I'd Miss the BBQ

I posted a lot of resumes this past month; one of which was on Monster.com. Yesterday I got a lady from Switzerland who was interested in interviewing me. Apparently they need someone to build end user training for their products. I'm guessing their demographics included the US and Canada because my online resume said nothing about speaking Swedish. I understand that most of those folks speak English but I image trying to do computer based training written in my native tongue might be a challenge. Kind of like trying to read the instructions for programming your DVD player. Those instructions were originally written in Chinese and translated into English. The pictures aren't that good either.
I did not respond back even though it looked like a great opportunity. Jilda would have enjoyed the cold, but I would have missed the BBQ and homemade biscuits.
There's a lot of government jobs out there but I understand they only review applications and resumes when Congress is in session and I was hoping for job in this decade.
Tonight at 7 p.m. was the last hour to get early retirement paperwork faxed into headquarters. As I mentioned before, I decided not to take early retirement and work for a couple more years. I should know this week if that's going to happen. After talking to my boss last week, I feel fairly confident that they will have a position for me. If not, I was looking for a job when I found this one....of course Jimmy Carter was in White House. Things could not have changed that much could they?
