This week has kicked my butt...I am so exhausted I don't even know what to do with myself! As I sit here on my couch procrastinating, I am DREADING the rest of my day. I just want to relax and be a bum today, but that's not gonna happen. I have been searching for a job for the past few weeks and have applied at a few places so far and I have gotten two calls this week for interviews. I had my first "phone interview" yesterday and I have an actual interview today in person. I REALLY, REALLY, don't want to go. I just don't feel like it! I mean, how many times are they going to interview me and ask the same questions?
Don't get me wrong, I am thankful to even get an interview...I just hate the whole process of applying, interviewing, trying to be perfect etc. etc. before you actually get the job. I am so over it already, and now I realize why I stayed at my last job for three years! Anyway, I'm trying to get out of this bad mood/ funk I'm in today and tell myself it will be worth it once I get one of these two jobs I am interviewing for this week. Say a prayer for me that one of these jobs will pan out! I know that God had control of all things and I am just asking him to put me in a job that will be best for me and my marriage. Those two things are very important to me.
Yesterday I volunteered to work at a job fair for military members who are transitioning back into the Civilian workforce. I'll admit I was dreading it simply because I had to be there at 8 am and I knew I was gonna be woken up at 4:30 am due to my husbands alarm. He was supposed to be off yesterday but they were called back in because they were going to take his ship out due to the hurricane warnings. Since it died down a bit yesterday they called off the underway and sent him back home. So basically we both got up at 4:30 for nothing, thanks Hurricane Earl! I really appreciate it!
I actually had a really great time at the job fair and I even made some new friends! It was so nice to work with people who were happy and friendly, instead of retail which is what I'm used to. I wish I could work a job like that everyday! After I was done working, I came home and had my phone interview about a half hour later. Once that was over with I was exhausted, but we still had to clean, grocery shop, get my husband a hair cut, and come home and make dinner. Needless to say we weren't in bed til around 10:30 and I was so beat, I think I fell asleep before my head hit the pillow!
I am more than ready for a break, and I wish my husband was gonna be here tonight to make me feel better and honestly just to make me laugh. No one knows how to cheer me up the way he does. But of course he has duty today and has to stay overnight and sleep on the ship, so that won't be happening. :( Have I mentioned how much I HATE when my husband has DUTY? Normally it won't be so bad, but with half the ship gone on leave the past few weeks they've only had 3 duty sections which means he's been gone a lot. Seeing as he JUST came home and hasn't been able to take ANY leave yet, this is a bit irritating to me. Between applying for jobs, having multiple interviews, volunteering, Isaiah having duty all the time, and trying to prepare for this stupid hurricane I have had more than enough of this week....Is it Friday yet?
