Sleepless Nights

Happy Monday, Everybody!  I can't believe January is almost at a close.  Weigh ins have been going according to plan.  This week looks like it may be a little sketchy though.  Two  bday parties in 1 day.  Bad choices at both.  It's not the kind of news I want to report, but I say it to everyone else ALL the time...it's a hiccup.  No dwelling.  Moving forward from here.

Things have been happening on the job front.  I haven't said anything before now because I didn't want to jinx it, but a couple of weeks ago I had an opportunity to test for some positions with the State of Missouri.  I received my test scores at the end of last week and I scored really well.  I am soo pleased, of course it means that there still has to be an opening, but if you are on the higher end of test scores you will be among the first people selected for an interview.  YAY!

In even better job news...On Wednesday, I have been asked to fly to Detroit, MI for a third interview (face to face finally).  I really want to work for this company.  They are in my field of experience when it comes to insurance and it is a remote (work from home) position.  Cue Hannah Montana (BEST OF BOTH WORLDS)!  I am really excited about the opportunity.

Now for my apprehension about it...I am flying.  I haven't flown in 7 years and that time I was all hopped up on the (prescription) Xanax, just to get me through the flight.  Obviously...that is not best case scenario for a job interview, so I will be flying without medication and/or alcohol.  I am not just flying once.  I am flying 3 times in a 12 hour period.  YIKES! 

What if I don't fit in the seat?  What if I have to pay for a second seat?  I am BROKE as a JOKE.  I am not any bigger than I was 7 years ago, but.....who knows.  They are paying for this flight, I have to get there.  Could you imagine my embarrassment if I didn't make it cause I was too fat to fit?  Ugh.

I also haven't flown by myself since 1995.  Back when I was running away from the troubles of having an adult boyfriend as a teenager...I was a lot more confident then (about stuff like that anyway).  That was before the days of airport security as we know it and I was going from being dropped off at one airport and being picked up at another.  None of this connecting flight BS. 

My stomach has not been right in days.  That's just my nerves and apprehension.


My weigh in was not so great today.  I am up 1lb.  Two bday parties.  1 day.  Bad choices.  Stopped counting calories at some point this week.  I'm on it.  I'm all over it, actually.  I have to work harder.  I have to stay on plan.

Pray for me.

    (Said a little prayer that if it is right for you, you get it.)
