I have an interview for the legal assistant job tommorrow morning!
It is part time two days a week at a place I would be proud to work!
(OOPS if I mentioned WHERE I APPLIED previouly.... Have to go back to edit as if I GET THE JOB I can MAKE NO MENTION OF WHERE I WORK on this site!)
Westley told me that his co-worker had a reference for a sitter. He himself said he was excited for me that I got the interview but that he had people coming in town from out of the country to meet him for a 9am meeting so he can not go in late tommorrow. He was helpful in offering to take one of the girls to work with him! (Which I don't really think is a good idea-- but it made him redeem himself in my mind after him complaining about "sitting" for me this weekend!) He's TRYING to be supportive although he admits he'd PREFER If I didn't work at all!
This is great though, as if he likes the sitter maybe he can use her when I am gone and then maybe he won't be such a jerk about acting like its a big deal when I am gone! That complaining drives me nuts! I should be able to go away for a weekend without it being a crisis. Heck he goes out of town REGULARLY without it being a crisis- even if that does mean the house gets a bit messier without his help picking it up and motivating the girls to clean up. (They do become more cooperative for him than me!)
I am sick of him acting like its a burden when I take off. I don't give him a guilt trip when he leaves!
AND I DO KNOW SOME WOMEN WHO DO THAT! Some can't handle it when their spouse is gone and they lose it. I understand that this LEGITIMATELY is a fair complaint for some who had a bunch of kids TOGETHER expecting that they would have the support of a spouse, and not expecting their significant other to be GONE ALL THE TIME. I don't have that gripe! I ENJOY when WESTELY is gone, and I APPRECHIATE WHEN HE IS HERE how the household runs smoother, how I am more organized. I never seem to lose my keys when he is here- as if I set them down in some strange spot of the Impeccible home (since he can't handle it a mess) HE NOTICES and he POINTS IT OUT so I then put them away on the hook where I can actually find them the next time I plan on leaving.
Westely is traveling now and returns late tonight.
I now have to continue cleaning THE WRECK OF A HOUSE which I always let slide when he is gone. the poor kids have the house go from one extreme to the other! Maybe there is some balance in that?
I hope to find my keys in the process of cleaning! I clearly HAD TO HAVE BROUGHT THEM IN THE HOUSE when we returned home yesterday!
Yesterday I was proud to at least have WRAPPED and PREPARED to mail Christmas packages yestersday (even if done at 5:15, just a bit too late to mail)
