I interviewed for a job that I could do with my eyes shut a month ago. The interview went "well" considering it was my first interview in nearly 6 years. But I have been keeping myself current on computer technology etc. So I am not totally out of the swing. Plus I have been working my butt off with the daycare thing, fudge and now Festive. Anyway. They emailed me the very next day that they were going with someone else. Ok. Mom hours (which they were fine with). Surprise No school days etc they didnt seem to happy with. Not a problem. Anyway, the woman I interviewed with just called and left a message. They are "wondering if I am still available" Guess the other person they decided to go with didnt quite fit. Now, granted. I could use this job. The money is good. But I am STILL a MOM. That hasnt changed. My daughter will always come first. Plus now I have other options that are coming to me. More temp type jobs that "get" that there will be snow days etc that I might need to either be home with kid or bring kid with me. And there is also the fact I have a memorial service to attend some time next week for my grandfather(When my grandmother died I had a daycare parent tell me I wasnt "reliable" when I took two days off to grieve and attend the service.) I dont know if these people, by what I felt during the interview will even be understanding about that. Granted. I dont think my mom, stepfather or FIL and my one MIL are going to suddenly die on me,, but heck. One never knows! I am going to call her back.. but I am insulted that I wasnt good enough before, but NOW I am. More amused though. I kinda feel like saying "Told ya so" Even though I have no idea who the other person that they choose over me is.
