Good and Bad News

Bad news first!  Well, I didn't get the job that I interviewed for about 10 days ago.  Got the call this morning and then a rejection letter via email a little bit later.  Great way to start off the week, huh?

I had a psychic reading last year and he said three separate times during the reading that there was a lot of change around me through March 2010.  I kept holding out hope that March would be the month I'd get a job.  So when I did the interview and it turned out to be probably the easiest one I've ever done, I walked away feeling like I got it for sure.  Then when I didn't hear back, called to follow up and was told that the person who does the hiring was out of the office until today, I just knew deep down inside that that wasn't the case.  I felt good about it the day of the interview but the longer I had to wait, the more I kept thinking of all the things I could've/should've said or done.  I don't know what I'm gonna do.  I've applied and applied and applied without much luck.  I'm afraid I'm going to lose my house and that makes me cry.

Anyways, I don't want to think about that so let's get to the good news!  I won a giveaway!!!  Fiesty Three are participating in GABE and their giveaway is a fancy dog collar and a donation to  their local Shelbyville-Bedford County Humane Association.  I love that they're donating to their local Humane Society!  I got one of my dogs at my local Humane Society who has since passed over the rainbow bridge.  I picked her out and my parents purchased her as a birthday gift for me many years ago.  She was the best birthday present I ever got so I have a special place in my heart for the Humane Society.  There were actually 3 winners for this giveaway - the 9th, 18th and 27th commenters.  I admit that I did count the comments before I added my own but I miscounted and didn't think I'd won.  Then when Cheryl told me I did, I had to go back and make sure!  I was the 18th commenter.  She asked what size I needed and since both my boys are chi's, I told her small.  I figure whichever dog it fits best is the one who will have the honor to wear it!

Thanks so much for the Fiesty Three for making my day!  I was SO excited when I found out I won.  I don't often have much luck with giveaways and this one came at just the right time to help pull me out of a slight depression.

The snow has melted too so that's even more good news!  It didn't melt so much as turn into slush from the rain.  I will take rain over snow any day though!  Wednesday is supposed to be sunny.  Keeping my fingers crossed because I'm ready to experience the sunshine again!

Oh, I am so sorry about the interview.:((
Sometimes it just takes time before things turn around. Just do not lose hope and try to see everything positive.;)
But I can relate to the fear of loosing the house... I will try to think of anyone who badly want a job and doesn't have it, when I feel like not getting up some mornings to go to work...
Congratulations on the give away win!;))
Have a great day dear friend,

Hey you-Congrats on your winning. I know that things are very hard on you and we have talked about this all before. How we both have struggled so much--hard to believe that we are almost at 10% unemployment in our country while we spend MILLIONS AND BILLIONS on things that are pretty much pointless!

My point!?!

I am a SAHM now, but I used to do HR. I would love to look at your resume and help you out. What type of jobs are you applying for? It is a tough market out there. It took my husband the LONGEST time ever to get a job. I really hope that something works out for you soon.

My thoughts and prayers are with you!
