Job interview - wish me luck


Job interview for a position that would not only be salary, but a $7.00+ per hour raise as well. No more weekends....covering odd shifts....etc...

And I can add another quad if I get this job.

Happens today (Thursday) at 1:30pm

Wow, that would be great! Best of luck! I'll say a prayer for you.

__________________
Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returneth, Was not spoken of the soul.

Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another, Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate;
Still archieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

LOL....I post in my sleep.

Interview went really well, ended up being for a completely different position than I thought it was for, but took an hour and 10 minutes and was with someone that I've helped out numerous times before. New manager would be my first choice.....that's good as well.

Only a couple others in the running, job didn't even get posted publicly. Should find out middle of next week.

Here's to good news, more money, and another quad.
