I got a 2 month temp job today. It's a switchboard receptionist type position at a huge insurance company. It's not too exciting or challenging, but it's a job that goes from 8-2. I can teach my class in the afternoon and still keep it. I can schedule interviews in the afternoon and still keep it. The people seem reasonable. I hope this one works out. I will feel better at least bringing in a little bit of money. And I won't sit around thinking too much all day.

I feel relieved about that.

I also have an interview for a full time position on Monday afternoon. And a meeting with a recruiter on Tuesday afternoon. But I have this temp thing going, so I can ride that one as long as I like. They'd probably keep me longer if I want to stay. So I can take a real job if I want, or I can stay temping part time if I want.

Getting there at 8 will be slightly tough. I usually carpool with T, and he drives me to the subway, and he doesn't like getting up early. I'd want to leave the house around 7:15. Don't know if he can be ready by then. But I think we'll try. If not, there is a bus that leaves around then. So I'll have alternate transportation if I need it.

I still feel relieved. Less anxious. That is always a good thing.

I picked up my Cl0mid today. Even though I supposedly worked through the insurance coverage thing, they still didn't cover it. Not a huge deal, but annoying. I still think I can apply for reimbursement for it anyway, so I'm not that annoyed. Only slightly annoyed. But there it is. I start it tomorrow. Hot flashes, here I come.

I'm relieved to hear you sounding so much better. I'm sure it feels like everything is happening very quickly, but it all sounds extremely promising. You get to make some money while hunting for a better job at your own pace and still having plenty of time for crafts and other activities that you enjoy.

I'm really sorry about T's boss's wife's baby. That just sucks. I really believe your turn is coming, though.

Glad that things are coming together on the job front--I know that helps with the anxiety levels!

I think the 8-2 schedule sounds great. I wouldn't mind a job with those hours.

Enjoy your clomid induced power surges.
