I’m Back…

Sorry for the lack of posting. I’ve been really sick with a sinus infection and I am on vacation this week. A lot has happened recently. For one, the interview went well and I am waiting to see if I get a call back interview. The HR representative spoke with the hiring manager and he was impressed with my interview so my fingers are crossed that I will land in the second round.

I went to the doctor today because my throat has been sore for 8 days now despite the antibiotics. Of course since I was going to the doctor, I automatically started feeling better (why does that happen?). One thing that wasn’t better is that my chest was still very congested and I would get winded very easily so she prescribed a different inhaler for my asthma so that my chest can clear up. Hopefully, I will be in tip top shape by next week.

I got into a car accident this morning on the way to the doctor. I was on the expressway (Chicago’s famous Dan Ryan) and a car in front of me thought he could cut into the next lane but couldn’t. So, he played car hopscotch and jumped right back into my lane and when I slowed down, the guy behind me rear-ended my car. I had to wait for the state police but despite the large impact, the damage is minimal.

On Saturday, my car started making the worst grinding noise and I knew something was wrong with the brakes. I was right. On Monday, I took my car in and I needed new brakes. That was $280.00

So, my luck hasn’t been so good lately in the financial arena and I am financing everything with my credit card which will have to be repaid with my tax return. I am looking to file my taxes by the end of next week. With everything that has happened to me in the last few months, I am trying to keep a smile on my face, think optimistically and believe that good things to come are right around the corner.

I am sorry about your accident and all the bad things that are happening lately. I hope good things are waiting to happen to you.
All the best! I want to finish my taxes by next week as well. I had a major shopping spree for my upcoming trip and will be paying for that dearly with my tax rebate which is not much this year...

I'm very sorry to hear about your accident, your throat and auto repairs.

Sometimes it seems like everything is going wrong at the same time but, you can be comforted in the fact that "this to will pass".

God Bless

It can only get better...it can only get better...

Is it something with the moon? Everything seems to be so NUTS lately.

But take care and I hope you feel better soon!
