For today...Tuesday, May 14, 2013

On My Mind...I am still unemployed and somehow I thought that would equate to my spending more time writing on my blog but that hasn't happened for whatever reasons!...I have sent a few resumes out for positions with no responses back and also interviewed with a hospice home care agency for a per diem position, that interview resulted in my attending their weekly "team" meeting and "shadowing" one of their social workers on a visit.  That was almost 2 weeks ago and the HR lady said she would call me the next day.  Well she did to tell me that she was going away for a few days and would call the following Tues which was a week ago today.  She seemed pleased with everything though and said she is checking my references and doing a  background check before she sets me up for orientation.  Very positive but as I think the song goes "the waiting is the hardest part".

Outside My window...sunny but a lot cooler than it should be.

What I'm listening to...I've decided to continue to listen to audio books since they are such a habit of mine; it just just takes me longer to get through them but I do!  Right now I am listening to Under the Dome by Stephen King, in anticipation of the upcoming miniseries in June.  I'm also listening to something called a "playaway" when I go for my daily walk (hey I have  to do something  with my time! lol) (A playaway is this little ipod-size thing they have at the library that you put your own AAA battery and earphones into)...I'm currently listening to Summerland by Elin Hillerbrand on the playaway

What I'm reading...Because it's not enough that I'm listening to 2 books, I'm also reading a 3rd!  After seeing the movie "42" (which everyone should see, by the way), I became interested in Jackie Robinson and am now reading a biography about him.  I did recently finish two really good books which I highly recommend, both of them were quick reads for me: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom.

What I'm Watching...Both Survivor and The Amazing Race just finished up and I was happy with how they both turned out, I think it's the first time we were all rooting for the same people!; DWTS is winding down and while I really liked Ingo when it first started, I think it's just time for him to go now.  I really like Ally, Kellie, and Jacoby, not a big fan of Zendaya; watching the daytime shows, The View, The Chew, The Talk and Ellen; also still love The Big Bang Theory and looking forward to So You Think You Can Dance starting again!

Around the house...not as neat as you would think considering I have nothing else to do; laundry waiting to be folded and more to be washed.

In the kitchen...Pork chops will be going in the crockpot for dinner tonight; quick dinners the rest of the week because of baseball

Coming up this week...baseball games tomorrow night, Fri night and Sat night; orientation at the middle school Thurs night; Tucker's running in a 5K to benefit cancer on Sat and we're celebrating Mother's day and my s-i-l's birthday on Sun (Michael had to work on Mother's day so we postponed it)

Picture thought
(and yes he did catch the ball!!!)
