Now Comes the Waiting

For those interested, the interview went well. But unlike most other interviews, the lag time between the start of this process and the end result is ENORMOUS.

Hopefully, by the time DrChako returns, I'll know. Now I have more things to wait for.

But given that its a long-term goal, I'm trying to convince myself that this is ok.

Until then, I focus on short-term goals, like:
  • Getting through this week
  • Watching the Packers whomp some purple behind on Sunday
  • Seeing my in-laws (yes, I actually like them) next week
  • Thanksgiving (I love turkey - and days off) with my friend Jen
  • VEGAS!
  • Seeing my family in December (4 days is the perfect amount of time to love them without tiring of them)
  • Having the last two weeks of December off
  • DrChako reaching the 50% mark on his tour

Share your favorite short term goals with me and we'll toast them in December, bloggers.

Respectfully submitted,

The Wife

I'm behind... I JUST commented on Tuesday's pre-interview post, and here you are with an update!

I hate the "limbo" between interview and outcome... and can definitely empathize with your situation! Hope good news comes as quick as possible, and glad to see you know how to take the wait time by concentrating on shorter goals.

Can't think of many short-term goals myself, but here's a few:
1- Not fighting with my Mother over the last 48 hours of her 9 day visit. (Yes, 4 days would've been MUCH more appropriate for a family visit!)
2- Getting through another work week without losing my cool given a coworker's incompetence.
3- Increasing my online bankroll to afford a step-up in MTT buy-ins.
4- Getting to the gym at least 3 days next week, without again rationalizing lame excuses.

I'm sure there should be more... and I'm probably forgetting some important ones... but whatever.

Going back to school is a big goal for me.

Finding the time is a different story.

Goals... Short Term;

1- Meeting and getting to know, you in Vegas.
2- Getting a guitar to the good Doc.
3- Getting legal council for Pebbles. (let go today without cause and a weak package) I work there too, and I know I'm next!
4- Getting through the 'my mom' thing.
5- Getting bombed.
6- Wishing you the best of luck on the position. (ok.. long term goal I know, but I figured.. WTH? wWhat can it hurt?)

Got your comment over at my blog this morning... So, the Au Pair is hot but is "innocent with EXCEPTIONALLY high standards" huh?! Bummer, my type is more naive with exploitable self-esteem issues! I'm kidding, I swear!

Despite your warnings that she's likely out of my league, (and I completely understand the assumption given my association with this degenerate group of poker bloggers,) I still think you'd be doing her a dis-service not to explore the possibility. Don't go assuming I'm like Waffles or anything! :-)

I think I'm every bit the handsome, intelligent, romantic gentleman that you say she requires... (but then again, I'm sort of arrogant, so you may wanna take that with a grain of salt.)

Anyway, I do think you should consider lettin' me know if you're ever taking her out somewhere locally, and we can meet up for you two to draw your own conclusions. Just a thought!

Good luck with your short term goals... Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend.
