It's bittersweet.....

....the fact that I didn't get the job that I interviewed for.

I mean on one hand I'm bummed because not only was it an interesting job but I would have been making good money.

But then on the other hand I almost felt like as interesting as it would have been it might have been a bit over my head, as far as my ability to do it.

I went into the interview nervous because I really wanted the job, but came out feeling kind of shell shocked.

It was a lot more than the description had said, or at least more than I had imagined it. I guess reality in some cases is more intense than what you picture in your head.

So now I'm back to where I was, applying for more positions and hoping that someone will call me to interview again.

But now I know I will only apply for jobs I am fully aware that I am capable of doing. So that way if I interview for a job and don't get it it won't be bittersweet, just bitter....;)

Can we fast forward to next Saturday????

Because then Big Daddy will be home again!!!

He has to work today and then when he gets off he has to go straight to the airport as his main job is sending him to Pittsburgh PA to learn a job that isn't even his!

He has to go because he's full time and they can't send the person who's job it is because they are part time and a part timer can't be sent to train. So Big Daddy has to go and learn the job and then come home and teach the person who's job it is.

Make sense to you???

Nope it doesn't make any sense to me either.

And Big Daddy doesn't want to go. The kids and I don't want him to go either!!!

So now it's just me and the kids for the next week until Friday night when he flies home.

Think it would be possible to blink long enough and have the week already done and over with??????

Holy snot!

I HAVE AN INTERVIEW!!!

Earlier while Big Daddy and I were eating an early lunch my cell phone rang. I didn't recognize the number so I let it go to voicemail. Big Daddy said it was probably someone wanting to interview me. Sure enough a voicemail is left and sure enough again it was someone wanting to interview me!!!

He sure loved the fact that he was right, but I just say it was a lucky guess. ;)

Anyway, it's for a full time ongoing position working with a department of the school district that coordinates jobs for high school students with special needs.

Now granted I would absolutely love a job working with little kids, but at this point I'm not going to be picky and if I get the job I will do my very best.

But do you think if after a while I determine it's not the right position for me that it would be okay to start searching for another job? I guess it would but I'll be so darn happy to have a job, and one that's ongoing to boot that I just don't want to burn any bridges or look bad for switching jobs within the school district.

It's times like this that I wish I wasn't so anxious and worried about what other people thought. *sigh*

Someday a job will come......

(yet again to be sung to the tune of "Someday my prince will come")

Well my constant checking of our school districts website has shown that there is finally a new listing that I can apply for. I think this makes the 8th or 9th position I've applied for since the end of the 2009-2010 school year.

But dang it someones going to take a chance on me and at least interview me, right?

If they don't the lady at the school district office who I give my applications to is going to get tired of seeing me. I could swear that she sighed a bit when she asked how she could help me and then saw who I was.

Some people might have given up by now, but I am bound and determined to get a job with the school district, the schedule is just too convenient with having all three kids in school. And this latest position is for only 5 hours a day so there could still be a chance that I could volunteer in my kids' classrooms.

Of course with Peaches being in 4th grade now they don't ask for volunteers but I can still volunteer in Tink's and Little Man's classrooms. And I know (and love) their teachers well so it would be a pleasure to work in their classrooms.

Huh....you know I just realized that I never even checked to see if this new listing is for only one year or ongoing!

Well it's only for one year, but that's okay as then maybe a position will open up at my kids' school and then I can take them to school and go to work at the same place. Even more convenient!!! =)
