Sooooo yesterday was pretty crappy...today is better. :) I am currently with caballero and we were looking at alternative options from the hotel the company had chosen for me. :) Wooohooo...let me tell you what happened yesterday

It all started at 7:30AM...I got a phone call from the relocation rep and I missed it because I was sleeping but I woke up near the tail end of it...about 10 minutes after that the people from Houghton Place (the place where I might be staying called) I answered it. She let me know that she was going to e-mail me some forms and she wanted me to fill them out and fax them back to her...(I didn't get them until 12ish).

About 20 minutes after that DM called me and told me he wanted me to chat with someone and they would be calling me shortly. He is sort of weird...when we talk it's like there are these weird uncomfortable pauses between words so I usually just go, "OK thanks, talk to you later, bye" lol...after getting off the phone with him the person who he told me called, called. We spoke for about 20 minutes...then after that I got up..checked my e-mail...wrote to you...then I around 9:30 I got a phone call from the orthodontist...I thought my appointment was at 11:00 but apparently it was at 8:30AM...so they told me they coul squeeze me in as long as I went right then and there. So no chance to take a shower *sigh* I brush my teeth, wash my face, throw on a dress and leave...I get there around 10:00AM and wait...they take me back and start popping of my braces...OMG it hurt sooo much...*cry* They decided to keep on the top front 6 and put a chain on them...*big sigh* it hurt like a bitch!!! I don't usually cry...or scream in pain...and I didn't this time either...but I was so damn close to crying...it hurt so bad... :(

By the time I got home it was like 11:45...I check my e-mail...nothing from Houghton Place (HP). Then someone calls me and lets me know that my e-mail wasn't working. Why wasn't it working? Because they were doing fisher@seattle.edu. hahaha...so finally I get the forms to fill out. I am looking them over and realized that they usually want someone to stay for at least 30 days. Well...I was put down for 2.5 weeks and that was going to cost me $2,300. That is a problem because Gillette is only giving me so much money and I was going to use the $2,300 as a downpayment for my apartment. So I called them and asked if I could just stay for a week. They said that they are already making a special case for me to stay only 2.5 weeks...so I think I am just going to stay at some other hotel. I want to only stay for like a week...and get into a place as soon as humanly possible. So...I am sort of stressed as I am not sure where I will be staying when I arrive into town on Saturday. *sigh* The money normally wouldn't be such a big deal as my mom gave me $5,000 but I used $3,000 of that for my credit card bills, because I wanted to get rid of those before I moved so I wouldn't have to worry about it...so I paid off my Victoria's Secret card, my Bon Marche/Macy's card...and half of my credit card. Then around 12:17PM I go downstairs and make some food. Half-way through my lunch I get a phone call from DM again...*sigh* he proposes the job with the executives and I agree to it...we hang up around 12:57PM...*sigh* I run upstairs...turn on the shower...then DM calls me AGAIN!!! DAMNIT!!! *stomp foot* He asked me to give someone that I would be working with a call...and I told him I would do it in 10 minutes because I was just about to do something *as I was listening to my shower running...sigh* he said it would only take a few minutes and she had to go to a meeting so I said fine. I give her a call and she talks for about 20 minutes STRAIGHT!!! DAMNIT...hmph...I finally get a chance to interrupt her around 1:37PM and let her know that I had a doctor's appointment to go to around 2PM but I would be happy to call her tomorrow or something. So she said sure...*sigh* I hop into the shower, knowing there's no way in hell I would make it in time...well...while I was showering TWO more people called but I ignored it...they didn't bother leaving messages (bastards) So as I am getting dressed someone else calls (JESUS CHRIST) it is the movers so I answer it...she calls to tell me she's not sure when the movers are coming...hahahahahaha thanks for the no news lady...but assures she will call me later. So I tell her that's fine... :) I am out the door at 2PM...I try to call the damn gynecologists...because I wanted to go for my annual so I could get my BC's before I arrived in Boston...now I have to find someone there in Boston and get my BC's there...*bigger sigh* however...they take forever to answer the phone and I am already so frustrated that I hung up and called the orthodontist...since they put a chain...it was creating a small gap and I wanted to let them know. They book me for an emergency appointment and I end up going back there to endure more pain...OMG this time I started crying when I got back to my car because it hurt so much...*sigh*

That's pretty much it...it sounds slightly trivial now...the biggest irritation was all the damn phone calls back to back to back...

So where do I stand now? My teeth still hurt like a bitch I am scared to go to the dentist tomorrow...

I am excited about my position as it will allow me great networking opportunities...

I found a new place to stay that will only cost me $620 for a week...and David and I are going to go to my house and start packing *pokes David*

;) So all in all!!! It's great!!! hahahahahaha as for the stuff I said I would have talked about yesterday...after my orthodontist thing at 2...I went to Eric's and fell asleep for about 5 hours...so...maybe later tonight :)

Oh...and...I just wanted to say thanks to the one who cheered me up, ;) You know who you are!!!
