I suppose enough excitement has passed to deserve another post.
A few weeks back I interviewed for a job in a hotel in the village. The interview had gone great, I thought they would surely offer me the job. They said they'd call with offers on Monday, start training Wednesday, etc. Monday came and went, no call. No offer. I gave up hope after a few days and moved on. I was offered a temp job and took it, started the next day. I was thrilled to have work and also have something to do during the day.
Then yesterday I got a phone call from the women who had interviewed me. She said they had an opening at another hotel and wanted to see if I was still looking for work. I went after work that day and told the temp agency my last day at the temp job would be Friday. I am excited!
This weekend is Christmas and I will be spending it away from my family for the first time ever. Instead of being home in Everett, I will be heading to Alta, Utah to spend the weekend with my friend Sam and his family. I am looking forward to having time with a family, even though it's not my family. Alta is supposed to be nice, too. Sam wants me to learn to ski. We'll see about that. Hah.
Today is Katrina's birthday. She and I went out to dinner at a Thai restaurant in town. We always have the best time when we go out together. Guys dig us, apparently. Having it be her birthday doesn't hurt either.
Also, she got a new dog and now we have a dog in the apartment! She is cute. Kind of big, but cute and happy.
