Today I Will Wallow - Tomorrow I Will Move On...


Do you ever wonder when you will get a break? You know the kind where something just goes your way... No drama... No waiting... No problem... No raised hopes only to be burned to the ground... Today - I am really angry and I will wallow....

This is what I am angry about: A few weeks ago - an executive from a company in my husband's field - discovered that my husband was available... He called the husband and started selling hard on a position that just become available... He said that he knew my husband for the past 23 years.. knew that he would be perfect for it.. He said that it was His decision on who to hire... He said he wanted the husband out there immediately to meet (not interview) all the team players.... After the last interview - we were told he had great feedback and he'll have an offer by the end of the week -whether it was verbal or written... That was in April... All of a sudden - the executive emails the husband and states that he is really sorry but he has to interview a couple of internal candidates (they posted the job after my husband was contacted - company policy to post) and to hang tight - the hiring will be pushed back 2 weeks... So our life has been virtually on hold - due to the fact that we were made to believe this was basically a done deal after the last interview.... and it would be a waste of time for the husband to interview the other leads he had going... Big mistake....

Today received an email - saying that a decision has not been made yet but..... the internal candidates look really good and the company prefers to hire from within if possible... Now - I completely understand this part.... What makes me angry is that why did he not interview the internal candidates first by following the company policy and if he wasn't happy with that selection then have my husband go out... What I am angry about is the husband was told that he was the choice.. and now he may not be.... It's not the job - I am angry about - it's the wasted time... the raised up hopes of possibly moving 2000 miles away...

I know I am suppose to say things like - God knows what's best for us... (I have said it many times) and He does... But that doesn't make me less angry... or frustrated... The husband still might get the job.. who know...? But today - I am going to wallow in my anger - so tomorrow I will be done and I can move on and help the husband to move on.. I need to be strong for him... I need to be steadfast.... I need to be supportive... I need to look up.... We I just need a break....

  2. I would be angry too. It's not the fact that they might hire from within, it's the way they handled it that is so frustrating!

  6. I'd be upset too. He should not have been led to believe so strongly that he was the front runner there. That was entirely unfair. I'm sorry!

  7. Sometimes I get so frustrated I could just spit! If it were me, this would be one of those times. Question...if they are that poorly managed, does your husband really want to work for them. I'm just saying.

  9. How annoying! I'd be irritated too.

    BUT, think of it this way, you really know you want to move away from where you are now, so that question has been answered. Time to start looking for work in other areas of the country. To me, it would be kind of like an exciting adventure.

    Sorry I keep trying to throw silver linings at you. I know that's annoying sometimes. lol.

  12. I'd be frustrated, too. At least you set parameters on your wallowing!

    You're telling yourself the right things...someimes it just takes a little while to get into the heart.

  13. I would be angry and frustrated too. We are running into some similar roadblocks in our job search too. I say the same thing all the time, "Just give us a break."

    Thinking of you and praying for you my friend. Hugs...

  17. I am just catching up with my reading -- and I have to say, I think wallowing a little now and then is healthy.
