Job Searching personal stories

A book meme and more waitin'…

Teeni posted a book meme I thought was fun, I have done it before but it still amuses me and it takes my mind off all the job stuff that has really begun to wear on me.

Here are the rules for the book meme:

Step One – pull out a book on the book shelf.

Step Two – go to page 123.

Step Three – read and write out the 5th sentence.

Step Four – tag 5 more people.

I am currently reading Snow Blind by P.J. Tracy… Here is my sentence:

“The four-wheel-drive light.”

Well, that was not as good as I thought it would be. Boo… Ah well, I tag frogpondsrock, Mrs. Who, Shamelessly Sassy, Memarie Lane and Life on The Ranch.

Oh and for those of you following the Evansville job saga here is an update, for those of you who are sick of hearing about it you can stop reading here.

The flooding is still an issue out there… We were emailed yesterday @ 10am stating “if you don’t hear from me today you will most defiantly hear from me tomorrow”. Well, we didn’t hear from anyone today, it has been almost a week since the first low-ball job offer and I am just getting sick and tired of waiting.

Are we out of line for being peeved about this? I mean I know the weather is a big deal right now but Evansville is not under water and all we want is a quick email or call with a second offer/ dollar amount. Last weekend we were told the second offer would be sent over on Monday, we waited patiently and sent a follow up email late Tuesday evening. Wednesday we were promised an answer no later than Thursday, now Thursday has come and gone… Still no offer!

I am irritable and am having trouble staying positive about it all, mainly becasue the clock is ticking and we don’t have time to wait. We halted the job searching after they were flying him out there, this was like a month ago so if this doesn’t work out we lost a month of searching time and only have another month and a half to get it figured out and find a new place to live.

Ugh, I am just sick of waitin’… Okay, rant over! Thanks for bearing through it, I feel a bit better now.
