When last you visited the blog, I was practically beaming with excitement about something I couldn’t really discuss on the off-chance that things fell through.
Well…things fell through.
I didn’t get the job that I wanted, even after a second interview. The hunt continues.
I took it pretty hard, though. It’s been tough…living in an economy where jobs are scarce and the workforce is filled with people equally or more qualified than you. I haven’t received very many requests for interviews at this point, which is why I was all over this other job because it really seemed like something I would thrive doing. It’s not only a blow to the ego to not get called for interviews, but it’s scary because you wonder what is going to happen over the next couple of months when so much is going on.
The good thing is that this past weekend was spent with Sunshine and our kids (minus Rugrat, who we’re hoping to fly down next month). My dad drove two hours on Friday to pick up the girls and bring them back to his place, and I brought my son down after finishing work. The kids had a great weekend and I was pretty much smiling from ear to ear the entire time. Why? I’ve finally become “that dad”…the guy who not only loves watching his kids and future step-kids getting along, but also loves being a father to them. I just smiled repeatedly because I could step back and see just how awesome our blended family has become.
And what’s better is that this work week has flown by and I’m getting set to see Sunshine again tomorrow night for the weekend (I’m 90% sure it’s going to happen, anyway). I’ve seen her a lot over the past couple of weeks and it has only gone to make me want to move in with her even more. I’m actually getting a bit anxious over it all.
So with multiple drives back and forth to Sunshine’s city, work, family, and all that other stuff that people get caught up in…I’ve been lacking on my blog posts lately. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things soon, though. Writing is pretty much the only thing that keeps me sane!
Well…that and my AWESOME blended family!!
