Snow, snow, go away!

Ok, so as you can tell from my previous entries, I like to travel quite a bit. And it's pretty tough on the ol' bank account. So, I decided I was going to start looking for a 3rd (yes THIRD) job to get a few extra bucks each week that can be devoted entirely to my travel fund.

I've been worried, as it's not really a time of year that is good for finding a job. This has been proven by the fact that it'd been three weeks and not a single call from ANYONE. However, during the middle of last week I received a call to come in for an interview at Bath and Bodyworks!!!!

The interview was to be today at 3:30. Yesterday I started to get a little nervous, as we had a snowstorm coming in, and I was afraid the roads would be too dangerous to drive there. So at around 6:30 last night, I was delighted when they called me and told me there was a scheduling conflict, and they wanted to move it to Tuesday at 4:00. By then, I'd hope, the roads would be clear and safe to drive on.

....nope. I checked the weather again when I first woke up this morning....the snow has been pushed back a bit...starting to night at around 6, with a winter storm warning affective until Wednesday morning. We are expecting 6-8 inches with high winds on Tuesday.

I am PRAYING that if things are going to be as bad as they are supposed to be, that my interviewer calls and reschedules. I do NOT want to tell them I can't make the interview due to the weather. That won't exactly look good when it comes to HIRING ME. And I NEED this job!!!!

So, wish me luck on this...cuz I need it.

Garth, I think you're on to something.

Unanswered Prayers, by Garth Brooks

Just the other night a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldnt help but think of the way things used to be.

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again.

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
In her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the lord knows what hes doin' after all.

And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good lord
For the gifts in my life.

Some of gods greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

That song just came on my radio here in the office at work. It made me think of all the times I'd wish and pray for Erik to tell me he loves me....for him to tell me that I'm the only one he wants for the rest of his life....

...and you know what? I think Garth knows what he's talking about.
