Mon. Jan. 27, 2014: Cocktail Parties and Oil Changes — Contrasts!

Busy weekend. Got some good work done on TRUE HOME and on SEAL TIDES. Got some research done, and read John Lithgow’s memoir — interesting, because we’ve worked with a lot of the same people, although we’ve never worked with each other.

Friday night, I was disappointed to learn I did not get a job I’d hoped to land, especially since what they claim they wanted is absolutely in my wheelhouse, and I’ve done similar projects on a much larger and more public scale. I was also disappointed that, after having me in for more than a half a day to jump through interview hoops, they send a form letter email from someone with whom I had no dealings. That seems a little declasse to me. A friend, familiar with the organization, thinks I dodged a bullet, and I just have to trust it all happened for a reason.

On Sunday, I went to a cocktail party one of the Board members threw to introduced the Marine Life Center to her neighbors. Cocktails, appetizers, conversation, quick presentations. It was a lovely evening, and I was happy to participate.

Home, out of the dressy clothes, into PJs and made a stir-fry!

This morning, I was out the door early to get an oil change in the car. It needed it, and now runs like a dream. I’m working at Sturgis Library this morning, hoping I get enough done so I don’t have to head out again at the end of the day.

This will be a BUSY week, but in a good way!
