hmmm, that's a new one.

So I finally heard back about my job interviews. And I'm a little curious, as they didn't ask me to go further in the interview process. They were "favorably impressed" but after careful review, felt that they didn't have an opportunity to match my "background and qualifications." hmmmm. I'm wondering if I could possibly be overqualified for the position? The first question that the Regional Manager asked me was how I felt about making a shift from working with large scale retailers, versus smaller local businesses like car dealerships. HR also asked if I was comfortable with the pay scale, since it was significantly lower than my past salary. I don't know. On the one hand it would feel good to be very qualified for my field. But on the other hand, this might not bode well for when I do dive into a job search full force. On the other, other hand, maybe the rep who was leaving decided to come back after her maternity leave. The nice thing is I'm not devastated by it, which says a lot right there. It's not the right time for a job, and now I'm really, really, appreciating my summer with the kids. Last one before Lukie goes off into the big world of school.

I had my grilled veggie salad again last night. Biggest Loser challenge is still in force, and since tonight is Lasagne Night, I'm trying to be all about "balance".

My philosophy is always about waiting for the right door to open. I'm glad you have the summer with the kids...and I've got to try that salad!!
