Praying precisely

There has been some movement recently on potential jobs for T and one for which he interview last Friday and felt like he might be a strong candidate for and couple leads at his old job.

Nothing, however, in the city in which we now live.

And while I have been praying and believing quite as steadily as is possible for me, in between the bouts of not believing and feeling generally gloomy, that something good will turn up, this job for which T interviewed is in, well, Indiana.

It kind of came out of the blue and when he applied for it, he didn’t really think he had a chance but after a phone interivew (which he didn’t feel went particularly well) they called him in for a regular interview.  He actually quite liked the guy he’d be working under and, ironically, that guy’s boss is from Germany and so during T’s interview with Mr Germany, they talked a lot about the different kind of perspective you get when living in a foreign country and how while that is a great strength, not many employers actually realize that. 

So obviously if T spoke German, we know he’d be in like Flynn. (altho, what does that really mean, anyway?)

HOWEVER, it’s in INDIANA and the only possible positive side to that is that it is even closer to my mom’s and close enough to be able to pop up to her house on a given day.

After spending the afternoon in our friend’s backyard, planning how I’m going to get their veggie garden ready for them, watching Miles hang on our friend’s kids, and realizing how bummed our kind friends actually are to hear that we might move away, I don’t want to move.

But there’s been absolutely no job action here in this city for T and while there are some potential leads down south, we feel like it would be both foolish and irresponsible not to take a job if he were offered it.

A job in hand is worth two interview in the bush, as it were.

But I’m sad.  I should’ve prayed more specifically!

On the bright side, maybe T won’t get the job and save us from making the decision that neither one of us is very keen on but which would be the right one.  Because at least it would be a job!  And we could get moving on Hypothetical Child #2 and also GARDEN and also T being able to get home faster.

So there you have it.  I’m sure it will all work out, I’m just sad to yet again leave friends behind just as we get into a niche.

But I’ll be sure to keep you posted as we should know by the end of the week.

(p.s. sorry if this post sounds gloomy. I don’t feel particularly gloomy, just sad at having to leave friends again, especially t’s friends.  But then again, what would life be without a little sad in it.  It wouldn’t be real, that’s for sure!!)

    SAD is definitely a part of moving. But at least you get to take your 2 BEST friends with you:)

    I think that life could have whole heck of a lot less sad and still be plenty real, sigh. Been there so many times…saying goodbye to the places and people who have become “home.” I’ll pray specifically for a job for Troy that will mean minimal future goodbyes and maximal gardening and good friends for you.

    I’m going to pray precisely that The Mom will move to Oregon because I’m pretty sure that’s the only way to get you out here too.

    Glad to hear there are job possibilities opening up even if they aren’t near me.

    If The Mom moves to Oregon, that’s it. I am moving back there. We could start an ad campaign…”Move The Mom to Oregon! Move The Mom to Oregon!” Hey, how about a commune?? That way not only would you have your two best friends with you, you could also have your OTHER TWO BEST FRIENDS with you. Amberlina and her beloved and I could provide cash from our jobs, and M could issue forth another offspring, T would manage the finances, The Mom would provide general wisdom and equanimity and also perhaps some childcare in a way that doesn’t make her feel taken advantage of, and we’d all live happily ever after.

    The Mom is all FOR the Oregon idea, especially the commune thing! It would be the Mom’s HUSBAND who would have to be convinced:)
