This morning the co-worker friend called and woke me up to remind me about a job fair downtown. (Do I still call him “the co-worker friend” since I got the axe?) I dunno… I got dressed in business attire, printed out some resumes, picked him up and we went to the convention center. Unfortunately a job fair isn’t what it used to be. All the employers pretty much said, “here’s an ink pen with our website, please submit your resume there.” What a hoax, I could have done that at home in my pajamas. After the job fair, we had lunch at our favorite spot and caught up on the latest news. Then I met with an HR lady at the firm to get my COBRA stuff in order. On the way home, I called the little sister and we made plans to workout.
The sun was shining and there was a wonderful cool breeze, so she suggested we go to the park. I wanted to double check weeks 3 and 4 before I posted them. Week 3 was perfect! I was so excited, but Week 4 was still a mess. Despite the great lyrics, Patti LaBelle’s “New Attitude” just didn’t flow; and 2 minutes into the warm-up walk, you hear “Congrats you finished your runs for the day!”, it was just wrong. I was so disappointed, we worked on it till after midnight last night. I wanted to quit and go home, but that’s the great thing about working out outside, you have to go back to the car, regardless of how you feel. But on the positive note, with all that listening and critiquing, we power walked a little over 3 miles. I can’t complain about that.
P.S. I smiled at a skinny jogger and waved; and it looked like it made her day! One smile goes a long way.
