Rain Delay

Yesterday morning started off with me putting in an application to Argosy for a shuttle driver position. Guess I've resorted to looking for any job I can possibly find. Anyway the online app was a pain in the ass and took about 90 minutes to complete.

After that I had to go cut grass at the old house and then went and picked up Judi's camera and dropped it off at the bike shop. Came home, ate, showered, put in some more app's and then went back to BAM. I did get an unexpected call while I was at home though. Last week I put in an app for a new Nike store that will be opening up in Monroe. One of the recruiters called me for some screening. She said that I'd hear back sometime next week about an interview. Of course I'm not a huge fan of Nike but it's a possible job. I'm still hopefull that I'll get a call for an engineering position though.

I was also leading out the liesure ride last night from BAM. I was really hopefull nobody would show so I could head to the BMX track but I wasn't that fortunate. Instead 2 guys showed up on BMX bikes. I say guys because they were mid 30's! And smoking a cigar outside of the shop before we left. Apparently they decided to join to get some excercise in. And after 2 or 3 miles they were pretty well toast. But they stuck it out for the full 8 miles or so.

From there it was off to Kristi's. We walked the mile or so up to Yagoot for some yogurt. I think it's going to be a weekly occurance from here out. She had the original flavor with strawberries, roasted pecans and blueberries and I had strawberries and pineapple on mine. She wasn't too surprised with my selection. I LOVE pineapple! On the way back we talked about jobs (or the lack there of) and about moving in together. It's still a scary proposition for me. But, at the same time it seems to make sense. I'm there almost all the time as is and honestly I hate not being with her. Even so, everything seems so easy with her. And we go from stupid to serious in the blink of an eye without much middle ground. All the stuff that I thought might cause a fight we've talked about without ANY fighting. And the only "fights" we have are about station selection in the car.

This morning I was supposed to go for a hill ride with Bill. A guy from the bike shop who, like me, started riding to lose weight. So far I think he's down 20 or so pounds. But the rain is here and thus. No ride. So instead I'm writing. Hopefully the rain will stop soon.
