That's what my problem is. Stress. Which in turn causes me to have panic attacks which feel just like I am having a heart attack. Which when I feel as though I am having a heart attack, I stress even more that I am going to die away from my husband and that sends my heart rate up 10 clicks instantly.

My EKG came back fine. My bloodwork came back fine. I even had to have a CAT scan of my heart and lungs. Came back fine. It's stress and IT'S THIS FVCKING JOB.

Boy, when they say stress can kill, they aren't kidding. So I need to start some sort of stress management counselling. I also have to be careful as my Dr. thinks if I don't watch things, I may end up with an ulcer. Great.

I went down to NYC this past weekend to see 'Wicked' on Broadway. It was fantastic!!!

Anyway, the first thing we did when we got into the city, was look for the LUSH store. Found it (slowly, we walked veeeerrrry slowly) and spent $85.

Now, I suppose I should preface this by saying my job has gotten so stressful that I have a Dr's appt. to have an EKG tonight. Lately, I have been having severe chest pains. They usually start on my drive into work and don't abate until the evening. Friday's were so bad that they went right into Saturday. The pain was so severe on the train ride down to NYC, that I seriously thought I was going to have a heart attack on the train. Not good. (That's why we were walking so slowly.)

Back to the LUSH stuff. Last night, around 8:00 I decided to try out some of my stash. I drew a bath and threw in a Dream on bath bomb and a dreamtime melt. Holy.Hell. or should I say holy heaven!!! OMG. As much as Frisky has raved about this stuff, you just can't believe how good it is until you try it. After a 1/2 hour, I felt as though I had drank an entire bottle of wine. I was woozy, relaxed and could have slept on the bathroom floor in my bathrobe. And I smelled DIVINE!!!!

It is so worth the money. I loved every second of it. I just wish I made enough that I could take one of those every night. *snooze*

We're not going.

Long story short. It's too fast. The industry for DH isn't there AND, they have to call my boss here. I gave them three other references but they would have to call my boss here. That's BEFORE they offer me the job. If I DIDN'T get the job? My life of hell would go from a 10 to eleventy billion and I would have to quit almost immediately. Plus, who says that Tom would even give me a good reference. He could throw me under the bus down there just to keep me here.

So, we're not going. However, we're going to keep looking. *sigh*

Got the Knoxville interview as well...

...just not sure when it's going to take place. From what I have been told by the recruiter, the supervisor there is a bit concerned as to why I want a position lower than mine and was worried that ultimately, I wanted her job. Now obviously you all know the reason...TEE. I called her and explained the situation and she understood completely. She has way less experience both in our field and as a supervior than I do and I can imagine that would be worrisome. I assured her that would not be the case.

I am so worried that DH is not going to be able to find something. His field is about as narrow as mine so...I can only support the both of us for a certain amount of time.

Does anyone have a magic 8 ball that would tell me if this move is the right thing to do?

I have an interview in Nashville next week. Still waiting on the Knoxville one which is the one I really want.


It's exciting but sooooo nerve wracking.

Tennessee, here we come!

In the spring, my DH always has audits to do. Strangely enough, two of the several offices he has to do this year are in Kentucky and Tennessee. So for our anniversary in June, I am going along so we can check out Lexington, Louisville, Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville. We have been doing a great deal of research into housing prices, job markets, moving calculators, writing off moving expenses, etc. I leaked the info to my family who thought the idea was 'brilliant!!' His family will not hear about this until everything is set in stone and then we will deal with the fallout. And there WILL BE fallout. I can only imagine the enormous tantrums that his family will throw when they find out.

That aside, it's very exciting to think we will be out of here at some point!! It can't be soon enough.
