#Microblog Mondays 48


  • I keep reading about how terrible the job market is for people in my field, and yet for three weeks running, I have had one or more emails a week from recruiters wanting me to apply for positions. (Today's recruiter, who is someone with whom I have history vs. just a "cold call," actually pressed on after my initial reply of "thanks, not interested" and asked if I'd change my mind if he could get me a "considerable bump" in salary. Whaaa?) I didn't realize I was so much in demand. Of course, ironically, these emails are coming at a time when I am not job searching. . . .
  • I continue to be plagued by GI problems on the tail end of whatever virus my sons had more than a week ago. It's been about ten days, actually. Ugh
  • My sons have been getting up to shenanigans at bedtime that have been keeping them up 1-1.5 hours later than usual, and it's no good. Trying out a new approach to bedtime starting tonight. Wish us luck!

  1. It's still nice to be wanted even if you're not looking. Means they see your value :-)

  2. If you figure out something around bedtime, let us know if it works. Little G is hitting bed at 10pm regularlty.

  3. Good luck - we just had major bedtime problems with James and had to change up our routine as well. Luckily it seems to have worked, at least for the time being! I'm sure in 4 weeks we'll be fucked again! ;-)

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
