Why is it that you always wake up earlier than usual on the one day of the year that you are given an extra hour to sleep?? We had a perfect Portland day today – 60 degrees and a little rainy! We took The Max (public transit) downtown and bopped around and then had lunch 🙂 Isn’t it funny how you can always “figure everything out” when you’ve had a couple of beers??
Well, I haven’t quite got it all figured out, but I do know that I need to re-write my resume. I’ve sent out at least 40 resumes and haven’t received one call! I will consider that a big, fat HINT!! So, I have to be creative and show the hiring managers that I have skills, even though I have been doing my own thing for seven years. The funny thing is, I have more skills now than I did when I had a “job”. I have learned so much and tried so many things since I’ve been doing my own thing! I had time to create several websites, market several businesses and interact with lots of different types of customers! I just need to get someone to call me, then I will be able to sell myself, right??
Kevin had an interview this week and he has another interview on Tuesday with a different company (yes, he’s got SKILLS!) Hopefully he will get to be just a little bit picky so he can do something he enjoys instead of just getting a JOB!
We are still thrilled and delighted to be back!! We had so much fun this weekend! We went trick or treating in Wilsonville with Kurt and Becky’s kids; David and Sydney. Their neighborhood was unbelievable – there were kids EVERYWHERE!! We have never seen so many people out trick or treating!! One of the houses was really SCARY- it looked like a movie set! The owner was dressed like the guy from Chainsaw Massacre and was chasing some of the kids around with a chainsaw- very funny!! We decided that someday we want to be that house 🙂
Last night we went to see Ken & Candi- they have 2 dogs, KC and Hannah. Cali has been friends with KC since he was a pup, but they got Hannah after we left – so they are new friends. We all had a wonderful time! It feels like we never left!!
Sorry there are no pictures this week- we took the camera over to Ken & Candi’s and we forgot the CF card! (okay, I forgot it!) Like Ken said, this big expensive camera isn’t worth much if it doesn’t have the CF card in it. Next week we’ll have some more pics 🙂
Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
