    If I land it!

    If I land the job I interviewed for today I will celebrate by going to site 2 at Abrams creek with my son this weekend! She just looked at me with a blank stare when I told her. So I guess that means yes? I'll take it as a yes.

    Eh if I dont land it I cant make the excuse to spend the money on the food. That would be the only thing holding me back. I'm low on food supplies right now. Heck if I had it I would just take corn on the cob. I have a little stored back and I may just use it. I'm just nervous. I've been shot down so much lately I have slept in my hammock just so my wife can sleep without me tossing and turning from worry. Egads! I need to get out there.

    I know the feeling... Best of luck to ya! I know the stress of waiting is difficult sometimes {would they just call me already... good, bad, indifferent... I'd sure be nice if they just called already to tell me SOMETHING, ...check VM... no calls... wash, rinse, repeat...}
    But regardless you should definitely go do something with your son though - he'll probably love it - and it will probably at least keep you out of your head...

    I'll keep you in my prayers. Hang with your son if you can, it will make you both feel good. Keep your spirits up, and don't let the stress get to you too much.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Fingers crossed for you. I'm with everyone else on going ahead and hang with your son. Add the extra weight and take some canned goods with you from home and just have a good time together and give yourself a chance to clear your head. Your wife may appreciate the needed time and having the place to herself too.
