Concert trip and I hate my voice!

We're heading out to a concert tomorrow. I'm super excited and I can tell I'm getting older because I'm lamenting the fact that they don't have seats. General Admission, ugh. I have a feeling we're going to have a great time, get some good food and drinks and then head back home to the kiddos.

At work I'm doing screencast tutorials and I have come to hate my voice. You don't realize how hard it is to speak until we're being recorded and using text to speech for closed captioning! I had one 15 second clip take me 5 tries to actually get it right. And I usually have a 30 minute window to record in the mornings before everyone shows up at work and starts making noise. I could record at home, but then I would have to remote into my desktop and that never works properly.

3 more job interviews this week. I created an online resume and it seems to have gotten some attention. I just randomly applied to these companies that didn't even have positions posted and got a response within 24 hours. I was seriously surprised. Two went really well, one was for a super technical company and I'm surprised I even got a call back. That call was only about 7 minutes long...I feel like the queen of remote work searching.

Z is learning about being a good big sister and can't wait to start big kid school in September. Boo is all about asking everyone if they like whatever they are doing, "You like it mommy/daddy/Z?" I also may have made a mistake in telling them about our trip in July.  But it's so fun talking to them about all of the fun things we will be doing, beach, zoos, parks, shows, etc. I can't wait to see them with their little Zoo Backpacks in the airport. They will be so freaking cute!
