No Office In Sight... *sigh

Another week has passed and I am no closer to being in an office on Monday morning.  *sigh

This morning's project was making my office actually look like an office and not a livingroom.  I am mostly done with that project now.

My pet peeve of the day is this... I missed a phone call regarding a job.  I return the call and get voicemail. I leave a brief, polite voicemail and now it's 2+ hours later and I haven't gotten a return call.  I did try again an hour after my first call and got voicemail again. Here's the thing.  Yes, I am unemployed.  But that does not mean that I have nothing to do other than sit and wait for the phone to ring.  And I know that you, Mr./Ms. HR Person, have a job to do, as well.   But really, you aren't going to give me a call back just because I wasn't sitting around waiting for the phone to ring?

I do have an interview tomorrow (yes, on a Saturday).  I have mixed feelings about it.  On one hand, it could be a very fun job.  On the other hand, this was a posting on Craigslist and the person wants to meet on a Saturday and it's at their "office" but what if they really just want to steal my kidney or something?  Yes, I know that I am probably being ridiculous... probably because I read far too many "true crime" books.  Assuming that I am not murdered, I'll let you know how it goes!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
