Had my usual Wednesday night date tonight. Down at Sammy's house. I was out of work early today so I headed down and then we grabbed dinner. Once again Jay and Erika were the ideal team. And Sammy was cute as a button and made all those irresistable squeaks and whimpers. Let's all say a prayer they get some sleep tonight, k?
Speaking of sleep I should be in dreamland by now. But I needed extra time to wind down tonight. No bad stuff, just stuff. Work stuff. Grandparents stuff. Mom stuff. Remembering to live for today stuff.
Keegan is with Tom until Friday because his parents are in town and I wanted them to have extra time with Keegan. So two nights in a row without him. Weird. Not that I haven't found many things to fill the time. Tomorrow night I am shopping for an interview outfit and new shoes. May the fashion gods smile upon me.
Meanwhile back to why I should be asleep. I am presenting tomorrow at a conference. Twice. I really should stop volunteering for stuff. It is only 40 people so I'm not thinking that I will be nervous. But then again it is in front of people who may have a say in my candidacy if I make it to a second interview. The good news is that they don't know I applied so hopefully they won't be watching me with their scrutiny glasses on. But then again it does give me the opportunity to show my stuff. Oh and of course I'm wearing a new outfit and my lucky shoes.
