For those of you who follow me on twitter or hang out on the blog's facebook page, you probably know that Tommy had another interview this morning. Thank you, everyone, for all your prayers and sweet words. Knowing all of you are out there pulling for us is just so stinking uplifting. You guys are amazing!
The job this time (as opposed to last time) is a lot more serious. Not serious as in "no one has fun" but serious as in "there is a lot of real stuff that needs to be done and you're the only guy who's gonna do it". His interview panel wasn't cracking jokes or reading from a script. They were ALL business. Which means this would definitely be a better job for him, but also means you walk away hoping you were the caliber of person they were hoping to meet. Because those business folk are real good at the poker face, I tell ya what.
Apparently they chose just four candidates to interview for this position and Tommy was one of them. So that right there is a bit of a victory. They also asked him at the end how far his commute would be and were happy he said that we'd be willing to move for the right job. And then one lady said "If we offered you the job, now that you know more about it, would you accept?" to which he replied "Absolutely". The boy likes a challenge and this job would put all his best skills to good use.
Okay, maybe not his woodworking skills, but you can't have it all, can you?
So, we're not sure how to feel. He wants this job more than he wanted the last one, but he feels less sure about the interview experience. But he didn't get that last job, so I guess that should tell us something about how you "feel about the interview experience".
The panel did tell him that all of their interviews are this week and then they have two weeks to select candidates for a second interview with the actual Secretary of State. Until then, we wait. And hope and pray. And fix the bedroom. And grow a baby.
And in case you've forgotten what a great daddy he is, this is how he spent New Year's Eve:
Building a play house with his girls using leftover construction materials in our pole barn. Cecilia got her first lesson in hammer usage. So, so precious they are!
