More Highs Than Lows

July 28, 2014
I'll be wrapping up my week by writing about my highs and lows.

HIGH: I had a great time swimming on Monday with Ev, his mom, and his baby nephew.  I even swam 20 laps!  Okay, the pool is small, but still...my arms were sore, so that says something, right? 


LOW: I got an e-mail back for a job I applied for saying they rejected me...which pissed me off a little because they didn't interview me and I had every qualification they asked for.  Arghh.  I have to not take it personally.  I mean, who knows?  Maybe the job was filled already or maybe they had to post it by law but had an internal candidate.  I just have to let it go.

HIGH:  Despite that e-mail rejection I received, I have a good lead on a job that I am pretty much guaranteed.  That is a relief to know!

HIGH: I made a Ranch pesto rigatoni bake for Everett and Jared using this Pinterest recipe and it turned out really well.  It was so easy to make, and I didn't have to go out and buy many ingredients for it.


HIGH: This weekend I headed back to Ohio and got to see Rachael!  I didn't think I'd be able to see her again before she left for China, but this spur of the moment trip back to Ohio made it possible!  Yayyy!!  We went to Applebee's and saw 22 Jump Street.  I never would have thought that I would make such a good friend through blogging!

 
LOW: I was not feeling well at ALL on Saturday...I think I had some bad food.  It pretty much ruined my whole day.

HIGH: I got to see my parents a little this trip.  We played some cards, and then my mom took me to Wal-Mart and bought me two Essie polishes. (Hellloo Play Date and For the Twill of It!!)  I love how I'm in my early thirties and my mom still spoils me! :D

HIGH: I am so picky about my hair because a lady three years ago cut my hair into a mullet-like shape, and I finally found a hairdresser that did a good job in Ohio.  I was wondering where I was going to get my hair done in Georgia, but since I'm back in Ohio now I was able to squeeze in an appointment at my favorite place!

HIGH: Being back in Ohio is making me 100% sure that moving was right for me!  Don't get me wrong, there are things I really like about Ohio, but so far I'm much happier down in the Savannah area.

What were the highs and lows of your week?

    1. I hardly have ANY pics from that time because I did not want incriminating evidence...Also, I was aware that my hair looked mullety, so I put it in a pony tail every day and used a ton of bobby pins so that no one could tell!!

  2. Getting a good hairdresser is really hard. I had one and then I moved! I agree with Rachael, mullet pics - if you're not too scarred by the experience. : /

    1. It was only questionably mullet-y at first, but as it started growing out it got more and more noticeable!

  3. That pasta looks delicious!!! This weekend I spent some time on my patio with friends, had a nice dinner, went to see the movie Lucy with my hubby, caught up on some blogging and just relaxed. I think I'm still moving at vacation pace lol. Hope you enjoy your week and good luck with the job.

    1. There's nothing wrong with vacation pace once in awhile! Was Lucy good?

  4. "I have a good lead on a job that I am pretty much guaranteed. " DUDE, that is awesome! Congrats on that. As for the rejection, better to know than not, I guess? I'm always torn between wanting to hear back no matter the result or not. Also that pool is big enough for laps to count, psh. I can't even swim so I'm impressed.

    1. Yes, I think being stuck in a car the previous night with no sleep didn't help matters.

    1. Well, I have a good one in Ohio, but don't have the slightest clue on where to go in Georgia! And yes, it was a pretty good week. :)

  7. I still haven't found a place here in Indiana for my hair because I'm nervous about a bad haircut. It's a struggle for real moving to a new place!

    Jealous you got to hang out with Rachael and that she got to hang out with you! Lucky! :)

    1. Thanks!! It's not exactly what I was hoping for, but it will pay the bills (well, at least some of them) and that has to count for something.

  9. Good luck with the probable job offer! I would try not to take it too personally that you didn't get offered the other one ... it was probably something beyond your control (like hiring an internal candidate, as you suggested). I've been there though and it's frustrating. :(

    1. Thanks! I know I'll get hired for it. I definitely need to work on not taking things to heart on the job front.

    1. Hanging out with Rachael is always fun. I need to start swimming more because I had more fun than I thought I would.
