I didn’t get the job. Sometimes I wonder what in the world is wrong with me. The manager that interviewed me told me that she gave an offer to someone else and it was accepted. Then she said that I would make a fine addition to their team so as they grow she will keep me in mind. That is small consolation right now. I have been in this department for almost 5 years. I have been to countless interviews in other departments and interviewed for other jobs. I have not been offered another position (except the one they offered me 2 years ago that they rescinded shadily.) I am the last original person left in my department from when I first started. Everyone else has found jobs in other, better departments. What is the deal? Why can I not get hired out of here?
In other news, it is snowing here. We are in the midst of a mini blizzard and are expected to get a possible 10 inches before it’s over tomorrow. Thankfully, it is supposed to get near 60 this weekend.
Bob’s appointment on Friday was OK. He performed fine during the pulmonary function tests. However, his pulmonologist wants him to be on oxygen 24/7. Bob rejected that. He does not want to be tied to tubes right now. He feels that if he has to use oxygen all the time, he will become reliant on it and he is not ready for that. The pulmonologist was OK with Bob saying he would use the oxygen tanks he has at home when he feels winded and he will work on deep breathing several times throughout the day. Also, he is going to be scheduled for another sleep study because the doctor really thinks a bi-pap while he sleeps will help. Bob is OK with looking into that. We still don’t have any answers from the cardiologist yet but his pulmonologist said he would look into it and see what happened there.
On Friday I hadn’t yet seen a robin for myself but we could hear them singing at night before the sun went down. On my way home from work I accidentally hit one as it flew across the road. It literally seemed to fly into the grill of my car. What a way to welcome spring.
