Odds and Ends

- I hired a new employee.  Well, I didn't do the hiring, but I did the interviewing.  Not sure if it was a vote of confidence or a penance for previous digressions, but it was a pretty neat experience to be on the other side of the table.  I've been in charge of interviewing/hiring the interns, but this is my first experience with a permanent paid staffer.  It took a full week, but I learned a lot.

- It was a sad sign of the times and our economy that we had people with 20+ years experience applying for a job requiring 2-3 years experience in the field, even with the salary we were offering.  We received over 120 resumes in one week.

- I attended a lia sophia hostess appreciation party and bought many beautiful baubles.

- The Batcave was painted and new blinds installed.  The landscapers never came to take care of the yards, so it looks like that's on my to do list for the week/weekend and carpet is all that will be left.  Then we list.  And pray we find a buyer and a seller.

- I am so geeked out about the Olympics.  Aside from my beloved Cowboys, the Olympics are the only sports I really care about.  And I watch EVERYTHING!  Gymnastics, sailing, the marathon, curling, table tennis.  Everything.

- We had a family photo shoot over the weekend.  I need to check about rights to the images and will post when/if I can.


  1. I like your life updates, and I'm not sure why. But they're very... nice? Please carry on.

    1. My blog is very random. In order to be a successful blogger, one must focus on a niche and blah blah blah. I, therefore, am NOT successful. Yet you, B, my mom, and my college roommates mom all read it.

    2. sometimes success isn't measured by numbers alone :-)
