Husband is also waiting to hear back on an interview. Interview went well, but waiting to schedule the "meet the team" appointment.

Good luck to all you guys on your job situations.

Also, applied to rent a larger house in town which happens to be an awesome deal. The rental market here is extremely difficult, so we are one party of some 25 who have shown interest in the property in the last 2 days. Luckily we are the first to submit an app. Hope we get approved and hubby gets the job...that would be homerun for us.

Thanks! Don't lose hope on yours...they might have gotten caught up in some other worky stuff or maybe they are trying to determine what they want to offer you.

This is so weird. I just had a job interview, too!

I felt like it went well...

Best of luck to everyone. Wouldn't that be teh awesome if we all got jobs at the same time? (Like, next week.)

We've had an extremely dry March, it's very windy today, and there's a large fire just over the next ridge. I can smell the smoke from inside the house.

Being sedated to have a tooth pulled. I'd rather jump out of an airplane or clear a building then see a dentists. I am very apprehensive.

I'm streaming a movie to watch while I eat lunch, but it's taking a long time to load. How long can I stand the hunger while I wait? Breakfast was over three hours ago.

I just saw this quote:

Quote:
According to a Colorado fire chief with 30 years experience fighting wild land fires :

” when there are high winds, tall grass and fire crowning in trees, nothing is going to stop it. Not 500 firemen, not 5000. No number of air tankers will stop this kind of scenario. These kinds of fires can move at 40 mph and wipe out entire communities in a matter of minutes. They produce walls of fire 10 to 20 feet high that move 40mph. First you see the wind coming at you, then the embers with chunks the size of roof shingles. Suddenly the ground all around you is on fire. You try to run but can’t. Then a wall of flame sweeps over you and by that time you are gone. That is what we are facing this week in Colorado. An out of control fire with high winds, high temperatures, no rain and several fires already burning. “

A family films escape from Colorado wildfire...

Following your wife out of such a situation is one thing,
but it's another thing having your kids in your car too.

What I'm going to do next week is making me a tad apprehensive today.
