I am late in publishing the Friday Forum today, but I think you will understand the reason. This morning, I had a consulting job interview, the second of two, and with any luck, I will have work again by next week. I am hopeful and anxious with anticipation. I want to see and sign that contract as soon as humanly possible. If I don't see it, I will be beyond depressed. Even though the work is temporary, and extensions will be at the whim of the federal government, it's work...work now. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
I also had lunch with a friend who has been trying to get me some work at his place of employment, one in which I'd be right at home. That may still happen, but will depend on federal rulemaking, and no one really knows when the government will release a rule that's already overdue. I really enjoyed seeing him and hearing the latest news about some of our mutual friends.
I must thank everyone who commented on the Friday Forum last week. You left me speechless with your support - and I'm seldom speechless. You also made me more determined than ever to try to keep Best Things in Beauty going. You made me realize that it's not just for my own pleasure. It's for yours too. I don't want to let you down.
I will have to do more in-store swatching and less buying. I've vowed to try to make this blog a little less costly to maintain. That will take some of the pressure off me. My time - hopefully as I embark on a new job - will be the only factor that might present constraints. I may not be able to post as often, but I can still keep writing. I'm pretty fast. Can't you tell from my typos?
I was humbled to read your comments last weekend, and I want each of you to know that they meant the world to me. "Thank you" doesn't seem adequate, but please know it's heartfelt.
Don't forget this week's giveaway contest for the NARS So Famous Set. The deadline is tomorrow, Saturday, June 15, at midnight. It's a pretty one, so make sure to enter.
