My birthday was really great. We did not end up doing anything I had in mind. No Jack Astors and no Putting Edge. Why? I have no idea the day rolled around and I just wasn’t in the mood so I asked Cory if we could go for a drive instead. So we did.
We drove down the south shore towards Mahone Bay through Chester. I brought my camera with me to take pictures and guess what? I never took one! Not one! Why? I have no idea. I just felt like driving. Cory was not feeling the greatest and mostly dozed off beside me but I still had a good time. I enjoyed the driving which I have not done in a long time. I also enjoyed the heat and the sun. Then we came home and got an ice cream cake it took us 3 days to eat.
It was the oddest birthday ever. I just was not in a birthday mood. But I still enjoyed they day itself as a day and the company, even if he wasn’t feeling the best.
I’ve been slacking on the blogging. I hate using my phone. I really could share my iPhones Internet with my computer and do it that way but I just don’t feel like it. And the tablet is great but that “newness” is wearing off a bit and I find at home with no Internet it’s a glorified eReader. At work it passes the time though.
Speaking of work. There is a temporary 3 week position coming available because on of our team members is going on vacation. He is basically our internal support. When we don’t know something and can’t find an answer in the documentation we ask him (or the other one).
So I applied. I don’t know how good a chance I have but the coach that posted its led for a brief paragraph explaining why we are interested. When he got my email he turned (he sits close to me) and said “Good answer Kirsten! That’s what I am looking for!” Then proceeded to tell me be was glad that I am applying. So that felt good. Doesn’t mean by any chance I got it but it means I caught his attention. Now if I can ace the mini test and interview I might actually have a chance. Then again it depends on who else applies and what they say/do etc. it would be nice though… A foot in the door so to speak.
Oh! And I got a raise! 3%. Doesn’t seem like much but I was one of only a few most got 2% or below. 5% was the most and sounded like no one got that. 4% I’m not sure about but I don’t think many people if any got it on our project. We can so use it. We’re so behind right now. Rent for July is not even paid
