And a Great Day Was Had by All...

What a fun birthday party! I have to hand it to Michelle and Brian for doing so much of the organizing, and for Steve for making the beautiful invitations! Brian staked out the perfect place at Clemyjontri--a nice shady spot with 4 picnic tables, secluded from all of the chaos of the play areas. Steve, Sammi and I got there at about 10am and helped set things up. I'm not sure how many people ended up coming, but there had to have been about 40! The kids and adults alike all seemed to have a great time! I certainly did! And Samantha and Matthew were such troopers--no naps, and a diet of goldfish, pizza, orange Hawaiian Punch and cake. Well, Sammi did finally fall asleep in my lap for about a half an hour. She just couldn't hold her eyes open anymore.

It was so wonderful to have so many of our friends and family members in the same place at the same time, to celebrate such a wonderful occasion. Wow. 2 years old. I still can't believe it!

On another note, I have a job interview tomorrow. My first official interview. I haven't posted about this before, but my boss has given me some time to find another job. Things just aren't working out. I must say, she's very difficult to work for, and I just don't have the level of psychic ability that she's expecting. I can't anticipate the crazy things she wants in the crazy ways she wants them. She said she'll give me time, and that there's no rush, and that she'll give me a good reference. I got hooked up with a few employment agencies, and have my first interview for an Executive Assistant to the CEO of an upscale interior construction firm. I bought a new suit at Ann Taylor last week, and let the hem out of the pants. They're still a little short, but should work okay with the shoes I'm going to wear. It's funny--all the years I spent in retail, and the 3 years at Ann Taylor, and I didn't own a suit! I was there to sell the stuff, not spend my paychecks buying it. Wish me luck!
