used to looking like a goof.

Like Cheryl said, it's good to hear you sounding happy. You deserve it in spades.

lovins,

I know the wait to know has got to be driving you crazy. It would me. I will do a little happy dance when you get it. You deserve good things to happen!

Beth said...

I'm so excited for you! I can't wait to hear about the job. As for the sale, throw up a tarp, it'll bring in the die hard buyers.

Enjoy the sale!!
