Well I had the interview yesterday.

When I got in there, the man gave me a copy of the questions, did a basic rundown of what type of jobs are available and told me basically don’t count on getting full-time work just yet. Most of the casual staff have other jobs, but at least this is “your foot in the door”. So I took the questions and was left alone to write what I wanted down for about 20 minutes before the “interview” took place. Holy shit, I froze when I saw the first 2 questions. Of course, I did what I used to do when I was in school and looked at all 6 of them and said, omg, i can’t answer any of these. For a brief minute I felt like getting up and running as fast as I could from that place. My mind seriously went blank. It was more like a test to be honest, he wanted me to define two things for the first 2 questions. Ack. Anyway, I made up some kind of BS and relaxed enough to think clearly to write up the other 4.

Into the interview I went. I said, ummm, I’m seriously nervous and I think I had a brain freeze. I don’t know how well I’m going to answer these but here goes. He just kind of laughed and said, don’t worry about it, you get 2nd chances here anyway. I kind of think that I did ok on it, I definately gave some of what he wanted but did I give him all the info, enough to score a pass, who knows. There were 2 people doing the interviewing too. He asked me when he could get a hold of me because of my wonderful shift work, and I said one day this upcoming week. So there it is, over and done with. A huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Hopefully I’ll get it. But it won’t be the end of my world since I do have a full time job now anyway. Oh to answer your question Shannon it’s in Orthopedics, but I also work in a nursing home too, when I’m off from the hospital. Only until hubby goes back to work then I won’t do that anymore.

Anyway, baby took 2 steps today. She’s into everything and can’t wait to take off. I wish I had her used to a playpen because I can’t keep up with her! Well must go and bake cookies with the kiddies.

    i can’t believe baby girl took 2 steps! how exciting. and terrifying! we think henry’s getting ready to move on his own: he’s experimenting with letting go of the couch or the table and then just looking at us like “woah!”

    good luck with the job!

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! I echo Chas’s comment….how in the world do you have time for 4 kids, house, husband, job, cookies, AND BLOGGING?!? Also, I can’t believe your baby is already walking either. Mine is the exact same age is yours and just started crawling THIS WEEK. Granted, she just got tubes last week and I swear her equilibrium must have been off b/c as soon as she got tubes she was crawling everywhere!
