Follow up phone call - Check!

Waiting to hear back on this most recent job lead is getting tough. According to the interviewers, they were hoping to finish first interviews this week and contact people next week about second interviews, if not their decision.

I decided Monday that I should contact them again, as I was one of the first interviews.

On Tuesday I tried to write an email but deleted it.

On Wednesday, my mother (an HR Director) suggested a quick phone call.

On Thursday Robbie didn't nap, and I had decided I would make this call during his nap.

It is now Friday at 2:30 and I just made this phone call. I got voice mail. I left a message.


I have so much anxiety over this job it's not even funny. I WANT it. I'm trying very hard not to WANT it or THINK about it because if I don't get it I am going to have to MOVE ON. And I will. We've made this work for a year, there's no reason to panic. But I LIKE this job. I like the project. I like the people. I like the location. I like the benefits. I don't know about the pay, but the vacation... government employee vacation is scandelous compared to the private sector.

DeuceDad and I have held our heads high and weathered going on a year of my unemployment. And we've had some storms during that time. We haven't suffered any catastrophies, but we haven't caught any breaks. I need this break. We need this break.

It's pouring rain outside, and that's how I feel - like I'm stuck outside in the cold and pouring rain. It won't hurt me, but I can't stand it forever.
