Fidelity isn't a feeling...it's a choice.
I had a pretty disastrous week last week, what with having to un-friend/de-friend (whatever) my sister off my FB account and deal with a soggy basement. There was, however, one shining moment. Thank you all for your support and PM’s as I tried to get my head around things.
The fallout from un-friending my sister seems moot. No emails. No threatening text messages. Nothing from the other sibs as to what was going on. She’s pretty poisonous so I was expecting some sort of fall out. Perhaps that shoe hasn’t fallen yet.
I’m fairly certain her husband un-friended me but I can’t really tell because I don’t remember friending him in the first place. I was sure she’d have her kids do the same to me, but so far, so good. I guess cuz she’d have to explain why it would be necessary to un-friend their favorite auntie. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I did the un-friending on “National Sibling’s Appreciation Day” so I guess that’ll have to be my bad forever.
The basement issue turned out better than expected. My new computer seems fine although it looks like I may have problems with the old one as I couldn’t get it to boot up. I may have to disassemble the hard drive and send it to my computer whiz nephew. It’s so old it doesn’t have USB ports if that tells you anything.
I lost some books and photos, but luckily I always get a CD of those I develop, so I should be good to go there. I found one of AJ’s baby pix damaged but my brother is a Photoshop whiz, so I’m hoping he’ll be able to restore it. The books were all from college/MBA program, so as much as I wanted to keep them (only God knows why), it looks like they’ll have to go as I noticed mold growing on some of the pages already even though I had them out and drying for a couple of days. Some packed clothes were also wet so there was a bit of a laundry fest. I spent the weekend salvaging and repackaging things and plan to move all of them out to my storage unit at the end of the month. Here I thought these things would be safest with me. Now, not so much.
The bright star of the week was I had a very good phone interview on Wednesday evening for a position that would be a game changer for me (financially and career-wise). I was told I’d make the next step in the interviewing process but still haven’t heard anything, so any prayers, good thoughts to MOJO you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again, peeps. I really appreciate your support!
