The Most Fabulous Couple In The World

This morning, Mrs. Nator went to an interview. An important administrator at a well know non-profit organization in NYC had heard such good things about her that she wanted to recruit her. Mrs. Nator likes the organization she's with and wants to stay there a while, although she knows eventually she will probably be looking elsewhere to become a Director of Development. Even though she told the recruiting administrator that she didn't want to leave her job, by the end of the interview, the woman was trying to figure out a way to create a position just for Mrs. Nator that she would like.

(Also, Mrs. Nator looks damn hot in a business suit. Not that I think that was the major factor.)

This evening, after I hurt my back, I called the Director of the vet clinic. I told her I had wanted to check in and touch base with her about what the head tech had told me, but I was hoping it could wait until next Saturday, because I injured my back and would have to go to the chiropractor, rather than making my volunteer shift. I emphasized that I really liked it there and wanted to keep volunteering, but since the head tech told me there probably wouldn't be a full-time position there soon, I'd need to look for something else within a couple weeks. I told her I'd be grateful if she had any suggestions for other holistic clinics that might be looking for someone like me.

By the end of the conversation, the Director was telling me there'd been some kind of miscommunication, and that they definitely want to figure out a way to fit me in the rotation and train me to work there full-time. We scheduled a meeting next week with me, her, the head tech and the head of the front desk, so they can work out a schedule for me.

And, I have to say that after stretching, icing, and ibuprofen, my back feels much better. This good news might just have helped a bit, too. What a difference a few hours makes!

Move over, Brangelina: everybody wants us! Aren't we fabulous?

WOOT! WOOT! WOOT! I told you my luck shalt not be denied. You go DA NATOR!!!!! I need to learn some of your communication skills. I just got kicked in the crotch today for a really good job I applied for with the American Cancer Society. It was only the second interview I've managed to get since August. (sigh)
