Thanks to everyone for their congrats and support.
And yes, now I'm back in a 2ww. Two weeks until my U/S to hope I don't screw things up.
Yesterday, in 102 degree heat, I emptied the water from the hard plastic kiddie pool that our dogs use. I use a bucket and a "scoop and toss" method that requires a lot of squatting and twisting. Afterward, my belly felt a little strained. I was hoping it was simply my abdominal muscles protesting (I've been a little overprotective of my belly lately).
Okay, girl, time to be careful and to THINK before acting.
Oh, no job interview today either. About 2 hours after the woman called me to set up the interview, she called back to cancel it. She mentioned that there is a list of surplus employees (the laid off state workers) who they must first consider. [Me, thinking, um, yeah, I knew that - didn't you know that when you called me?]. She asked whether I was on the surplus list. No, I am not. Which it seems to me they should have realized. I submitted an application and a resume, which clearly shows I worked for a private firm and was not a state employee. So the interview is off. Until the list is cleared, apparently, I cannot be considered. I wish one hand would check with the other to figure out what is going on before calling unemployed hopefuls.
Nevertheless, I am going to make today a good day. I hope you all have a good day, too.
