This Is Where We Are....

As many of you know we were suppose to have news last Friday on the husband's new job opportunity.... This is where we are.....

He interviewed a week ago last Thursday, Friday, Monday, and Tuesday.... The Feedback was very promising.. he was very well received.. I may not have told you that the person doing the hiring has known my husband professionally for over twenty (20) years and he was so fired up that the husband was available that he had him come out before the job was posted on the company job board... or whatever you call the online postings nowadays... After all the interviews and after all the traveling... and after all the excitement... My spouse was told he had to apply on line... umm okay....

So now... there are 3 applicants that have applied and company policy requires them to be interviewed... Things are still looking very good.... But now instead of a few days of waiting.. We are looking at a minimum of two (2) weeks of waiting.... We are very excited about the possibility of moving to the South... I'm treating it like a new adventure.... The kids are also excited... If husband of mine does not get the job - of course we will be disappointed but that would be okay too... (I keep telling myself that) You know - how it is when you get so fired about something and it doesn't happen... you are bummed but you continue to the next thing...

I want to say that I'm being a Pollyanna about this.... But in all honesty - I am irritated .. I don't like being in limbo... I don't like to wait... I have never been a patient person... My cousin recently read my status on Facebook - Which said... "Delays.. delays.. delays.. I hate delays.. 2 weeks worth of more delays..." his comment to me was "Obviously God thinks you need to work on patience.." I'm beginning to think He does....

I have decided to NOT watch the pot the next two (2) or more weeks... I am going to continue working... I am going to do some major Spring cleaning - throwing out, giving away, and selling stuff we no longer use.... I am going to prepare my field for the rain....... (ie: get the house ready for a possible sale...) and if the rain does not come... at least the house will be less cluttered...

  1. Limbo is The Worst. Being unable to make decisions regarding my own life (especially because I'm awaiting someone else's decision) is one of the most difficult times for me to be patient and zen. Not only can I not make big choices, but it's other people delaying my life and I have no control.

  2. I know exactly what you mean. But it's good you're not watching the pot. Just think of it as a slow-cooker, the meat always comes out perfect in the end. Poor choice of metaphor but what I'm trying to say is leave it to the hands of the Lord. HE'll always give what's best.


  3. Despite the wait, it's comforting to know that the Lord knows every decision we need to make AND what the results will be. Sometimes carrying on is easier said than done.

  4. I'm not good at waiting either and I'm sorry you are in this position.. I like what Veronica had to say about the Slow cooker though - great application!

  5. Funny, corporate red tape is the same all over. Soooo frustrating. Best of luck to you both.

  6. Good luck!
    I really hope your hubby gets the position. It definitely sounds promising since he has interviewed so many times.

    Oh, and thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! You are so kind! :)

  7. A clean house is a good more way than one! Keeping you all in our prayers.

  8. Oh my gosh, the waiting really would be difficult, but I hope the two weeks pass quickly and you hear something! I'm hoping for the best outcome for your family!

  9. That would be so frustrating! I can see why you'd want to know as soon as you can. It's a big move!

    Good luck!

  10. That sounds so frustrating! If nothing else though, at least he knows that he is thought of well and people would be excited to have him work for them! Definitely a positive spin no matter what!

  11. That limbo feeling is terrible. I really hope that everything works out for you guys. You have a good attitude. I'll be thinking of you. Hugs...
