Here’s the update:
1) Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and good thoughts and for thinking/believing in me, I have some great news!
2) Last week Tuesday, right before spring break, on my very last day of clinical wearing my blue smurf school scrubs and white nursing student patch, I got a call from HR. I was excited to finally be hearing from them so we could set up a time to interview on the birth center, but guess what happened?? Instead of the nursing recruiter saying “let’s schedule a time to interview” which is what I assumed she would say, she said “the managers on the birth center, would like to offer you, Zazzy, a registered nurse job on their unit after you graduate”! SAY WHAT?!?!?!?! I wasn’t expecting to hear that, and my ears were ringing and fuzzy all at the same time. My mouth went dry, my face flushed, and I started sweating. I couldn’t believe what I had heard. And because I was in a state of shock the nursing recruiter went on to say “let me tell you more about the offer” and I was silently jumping for joy and doing backflips in my head. She said “you would be scheduled 36 hrs/week variable”, “you have the option to choose whether you want an 8 or 12 hour shift”, “if you choose the 8 hour shift you’ll work every other weekend, but if you choose the 12 hour shift you’ll work every third weekend”. She finally paused and asked, “so would you like to accept this offer of employment” to which I answered with an unquestionable “YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Holy Smokes (no pun intended with the new Pope and all), but I was shocked that they were offering me the job without an interview. I even asked the recruiter and she told me that the BC managers were confident with my work ethic and skill ability as an OB Tech that an interview wasn’t necessary. I could not have been more thrilled honestly! My DREAM job was being gently placed in my lap, like a feather falling to the ground. AMEN AND THANK YOU LORD! AMEN AND THANK YOU LORD! AMEN AND THANK YOU LORD! There will be more to come as I find time to write on my spring break, but for now I just wanted you all to know I got the job!
3) The week after our house went on the market, we’ve had two showings and an open house. We almost got an offer, but the prospective buyers went with a different house for less money. No worries, I’m content on waiting and not rushing. We know God has a plan for us and we’re doing all we can which is all that is expected of us.
4) Also as I write this, despite my cloud 9 happiness with my job offer and all, my cabin fever has turned into cabin rage because it is currently snowing once again in Wisconsin with 3” expected. UGHHH I just want to dance in the grass with the daffodils and tulips! Is that too much to ask? Maybe soo with all my blessings, so instead I'll stay internally bright and just as happy as if spring were coming.
