And the Phone Call Said.....

The phone finally rang today; unfortunately, it was a "we've decided to go in another direction" call. About one hour of disappointment and wondering what my next step will be, and then I was back on an even keel. There are some other jobs that I'm waiting to hear from, and I know that regardless of how things are looking now, there's a reason that my life is playing out in this particular way.

It's nice to have daughters that aren't aware of the stress that A and I are under right now; as a friend told me in an e-mail, the only thing they will remember is that they got to spend some extra fun time with Mommy and Daddy. And despite feeling a bit blue because of the call, it was all okay when I picked up MB at pre-school and she greeted me with a big smile, a beautiful Father's Day painting, and excited shouts to her classmates of, "There's my Daddy!" That was my gift for the day!!

I'm sorry about the job. But I'm glad your daughter made you feel better. :-)

I, too, am sorry about the job, but the time you are getting to spend with these girls is very special. The right job is out there and it will find you as long as you are looking and open to it. Something you could do from home would even be a great solution.
