single mom


I did not get a call yesterday. I spent all day staring at the phone. I didn’t even eat. I was stressed, sweaty and depressed by the end of the day. I wondered if I should call or not. I didn’t want to seem desperate, and I definitely didn’t want to get rejected over the phone.

After an extended pity party, my old boss called me and said that the job had called her to check my references and she had been out of the office all day. She tried to convince me that she might be holding up the process. I felt a little better, but my spirits were still downtrodden.

At about 9 am this morning I get a call from them asking if it was ok if they started calling my co-workers and boss. They told me they are very interested in me and they hope to talk to me soon.

GAHHHHHHHHHH! I don’t know how much more I can take!
