Ladies Who Lunch

Is there anyone out there?

Just kidding.  I know you are all there :)  I've been reading your blogs from my blackberry, and keeping up with your lives, but just not commenting.  BUT NOW I've got a wireless internet router for my tablet (yes, yes...I was living in the dark ages), and so I can comment!!  And blog!!  Woohooo.

I mean, heaven knows I couldn't be bothered to go into my home office and sit at my PC.  Can we say LAZY BONES.

I've been interviewing for jobs, but still haven't found anything that "inspires" me.  Am I being too picky?  I guess at this point I feel like I can still afford to be picky.  Six months from now, if I still haven't found my dream job, I'll probably jump at the first opportunity I get.  Let's hope that isn't where I find myself. 

The craziest part is that I stay completely busy all day long.  I thought I would search for jobs, apply online, have an interview or two....but mostly I thought I would be bored out of my mind!  Reading books, eating bon-bons and talking on the phone.  You know the drill.  But I find myself to be just as busy, if not more so, than before!

I've been playing the lottery.  I'm pretty sure I am supposed to win and just be independently wealthy :)  I've become on of those "Ladies Who Lunch", and surprisingly I find it suits me.  Why did I ever think I needed to be challenged on a daily basis?  To push myself to every possible limit to prove how competent I was?  Psht.  No thanks.  I'll just have a Waldorf Salad and a glass of Pinot Grigio, thank you very much.

And there you have it.  True Confessions 101.  I want to be a Lady Who Lunches, and who has her hair done and nails done and spends her days on the tennis court and at the spa.  Oh, and who gets on the treadmill every morning to assure that all of those lunches don't go right to her hips.  I've been doing that you know.  Treadmill every morning.  Bright and early.  Yay for me.

So I'm making an effort to start blogging again.  I need to make a list so that I can remember just what I've been up to lately.  Surely something dramatic or exciting has happened?

We did go to the Black & White Ball again this year....

Nice to see you back. I've been wondering what you've been up to. I'm pretty sure that I was supposed to be one of those ladies that do lunch but messages must have gotten crossed somewhere along the line and I'm stuck in the lady who works till she dies life....lol

I was going to send you a message in FB since you have been so MIA! I really think that if something happened to me bloggers may question my whereabouts before some of my friends!

Glad you are staying busy. It is so easy too when not working!

Love the B&W ball pics!

Um, Yes, I would love to be a lady who lunches! When I was home for winter break that's basically all I did-- go out to matinee movies and meet people for meals. It was glorious.

For a glorious 2 month time span I didn't have a job and was a lady that lunched. I could work out and do whatever I wanted to. Too bad I didn't have a rich tycoon husband to keep me in the lifestyle I grew accustomed to!

Jess said...

I am on the same page. I really don't think this whole working world is for me!

Enjoy relaxing :)
