Well, I have a telephone job interview tomorrow that could be a huge opportunity for me and a big shift in my career path. So, wish me luck :)

Well, the phone interview went well but I don't think realistically I've enough experience for the job. The hr lady will give my info to the hiring people, they want to interview next week so I should hear soon.

So now we have to keep everything crossed for a while longer eh? How is the knee behaving now, are you glad you have a new one yet?

Here is a question for the grown ups: I have now progressed from sleeping on the couch to sleeping in a bed, and actually managing to get more sleep now Thing is it is the spare bed, and I'm actually enjoying sleeping alone, I know the old jokes about separate beds as you get older, but I'm not sure I want to go back to sharing. Any of you married folk taken to the bed/room each route yet?

Truthfully, I have a good job now so I'm not going to be disappointed if this doesn't pan out. The knee is progressing, I am itching to throw a leg over a horse and try it out. Maybe this weekend

As far as sleeping separate, I had to do the same until my knee settled down enough to take sleeping in the full wave waterbed my spouse insists is the only type of bed he can sleep in. I couldn't stand the motion wracking it when he would roll over . Anyway, while it was kind of nice to be alone while I was healing up I have to say I was very happy when I got well enough to go sleep in the master bedroom. I mean he was very sweet, and would tuck me in every night but I admit it-I missed just being together. Disclaimer: of course, we've only been married two years so even though we're older my POV may not be applicable

I usually lay down and go to sleep with DH. Then I start waking up every little while, so I transfer to the spare bedroom. We end up waking each other all night if I don't leave, but I do enjoy the snuggle time at the start of the night. Just me, DH, and two cats.
