Not to be

Jeff was supposed to find out if he got the job with Expedia today. They called, it's a no. They said it was that it seemed that he didn't want the job enough. I just don't really know what to say to that. Did he need to have banners and a lighted sign that says "I REALLY WANT THIS JOB!"? I can't help but think that his illness played a roll in that. He was at the height of a really nasty flu bug during his 4 interviews. I suppose it's hard to really sell yourself when you are in that state. Maybe he got some of them sick and this is payback. {heh heh} Well, I am really disheartened. I am feeling myself plunge into the depths of despair. I can't let myself though, I have to help find a way to keep this family afloat. I don't know how, but I will find a way.


I made a cool wreath this weekend. I was going to post about that, maybe later. For now I am going to go and comfort my husband some more and probably cry some more. I am so SICK of crying.

OH HEIDI that is SOOOOOO lame!!! Seems to me that if he is applying for the job then he must want it! I am so sorry. Hopefully this means that there is something better onthe horizon. I am so bummed, I was thinking you guys would be headed down here!

I'm so sorry this happened to you guys. We've been at a similar place before, and it's the most frusterating thing ever. I cried and cried and cried and was mad at the world...I'll definitely be praying for your sweet family!

Oh no! I'm so sorry for your bad news. That's so tough, especially to get that far and be so hopeful. I'm sure something will work out sometime, but it's that trial of our faith that's so hard. We're also sad we won't get to know your family better.0

Well, having known someone who used to work for the big Ex, and was unceremoniously laid off almost a year ago, I can't help but echo the sentiment that there's definitely something better on the horizon.

I'd even go a step further and say that in the long run, you guys will probably be glad this one didn't turn out.

Prayers and encouragement for you, and if there's anything we can do to help, just let us know!

Heidi-

This breaks my heart. I wish that there was more that I could do to help...maybe there is...I will think and think until I figure something out. I love you and your family so very much. Remember that family is always there for eachother. That's what it's all about.

Warmly, Lisa

Sweetheart, I love you so very much, and I am so so sorry. You know that we are saying our prayers for you and Jeff every night. Try to be happy. I know it's almost impossible but I also know what an extraordinary and special person you are Heidi.
Loves and Kisses Mom!

Dave and I have been there . There is nothing fun about it. The only thing I know for sure is you will be alright and miracles will happen. Not always the way we want but miracles nontheless. Praying the windows of Heaven open far and wide soon.

heidi,
it's wagstaff... they are located in spokane. i believe it is a tooling industry. it seems like they are the ones who build big machinery tools for the co. for which john works.
he travels out there occasionally.
love,
dani

I am so sorry. I feel like I am reading a glimpse of my future. My husband works in the new home industry and with the "recession" his company has been doing major lay-offs for 2 years now. I just hold my breath and hope it's not him anytime soon. If he comes home early, I ALWAYS assume he was laid-off. {he hates that about me} Good luck with the job search. Prayers are answered and it's the season of miracles.
