Sunday evening

The phone rang at 10 this morning...it was anderyn letting me know that she and Bruce were on their way through Georgia and about an hour from my place. I met them for lunch. It was good to see them both; it's nice to see my friends as they pass through town.

Did nothing toward getting my resume together this weekend. The difficult thing about writing a resume, for me, is highlighting the things that you want a potential employer to focus on, rather than putting everything in chronological order. I'm trying to go back into training and development after two years as a technical consultant, and I don't want the fact that I've spent two years away from the classroom to affect a potential employer's decision. If anyone's done what I'm trying to do and had any kind of success with it, and could give me some suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. I know that I should visit the library and pick up a couple of books on resume writing, too. I have seriously considered presenting my resume as a PowerPoint presentation. Think that might be a little too ostentatious?

Back to the job I have tomorrow.
