The weekend is here. |
A brisk (for an old dog, lol) and me this morning. It's in the upper 30's and sunny...great weather for a walk.
Hot coffee in the morning in my pretty cup.
Easter weekend...always is solemn, reflective and triumphant.
OK...the news...A couple of weeks ago I knew the new job people had decided to interview more people with actual substance abuse experience. Barb, my friend who works in the program, said I still had a small chance but I couldn't risk anymore disappointment or emotional output so, in my head and to all my friends/family, I just said it was over. They interviewed 2 more people with tons of experience in that area. Afterwards, Barb texted me to let me know that I still had a chance. A couple of days after that, she said I was 'in the lead.' It was torture, getting my hopes up all over again and the constant checking of my cell phone to see if they called. Well, Wednesday, the administrator over all of psych called me and said she just wanted to 'chat.' She said it wasn't an interview; she just wanted to meet me and to make sure I understood the expectations of the job. I met with her yesterday and it was a great meeting. At the end I asked her if she thought I'd hear anything next week. She said that it depended on fast HR can move and added, "We are really eager to move this forward." When I got back to my office, HR had already sent me the email with the link to send to my references to complete. I'll believe it when I get the call but it seems like 99.5% that I am going to get the new job afterall!!!!!!!!!!
