A Nice Relaxing Day

Today was one of those very unusual days when I could have slept in but Daisy had other plans and was ready to get up at 4:45am. I was so tired last night as my brother and I cleaned house yesterday from top to bottom. The house hadn't been cleaned really good since before we both came down with the flu a couple of weeks ago. I am hoping and praying that today will be a good day for my brother. He went on an interview last week and is supposed to know something today. It's a good job that pays a lot more money and there won't be any of the drama that he has to put up with at his current job. Since the apartment is all nice and clean from yesterday, there really won't be much I have to do today so I should have a nice, relaxing day. We even have leftovers from last night for dinner tonight so no one will have to cook. My brother made crab salad and it was so good. All together, the meal is about 300-400 calories so I am good with my diet. I hope everyone has a great Monday!

Sorry that you couldn't have a lie in after all your work yesterday. Enjoy a lazy day today, if Daisy will let you.

Daisy was pretty good yesterday so she must have known how tired I was. I watched Hulu and Netflix all day with both dogs in my lap...lol.

Crab salad is really good, I hope to hear good news for your brother. Try to relax and rest. How is Daisy? Fully recovered from the surgery?

Yes, crab salad is really good and my brother puts some really good spices and stuff in it. He even used low fat when he could and it still tasted really good. Daisy has fully recovered from her surgery. Her incision is almost completely healed. As for my brother, he didn't get the job as the guy had someone interview who had more experience.

@simone10 I am sorry about the job, I hope he can find something that does not oblige you to move too far from where you live now.

@LadyDuck I hope so too. He did hear about a job he applied for last night. It's about two hours away which isn't too bad. He has a phone interview sometime in the next couple of days.

Really sending some good vibes for your brother to get that job. He seems to be quite a decent guy. Good luck brother!

He is a wonderful guy and a great worker but unfortunately he didn't get the job. There was someone who had tax credit experience and he didn't.

Thank you! My brother didn't get the job but he isn't letting it get to him and will continue looking for another job.

@simone10 Perhaps it's a case where God has a better job lined up for him down the road...not that long ago my husband had a job lined up that I didn't get because he failed the maintenance portion of the aptitude testing, the one part he should have passed with no problems. He was getting ready to retake the test when we got the offer for the job he currently has...one he would not have accepted had he gotten the other.

@Platespinner That is pretty cool about your husbands job. Everything works out the way it is supposed to. I do believe that God has something better in mind. Last night, he got an email about another job he had applied for. They were wanting to do a phone interview and next would be the in person interview. It's a couple of hours away but it's still in Arkansas. He was really excited about it so maybe this is the job he was meant to have.

Daisy is keeping you busy. I hope your brother gets the new job. Enjoy your nice relaxing day. I will be waiting for the repair man to come and fix my dryer. I have clear out my laundry room so he can get to it. I will be busy today.

Sorry to hear about your dryer. It seems like it is always something, doesn't it? Yes, Daisy keeps me busy and on my toes. She is almost 8 months old now but still has her puppy ways. Unfortunately my brother didn't get the job. The guy hired someone with more experience.

Sadly, the guy hired someone with more experience in a certain field than my brother had. But, he is still putting his resume out there.

She seems to be on some kind of schedule right now and is waking up around 4:45am. It doesn't matter what time I put her to bed. Last week there were a couple of days when she slept in until 6am but not this week so far.

4:45? Yikes, I feel the 5:15 alarm I have set is too early. I admit since I no longer am taking classes, I like to sleep in, but I am trying to avoid it, because I can get so much done, before my son gets home from school, if I get up early.

@Carmelanirel2 I am so used to getting up early that it really doesn't bother me anymore, except on the days when I feel really tired and could sleep in. Unfortunately my brother didn't get the job, there was someone else with more experience.

@simone10 Yes, I saw that about your brother's job, I'm sorry. I got to sleep into today because my son's school closed due to the little bit of snow we got.

Sometimes our little ones like Daisy will wake us up early because they want outside. Is your brothers job interview another apartment manager job or something else?

Yes, the reason she gets up is to go potty so I don't get upset. When you gotta go, you gotta go...lol. The interview was for a property manager of rental houses in two subdivisions here. He didn't get the job as someone applied who had more experience.
