Second Job interview and TGIF

I had my second job interview yesterday. It went very well. They still have more people to interview, but if I had to guess, I think they might offer me the job. I don't mean to sound conceited, it is just a feeling I have from how well the interviews went. Unfortunately, I can't take the job. It doesn't offer health insurance, and they really don't know when(or if) they will. I am soooo bummed. Beside the fact that I haven't had any other offers so far, the hours were perfect. 6:45-2:30 or 3:00, whichever I preferred. Occasional Saturdays, on a rotating basis. I am feeling quite discouraged with the whole job hunting experience. I have so much more empathy for people who are unemployed. It is not easy to find a job, especially one with good benefits! I know I must persevere. I will find the right job. I just hope it is sooner than later. But hey, it's Friday. I can't be bummed out on a Friday! Why is it that even though we got a day off this week, it still seemed long? Maybe it is just me. I have been unusually tired the last couple of days because I haven't been getting to bed at a decent time. I get off a little early today, and am glad for that. Happy Friday!

You have been under quite a bit of stress over this job, so I think that may have something to do with how tired you are. Hang in there. I will pray for you. The right job will come.

I have followed your blog for some time and have commented on ocassion. I live in NY and we have a program called Family Health Plus that families can qualify for on a sliding scale. I am sure it is a federal program but other states may call it something else. I would look into what CA offers. Based on your incomes and your health history, you may qualify for some type of health coverage that is cheaper than COBRA. Worth looking into although I bet you have exhausted all options. Good luck! The Vet office job sounded perfect...too bad about the health benefits!

All my best,

You guys should look at getting kaiser on your own...I think it is reasonable, especially if you think you will love the job...
