Finally it's Sunday! It's been a crazy busy week (couple of weeks) and at last I have a day with no obligations.
Monday, Josh went for a job interview. I think I mentioned about a week ago that he'd finally gotten a job. Well, my little boy continued to look at the job ads and found one he liked better. It's in the field of electronics and firmware development (please don't ask me what that is) and that was his ideal work. So he applied. And then came down to where I was working to ask what to do because he'd already accepted the other position. I suggested he call this company to ask when the job applications close and state his case. To cut a long story short, he rang and by the end of the day had a job interview. So Monday came and Josh made himself all pretty and by midday I'd had a call saying he'd 'owned' the interview. By Thursday he had a job offer and Friday he called the first job up and told them the bad/good news.
I had to work most of last weekend getting a huge order (that I've been working on for a month) finished in time for a competition. By Monday night I'd sewn the last stitch and the costumes were ready to go. They were picked up on Friday and late that afternoon I had a call from the coach apologizing profusely. Two girls had joined one of the teams and she'd forgotten to tell me so she was two costumes short and can I make them up for her in a rush. Poo! Poo! Bum! Bum! Why does the buck always stop with me?!! If I don't get them done a whole team of girls doesn't get to compete and they'll be so disappointed so then I'll feel bad but I already had more than enough work to do this week so I guess it'll be more late nights.
Running has been awesome! My speeds aren't back to where I want them but I'm feeling so much stronger. Yesterday's long, slow run was a tough, hilly route but I felt great up to 20k. I was trialling a new form of nutrition Powerbar Gel Blasts. They are a jelly lolly style and I decided to have 3 at a traffic stop. Big mistake! I ended up with an awful stitch and had to keep stopping to walk and stretch over the next 2 k. I don't get stitches so I'm blaming the Gel Blasts and I'll be sticking to gels in the future.
But my run yesterday capped off 55k for the week and I'm really happy with the total and the quality. I'm starting to think of races that I want to enter for the year and in the back of my mind I'd love to do the Sydney Half and then the marathon in Melbourne again. And I'd love it if Josh would follow through with his plans and do them with me. Fingers crossed.
