“Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing.” Stacey Charter

Timing seems to be my enemy this week.
I have not posted in over a week as I was hoping to post when I was once again on a payroll.

It has not happened yet.

I still wait.

Of the two jobs I wrote about in my last post, one called stating I was still very much 'in the running' for the position. And yet, I wait. Wait for them to get approval for the added position, wait for the meetings and discussions for the expenditures of bringing in a new employee. Could be up to two more weeks.

The other job, I have heard nothing from.

Both were to contact me this past week. One did- late Friday afternoon.

It seems there is a catch 22 in effect here. Companies are also tight in this recession, unable to spend money. Which causes the job hiring to suffer.

And I, and so many are on the other side- needing some of that corporate money.

And so I have time-----and yet I am at the mercy of time.

Two weeks means monthly bills due. And no money to pay them.

Time means a good couple weeks before seeing any money even if a job were offered.

Time is usually on our side as the saying goes.

Here is hoping for a phone call very soon, with very good news.

Two frogs fell into a deep cream bowl,
one was an optimistic soul; But the other took the gloomy view,
"i shall drown, "he cried, "and so will you."
So with a last despairing cry,
He closed his eyes and said "Good-bye."
But the other frog, with a merry grin
Said, "I can't get out, but I won't give in!
I'll swim around till my strength is spent.
For having tried, I'll die content."
Bravely he swam until it would seem
His struggles began to churn the cream.
On the top of the butter at last he stopped
And out of the bowl he happily hopped.
It's easily found.
If you can't get out--Keep swimming around !


  1. Hope you get that phone call soon - or two. But you could call the company you haven't heard from, and reiterate your interest - the usual "Just wanted to touch base, and let you know how much I'm interested in the position."

    Blah, blah, blah. (Can it hurt?)

    Crossing my fingers for you.

  2. great advice BLW. Many have offered the same. I will try to call them and hope it brings more results than past attempts.
    Thank you once again for the finger crossing.

  3. Fingers crossed indeed - your frog is clearly a glass half full chap, hope you are too.

  4. Thank you Hausfrau, I think I am but getting a little tired of treading water. And welcome back.
