Day 60 - I'm Still Here/Car Accident/Jobs

Hi Team,

Sorry for the long time between posts. I've been kind of busy and when I'm not, I'm just absorbed with life stuff. Diet and exercise have been going along fine since I posted about trying to do better.

My life:

1. I've been interviewing and doing some applicant projects and applying to more places. I had a really interesting position about which seemed like there was a lot of enthusiasm on both sides, suddenly got pulled off the table yesterday. Not sure what happened, but I'm pretty bummed about it. I'm expanding my search now. Anyone got a lead on some Business Development Positions?

2. My husband was in a fender bender (another guy backed into him in a parking lot). He's fine, but our car had about 2,500 dollars worth of damage due to the location and needing a new side panel. Not his fault obviously, and there were cameras backing him up. However, interesting new tidbit about Korea (actually new information to me): Korean insurance companies need a bit of pressure to pay out, so he actually stayed in the hospital for almost a week, just hanging out and wracking up a medical bill until they agreed to pay. I was busy visiting him whenever I wasn't doing my Kenzai stuff, which was the main reason for lack of posting. I said this was like legal mafia and having protection money, but my husband got a bit sensitive about this "mafia" word, since it is all very normal and casual in Korea. Such is life.

3. My little sister-in-law's golden hamster seems to be dying despite all our efforts to make it better and feed it medicine and give it treatment. Mother-in-law was quite broken up about it this morning. Sometimes it is heartwarming to see how deeply she cares for something even though I feel so sorry. Everyone really thinks she might be an angel in disguise.

4. I found a new pair of jeans that fit amazingly. If you women (sorry men, since you tend to be straighter in the lower half of your body, but forgive me if I'm incorrect) have ever gone jean shopping, you know how hard it can be to find a pair of jeans that fits the waist, butt, thighs (or calves, since I have pretty big calves), and height all at the same time. It seems like every woman has such different measurement combinations of these items that it is sooooo hard to find a pair of fitting pants. I tend to wear jeans out until it has holes where I don't want them, and then even will wear it with long shirts....
I'm pretty enthusiastic about this find.

Natasha, I am sorry to hear about the little hamster. We had to euthanize my daughter's hamster earlier this year, she (we always assumed it was a he) had a tumor and since she was over 2 years old the vet said it was not worth doing surgery?!?!?! I was surprisingly tearful and my daughter was, too, considering she was completely over the pet experience!! Funny how these little critters affect you.

Too bad about the fender bender and hospital stay. What a pain! I am glad your husband was ok and the only damage was to the car. You would think insurance companies would like to pay as little as possible so they would settle immediately.

Yay on the jeans find and getting through the grind. Fingers crossed for more leads on the job front, too.

    Good to hear you are still with us and the program is continuing. It sounds like you are juggling a lot and that is tough.
    Here's a little job pep talk. Every time in my life I've not gotten a job that I wanted, I've found a great job that was a better fit within a couple months. I believe this will happen for you as well - especially because you've been putting in the work in your search and on yourself. Wishing you well.
