Do you ever know what you really want?

For almost 2 months now I have worked for the school district in there before school program.

PRO'S: 
* It's only 3 hours a day
 * super fun 
* I get to hang with Owen 
* time flies
*I still get time during the day to accomplish many "MOM" duties

CON'S:
*It's only 3 hours a day
*we have to pay for Owen to be there
*I am definitely exhausted ~ differently ~ by 9 PM!


Because I am employed with the school I now receive the latest job postings/openings in ALL the schools as soon as they come available.

A few weeks ago I applied for a tutor position with another school
~I had an interview last Friday~

I crossed my fingers….the hours would be "school hours" so Owen would not have to go to the before program….aka: we would save money ;-)….The job would be 4 days a week/6 hours per day.

WooHoo~almost a real job!
MORE HOURS=MORE MONEY

At the interview I really started wanting the job.
Over the weekend I really wanted the job.

Then on Monday ~ while being a "MOM"
*cleaning
*doing wash
*planning supper
*making appointments for the dog, the car, etc..
*putting up the Christmas tree (yes, I did!)
*and exercising

I started thinking…..When would I do ALL OF THIS?

How do MOM'S work full time and keep there sanity? 
ha!ha!

I started thinking… "Do I really want this job?"…."Is this the right time?"
"Am I ready for this?" 

(I know~ seriously at age 44~ am I ready???)
issues? maybe

They said I would hear either way on Tuesday (TODAY)

I was kind of nervous every time the phone rang……..then, finally the call came………..



And…..
The principal said they decided to go with someone else.
;-(

What?  They didn't want me?

Well, maybe I didn't want them either.

;-)

I am believing God knows what I need and when I need it…..

now is just not the time.

Oh, sorry you didn't get the job - always hard to say why or how they make decisions.
I can't believe that you have to pay for Owen to go to the before school program - that should just be part of your working perks!

Nothing else compares to this....

That feeling right after you put away ALL the Christmas decorations.....you've dusted, vacuumed, rearranged the furniture in a brand ...
